Christmas is around the corner, but I couldn’t wait and I have already been trying the new Ruby release! Ruby 2.6, apart from efficiency improvements, which include the initial implementation of a just-in-time compiler, brings us many new cool features. Taking advance of the cold outside, let’s discover some of them!
One more year, Google Summer of Code (GSoC), a mentoring program in which openSUSE helps university students contribute to open source project, has come to an end. So, before 2018 ends as well and we start preparing for the new edition of GSoC, it is time to speak about all the great things that happened this year.
David Kang and I attended two weeks ago (12-14 Oct) the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) Mentor Summit in California representing openSUSE. Here is our report of the conference.
openSUSE.Asia Summit is an annual conference organized since 2014 every time in a different Asian city. Although it is a really successful event, which plays a really important role in spreading openSUSE all around the world, it is not an event everybody in openSUSE knows about. Because of that I would like to tell you about my experience attending the last openSUSE.Asia Summit, which took place on August 10-12 in Taipei, Taiwan.
As you may already know, openSUSE participates again in GSoC, an international program that awards stipends to university students who contribute to real-world open source projects during three months in summer. Our students started working already two months ago. Ankush, Liana and Matheus have passed the two evaluations successfully and they are busy hacking to finish their projects. Go on reading to find out what they have to say about their experience, their projects and the missing work for the few more weeks.
We always enjoy that new people join openSUSE community and help them in their first steps. Because of that, openSUSE participates again in GSoC, an international program in which stipends are awarded to students who hack on open source projects during the summer. We are really excited to announce that this year four students will learn about open source development while hacking on openSUSE projects. The coding period started last week, so our students are already busy hacking and they have written some nice articles about their projects.
Hi! I am running as openSUSE Board member and I would like to let you know more about me, my view of what openSUSE is and why I want to be in the Board.
openSUSE participates again in Google Summer of Code (GSoC), a program that awards stipends to university students who contribute to real-world open source projects during three months in summer. With this article, I will provide my experience as a former GSoC student and mentor, give you more details about the program and try to encourage Indonesian students to get involved in openSUSE development through GSoC.
It is already 2 years since Ruby 2.3 was released. While the controversial
&., which is claimed to allow writing incomprehensible code, has become really popular in blog post and conferences, we have heard very little about the
Array#dig methods. Those methods were mentioned together in the release notes, as both try to make easier dealing with
nil values. But why is then the
dig method not that “popular”? Can we after two years say something new about it? And the most important part, should we start using it, if we haven’t use it until now?
It seems I have really well behaved on 2017, because Santa Claus brought me a failing test for Christmas. I found out a piece of code, that was only wrong from 26th to 31st December. Image you want to write a Ruby method for a Rails project, where you want to get all the users of the database that have birthday today or in the next 6 days, given that the birth date is stored in the database for all users. How would you do it?
