Open source can be more than just a technology: it can be a hand up. The transparency and the community all come together to create a unique software experience. In this article, Tracy Miranda explains how she got her start in open source and how these skills have proved to be irreplaceable in her career.
What is open source? How does open source benefit users? And how do we support open source initiatives? In this article, Kayla Matthews introduces the basics of open source as well as the importance and value of open source tools.
Open Source security lifecycle: It takes almost 3 years to publicly disclose library vulnerabilities
We’ve already dissected Snyk’s State of Software Security Report and we’ve pointed out that about 75% of application code is made up of open source components. What we still haven’t covered is the lifecycle of an open source security vulnerability and the steps that play an essential role in the overall state of security. Let’s proceed.
It’s time to do your best Indiana Jones impression: brush off the dust and carefully file that long-forgotten artifact away. GitHub now allows users to archive disused repositories to preserve projects that are no longer actively maintained.
Looking to improve your ML skills? Why not take a look at some of the most popular open source machine learning projects on GitHub? We’re taking a closer look at the top five projects to the state of open source machine learning.
How can we share large datasets without getting the lawyers involved? No one wants a nasty intellectual property rights fight on their hands. And so, the Linux Foundation has come up with the Community Data License Agreement, an open source licensing framework for collaborative communities to share “open” data. No lawyer needed.
Open source skills are a boost for career prospects — if you don’t believe it, it’s time to bring out the big guns. We invited the Eclipse Foundation, The Apache Software Foundation, Cloud Foundry, Red Hat, Hyperledger and more to show you why open source is important. Open the magazine and allow their passion to “infect” you.
nuclio, a new open source serverless platform, intends on bringing all the ease and abstraction of a serverless platform without the infrastructure hassle.
Open source is great. But when it can lead to more security vulnerabilities, how much is too much? And can DevOps save us all? We go over the 2017 State of Software Security Report and see how the industry is doing.
There are a lot of Java libraries out there. How can a busy developer separate the wheat from the chaff? In this article, Martin Patsov explains why he loves open source Java libraries and goes over his top 10 list.
It’s an open source world! Java is free (sort of), Java EE has been moved to the Eclipse Foundation, IBM has just open sourced two projects and the list goes on. We talked with, Jorge Ferrer, VP of Engineering at Liferay about the importance of developing software in the open, the advantages of collaborating on open source projects and more.
The React.js licensing drama recently resurfaced when the Apache Foundation recommended against using React.js and other software using the Facebook BSD+patents license and WordPress stopped using Facebook’s React.js library. The tech giant decided to relicense React, Jest, Flow, and Immutable.js under the MIT license.
IBM has just open sourced their own JVM (it’s called Eclipse OpenJ9 now) but that’s already old news. Open Liberty is the latest IBM effort to show their support for Java developers, who now have a full set of open source tools to build, test, run and connect Java apps and services.
Built to reduce the learning curve for developers and DBAs working in next-gen database environments, Toad Edge is a flexible toolset for developing and managing open source databases. We talked to Greg Davoll, Software Product Leader at Quest Software, about the growth of open source technologies and why Toad Edge helps bridge the gap between DevOps and database development.
