Open source is 20: How it changed programming and business forever
Every company in the world now uses open-source software. Microsoft, once its greatest enemy, is now an enthusiastic open supporter. Even Windows is now built using open-source techniques. And if you ever searched on Google, bought a book from Amazon, watched a movie on Netflix, or looked at your friend's vacation pictures on Facebook, you're an open-source user. Not bad for a technology approach that turns 20 on February 3... Read More
Since computer technology evolves so rapidly, does it matter if you have 5 or 15 years of experience as e.g. software developer?
Computer technology, on the other hand, doesn’t evolve as rapidly. Desktop computers have been around for decades. Laptops work in the very same way - except for the portability aspect which basically ports existing hardware to mobile formats (adhering to the same architectural standards).
So a programmer building software 20 years ago was solving the same problems (more or less) as an engineer does in 2017. Some programming languages and libraries (or frameworks) make that easier by providing the toolkit automating some of those paradigms... Read More
