“I was able to make my first contribution yesterday, and today it was merged. I'm so excited about my first steps in open source", a participant said about the First Summit for Open Source Contributors, which took place this September in ... [More] Guadalajara, México. How do you involve others in open source? How can we make this space more inclusive for groups with low representation in the field?  With these questions in mind and the call to contribute to software that is powering the world's favorite products, the Apache Software Foundation, along with the CNCF, sponsored the First Summit for Open Source Contributors in Mexico. Google, Software Guru magazine, Wizeline Academy, OSOM (a consortium to engage more Mexican developers in open source), IBM, Intel, Salesforce and Indeed were some of the companies that organized the conference. The event consisted of 2 days of training and presentations on a selection of open source projects, including Apache Beam, Gnome, Node JS, Apache Cassandra, Kubernetes, Firefox, Drupal, Apache Flink and others. Sam Ruby, president of the ASF, participated in a panel discussion with Chris Aniszczyk, CTO at the CNCF, and also presented a session on the Apache Way. ASF board member, Myrle Krantz, presented a session about a project’s lifecycle at Apache. Through sessions like these, accompanied by 19 workshops focused on specific projects, participants were able to learn about the state of open source in Latin America, and also get dedicated coaching and hands-on practice to become active contributors in OSS. While unpaid, these collaborations represent the most popular way of learning to code and building a portfolio for young professionals, or people looking to do a career shift towards tech.  As reported by many advocacy groups in the past few years, diversity remains a big debt in the tech industry. Only an average of 8.4% of employees in ten of the leading tech companies are Latinx. The gap is even bigger in open source software, where only 2.6% of committers to Apache projects are Latinx. Diversity in tech is not just the right thing to do, it is also good business: bringing more diverse participation in software development will result in more inclusive and successful products, that serve a more comprehensive set of use cases and needs in any given population.  While representation numbers in the creation of software are still looking grim, the use of OSS is growing fast: It is estimated that Cloud and big-data OSS technologies will grow five times by 2025 in Latin America. The main barrier for contributing? Language.  The First Summit for Open Source Contributors set out to close this fundamental gap between tech users and its makers. To tackle this problem 135 hours of content were created in Spanish for 481 participants, which produced over 200 new contributors across 19 open source projects. When asked why contributions from the region are so low, 41% of participants said it was due to lack of awareness, and 34% said they thought their contributions were not valuable. After the event, 47% of participants reported that the workshops and presentations provided them with information or guidance on how to contribute to specific projects, and 39% said the event helped them to lose fear and contribute. Almost 100% of participants stated that they plan to continue contributing to Open Source in the near future… and if they do, they would raise representation of Latinx in Open Source to 10%.  This event left us with a lot of hope for the future of diversity and inclusion in open source. Going forward, we hope to continue supporting this summit in Latin America.  Pictures Main picture: https://photos.app.goo.gl/pLbfdA8ZdgYDzePC6 - CC-BY- SA Software Guru Hands on workshop: https://photos.app.goo.gl/vGmqcrVbYdpRPzYi9 - CC-BY-SA Fernando Hernández Hands on workshop: https://photos.app.goo.gl/TckSPFpbVVqQ8rHg9 - CC-BY-SA Fernando Hernández Organizing team: https://photos.app.goo.gl/A4u1jTDPxVwNQdAz8  (need to get names) - CC-BY-SA Héctor Eryx Paredes Camacho Sam Ruby Presenting on how to contribute to Apache projects: https://photos.app.goo.gl/v7R5ahUh6tPfNaPU7 - CC-BY- SA Software Guru Fireside chat with Sam Ruby: https://photos.app.goo.gl/fotkMTk2yvSK2NB46 - CC-BY-SA Fernando Hernández Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQy7YqWDbmo - CC-BY-SA Software Guru View more pictures of the event