GitHub, Microsoft's wildly popular developer service, launches a new service to help programmers get paid for their open source code (MSFT)

GitHub is launching GitHub Sponsors, a new feature that lets users contribute financially to the developers who build and maintain open source software. It addresses a major issue: Open source software is incredibly important to the functioning of the internet, but it's largely developed by unpaid volunteers who never see a cent from their labors.  GitHub is also announcing the acquisition of the popular Dependabot tool, which helps open source maintainers scan their projects for outdated depe...

Rogess: chess with roguelike combat

Roguelike games (previously) are "a subgenre of role-playing video game characterized by a dungeon crawl through procedurally generated levels, turn-based gameplay, tile-based graphics, and permanent death of the player character" (Wikipedia). Jonathan Lessard and Pippin Barr's Rogess is a mashup of roguelike combat and chess, for two players ("mediocre AI available" -Pippin Barr), built from HTML5 elements and playable on mobile devices. Barr calls it "Surprisingly fun and different to re...

ZenHub Workspaces make GitHub easier to use across teams

ZenHub, a project management tool for GitHub, today announced the launch of Workspaces, a feature that makes it easier for teams to use its service — and GitHub — by allowing them to tweak the service to the needs of specific teams while still using GitHub as the ground truth for their work. With Workspaces, teams can create multiple workspaces inside a GitHub repository (ZenHub does this through a Chrome extension) so that a team of developers can get a detailed view of every issue, for e...

Announcing TechCrunch Sessions: Enterprise this September in San Francisco

Of the many categories in the tech world, none is more ferociously competitive than enterprise. For decades, SAP, Oracle, Adobe, Microsoft, IBM and Salesforce, to name a few of the giants, have battled to deliver the tools businesses want to become more productive and competitive. That market is closing in on $500 billion in sales per year, which explains why hundreds of new enterprise startups launch every year and dozens are acquired by the big incumbents trying to maintain their edge. Las...

GitHub gets a package registry

GitHub today announced the launch of a limited beta of the GitHub Package Registry, its new package management service that lets developers publish public and private packages next to their source code. To be clear, GitHub isn’t launching a competitor to tools like npm or RubyGems. What the company is launching, however, is a service that is compatible with these tools and allows developers to find and publish their own packages, using the same GitHub interface they use for their code. The ne...

Microsoft and GitHub grow closer

Microsoft’s $7.5 billion acquisition of GitHub closed last October. Today, at its annual Build developer conference, Microsoft announced a number of new integrations between its existing services and GitHub. None of these are earth-shattering or change the nature of any of GitHub’s fundamental features, but they do show how Microsoft is starting to bring GitHub closer into the fold. It’s worth noting that Microsoft isn’t announcing any major GitHub features at Build, though it’s only a few...

Microsoft open-sources its quantum computing development tools

Microsoft’s quantum computer may not have a working qubit yet, but the company has been hard at work on building the tools to program future quantum computers. Over the course of the last few years, the company announced both Q#, a programming language for writing quantum code and a compiler for this language, as well as a quantum simulator. Today, Microsoft announced that it will open source these efforts in the coming months. This move, the company says, is meant to make “quantum computing...

Chinese developer arrested after compromising every single drone by ‘accidentally’ posting DJI’s private keys on Github

A Chinese developer has exposed DJI’s AES private keys by posting them onto Github in plain text. By doing this, he made it easy to decrypt DJI’s encrypted flight control firmware. So, when it was discovered, it sent the man to jail and he’ll have to pay a fine of nearly $30,000. The Register writes […] The post Chinese developer arrested after compromising every single drone by ‘accidentally’ posting DJI’s private keys on Github appeared first on DIY Photography.

Surge is free, deep synth for every platform, with MPE support

Surge is a deep multi-engine digital soft synth – beloved, then lost, then brought back to life as an open source project. And now it’s in a beta that’s usable and powerful and ready on every OS. I wrote about Surge in the fall when it first hit a free, open source release: Vember Audio owner @Kurasu made this happen. But software just “being open sourced” often leads nowhere. In this case, Surge has a robust community around it, turning this uniquely open instrument into something you can hap...

