Conseptizer 2558

FreshMeat - Thursday 29th of May 2014 09:03:25 PM
Conseptizer is the combination of two ideas: a closure(-mimic) / higher-order programming and dynamic typing library for the C programming language, and a very dynamic programming language that provides expressiveness through simplicity. It offers powerful features that cannot be found in the mainstream today. Each of these two aspects can be useful on their own, but the combination and tight integration in Conseptizer means that if at some point your runtime performance requirements are not fulfilled by the dynamic language, it is very easy to migrate parts of your program code to C.

Release Notes: First public version.

Cloud convenience is killing the open source database

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree. In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
