#AboutLastWeek: Top 100 Java libraries, Angular 2 best assets and Google gives Oracle a run for its money
Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we watched Google score a major victory against Oracle and we learned from Takipi that going through Github and searching for popular Java libraries has its perks. Plus, we celebrated Towel Day and we analyzed Angular 2’s best assets. But that’s not all folks!
We talked to Angelo Zerr, Eclipse E4 CSS Engine creator, Eclipse Nebula committer and Eclipse WTP Incubator committer, about the TypeScript compiler for Eclipse, its advantages and the features that are included in this new plug-in, as well as the ones that may be implemented in future releases.
The legal battle between Google and Oracle could have influenced not only the fate of Android, but also the future of programming.

Choosing the right framework for a project is still considered to be the most daunting task by business and site owners looking to strengthen their web presence. No worries, we have compiled a list of frameworks associated with Node.
IBM’s World Community Grid has recently launched the #OpenZika project. The platform which encourages volunteers to turn their personal computers and Android mobile phones and tablets already has the support of roughly 750,000 people, as well as 470 institutions across 80 nations. In short, all you need to do is download an app and allow researchers to (quietly) run calculations on your devices.
