#OpenSource
1) Open source started on the fringes. Just how fringe? The command [~}$ BIFF was named after a developer’s dog in Berkeley. Now open source is the epicenter of software and innovation. How’d it get there?
2) For years, open source valuations paled in comparison to proprietary companies. But in the last 10 years, there’s been a renaissance. Since 1991, open source businesses have raised $10B in capital. 80% of that was raised after 2005.

Been thinking about @mit @MIT_CSAIL #Stallman

I started at MIT in 1991 as a 18yo girl who'd coded in LISP for 4 years, gobbled up Society of Mind, competed in high school national science fairs with a neural net I'd trained to recognize emotions in music (kinda ;) ).

1/n
Needless to say, studying AI at MIT was a dream come true.

Then I dropped out of AI and CS by the end of my freshman year.

2/n
I've never been able to pinpoint why.

At the time I said it was because I found AI at school really boring -- I'd read the AI book already and the lecturer (Winston) just lectured to the book. Sure. But really???

keep hearing about how bad 'big tech' is, but wonder why we ended up in this position and what, if anything, might change? and if #bitcoin has anything to do with it?

me too! so I wrote this 😊

“Many seem to believe that Facebook, Google and others succumb to temptation to inflict such harm solely because they are big. Hence, make them smaller! Break them up! It doesn’t appear to have seriously occurred to these people that they are big BECAUSE they inflict such harm.”
“Those who generate the data are happy to do so for free, for it is of no monetary value to them, and is why those who will derive any productive value from it will only be the already very well capitalised.”

1. First release of {#idmodelr} is now on CRAN. {idmodelr} is a library of #infectiousdisease models and utilities for using them. Use case is exploration/education/research + signposting.

bit.ly/idmodelr

#rstats #epitwitter #dynamics #opensource #openscience
2. Current status is WIP with more features - and additional models - planned. Contributions much appreciated!

Planned features: github.com/seabbs/idmodel…
3. {#idmodelr} has an accompanying #shiny app that demos some of the functionality and can be used as a standalone tool for exploring infectious disease models.

See here: github.com/seabbs/explore…

Hi #development Twitter & #GCDigital. I'm thinking of creating a gentle #Python-based learning session on how applications work for senior executives. I need your help. Yellow sign -
My hypothesis == w/ hands-on practice of some simple programming fundamentals, senior folks can better understand modern applications, how they are developed & work + the value of #opensource. Maybe some agile.
This, in turn, leads to understanding the art of the possible, better questions on work being done, potentially practical support for building broader #programming & #DataScience capacity in their organizations & more open access to #opensource tools.

👋Hi! @aaronsnow and @sboots here! We'll be taking over the CDS twitter account for the next 90 mins to answer your questions about #Roadmap2025.
ICYMI, you can read about it on our blog: bit.ly/2JsrNYX

So…#AMA here!

#GCDigital 4 CDS staff in person, and two online, with a sign that says
@aaronsnow @sboots Definitely agree. New Zealand has done some really impressive work on this (bundling together life events like a newborn child). apolitical.co/solution_artic…

Here's their online service, SmartStart! smartstart.services.govt.nz Definitely a great source of inspiration.

1/ The future of #OpenSource is in the cloud, and the future of cloud is heavily influenced by open source.
2/ Going forward, I believe the diamond standard in infrastructure software will be building a legendary open-source brand that is adopted by thousands of users, and then delivering a cloud-native, full-service experience to commercialize it.
3/ Along the way, non open source companies that use cloud “time-to-value” effectively, as well as hybrid open source solutions delivered on multi-cloud and on-premise systems, will continue to thrive.

Follow me on a little recap of my time at @nycplanning over the last 3 years. I was recruited after @arielmai introduced me to @fuchsnyc . He was building a progressive, data-savvy team focused on analyzing and influencing NYC’s Capital Budget. 1/
@NYCPlanning @arielmai @fuchsnyc The team had been assembling new data products and cleaning up old ones, and the missing piece of the puzzle was a digital platform to make the data more accessible. The simplified dream: see all of NYC’s capital projects on a map instead of parsing through 4000 pages of PDFs. 2/
@NYCPlanning @arielmai @fuchsnyc I like to describe @fuchsnyc as having a clear-as-day vision in his head for what this product could do, but didn’t like his options. (1. Figure out how to get it built in-house in the agency’s IT team. 2. Find money and hire a vendor to build it) /3

So the world's biggest developer survey is in and we're excited to see what it says about the #Erlang and #Elixirlang community! What's your favourite bit of insight from the results?

