Interview with Chris Eng

“Proactive security scanning of code is a must”

We spoke to Chris Eng from Veracode about the UA-Parser-JS NPM Open Source library hack. What happened, what was the outcome, and what are unique open source security concerns? Chris Eng gives advice on how we can boost our open source security practices and avoid malicious code.

Automate repairs and apply best practices

Reaper: Anti-entropy repair made easy

Reaper is an open source tool written in Java and built with Dropwizard to schedule and orchestrate repairs of Apache Cassandra clusters. It was built to address those issues and make repairs as safe and reliable as possible. Get started, install Reaper and stop worrying about repairs!

Are you up to the challenge?

Call for Code – a hackathon unlike any other

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.

How open source software, shared purpose and cross sector collaboration are creating a new template for CSR in the form of social innovation

Technology as a Source for Good

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.
