    Throughout 2020, we have been adding new features and enhancements to our ECL Extension for VS Code and the latest version is available from the Visual Studio Marketplace. In this blog, Gordon Smith provides details of the feature highlights and enhancements recently added. These include simplified launch configurations, new workunit history view, a results viewer, access to additional resources such as bundles and client tools, the ability to insert record definitions, localisations to make this tool more accessible to those who speak a language other than English and a note about previously added Syntax Colouring that was adopted by GitHub earlier this year.

    One of the biggest concerns that we have in education is the safety of our school campuses. To address this problem, the American Heritage School robotics team developed an autonomous, mobile robot that gathers and provides vital information to school security personnel, and, if necessary, first responders. This blog details the facial recognition training project completed by HPCC Systems summer intern, Jack Fields, a 12th grade high school student at American Heritage School in Delray, Florida.
