Tech Giants Back Initiative For Funding Crucial Open Source Projects

Zeljka Zorz | Help Net Security | April 24, 2014

The nonprofit Linux Foundation has announced the Core Infrastructure Initiative, a multi-million dollar project aimed to fund open source projects critical for the global information infrastructure, and a dozen of big tech companies have joined it and will be providing the funds.  Since the discovery of the OpenSSL Heartbleed bug some two weeks ago, the one positive thing brought forth by it is a better understanding of the limitations of open source software development.

The Money In Open-Source Software

Max Schireson and Dharmesh Thakker | Tech Crunch | February 9, 2016

It’s no secret that open-source technology — once the province of radicals, hippies and granola eaters — has gone mainstream.