#myelixirstatus #ElixirConfEU #CodeBEAMSTO
Elixir is towards the top of the most love #programminglanguages! Taking eighth place in the @StackOverflow #devsurvey2019! 💕

Congrats to @elixirlang and the entire community! Can you feel the love...?

#myelixirstatus
How can one #programminglanguage simultaneously rank on the most loved and most dreaded lists?! 😂 Hands up if you love #Erlang's duality! 🙌

They don't know what they're missing. #devsurvey2019

ICYMI: I’m delighted that we are welcoming the brilliant @matthewsgould as CEO of @NHSX!

We’ve also shared a few new details about NHSX...

1/6

gov.uk/government/new…
First up... we need a CTO for @NHSX. This person and their team will get to define and deliver the technical architecture for the NHS and social care.

The new CTO will also oversee @NHSX’s engineering, skunkworks and infrastructure work.

2/6
From July, @NHSX will mandate internationally recognised technology & data standards across the NHS—so that all systems can talk to each other.

This initially includes SNOMED-CT, ICD-10, HTML5 & WCAG 2.1 AA

Every project developed in the NHS will be released as #opensource

Parece coisa de 1º de abril, mas não é. É a história de porque defendemos #transparência e software #opensource em governo, em seu capítulo mais pedagógico possível. Segue o fio: imaginem uma startup que oferece serviços para o poder público. Por doação. "Sem contrapartidas"...
Que alega estar em 14 estados e 30 redes de ensino, atendendo com seu app voltado à educação pública + de 140 mil profs e 2,3 milhões de alunos, e enviando SMS a seus mais de 3 milhões de responsáveis. Oferecendo o modelo a outros órgãos, pelo evidente sucesso q diz ter obtido
Sim, esses órgãos estariam compartilhando informações pessoais diariamente com uma startup por meio de termo de doação - que é, na verdade, apenas uma licença de uso gratuito por um tempo; aliás, as milhões de pessoas que estavam tendo seus dados transmitidos sabem disso?

Today I want to talk about a couple of things I dislike about my (sub)field.

🅰️ I hate closed sourced langs & the epitome: Matlab.
neuroplausible.com/matlab

🅱️ I hate how coding is (not) taught to people.
neuroplausible.com/programming
High-level point:

Everybody in psych/neuro should be taught to code & taught an #opensource #openscience programming language.
Before I dive in to saying what I dislike about closed source langs & Matlab esp, I would like to make some clarifications/caveats because the last thing I want is to add confusion to an already tricky issue since some people (e.g., women, PoC) are told they "can't code" often:

A bit of history:
When I inquired them about their widely reported GPL non-compliance in Jan 2017, their IP counsel got in touch with me superfast and made me a promise that they will release all required code in a month and are working on it, and perhaps 2 month tops 3/

Bir yazılım geliştiricinin bilmesi gerekenlerle ilgili 15 maddelik flood geliyor.. Mümkün olduğunca fazla keywordü bir araya toplamaya çalıştım.
Hadi Başlıyoruz!

#Developer #Software #Java #code #kod #yazılım #development #computer #bilgisayar #tool #PC #IT #web #tech #data
1-Temel veri yapıları (linkedList, map, tree vb) ve temel algoritmalar (sıralama, arama vb)

Sıfırdan kodlama ihtiyacınız büyük ihtimalle hiç olmayacak. Ancak ihtiyaç anında doğru yerde doğrusunu seçebilmek için o veri yapısının veya algoritmanın nasıl çalıştığını bilmeniz şart
2- Network Temelleri

OSI Modelini ve 7 katmanı; temel protokolleri(#TCP-IP, TCP-UDP, #HTTP, #FTP), güvenlik protokollerini(#HTTPS, #SFTP, #SSL), monitoring protokolleri(#SNMP, ICMP) bilmekte fayda var. Ayrıca ağ ekipmanlarının görevlerini tanımak ve 7Layer yerlerini bilmek lazım
