It is interesting to note that the current Computer Science curriculum run by our schools is way behind what the industry needs. No need to match make, we all know that QBasic, COBOL , FORTRAN 77 etc are no longer required skills where you have C#, Java, Scala, Spring, Ruby, Python, PHP, etc., making waves. This is not to say that computer science is all about programming. After all what will the world be like without exciting stuffs like compiler construction, algorithms, pointers, logic, system design, UI/UX etc.
The problem with computer science as a course in Nigeria is a manifestation of the problem with Nigeria but there are things we can do to fix the menace. Part of it is to collaborate with the Private sector to bring industry experience back to the classroom and revamp the curriculum. You can read the rest of the solutions on my blog post.

Web notifications are one of the newer features added into modern browsers. They are intended as alerts for the user outside of the web page context.

We usually see this notifications when using web apps like facebook, twitter and some news sites.

I have implemented it using few lines of JavaScript. You can now download and use for your web apps. Use cases includes but not limited to push notifications for reminders, news, events etc to desktop users in real time from your web apps.

Download from here https://github.com/dkdimgba/browser-notification
