An Open Door to Open Source: Relive our OSS Conference

Posted on

A quick recap At the end of last year, to celebrate our continued sponsorship of the Open Source community, we hosted a small conference with special guests at our Düsseldorf campus. We initially hoped to welcome Tobias Koppers and Sean Larkin from Webpack, plus some internal speakers. What we didn’t expect was the huge amount of fantastic speakers who wanted to present their projects to the community. In the end, Sean unfortunately couldn’t make it but we did have a chance to welcome Marvin Hagemeister, Juan Picado, Norbert de Langen and Pia Mancini as speakers, plus our own amazing talents.

FOSDEM in Brussels is one of our favorite conferences each year as it fully reflects our love for Free and Open Source software. We strongly believe in sharing knowledge not only internally, but also with the tech community around the world. This is one of the reasons why we support Open Source software through development and sponsorship. For example, we are the second biggest supporter on Open Collective and we have a ton of our own Open Source projects too.

Open Source? trivago. When we announced our renewal of our investment in Webpack and Babel last year, I found a tweet from Guillermo Rauch, CEO of zeit.co, one of the most interesting serverless computing companies at the moment. We’ve spoken before about how Open Source allows everyone to win and we’ve explained how Webpack and Babel are vital infrastructure projects that are essential to modern web development. All of that is still true and that is why we are continuing our investment in Babel and Webpack for another year.

Adopting an automation-first mindset is the first step to reduce manual and repetitive work. Thinking this way enables us to move faster, and more efficiently. It unburdens us from mundane, repetitive work, allowing us to focus on solving problems and creating value in the Software Development Life Cycle. So the first thing is to look for a tool that helps us write automated tests faster and is easy to maintain.

A New Functional Approach to Complex Types in Apache Hive

When faced with the challenge to store, retrieve and process small or large amounts of data, structured query languages are typically not far away. These languages serve as a nice abstraction between the goal that is to be achieved and how it is actually done. The list of successful applications of this extra layer is long. MySQL users could switch from MyISAM to InnoDB or use new algorithms like Multi-Range-Read without a change to their application.
