    On this day in 1986 newspapers reported that after years of Japanese-American battles in electronics, American tech company IBM became the world’s first computer manufacturer to use a megabit chip– a memory chip capable of storing one million bits of information– in a commercial product. It was a rare moment of glory for American computer makers, who were perceived to have lost the entire memory market to their Japanese competitors.

    Jack D. Kuehler, the senior vice president of IBM at the time proudly pointed out that the megabit chip was not made in a fabrication laboratory in Tokyo, but in IBM’s own semiconductor operations in Essex Junction, Vermont. It was used in IBM’s Model 3090 mainframe computers, also known as the Sierra series.

    ConEmu – Windows console with tabs

    ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console window enhancement (local terminal emulator), which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable tabbed GUI window with various features. Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement. Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools (like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions. Disclaimer. ConEmu is not a shell, so it does not provide “shell features” like tab-completion, command history and others. ConEmu does not provide remote access (SSH/Telnet/…) too. ConEmu is advanced console window (local terminal) where you can run any shell or remote access client of your choice. Also you may try Clink for bash-style completion in cmd.exe and PSReadLine or PowerTab in powershell.exe.

    The post How to Get Open Source Developers to Want to Join Your Team appeared first on SourceForge Community Blog.

    ]]>
    The world is running out of experienced open source software developers– that’s according to a recent Cloud Foundry report, which identified a quarter-million job openings for software developers in the U.S. alone. It’s also predicted the number of unfillable developer jobs to reach a million within the next decade. The 2017 Open Source Jobs Report shows a supporting statistic: 89% of hiring managers surveyed cited difficulty in finding the right open source skills and expertise.

    Such figures and forecast means it will get harder and harder for companies and organizations to get great open source talent into their team, unless they do something about it. The Linux Foundation’s guide to recruiting open source developers reveals that while the competition for open source talent may be getting fierce, there are ways you can get ahead and get great talent to want to join your team.

    What Developers Want

    Of course in order to get open source developers to want to work with you, you will have to know what motivates them. Monetary compensation may seem like the fast and easy answer to this one, but according to The Linux Foundation’s guide developers are really motivated by three things: rewards, respect and purpose. Rewards in the form of their salary, benefits and perks; respect in the form of professional recognition; and purpose, a visible, challenging and measurable goal without which respect cannot exist. When companies pay developers to contribute to open source communities all three of these things are met, while also giving developers the chance to advance their own work and products, and gain respect within the community.

    According to the most recent Open Source Jobs Report, open source developers say that the best thing about their job is the ability to work on interesting projects with cutting-edge technology and collaborating with a global community. It is important then, to allow this openness of being able to contribute to other open source communities if you want to attract open source talent.

    Counterproductive?

    Now some would argue that allowing and even paying developers to work on other open source projects will only lure them to go to other companies and organizations. On the contrary, this openness is what attracts and keeps them working with you. And you want them to continue working with you, as this is also another thing that appeals to open source developers.

    Developers want to work with other developers, particularly those who are more experienced. They also want to work in a place where they can see existing developers thriving and making a difference in the open source community.

    Training

    This is where training also makes a big impact on boosting your organization’s appeal to other open source developers. When you offer opportunities for training, you not only provide venues for developers to improve their skills, you also allow them to work with and learn from more experienced developers through mentorships and apprenticeships. Training is also crucial in grooming candidates for succession should you lose key developers, so it really is a win-win.

    Other Strategies

    Apart from training and fostering a healthy open source ecosystem by allowing developers a portion of time to contribute to other open source projects, The Linux Foundation’s guide to recruiting open source developers also suggests the following:

    • Hire key developers from open source projects important to you. They can attract other developers who would love the chance to work with such experienced colleagues.
    • Participate in open source events and support your developers when they present their work.
    • Set up proper infrastructure that will allow developers to communicate and work with the global open source community.
    • Set up an internal system for tracking contributions and measuring their impact. Recognize and reward meaningful contributions.

    With open source talent steadily increasing in demand, the usual recruitment strategies may no longer be enough. To attract top talent, it’s important to apply the right strategies and in the process, delve deeper into the open source culture.

    On this day in 1936 German civil engineer, inventor and computer pioneer Konrad Zuse filed for a patent for the automatic execution of calculations, a process he invented while working on the Z1, Germany’s first computer. In the patent application Zuse used the term “combination memory” to refer to breaking programs down into bit combinations for storage. This became the first device to calculate in binary with translation to decimal.

    Zuse went on to establish one of the earliest computer businesses in 1941 and produced the Z3, the world’s first programmable computer and the Z4, the world’s first commercial computer. Because of his achievements he is often referred to as the inventor of the modern computer.

