Forges are essential in the open source and development communities, and the dynamics surrounding their use and popularity are of keen interest: which forges are “hot” and gaining ground, which are not, and which will survive in the long term? Black Duck frequently analyzes open source trends based on its comprehensive KnowledgeBase of open source project information, including projects for mobile, healthcare, license and language use, etc. To better understand development dynamics, we investigated language use by projects and commits within forges, tracking both the surge in use of dynamic languages and the forges that are hosting these dynamic language-based projects.

In this webinar, we will review the results of our forge analysis and present the expert commentary and perspective of Redmonk co-founder Steve O’Grady, who will also provide a predictive analysis regarding these trends.
