TuxMachines: Why We Embraced Open Source For Our Database Needs After A Decade Working With Proprietary Solutions

Monday 14th of November 2016 11:51:51 AM

After investigating our open source options and due diligence, we picked MariaDB as Teleplan’s new replacement e-TRAC database partner. With MariaDB, we realized significant performance improvements.

For example, whereas running one particular daily report would take up to 15 seconds to run on Oracle Enterprise, with MariaDB it was running in under a second. We did not have the in-house expertise to work on improving the Oracle performance and found this aspect much easier with MariaDB. We also received excellent support both in terms of value and responsiveness and that, coupled with a highly competitive cost, makes MariaDB a great overall package for our e-TRAC needs.

TuxMachines: How Capital One is embracing open source

Monday 14th of November 2016 11:23:06 AM

I eventually found out that my friends was fed up, the company wouldn't allow him to contribute to open source. Wow. Even in Silicon Valley.

It made me think about how lucky we are at Capital One when it comes to open source. When you think of a financial institution or a bank, transparency and open source software might not be the first thing that you think of, especially with recent scandals. And for many years, the financial sector has used mostly closed source, proprietary software. This was the case for a variety of reasons, including lack of trust in open source software, the need for SLA support, regulations, and to protect intellectual property.

TuxMachines: A Portable, Accurate, Low-Cost, Open Source Air Particle Counter

Monday 14th of November 2016 11:19:04 AM

If you live in a city with poor air quality you may be aware that particulates are one of the chief contributors to the problem. Tiny particles of soot from combustion, less than 10μm across, hence commonly referred to as PM10. These are hazardous because they can accumulate deep in the lungs, wherein all kinds of nasties can be caused.

There are commercial sensors available to detect and quantify these particles, but they are neither inexpensive nor open source. [Rundong] tells us about a project that aims to change that situation, the MyPart, which is described as a portable, accurate, low-cost, open source air particle counter. There is a GitHub repository for the project as well as a series of Instructables covering the build in detail. It comes from a team of members of the Hybrid Ecologies Lab at UC Berkeley, USA.

Reddit: Why hasn't Linux taken over the world yet?

Monday 14th of November 2016 09:24:56 AM

I've been surfing r/unixporn lately and realized how beautiful a Linux desktop can be - so I have to ask - what gives?

Why is the majority of Linux experiences, starting from the way our desktops look and function by default all the way to the apps we use everyday so agonizingly bad? Why do we have n-plus solutions to a single problem, such as desktop managers (of which none are nearly as good as say, Mac OS), while a bunch of other problems are left completely unresolved (for example - poor Bluetooth support)?

The way I see it, Linux should have taken over the world by now. We should have the best desktop experience and the best applications available. Why? Because we're building it for ourselves. We're our own customers. I scratch my own itch and share the code. Compound that by the number of people using the software and you've got a lot of momentum.

So why are things the way they are? Is it because of a lack of cooperation? Is it because of ego?

TuxMachines: Development News

  • Introduction to Eclipse Che, a next-generation, web-based IDE

    Correctly installing and configuring an integrated development environment, workspace, and build tools in order to contribute to a project can be a daunting or time consuming task, even for experienced developers. Tyler Jewell, CEO of Codenvy, faced this problem when he was attempting to set up a simple Java project when he was working on getting his coding skills back after dealing with some health issues and having spent time in managerial positions. After multiple days of struggling, Jewell could not get the project to work, but inspiration struck him.

  • production ready

    A few thoughts on what it means for software to be production ready. Or rather, what if any information is conveyed to me when I’m told that something is used in production. Millions of users can’t be wrong!

    Some time ago, I worked with a framework. It doesn’t matter which, the bugs have all been fixed, and I don’t think it was remarkable. But our team picked it because it was production ready, and then I discovered it wasn’t quite so ready.

  • It's Been Five Years Since The Open64 5.0 Compiler Release

    This week marked five years since the release of the Open64 5.0 compiler in what is the latest and likely last-ever release of this once-promising code compiler.

    Open64 5.0 was released back in 2011 and unfortunately there hasn't been a release since. Last year we wrote how the Open64 project vanished. A few days after that article, it was said back on 27 March 2015, "The websites and SVN servers are down for maintenance and will be back soon."

Open Source Software A Core Competency For Effective Tech M&A

Imagine your company just acquired its competitor for $100 million. Now imagine the company’s most important asset – its proprietary software – is subject to third-party license conditions that require the proprietary software to be distributed free of charge or in source code form. Or, imagine these license conditions are discovered late in the diligence process, and the cost to replace the offending third-party software will costs tens of thousands of dollars and take months to remediate. Both scenarios exemplify the acute, distinct and often overlooked risks inherent to the commercial use of open source software. An effective tech M&A attorney must appreciate these risks and be prepared to take the steps necessary to mitigate or eliminate them. Over the past decade, open source software has become a mainstay in the technology community. Since its beginnings, open source software has always been viewed as a way to save money and jumpstart development projects, but it is increasingly being looked to for its quality solutions and operational advantages. Today, only a fraction of technology companies do not use open source software in any way. For most of the rest, it is mission critical. Read more