AutoClicker Professional is a clean test-driven, code-reviewed, rapidly-developing fork of the famous in the past but currently abandoned project AutoClicker by mousetool. Thus, many bugs have been fixed, and the user functionality and the clicking speed have been improved dramatically. Usage: just click on the AutoClicker Professional item from the standard Windows programs menu or click on the icon at your Windows desktop. The program starts and it is immediately ready for clicking. Just press the trigger key defaults to F1. For the brand new clicking sequence feature see screenshots for help.

    For our April “Staff Pick” Project of the Month, we selected Eclipse Tomcat Plugin, a plugin that provides simple handling of a tomcat server in Eclipse IDE.

    Eclipse Tomcat Plugin provides simple integration of a tomcat servlet container for easy development and debugging of Java web applications. It’s the successor of the original Sysdeo Tomcat Plugin and features simple configuration and support for multiple versions of Tomcat.

    Eclipse Tomcat Plugin was previously elected “Community Choice” Project of the Month in August of 2016 where developer Markus Keunecke spoke about the project’s developments and direction. When asked about the project’s current status, this is what Keunecke had to say: “We mainly focus on keeping the Tomcat Plugin compatible with current Java versions and Tomcat versions at the moment. Patches are very welcome.”

It was the first company to attempt to capitalize on the nascent World Wide Web. Their first product, the web browser Mosaic Netscape 0.9 quickly became the leading browser of its time, taking three-quarters of the browser market just four months after its first release. Andreessen developed the web browsing software while working at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois. Shortly after its release it was renamed Netscape Navigator.

    For our April 2018 “Community Choice” Project of the Month, the community elected GnuCash, a personal and small-business finance manager.

    GnuCash has a check-book like register GUI to enter and track bank accounts, stocks, income and expenses. It is designed to be simple and easy to use but still based on formal accounting principles. Its features include Double-Entry Accounting, Stock/Bond/Mutual Fund Accounts, Reports and Graphs, QIF/OFX/HBCI Import, Transaction Matching and much more.

    GnuCash was previously elected “Community Choice” Project of the Month in March of 2015 and again in September 2016, where developer John Ralls spoke about the project’s developments and direction. Recently we caught up with John to find out how the project has been doing since then.

    SourceForge (SF): Congratulations on becoming “Community Choice” Project of the Month for a third time!
    John Ralls (JR): Thanks for the opportunity. We’re a couple of weeks away from releasing GnuCash 3.0, our next major version.

    SF: What significant changes have occurred with your project since you were chosen Project of the Month in September 2016?
    JR: The headline change is that we’ve upgraded the toolkit to Gtk+-3. This is well ahead of plan but was pushed on us by Linux distros dropping support for WebKit1; WebKit2 works only with Gtk+-3 so we had to upgrade or be dropped from the distributions.

    SF: Have any of your project goals changed since then?
    JR: Not really, but I’d like to express the goals a little more broadly: We want to transform GnuCash into a transactional database application that can run on any platform, not just the desktop platforms supported by Gnome. To get there we need to create a core platform that can work with any GUI at one end and any transactional database at the other. Traditional desktop users will see multiple user access as the primary benefit of that transition, but it will also make GnuCash accessible to users of other platforms like tablets and Chromebooks. We also want to separate that core platform from the program to make it easier for other projects to be able to directly and safely access a GnuCash database for use cases outside of GnuCash’s mission.

    SF: What project goals have you achieved so far?
    JR: GnuCash 3.0 includes a rewritten SQL backend that we think is worthy of production use–in the past we’ve told users that it’s experimental. The next step is to shift the older XML backend to create an in-memory SQL database and to convert the query mechanism on which the report system is based to query that database instead of hash tables.

    SF: What can we look forward to with GnuCash?
    JR: GnuCash 3.0 has several enhancements beyond the Gtk+-3 upgrade and new SQL backend. The numeric system has been rewritten for more precision and the hard-coded 6-digit rounding removed allowing accounting in commodities like Bitcoin which use 9-digit fractional parts. There’s a new CSV file importer that’s a lot more flexible, including handling multiple-split transactions; there’s also a new importer for historical security prices. The Transaction Report is hugely expanded thanks to a new contributor, Chris Lam.

    We’re planning to shorten the development cycle by a year, so expect GnuCash 4.0 around the end of 2020. We also plan to be more flexible about introducing features into the 3.x series than we have been in the past as long as the features don’t impact storage database compatibility.

    SF: Is there anything else we should know?
    JR: There’s a lot of work still to do and we welcome developers with experience in C++ and Scheme to join us.

