Issa bill would kill a big H-1B loophole

InfoWorld - Fri, 07/22/2016 - 07:46

In 1998, Congress raised the H-1B cap and then set some controversial H-1B visa rules. It prohibited the largest users of H-1B visa -- firms employing 15 percent or more visa workers -- from displacing U.S. workers. They also are required to make a "good faith" effort to recruit a U.S. worker for a position.

Congress then inserted a massive loophole.

U.S. workers can be displaced by H-1B-dependent employers -- such as IT outsourcing firms -- provided the visa holder has a master's degree or the company pays visa workers at least $60,000. This salary level has not changed in 18 years.

Google Dart gets its own version of the Angular 2 framework

InfoWorld - Fri, 07/22/2016 - 06:33

Google's Dart language will get its very own version of the company's Angular 2 framework to better leverage Dart's own capabilities. But the plan has raised concern that it could actually hurt the fledgling language.

The Angular code base will be split into two flavors: a Dart version -- referred to as AngularDart or Angular 2 Dart -- and a TypeScript/JavaScript version, Google said this week.

[ Download InfoWorld’s essential guide to microservices and learn how to create modern web and mobile applications that scale. | Cut to the key news in technology trends and IT breakthroughs with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter, our summary of the top tech happenings. ]

This division provides a version of Angular 2 that feels more like idiomatic Dart, is faster, and will leverage Dart features that could not work with the TypeScript version, Google's Filip Hracek said. Angular Dart source code will be "cleaner" for developers, and the Dart and Angular teams pledged that issues would be closed quicker and that documentation can be written with a Dart focus.