Jack Ma is very very very wrong about the 996 rule

Jack Ma, the billionaire founder of Chinese tech company Alibaba, has come out in favor of the so-called 996 rule, i.e. that you should work from 9am to 9pm 6 days a week if you want to have a successful career. For anyone doing the math that’s 72 hours of work a week. Add a 1 hour commute on top of that and there’s very little time left for your family, kids, hobbies, exercise, His belief in this is unshakeable: “I personally think that 996 is a huge blessing,” he said. “How do you achieve ...

A group of Microsoft and GitHub employees have come out in support of Chinese tech workers protesting the infamous '996' work hours (MSFT)

On Monday, a group of Microsoft and GitHub employees published an open letter to show their support for a project called 996.ICU, which protests a harsh tech working culture in China. The name of the project is a reference to the idea that many tech workers work 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., six days a week, even though such practices are illegal in China. Employees decided to publish this letter because they were concerned that Microsoft is facing pressure to take down this project. Visit Business Inside...

How GitLab CEO Sid Sijbrandij built a $1 billion business by taking an idea from another programmer, then hiring the guy

Sid Sijbrandij, CEO of hot startup GitLab, fully admits that the original idea for his company came from a developer he had never met at the time. The developer was happy for Sijbrandij to take the idea and try to make money on it. It was a struggle at first — building the business cost Sijbrandij his life savings, and he ended up speculating on Bitcoin and dipping into his life savings to pay the bills.  But Sijbrandij eventually hired that original developer, Dmitriy Zaporozhets, full-time a...

The new new web

Over the last five years, almost everything about web development has changed. Oh, the old tech still works, your WordPress and Ruby On Rails sites still function just fine — but they’re increasingly being supplanted by radical new approaches. The contents of your browser are being sliced, diced, rendered, and processed in wholly new ways nowadays, and the state of art is currently in serious flux. What follows is a brief tour of what I like to call the New New Web: Table of Contents Single-P...

Microsoft and GitHub Workers Take a Stand Against Grueling, Inhumane '996' Culture in China

For tech workers in China, a brutal work schedule of 9am to 9pm, 6 days a week (usually just called “996") is not only commonplace, it’s been hailed as “a huge blessing” by the likes of Alibaba’s eccentric and fantastically wealthy taskmaster, Jack Ma. Read more...

Now ‘AI’ takes on writing death metal, country music hits, more

Machine learning is synthesizing death metal. It might make your death metal radio DJ nervous – but it could also mean music software works with timbre and time in new ways. That news – plus some comical abuse of neural networks for writing genre-specific lyrics in genres like country – next. Okay, first, whether this makes you urgently want to hear machine learning death metal or it drives you into a rage, either way you’ll want the death metal stream. And yes, it’s a totally live stream – yo...

China’s startup ecosystem is hitting back at demanding working hours

In China, the laws limit work to 44 hours a week and require overtime pay for anything above that. But many aren’t following the rules, and a rare online movement puts a spotlight on extended work hours in China’s booming tech sector. People from all corners of society have rallied in support for improvements to startup working conditions, while some warn of hurdles in a culture ingrained in the belief that more work leads to greater success. In late March, anonymous activists introduced 996.ICU...

The Scale of DDoS: Choosing the Right DDoS Protection

As the name suggests, a Denial of Service attack is designed to deny access to some service, to legitimate users. This can be accomplished in a variety of different ways – some attacks take advantage of some bottleneck or flaw in an application to take it offline in a relatively inexpensive manner, while other attacks take advantage of the fact that the response to some traffic (like DNS) is larger than the request. A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack takes the approach of using multip...

A rapidly proliferating software license bars use by companies with poor labor practices

Katt Gu and Suji Yan's Anti 996 License allows developers to prohibit the use of their code by companies that do not adhere to basic labor practices (996 is a Chinese software industry term for shops where coders work 9AM-9PM, 6 days/week). Under the license terms, the software can only be used by companies that adhere to the most restrictive of International Labour Organization standards and the labor laws in every country where the company has offices (ILO guidelines safeguard the right t...
