Project Latte: How Microsoft wants to integrate Android apps into Windows 10

Windows 10 may soon be able to run mobile apps designed for Android. Update on the technical details that allow this porting.  Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to run their Android apps on Windows 10 with little or no code changes. How? 'Or' What ? By packaging them as an MSIX app package format and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed " Latte ," according to Windows Central, which says it will go into production next year. Microsoft had already tried to put Android applications under Windows 10 with the Astoria project, which has since aborted. The Latte project is probably powered by the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). But Microsoft will need to provide its own Android subsystem for Google's OS apps to actually work. Microsoft has announced that the WSL will soon be compatible with GPU acceleration, which should improve the performance of applications runnin

"Everyone is looking for their place": between galley and resourcefulness, seasonal workers faced with the health crisis

On average, one in two students works every summer, most often to finance their studies. This is the case for Jade, 21, who is entering a master's degree in psychology in September in Poitiers. Over the past three years, it only took three weeks for him to find a summer contract. This year after the coronavirus crisis, she looked in the hotel industry, restaurants, tourism: "Despite my B license, my car, and no, refusal of applications! A hundred, that seems absurd to me, Jade tells franceinfo. There, I come out a little discouraged. "

Less offers, more requests

With the coronavirus crisis, there are fewer offers, more demands and working conditions have deteriorated. To get around these difficulties, Charlotte, a 26-year-old pastry chef and seasonal worker, sought work in another sector. A sector that the crisis has not affected: the garden center. "Everyone is actually crying. Everyone is looking for their place and I said to myself, even if it means being underpaid, I'm going to change jobs, I'm going to learn something else," explains Charlotte. As for the year which will continue, "I think it will be very hard", she believes "and besides, I do not risk doing my job again anytime soon".

We still have 50 employees on partial unemployment so it is not even conceivable to take a seasonal worker.

The same trend is observed for restaurant owners. In the 5th arrondissement of Paris, usually popular with tourists, the terraces are deserted. Franck Grant runs Village Rossard. Since the start of the summer, the restaurateur has lost more than 60% of its turnover. "The scheme is very simple: no tourists, no customers, no money", he laments.



Contracts in logistics

But other sectors continue to look for people ensures Sylvain Carrer. This sector manager of Proman interim agencies from Bordeaux to Toulouse underlines that these are "often contracts that are linked to logistics activities, order pickers, handlers, positions in agriculture or agrifood companies". The agricultural sector, for its part, will need seasonal workers for a few more weeks as the harvest will soon begin, followed by the picking of apples and pears.
