Built on open source principles, the Call for Code Global Challenge asks developers and problem solvers to form teams and develop solutions that address specific problems in unique, clearly demonstrable ways. The most successful solutions are those deemed to have the greatest community impact with the smallest technological footprint.
We had a chat with Robert Treat, Postgres Technical Fellow at the open source data platform company Instaclustr about PostgreSQL’s popularity, its use cases, and which open source technologies it pairs with. Learn how IT teams and organizations can overcome hurdles when scaling PostgreSQL.
The world of cybersecurity is rapidly becoming an ML arms race, where security pros arm themselves with ML and AI-enhanced defensive tools, while the bad guys use the technology to amplify the threat they pose. See what open source machine learning project is helping hunt security flaws.
Join Mike Milinkovic, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, as he shares his thoughts about the future of open source in 2021 and beyond. He covers cloud native Java and Jakarta EE, IoT and edge computing, and automotive software. It looks set to be another big year for open source…
At this time of year, the tech community pays tribute to Ada Lovelace, a female icon and the world’s first programmer. She’d be pleased to learn that centuries later women are still following in her footsteps, pushing boundaries and even mobilising communities to develop software that has a social impact. That’s exactly what Alexandra Machado, the head of Red Hat’s Social Innovation Programme, has been doing. Here she explains how non-profit organisations are using open source software to address some of the world’s pressing issues.
Here at JAXenter, we love taking a look at new, interesting, or otherwise noteworthy programming languages. The Chaos Programming Language takes inspiration from the best parts of languages like TypeScript, C, and Python.
Slashdata’s Developer Economics report examines data from over 17,000 developers from around the world. See what devs think about open source, the rise of Kotlin for mobile programming, and what emerging tech is trending.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we spoke to Red Hat’s Jan Wildeboer about open source software development, interviewed the creator of Eclipse Theia, and learned how to combat bias in AI algorithms. Let’s take a closer look.
