A lot of the open source projects I really dig are things like Syllable OS, a non-Linux-based attempt to create a 'best practices' open source desktop operating system, and Uzebox, a really cool 'retro-minimalist' games console based on open source hardware.
On 5 November I joined a large crowd of other Sydneysiders at the Occupy Sydney protest. As at many other protests over the last half decade, the crowd was full of people either documenting the protest by filming and taking photographs or tweeting.
Last time I took a brief holiday I came back to work to find that HP had killed webOS (and there was a lightsaber on my desk).
I recently had the chance to spend some quality time with the Nokia N9: The glittering debut and sad curtain close for the Finnish phone company's MeeGo efforts.
So what is Amazon up to now?
It's the resignation that has sent shockwaves through geekdom. A tragic loss of someone who was a real pioneer in his field -- I mean sure, he's still kicking but he's stepped down from the role that's made him famous.
You know how it goes. You're out of the office for a few days and come back to find HP has acknowledged its grand hopes for webOS have come to naught and there's a lightsaber on your desk.
There are people who think software development is devoid of creativity. Of course, anyone who has even a passing interest in development, or, say has ever found him- or herself having a late night chat in a disreputable Sydney pub with a Drupal/Node.js developer, knows that this is untrue.
It's a sad ending and a new beginning for Techworld Australia. Last week we bade farewell to the site's founding editor: Rodney Gedda.
Probably the most interesting thing to come out of Malcolm Turnbull’s speech at the National Press Club yesterday was the idea that the coalition, given the opportunity, would separate Telstra and transfer the wholesale assets to a new “Network Co”. At TechWorld we posed a similar idea, but we can’t help but ask, is it workable?
UXC Connect’s Jesmond Psaila says that DevOps can do for IT operations what Agile did for software development. This paper demonstrates how, by combining both approaches, you can significantly improve operational efficiency and time-to-market. • Marketing and development teams want to constantly change or increase functionality, while IT operations teams want to keep the environment as stable as possible • Agile software development and virtualisation have not solved the time-to-value problem faced by marketing and IT operations teams • Recent movements in DevOps aim to address and redefine a more agile service management platform, while new tools have vastly improved functionality to configure and automate common processes
