It's that time of year again! OSCON's back again! If you've ever done anything with open source or you're looking to do something with open source, OSCON is the perfect resource for learning and obtaining all the right resources to reach your goals.
By now, most everyone should be acquainted with the differences between mobile platforms. Likewise, it should be common knowledge that apps specifically designed for one platform are not going to work on another platform and vice versa. So, why not go with a framework that will enable one application to work on multiple platforms? One way to do this is to use Cordova. What makes it so special? Let's take a look.
Computer networking is a valuable tool that has been used time and time again with all kinds of success. In a conventional setup, physical switches and routers are required along with configurations for each one. Such an arrangement can be quite complicated, thus a different approach was formed. Software-Defined Networking (SDN), seeks to simplify the process. What all does it encompass? Let’s pop the hood.
Ever been stuck with software that just isn't cutting it? Mainstream software has been around for a while and many companies have built their businesses off the franchise, but that doesn't necessarily make it the best option for you. This is not to say that there aren't instances when open source software fails as well, but it seems like the problem can be addressed much more easily. So, put that prepackaged software back on the shelf and read on as we explore some of the benefits of open source.
There are all kinds of event-driven programming networks in existence today and each has strengths and weaknesses. With a set of powerful tools to handle Internet protocols, Twisted has emerged as one of the best for networking. Enabling writing, testing and code deployment, Twisted comes with application servers and protocol implementations for almost everything. Moreover, thanks to its foundation in Python, simple programming on a secure framework means quick turnaround on projects. Let's dig a little deeper into Twisted.
