OSS

As of today, May 16th, our count for the GPL v3 is at 2371 GPL v3 projects. Since our last post, this is 160 new GPL v3 projects, which is the cumulation of over 2 weeks of projects. This matches with our estimate of approximately 50 projects per week. The AGPL v3 is still growing and is at 86 AGPL v3 project, soon to hit 100 projects. And the LGPL v3 count is now at 219 LGPL v3 projects, up 19 projects since our last posting.

This Week:

* New Projects
* This Weeks Story: Storage and Computing "on the cloud"
* See you later! LGPL's "or later" may be right now at discretion of the user.
* User Updates

New project conversions this week include:

* eyeEdu: eyeEdu is a web-based desktop (built from the eyeOS project), redesigned for the use of kids. Many applications are included that combine learning and fun, along with an intuitive kid-friendly interface.
* AsmFile: AsmFile is a small and fast file manager written in assembler. It uses a two pane interface like "mc" and other file managers. AsmFile runs in a console or a terminal window.
*Quakey: Quackey is a somewhat simplified but mostly feature-complete version of the Perquackey anagram word-building game.

  • There and Back Again: The MongoDB Cloud Story
    Before it was a database company, MongoDB was a cloud company. Founded in 2007 and originally known as 10gen, the company originally intended to build a Java cloud platform. After building a database it called MongoDB, the company realized that the infrastructure software it had built to support its product was more popular than the product itself, and the PaaS company pivoted to become a database company – eventually taking the obvious step of renaming itself to reflect its new purpose.

Red Hat Summit

  • Red Hat Summit Advocates the Power of Participation
    Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.
  • How Red Hat is tailoring OpenStack to fit … everyone
    Even though there have been no major changes announced to the OpenStack platform of late, it was still one of the most talked about subjects at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Red Hat plays a significant role in the development of the platform and is very proud of its contribution to the community.
  • New technologies foster an open-source environment
    In 2007, when 3scale, Inc. was founded, some people thought it was crazy to be investing so much time and energy into API. But Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale, Inc., said that even at that time his team knew that the future was API-driven, and they wanted to help that happen.
