It’s a comprehensive and mature backup system forked from the Bacula project when it headed proprietary a few years back. Simon joined Randall Schwartz to interview one of its founders and find out where it was headed and just what sort of open source project it is.
Simon went to the studio (complete with an audience from Italy) to co-host FLOSS Weekly covering Aquameta, an application building platform that sits atop PostgreSQL.
This week on FLOSS Weekly Simon co-hosted a fascinating conversation with NextCloud’s founder Frank Karlitschek.
Want a WYSIWYG editor for your CMS content? Simon co-hosted a FLOSS Weekly show all about the HAX project — Headless Authoring eXperience — this week which does exactly that. It’s a young project and deserves wider visibility, so take a look!
Simon co-hosted this week’s show, which looked at a very interesting identity management system called Keycloak that puts commercial-strength federated authentication, authorisation and identity management within the reach of every developer. It’s written in Java, backed by Red Hat and has a large and active community.
Simon actually went to the Petaluma, CA studio to co-host FLOSS Weekly 481, along with an audience of winners from the most recent Bolzano Hackathon. The project interviewed was Chomper, a proxy server that lets you whitelist and blacklist web sites with the intent of avoiding distractions for your work.
