Open Source Jumpstart Tooling Up Intro


Published on

Following on from the Open Source Jumpstart in April we are running the first event in a series designed to introduce the most common Open Source tools encountered as a professional developer at work or when contributing to OSS projects. The series will show how the concepts taught at University in computing science and software engineering modules can be applied effectively with Open Source tools and help establish a highly agile approach to the whole software development cycle.

  3. 3. Contents ● Goal of Open Source Jumpstart series ● Open source software (OSS) overview  ● Common development environment ● OSS tools overview ● How OSS tools support agile practices ● Eclipse ”live” demo ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  4. 4. Goals of OS Jumpstart ● Bridge the gap between academia and industry ● Introduce open source software (OSS) concept ● Highlight significance of OSS  ● Show how OSS tools support the agile process ● Introduce the commonly used OSS tools in  industry for development and testing ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  5. 5. The Modern Developer ● The role of a developer has changed radically ● They need to be extremely flexible ● They work on increasingly complex systems ● Requirements change at the drop of a hat  ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  6. 6. Gap between study  and industry ● University can only teach you so much ● Good placements help but are not easy to find ● Build on what you know ● Learn what happens in industry ● Build your skill set beyond your peers ● Experience practical application of skills on projects ● Make you CV more interesting to employers  ● Increase your earning potential ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  7. 7. Do you use OSS ? Raise your hand if you already use OSS ? ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  8. 8. Some popular OSS examples ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  9. 9. What is Open Source ● A licence model to distribute software ● ● Openness and freedom within software ● A open, collaborative and agile approach to  development ● A move away from  low value commercial  and/or restrictive software ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  10. 10. Why use Open Source ??      ● Its freely available – download it and try it out ● You can see how it works under the hood ● You can improve / extend how it works ● Communities to help you get things done ● OSS tools very common in industry ● Used extensively in agile companies  ● Latest technology often OSS ● Scala, Clojure, BDD tools, NoSQL, etc ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  11. 11. Is it really free? ● Copyright still applies ● Licence included in source code distribution ● Variety of licences ● GPL / LGPL – require giving back ● Apache License – commercial friendly ● Creative Commons – other creative works ● Community help given freely ● Commercial support available for big projects ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  12. 12. My company will provide...    ● Companies tend not to give you everything ● Fill in the gaps with OSS ● Cost savings on commondity things mean more  spending on high value stuff / training ● Many commercial products use OSS ● IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Google,  ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
  13. 13. So what's out there in  OSS land? ● Operating Systems ● Android, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, SuSe, etc ● Productivity suites ● Open Office, Inkscape, Gimp, OpenShot, Audacity,  blender, etc... ● Development languages ● Java, Scala, Clojure, C, C++, Python, Perl, PhP, etc ● Development and testing tools... ©LeanAgileMachine   Creative Commons License
