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.

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.
The modern world of software development is characterized by open source. Today, around 80 percent of IT stacks in companies worldwide are composed of open source software (OSS). Jan Wildeboer, EMEA open source evangelist at Red Hat, explains in our interview how this has come to be, and why it would be wise to increase this figure. And not only does he go into the definition of OSS, he also clarifies the differences between free and open source software. Lastly, he introduces the new “Culture-as-a-Service” concept that he is currently developing at Red Hat.
The DevOps tool GitLab offers paid and free versions, and now 18 additional features will be moved to the open source editions Core/Free. The developer community can contribute to the according issues and speed up the process—so now is the time to take a look and see which of the features you find most important.
The Python Software Foundation members have been working on improving the Python Package Index (PyPI). In 2018, they announced that Facebook Research was funding security improvements, so let’s see how far they have come and what future plans they have.
Over the past thirty years, the shift from proprietary, to freemium, to open source software has changed decision-making within companies. Now, the bottom-up decision-making models are commonplace, but often security teams are left on the outside looking in. This article examines four use cases to empower developers with open source secrets management.
It’s that time of the month again, time to browse the GitHub trending page and pick the best, coolest, or most impressive open source projects for the month.
