We’ve had the Open Source Bridge call for proposals open for a few weeks now, and we’re already starting to see some great concepts rolling in. But we can’t keep all this goodness to ourselves. That’s why the proposal system is open—so that you can read about what’s being submitted and comment on which proposals you’d like to see.
To make sure that you’re aware of all of the great content we’re receiving, we’re going to highlight certain tracks and topics from time to time.
Today’s track? Cooking.
What does Cooking entail exactly?
Useful recipes for software development, systems administration, and working with open source. From the beginner to the advanced level, we’re looking for tips, tutorials, and best practices. Share what you know about your favorite tools, programming languages, and development techniques.
We’re already seeing some great ideas, like:
- Glen Ropella‘s “Open Source Agent-Based Modeling Toolkits” which provides a “Brief introduction and tutorial for building fine-grained agent-based models (ABMs) using open-source modeling toolkits like Swarm, RePast, MASON, etc.”
- Josh Berkus‘ “Building a SQL Database That Works” which offers developers guidance with “some simple recipes for how to think about designing your SQL databases so that they are simple, maintainable, expandable and easy to troubleshoot.”
- Lennon Day-Reynolds‘ “Long Tails Can’t Always Wag the Dog” which will help developers with forking, including “some simple tools + practices will help keep you from getting stuck with an unmaintainable mess.”
