HL7 FHIR - Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources

FHIR is a next generation standards framework created by HL7. FHIR solutions are built from a set of modular components called "Resources". These resources can easily be assembled into working systems that solve real world clinical and administrative problems at a fraction of the price of existing alternatives. FHIR is suitable for use in a wide variety of contexts – mobile phone apps, cloud communications, EHR-based data sharing, server communication in large institutional healthcare providers, and much more. - Source: Why FHIR is better - hl7.org

 

Does Fitbit have time to pull off its digital healthcare transformation & How application developers can utilize the Device API on the Fitbit device

The ongoing debate around Fitbit will revolve around whether the company has the time to execute its business model shift. - Sources: ZDNET & Fitbit Developer - Communications Guide 

 

Benefits of continous integration & How to set up a continous Integration and Delivery CI/CD pipeline

The benefits of Continuous Integration, Delivery, and Deployment are clear. However, the process to building the pipeline to do Continuous Delivery or Deployment isn’t always easy. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. We believe that modern development teams are working their way up to Continuous Deployment. That’s why we suggest getting started with automated testing through Continuous Integration today. With automated tests on each new commit, Continuous Integration is a great way to increase code quality. - Sources: DZONE, 9 benefits of continous integration & AMAZON, Set Up a CI/CD Pipeline on AWS

 

The world's first phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor is here

For years, rumors have circulated about companies like Samsung and Apple attempting to integrate fingerprint sensors into their smartphones’ displays — and now someone’s actually gone and done it. Vivo, a major Chinese smartphone brand owned by the same company behind Oppo and OnePlus, has announced the X20 Plus UD, the first ever smartphone to ship with the technology. - Source: The Verge

 

Angular 5 vs. React vs. Vue

Nowadays, technologies are growing very fast. Every day, week and month more and more tools appear to solve different problems. In this article, I want to compare 3 of the most popular technologies for the front end development: Angular 5, React, and Vue. I am going to compare them from the perspective of the project architect or just a developer who is going to choose a framework for the new project. - Source: ITNEXT, Michael Petrosyan
