Digital innovation in finance - the open source imperative

Digital innovation is transforming finance. Advances in financial technology such as mobile money, peer-to-peer (P2P) or marketplace lending, robo advice, and insurance technology (InsurTech) are reshaping many areas – from payments to wealth management. Over the past decade, fintechs have already driven enhanced access to financial services for retail users. Technology advances in connectivity, data processing, and storage have contributed to the current wave of technology-based finance.

Introducing the Datadog Open Source Hub

At Datadog, we have always been deeply involved with open source software—producing it, using it, and contributing to it. Our Agent, tracers, SDKs, and libraries have been open source from the beginning, giving our customers the flexibility to extend our tools for their own needs. The transparency of our open source components also allows them to fully audit the Datadog software that is running on their systems. But our commitment to open source only starts there.

Image recognition with Python, OpenCV, OpenAI CLIP and pgvector

In this video you’ll learn how to build an offline face recognition pipeline to find faces on top of complex pictures. The full written explanation is available in the dedicated article The pipeline will use: Python and OpenCV to detect faces within complex pictures Python and an OpenAI CLIP model to calculate the face embeddings PostgreSQL and the pgvector extension to store the embeddings and calculate distance across them.

Learning in public: How to speed up your learning and benefit the OSS community, too

Technical folks in OSS communities often find themselves in permanent learning mode. Technology changes constantly, which means learning new things — whether it’s a new feature in the latest OSS release or an emerging industry best practice — is, for many of us, simply a natural part of our jobs. This is why it’s important to think about how we learn, and improve the skill of learning itself.


The Plan for InfluxDB 3.0 Open Source

The commercial version of InfluxDB 3.0 is a distributed, scalable time series database built for real-time analytic workloads. It supports infinite cardinality, SQL and InfluxQL as native query languages, and manages data efficiently in object storage as Apache Parquet files. It delivers significant gains in ingest efficiency, scalability, data compression, storage costs, and query performance on higher cardinality data.


Terraform is No Longer Open Source. Is OpenTofu (ex OpenTF) the Successor?

Terraform, a powerful Infrastructure as Code (IAC) tool, has long been the backbone of choice for DevOps professionals and developers seeking to manage their cloud infrastructure efficiently. However, recent shifts in its licensing have sent ripples of concern throughout the tech community. HashiCorp, the company behind Terraform, made a pivotal decision last month to move away from its longstanding open-source licensing, opting instead for the Business Source License (BSL) 1.1.

Securing Open Source Dependencies on Public Cloud

Aaron Whitehouse, Senior Director of Public Cloud Enablement at Canonical, explains why you need to be thinking about open source dependencies in your software pipelines. He covers three main areas of software dependency management: ESM is part of Canonical's Ubuntu Pro offering and gives developers access to approximately 30,000 packages that they can build on, confident in the knowledge that Canonical will patch high and critical vulnerabilities for up to 10 years while preserving API stability -- regardless of the upstream project's support lifecycle.

Building a Secure By-Design Pipeline with an Open Source Stack - Civo Navigate NA 23

Rotem Refael, Director of Engineering at Armo, delves deep into building a Secure by Design Pipeline using an open-source stack. Emphasizing the importance of the "Shift Left" strategy in the DevSecOps realm, she addresses the gaps in the traditional CI/CD pipeline and suggests comprehensive tools to address them. Rotem showcases the benefits of Kubescape, an open-source solution by Armo for Kubernetes security, and highlights the need for security gates throughout development.