It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks. It also solves many vulnerabilities and security issues found in TrueCrypt. This enhanced security adds some delay ONLY to the opening of encrypted partitions without any performance impact to the application use phase. This is acceptable to the legitimate owner but it makes it much harder for an attacker to gain access to the encrypted data. All released files are PGP signed with key ID=0x54DDD393, available on key servers and downloadable at https://www.idrix.fr/VeraCrypt/VeraCrypt_PGP_public_key.asc VeraCrypt can mount TrueCrypt volumes.

    Manjaro is a user-friendly Linux distribution based on the independently developed Arch operating system. Within the Linux community, Arch itself is renowned for being an exceptionally fast, powerful, and lightweight distribution that provides access to the very latest cutting edge – and bleeding edge – software. However, Arch is also aimed at more experienced or technically-minded users. As such, it is generally considered to be beyond the reach of those who lack the technical expertise (or persistence) required to use it. Developed in Austria, France, and Germany, Manjaro provides all the benefits of the Arch operating system combined with a focus on user-friendliness and accessibility. Available in 64 bit versions, Manjaro is suitable for newcomers as well as experienced Linux users. For newcomers, a user-friendly installer is provided, and the system itself is designed to work fully ‘straight out of the box’.

    ]]>
    In our previous post, we emphasized the importance of having more than just programming skills to snag the open source job you want. Of course you still have to have the skills required for the job, but exactly which skills would these be?

    The answer to this question is revealed in a survey done by The Linux Foundation and online job board Dice last year. The survey, which gathered responses from open source managers and professionals, focused on open source hiring– particularly, the skills that employers are looking for in potential workers.

    According to the survey, 67 percent of managers expect the hiring of open source professionals to increase more than that of other IT workers, and 42 percent agreed that they need to hire more open source talent due to the increasing use of open source technologies. However, a whopping 89 percent said that they found it difficult to find the open source talent they needed to fill positions.

    So exactly what types of talent are they looking for?

    Cloud Computing

    This is according to 70 percent of hiring managers surveyed, and it’s an increase from the 66 percent who said the exact same thing in 2016. And 69 percent of professionals expect cloud technologies to become even more important this year.

    Application Development

    Application development has been all the rage for quite some time now, and it’s showing no signs of stopping. The results of the survey further prove this, showing 59 percent of managers stating it as one of their most sought-after open source skills. 77 percent of IT professionals also agreed that the ability to architect solutions based on open source was one of their most valuable skills on the job.

    Open Source Dev Tools

    Knowing how to incorporate open source code into applications is vital for developers, but understanding open source development tools takes that skill up a notch. According to 66 percent of IT professionals surveyed, experience with open source development tools is one of the most valuable skills in their jobs.

    DevOps

    In the survey DevOps skills ranked as the third most sought-after skill, garnering 57 percent. 60 percent also said that they needed DevOps Engineers the most in their organizations. This is supported by the Robert Half Report, which puts DevOps Engineers as one of the most in-demand technology roles of 2018.

    Big Data

    Big data continues to be a big deal, with 57 percent of open source professionals stating that big data and analytics skills will continue to gain more importance this year. 57 percent of hiring managers surveyed agree, and pinpoint big data as one of the areas of expertise most affecting hiring decisions.

    There are several other areas of expertise that the Linux Foundation report specifies as important and in-demand, including open source security, web technologies, and containers.

    What other open source skills have you found most useful and valuable in your work? Let us know in the comments section below.

    On this day in 1986 a team from Roche Laboratories in New Jersey published an article in Science magazine discussing the theoretical basis for the HIV protease molecule, an essential component to the life-cycle of HIV. Without it, HIV virions would remain uninfectious. It was one of the earliest developments in treating the AIDS epidemic, and ushered in the use of computers in AIDS research. Today, computers are used in a myriad of ways by pharmaceutical researchers, including in designing molecules with which to target viruses such as HIV.

    On this day in 2006 the very first tweet was sent out by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey. Dorsey was the primary designer of what was then codenamed “twttr”. He had approached then podcast publishing site Odeo with the idea of status messages shared among friends, and the idea quickly gained interest and traction. He alongside Twitter co-founder Biz Stone built a prototype of Twitter in just two weeks, and by March 21, 2006 at exactly 9:50 AM Dorsey sent out the first tweet: “just setting up my twttr.” Not long after Twitter was released to the public and established its own company, Twitter, Inc.

