Posted in Commentary with tags on November 21, 2018 by itnerd

Coding for Veterans announces the official launch of the program and is honoured for the opportunity to take part in the TSX Market Open at the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) on Friday November 23rd.

Employers are literally lining-up to hire the first grads from this program. Jeff Musson, CEO of Dynamite Network envisioned the Coding for Veterans program one year ago.  Since that time, the program has developed a collaboration with the Toronto Campus of Northeastern University to help veterans’ transition to the civilian economy.  The outcomes of this industry led program meets an urgent need for cyber security and data analytics expertise in the Canadian IT industry.

What makes this program unique from other Veteran’s programs is that it focuses on the IT jobs openings and then works back to the individual veterans in order to guarantee that their skill set aligns with the job openings.  This is a simple, but unique approach that has been developed to ensure the program’s success.

Senior industry and government leaders along with veterans and current serving members of the military are showing support to the program.  They will be on hand at the TSX market open to answer questions about the need and opportunity that the Coding for Veterans program provides.

John Proctor, CEO of Martello Technologies Group Inc. the global leading provider of network performance management solutions for real-time communications, will join Coding for Veterans to ring the bell at the TSX. This is the second time that Mr. Proctor will ring the opening bell this year – on September 12, 2018 Martello debuted on the TSX Venture Exchange, the first Ottawa-headquartered tech company to go public on the TSXV since 2015.

Coding for Veterans wants to thank the TSX for the support they have given towards this program. The TSX Market Opens are broadcast live on television and live streamed on YouTube. The event will also be featured on and, and shared through Twitter and Facebook.

ASUS has announced that the ZenFone 5 Series (ZenFone 5, ZenFone 5Z and ZenFone 5Q) is scheduled to receive the Android 9.0 Pie system update in the very near future.

The new software will be distributed automatically via a firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) update according to the schedule listed below.

Once the update is available, a notification will automatically appear on the phone’s status bar. The user just needs to tap on the notification to download the update.

Once download is completed, a pop-up notification to install the update will appear: tapping ‘Install’ will then start the installation.

The device will reboot twice during the installation of the update. Users should not turn off the device until the home screen appears.

It may take about one week for the system to complete the auto push. If the update notification/prompt is not received, it can be checked and initiated manually via the Settings > System > System Updates menu path.
