It does not need to replace the standard form based authentication, quite the contrary, social login complements it. Login with social accounts is a straightforward process and it saves the users a lot of time, as they won't need to fill the whole form. They just sign up with their social account and they can log into the website with just a few clicks.

Rockstar is accelerating the development of the GTA VI. People have been waiting for years, but Rockstar kept its focus on GTA Online. Apparently, the company is fully focusing on GTA VI. The company recently published a report stating that most of its resources are now focused on GTA VI development. For that reason, Red Dead Online will not receive big updates for the time being. Now, the studio is working on GTA VI and is searching for more talented developers to push things further. It needs a lot of talents to keep producing its new large-scale project.
Enumerations, or Enums allow a developer to define a custom type that is limited to one of a discrete number of possible values. That can be especially helpful when defining a domain model, as it enables making invalid states unrepresentable. In other words, enums are a restricting layer on top of classes and class constants, intended to provide a way to define a closed set of possible values for a type.
Raspberry Pi has introduced a successor to last year’s Pico, a $4 microcontroller based on the RP2040 chip the company designed itself. The new model is called the Pico W. It’s basically the same hardware, but it adds, as the name suggests, an 802.11n Wi-Fi radio, making it useful for putting together IoT projects and the like. It’s also more expensive than the standard Pico, coming in at $6.
Based on the analysis of 190 studies, the average silent reading rate for adults in English is 238 words per minute for non-fiction and 260 words per minute for fiction. The difference can be predicted by taking into account the length of the words, with longer words in non-fiction than in fiction.
A leader of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission said he has asked Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores over China-related data security concerns. The wildly popular short video app is owned by Chinese company ByteDance.

GitLab is one of fastest growing private software companies. The company provides a central server that manages git repositories and is used to simplify the administration tasks of many corporations worldwide. Their platform allows third party websites to use GitLab as registration or login option with just a few clicks. That is the social login and it allows customers to bring their existing social identities and use them to register and log in without creating a new account explicitly. It saves a lot of time for users and makes the life easier as we don't need to remember all those credentials for different websites anymore.
When you type code or comments, GitHub Copilot suggests the next line of code. But it’s not only a single word or line of code. GitHub Copilot can suggest complete methods, boilerplate code, whole unit tests, and even complex algorithms.
Since the launch of GitHub Copilot technical preview last year, it’s become abundantly clear that AI is one of the best tools to empower the next generation of developers. Already, AI is acting as a copilot in our daily lives. It’s helping us write emails and essays, automatically generate photo albums of our loved ones, and even acts as a digital assistant to help us order groceries. But until now, AI has stopped short of improving code, leaving the process of developing software almost completely manual. That’s changing now. Now GitHub Copilot is generally available to individual developers.
An interface is a programming structure that allows the computer to enforce certain properties on an object. In object oriented programming, an interface generally defines the set of methods that an instance of a class that has that interface could respond to. It is actually a concept of abstraction and encapsulation.