    The first chap I meet in the Summerset Isles is an elf with a Sean Penn face who gripes about how he’s missing out on a wine tasting because some local Wood Elves “offed” the vintner, because of course. This, after all, is the closed beta for The Elder Scrolls Online’s Summerset expansion ($40 on Amazon), which whisks us off to the ancestral homes of the High Elves, a magical land crammed with haughty wizards, Neuschwanstein-like villas, and flora that likely would have been at home in Eden. Whatever. This dude just wants his wine, and I can appreciate that.

    SE-ing the forest: Apple’s cheap phone strategy Sat, 21 Apr 2018 04:00:00 -0700 The Macalope The Macalope

    Apple just took 86 percent of profit in the smartphone industry so that means it’s time to talk about units instead.

    Writing for ZDNet, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes is not impressed with Apple’s current low-priced phone.

    “This is why Apple needs a cheaper iPhone.” (Tip o’ the antlers to @JonyIveParody.)

    $349 isn’t cheap?

    Buy a highly-rated portable Bluetooth speaker on Amazon for $27.09 Fri, 20 Apr 2018 13:23:00 -0700 Leif Johnson Leif Johnson

    At this point I think it’s safe to say the HomePod isn’t a massive hit, and the $349 price tag likely has a lot to do with that—to say nothing of the way it basically locks you into Apple Music. Still, Bluetooth speakers are fun, especially when they’re portable. If you’d like to get your hands on a highly rated one for far less cash, Tronsmart is selling its portable T6 25-watt dual-driver speaker on Amazon for just $27.09, down from the usual price of $41.99.

It’s full-disk encryption (FDE), meaning that your entire startup volume is locked away when macOS is shut down (not just sleeping) using strong encryption. Without the password that unlocks an account on your Mac that’s authorized to log in with FileVault, there’s no effective way to bring that computer to life.

    That’s a problem, however, if you forget the password to all the authorized account or, in some cases I’ve received a few emails about, something goes wrong and the Recovery Disk—used both for “cold start” logins to macOS and to diagnose problems on your startup volume—demands a login that doesn’t work.

    SkylinkNet Alarm System Starter Kit Plus review: Built by techies, for techies Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 -0700 Christopher Null Christopher Null It’s short on handholding, but SkylinkNet’s SK-250 kit is a good-enough security offering (though not recommended for beginners). https://www.techhive.com/article/3269104/hubs-controllers/skylinknet-alarm-system-starter-kit-plus-review-built-by-techies-for-techies.html#tk.rss_all Connected Home Home Tech Yes, eGPUs boost Mac game performance, but limitations abound Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 -0700 Leif Johnson Leif Johnson

    Folks with more coding knowledge than I have (and a greater willingness to potentially brick a $2,400 machine) have been hooking up external graphics cards to Macs for years, but the support now come bundled into macOS 10.13.4 High Sierra. In layman’s terms, Apple officially supports some graphics cards that you’d normally only find in a bulky PC tower—so long as you have a separate external chassis to stick them in and a Mac with Thunderbolt 3.

    I hoped eGPU support would be revolutionary. Beyond that, I hoped it’d allow me to break with PCs entirely, as I really only use them for gaming these days. Anyone who watches Apple Arcade knows I’ve been a little frustrated with the current state of Mac gaming, and an external graphics card struck me as an easy way to circumvent the limitations of Apple’s built-in processors.

    Astell&Kern Kann review: This high-resolution digital audio player delivers sweet sound, but with a steep price tag Fri, 20 Apr 2018 03:00:00 -0700 Theo Nicolakis Theo Nicolakis An intoxicating sonic experience from a hi-res audio player that's as heavy as it is expensive. https://www.techhive.com/article/3268020/consumer-electronics/astellkern-kann-review.html#tk.rss_all Consumer Electronics Audio iPods Apple’s new model: Please subscribe Fri, 20 Apr 2018 03:00:00 -0700 Dan Moren Dan Moren

    Over the past year or so, Apple’s spent a lot of time talking up its Services division—which includes not only Apple Music, but also the likes of iCloud, the iTunes Store, and Apple Pay—and for good reason. Analysts have been paying a lot of attention to Apple’s Services, not least of all because it’s shown solid growth, even at times when other segments of Apple’s financial results have been more lackluster.

    So you can bet that Apple’s not about to walk away from the services business anytime soon. In fact, if recent reports are any indication, the company is devoting even more effort to the segment, with at least two brand new services in development and the shifting of two of its biggest storefronts to a more subscription-focused angle.

    Updated 04/19/18: Apple has announced the Earth Day badge for 2018.

