Today in Tech – 1967

Mié, 08/01/2018 - 06:24

On this day in 1967 computer scientist and retired Navy Reservist Grace Murray Hopper was recalled to active duty by the US Navy. Hopper had been in the Naval Reserve and contributed to many technological developments, including the UNIVAC I computer, the A-0 compiler and the FLOW-MATIC data processing language before retiring in 1966. The following year however, the US Navy recalled her to active duty to help develop the programming language COBOL, which extended Hopper’s FLOW-MATIC language. COBOL went on to become the most ubiquitous computer programming language used in business.

In the years that followed her return to active duty Hopper served as the director of the Navy Programming Languages Group in the Navy’s Office of Information Systems Planning, and by 1973 she was promoted to the rank of captain.

Marketing Open Source Projects

Vie, 07/27/2018 - 06:13

Do open source software need marketing? It’s easy to think they don’t since they’re already free and marketing is only about selling something.

But in a talk at the Open Source Summit NA, Deirdré Straughan of Amazon Web Services states that actually, you are selling something with open source projects. You are selling ideas, and in exchange you’re asking for something extremely valuable: people’s time and attention.

What Marketing Is for Open Source Projects

Another reason why marketing is so crucial for open source projects is competition. There are millions of open source projects available nowadays, with more cropping up every day. In order to get noticed in this sea of projects and get the support you need, you need to stand out. Marketing is one of the most effective ways to do that.

But if you’ve managed an open source project for some time now chances are you’ve already done at least some marketing for it, even if you didn’t necessarily call it “marketing”.

So what is marketing when it comes to open source projects?

According to Straughan, marketing open source projects is basically helping people understand what the software is about, and how they can use and benefit from it. With this definition in mind, there are actually a number of ways you can market an open source project and probably already have.

Marketing Tools

The first and most important of these marketing tools Straughan states, is your code. It’s the foundation, the main reason for bringing people in. It should be architectured in a way that people can easily use and contribute to your project.

The second tool is content. This comes in different forms, but the most crucial has to be the documentation. Documentation contains all the information you need to know about the software, and is one of the key elements that attract people to a project. There are several ways that documentation can be presented, including on blogs, videos, podcasts, and white papers. It’s important to diversify the way you present documentation so as to reach more people.

The third tool is your website and/or wiki. Once you’ve got the code and the content, you’ll need a place where people can find it apart from repositories, and this is what your website/wiki is for. But you also have to make sure that they are easy to find, and for this Straughan notes, you need to make sure your project name is unique. If your project name is a common word, it will be difficult to find. You may also have to practice some SEO in order to improve your rankings in search pages.

Customer Experience

In addition to these tools Straughan points out that basically everything that touches the customer is marketing. Everything that a customer experiences with your project shapes his or her perception of your brand. This is why the community is so crucial to open source projects. Community culture helps define a customer’s experience, which affects their perception and determines whether or not they want to participate in the project. Community culture therefore, must uphold certain standards and values such as diversity, kindness and openness.

Marketing may not be your strong suite, but it is part and parcel of building a successful open source project. With the right tools and a well-nurtured community, marketing will come almost naturally and even if it doesn’t, there are always people and resources you can turn to for help.

Project Web Upgrade Notice

Vie, 07/20/2018 - 00:12

A notice for our project admins: our project web service is scheduled to be updated to use Apache 2.4 on Monday, July 23, at 17:00 GMT. This upgrade will allow us to take advantage of all the latest Apache features and to offer some other improvements, such as supporting multiple PHP versions, including PHP 7.x.

The upgrade should be mostly transparent to our hosted projects, but in a few cases there will be tweaks needed in some .htaccess files due to the changes in the config directives. We are avoiding most of the issues by using the mod_access_compat module to continue to support Apache 2.2 allow/deny directives, and we also have SSILegacyExprParser enabled to continue to allow older shtml variable expansions.  Some of the configuration-change issues that remain include:

  • DefaultType is no longer supported, so it is ignored with a warning. The latest standard is to not provide a type on unknown files and let the browser determine the mime type.
  • MaxRedirects has been removed in favor of LimitInternalRecursion.
  • Apache ignores a 401 ErrorDocument that has a full URL specified (it must be a relative path on the local server).
  • For more details, there is the official upgrade document, but projects aren’t affected by most of the changes highlighted there.

* If you use MultiViews in your .htaccess file, make sure that you define any language suffixes you need, such as “AddLanguage en .en”

We will be monitoring the error-log files to look for issues and may fix some of the more verbose offenders that we see. We suggest that project admins verify that their pages are working OK sometime after the upgrade time on Monday. You can download a copy of the error logs to check for any warnings that happened during your testing. If you see any issues that you are not able to fix, please let us know.

Today in Tech – 1968

Mié, 07/18/2018 - 06:12

On this day in 1968 American multinational corporation and technology company Intel was founded. Intel was formed by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove. Its name is a combination of the words integrated and electronics, a fitting name considering the company’s vast electronic product line.

Intel came up with the x86 series of microprocessors, which are found in most PCs today. It was the world’s largest producer of semiconductor chips based on sales until they were overtaken by Samsung in 2017.
