One core question around open source is how do you fund it? Well, there is always that PayPal donate button. But that's been a tremendous failure for many projects. Often the go-to answer is consulting. But what if you don't want to trade time for money? You could take things up a notch and change the equation, exchanging value for money. That' ...…

The Nobel prize in economics recently went to Paul Romer, a convert from proprietary software like Matlab over to Python and the SciPy stack. Paul said, “The more I learn about proprietary software, the more I worry that objective truth might perish from the earth.” That's quite the statement. But what if your organization is deeply committed t ...…

Do your applications call a lot of APIs? Maybe you have a bunch of microservices driving your app. You probably don't have the crazy combinatorial explosion that Zapier does for connecting APIs!

What do most web servers do most of the time? They wait. They wait on external systems while processing a request. Think about a standard web request to an ecommerce site where you are logged in. You send it a session cookie and a URL. It pulls a bunch of items from a database, a Redis cache, and an external API. Virtually all this time is spen ...…
