This Week in News: Meet Your New Pair-Programming Partner

Episode 12 · January 26th, 2018 · 27 mins 50 secs

About this Episode

This week on The New Stack Context weekly newswrap podcast, we talk with with TNS San Francisco correspondent Alex Handy about a fascinating story he wrote on a startup in Israel called Codota that’s applied machine-learning to the concept of pair programming. It's developing a coding tool that would essentially substitute a machine for one of the two developers in a pair-programming team. The software is using machine-learning to augment and complement the abilities of the developer.

We also discussed BeyondCorp, which is Google’s approach to enterprise security. The company has ditched VPNs in favor of the concept of “zero-trust” or “perimeter-less” security. Our recent article about BeyondCorp has seen a lively discussion on Hacker News.

TNS Editorial Director Libby Clark hosted this episode and was joined by TNS founder and Editor-in-Chief Alex Williams and TNS Managing Editor Joab Jackson.
