Just like Kung Fu in the 70's, serverless application development and deployment is hot. But just like Kung Fu, serverless is as much of a mindset as it is a platform. Amazon's Lambdas really kicked off the excitement, but going even further back, the origins of this style of programming can be found in functional principles: those found in Erlang, Haskell, and Scala.
Primarily, the idea of stateless computing and the goal of building discrete application functions drive this new paradigm of serverless. What's new about serverless is the fact that applications are offered up to the cloud to run in some unknown nebula managed by the cloud provider, with scaling needs completely abstracted away from the developer.

big data, cloud, data, iguazio, networking, nuclio, open source, open source software, storage
Yaron Haviv, CTO and co-founder of Iguazio joins TC Currie for this episode of The New Stack Makers. Haviv’s deep technological experience in the fields of big data, cloud, storage and networking led to him leading the team creating Iguazio’s new product nuclio.
This open-source project, launched in December 2017, is an extremely fast serverless platform with a real-time processing engine. Extremely fast meaning 100x faster than AWS Lambda. “Everyone knows that the value of data diminishes over time,” said Haviv, “so that means when the data starts flowing into the system, you need to start aggregating contextualizing and acting on it as it flows.”

The 20th anniversary of OSCON arrives next month on July 16, 2018, and Portland town can't wait for the geeks to come for a visit. This year continues the O'Reilly effort to move from that long-time practice of language-focus to the story of the past four years thinking more how the developer works every day.

Microservices are the talk of the town these days, even if the term and technology has actually been around for a while now. Why is everyone suddenly interested in microservices architecture? What has changed? To understand microservices, we sat down with Patrick Chanezon, chief developer advocate at Docker at the Open Source Leadership Summit Sonoma, California.

compliance, licensing, nexb, open source, open source licenses, open source technology, software development
As the consumption of open source technologies is skyrocketing, one of the biggest yet most underrated challenges are licence companies. Organizations often use a mix of open source technologies that are released under different open source licences. Sometimes these licences are compatible with each other and sometimes not. Additionally, lack of adherence to the licence may lead to legal actions. No one wants to be at the receiving end of the SFC (Software Freedom Conservancy) or the SFLC (Software Freedom Law Center).

Rob Lalonde is vice president and general manager for Navops at the Univa Corporation. Rob and TNS Founder Alex Williams had a conversation at the Open Source Leadership conference in Sonoma, Ca. We talked quite a bit about Project Tortuga, which Susan Hall, writing for The New Stack, explained this way:
It’s a general-purpose cluster- and cloud-management framework with applications including high-performance computing (HPC), Big Data frameworks, Kubernetes and scale-out machine learning/deep learning environments.

Tracing, logging, monitoring are all getting re-invented with the advent of container-native environments, said Evan Powell on this episode of The New Stack Makers. The force of re-invention is also running through the storage and management layers with new thinking about the concept of container storage.

Beyond the hugs, open source contributions have considerable benefit. The return is in how open source contributions are valued. There’s a ratio really that can be used. It derives from the amount of people who find value in the open source project in comparison to the revenues and overall value the open source company receives from community interaction, says Sensu's Matthew Broberg in this episode of The New Stack Makers.
