[1] Guido van Rossum (Google) is the inventor of Python and has managed
its growth and development for more than a decade. Guido was awarded
the Free Software Foundation Award in 2002 and Dr.Dobb's 1999
Excellence in Programming Award. Guido works at Google and spends
half of his time on Python.

[2] Jim Hugunin (Microsoft) is the creator of numerous innovations that
take Python into new application domains. Jim's most recent project,
IronPython integrates Python into Microsoft's .NET runtime. Jim's
previous project, Jython is Python for the Java runtime and was the
second production-quality implementation of Python. Before that,
Jim's Numeric Python adapted Python to the needs of number crunching
applications. Jim works at Microsoft adapting the .NET runtime to
the needs of dynamic languages like Python.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