    Achievement badges are a funny thing. You know they’re just a simple little bit of visual flair, they don’t even do anything, and yet for some reason you just have to collect them. Achievements are great motivators, and the achievement badges for the activity tracking on the Apple Watch have inspired many users to get more exercise.

    If you want to maximize your badge count, you’re going to watch to chase down as many activity achievements as you can. Most are available year-round, but there are also some time-limited special events to grab, too. Here’s a list of all the activity achievements for the Apple Watch and how to unlock them.

    The gold early-2015 12-inch MacBook is the star of today’s Amazon’s Deal of the Day, and fortunately it’s not priced like a chunk of gold. In fact, Amazon vendor Woot is selling a certified refurbished version of the notebook for a whopping $420 off, which brings the price down from $1,200 to just $800.

    How to recover an iCloud account when a factor for two-factor authentication goes missing Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:00:00 -0700 Glenn Fleishman Glenn Fleishman

    Two-factor authentication (2FA) is highly recommend with your Apple ID, especially for iCloud or iTunes and App Store purchases, there’s one drawback: you need access to a second factor, or you might wind up losing everything associated with your account.

    Normally, this shouldn’t be a problem. The second factor for Apple’s system is always at least one Mac or one iOS device plus a phone number (one that receives either text messages or voice calls, so a landline is an option). It would seem an unlikely scenario in which you lost all of that at once.

    You can also add other phone numbers as backups, which is what my wife and I have done with each other’s cell numbers. Even if we lost access to our devices and our own numbers, we could still log in. (Telephone numbers can be reassigned, and hackers sometimes socially engineer or otherwise shift them for identity theft or worse purposes.)

    Turn a single USB-C port into three USB ports and Ethernet with this $20 adapter Thu, 19 Apr 2018 07:38:00 -0700 Alexandria Haslam Alexandria Haslam

    Modern laptops never seem to have quite enough USB ports for all your plug-ins. Hook up a mouse, plug in a flash drive, and suddenly you’ve got no room for anything else. And as more laptops adopt USB-C ports, some items won’t plug in at all. A port hub can fix both problems, and right now you can get an AmazonBasics USB-C to three-port USB hub for $20, the lowest we’ve seen it and nearly 20 percent off its average price.

    More bad news for Apple as Counterpoint research has released its estimates of quarterly smartphone market profit share numbers. Turns out Apple took only… let’s see…

    [squints at report]

    …86 percent of the profit in the smartphone market.

    Huh. Well, the horny one isn’t sure how this is bad news for Apple but just give pundits a few hours and they’ll think of something. Probably having to do with how there’s only 14 percent more profit share to take and then what will Apple do?!

    It’s worth taking a closer look at this report because it’s an intriguing look into “How are pundits not tired of being wrong all the time?”

    Macs may be a far less tempting target for malware and viruses, but they’re not immune from attack. Even if you don’t care about adware or being used as a means to infect users on other platforms, it’s still possible to fall victim to ransomware, password theft, or stolen iPhone backups.

    Sophos Home Premium for Mac review: Up-to-date features at an unbeatable price Thu, 19 Apr 2018 04:00:00 -0700 Glenn Fleishman Glenn Fleishman

    Sophos released its latest version of what it simply calls Sophos Home (free) and Sophos Home Premium (paid) just before we began testing, and as such it may have a leg up on competitors that have revisions in progress. As it stands, the set of features, cloud-based configuration, and price make it the outstanding entrant in the field.

    On its anti-virus performance, it’s not perfect, but it’s close. AV-TEST found it detected 98.4 percent of macOS malware, over 95 percent of macOS PUA, and over 99 percent of Windows malware. Those scores could be marginally better, but these databases are constantly being updated. During our real-world tests, it knocked out macOS malware as soon as it was unzipped from an encrypted archive. It also prevented us from loading web pages with malicious software via the WICAR test site.

    Norton Security Deluxe offers malware protection and a lot more. While it’s not our top pick for fighting malware, this Deluxe edition is a good bargain for comprehensive antivirus and networking security. Beyond antivirus protection, it includes a highly configurable inbound and outbound network firewall, native browser plug-ins for Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, and a disk “cleaner” tool that removes duplicate and unneeded files. It also has a straightforward interface, making it easy to invoke actions, change the configuration, and see what’s happening at a glance.

    Sold as a bundle with network-defense tool NetBarrier X9, Intego VirusBarrier X9 really does one thing: Scan your drives continuously as new files are added, unless you’ve set it to perform scans only on a schedule or when you trigger them manually.

    Intego made the choice that Internet Security X9 doesn’t delete malware by default. Nor can you set the program to automatically do so. Instead, malware is quarantined, with the option to attempt repairing files that contain data you still need.
