Sonatype has teamed up with SANS institute to bring you this informative webcast: Best Practices for Managing Software Development Risks
Eighty percent of a typical application is assembled from open source and proprietary components. Development teams turn to components to gain efficiencies and speed innovation. While the promise of components is significant, organizations must mitigate risk by properly managing components.
How do you accomplish this given the volume, complexity and diversity of today’s components?
Join us on Wednesday, February 6th from 1:00PM-2:00PM EST (GMT-0500) as Ryan Berg, Sonatype CSO, discusses how you can realize the benefits of component-based software development while mitigating security, licensing and quality risks.
Time is running out! Share your open source knowledge, experiences and challenges for your chance to win Jason’s brand new Apple workstation including a 15″ MacBook Pro with Retina display, a 27″ Thunderbolt display, an Apple Magic Mouse and an Apple Wireless Keyboard. We’ve also snagged both of his iPad minis. That’s enough loot for 3 winners!
Our survey closes at 11:59:59 pm EST, January 15, 2013, so don’t miss your chance! Also, if you respond to our survey, we’ll give you early access to our findings.
The survey will take less than 10 minutes. We promise.
*Official Rules for the Sonatype Open Source Survey Promotion can be found here.
We want to hear about your experiences and challenges using open source software in development. Please take 10 minutes and share your thoughts.
In return, you could win Jason’s brand new Apple workstation including a 15″ MacBook Pro with Retina display, a 27″ Thunderbolt display, an Apple Magic Mouse and an Apple Wireless Keyboard. We’ve also snagged both of his iPad minis. That’s enough loot for 3 winners!
Last year, more than 2,500 of you shared some really interesting information. If you respond to this year’s survey, we’ll give you early access to our findings.
A few weeks ago, a few of us joined the Jenkins community at the Jenkins User Conference 2012 in San Francisco. Our presentation “Improving Software Quality Using Component Lifecycle Management with Jenkins” given by Manfred Moser, was very well attended and there seemed to be a lot of interest. A video of our presentation has now been posted here and you can download the slides as well.
Have Jenkins (or Hudson) up and running, and want to give Insight for CI plugin a try? The plugin is available in the plugin center and easy to install and configure. — Just add a post build step and configure it to scan (e.g. your build output war file). Get the plugin.
Summary and component results are completely free and will give you a very good indication of the security and license issues (or better their absence) of your software. We’ve even got you covered for manual scans – have a try with Insight App Health Check.
Sonatype will be exhibiting at JavaOne 2012 in San Francisco from October 1-3 at Hilton Union Square, and we can’t wait.
Be sure to swing by our booth (#5508) to run into the likes of Jason van Zyl, Brian Fox, Igor Fedorenko and Manfred Moser, who will be on-hand to help answer your questions. We’ll also be demoing some cool things we’re working on.