here: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOd_8EFVS7GHKXucIUo5DU1CBAy-sgY-QXAOWgbDeWyc6Ya1OyhYz5XxGNka2dn0Q?key=eHA3QlRqMW5jSVE3bi1UTFZNUEE4Y3RpSVJPQVVn View some of the recorded presentations here: https://sg.com.mx/buzz/evento-sg/ccoss-2019 [Written By: María Cruz, Google Open Source] font-family: Arial; font-size: 18.6667px; font-weight: 700; white-space: pre-wrap;">La ASF ayuda a promover la diversidad en código abierto en la Primera Cumbre de Colaboradores de OSS en México “Pude hacer mi primera contribución ayer, y hoy se fusionó. Estoy muy entusiasmado con mis primeros pasos en código abierto", dijo un participante sobre la Primera Cumbre para Contribuyentes de Código Abierto, que tuvo lugar el pasado mes de septiembre en Guadalajara, México. ¿Cómo involucrar a otros en código abierto?, ¿Cómo podemos hacer este espacio más inclusivo para grupos con baja representación en este campo? Con estas preguntas en mente y el llamado a contribuir al software que está impulsando los productos favoritos del mundo, la Apache Software Foundation, junto a la CNCF, patrocinaron la Primera Cumbre de Contribuyentes de Código Abierto en México. Google, la revista Software Guru, Wizeline Academy, OSOM (un consorcio para involucrar a más desarrolladores mexicanos en código abierto), IBM , Intel, Salesforce e Indeed fueron algunas de las compañías que organizaron la conferencia.  El evento consistió en dos días de entrenamiento y presentaciones de una selección de proyectos de código abierto, incluidos Apache Beam, Gnome, Node JS, Apache Cassandra, Kubernetes, Firefox, Drupal, Apache Flink y otros.  Sam Ruby, presidente de la ASF, participó en un panel con Chris Aniszczyk, CTO de la CNCF, y también presentó una sesión sobre la cultura  Apache (Apache Way). Miembro de la junta directiva de la ASF, Myrle Krantz, sobre el ciclo de vida que tienen los proyectos en Apache. A través de sesiones como éstas, acompañadas de 19 talleres, los participantes pudieron aprender sobre el estado del código abierto en América Latina, y recibieron entrenamiento práctico y asesoría personalizada; para convertirse en contribuyentes activos en software de código abierto u OSS, por sus siglas en inglés. Si bien no son remuneradas, estas colaboraciones son la forma más popular de aprender a programar y crear un portafolio para jóvenes profesionales o personas que buscan hacer un cambio de carrera hacia tecnología. Según lo informado por muchos grupos que promueven el OSS en los últimos años, la diversidad sigue siendo una gran deuda en la industria tecnológica. En promedio, sólo el 8.4% de los empleados en diez de las principales compañías tecnológicas son Latinx. La brecha es aún mayor en el software de código abierto, donde sólo el 2.6% de los encargados de proyectos de Apache son latinx. La diversidad en la tecnología además de ser lo correcto, también es un buen negocio: lograr una participación más diversa en el desarrollo de software dará como resultado productos más inclusivos y exitosos, que atiendan un conjunto más completo de casos de uso y necesidades en una población determinada. Si bien los números de representación en la creación de software lucen sombríos, el uso de OSS está creciendo rápidamente; se estima que las tecnologías OSS de nube y big data crecerán 5 veces para 2025 en América Latina. ¿La principal barrera para contribuir? El Idioma. La Primera Cumbre de Contribuyentes de Código Abierto se propuso cerrar esta brecha fundamental entre los usuarios de tecnología y sus creadores. Para abordar este problema, creamos, en asociación con otras compañías, 135 horas de contenido en español para 481 participantes, lo que produjo más de 200 nuevos contribuyentes en 19 proyectos de código abierto. Cuando se les preguntó por qué las contribuciones de la región son tan bajas, el 41% de los participantes dijo que se debía a la falta de conocimiento, y el 34% dijo que pensaban que sus contribuciones no eran valiosas. Después del evento, el 47% de los participantes reportó que los talleres y las presentaciones les proporcionaron información u orientación sobre cómo contribuir a proyectos específicos, y el 39% dijo que el evento les ayudó a perder el miedo y contribuir. Casi el 100% de los participantes declararon que planean seguir contribuyendo al OSS en el futuro cercano ... y si lo hacen, aumentarían la representación de Latinx en proyectos de código abierto al 10%. Este evento nos dejó con muchas esperanzas para el futuro de la diversidad e inclusión en código abierto. En el futuro, esperamos continuar apoyando esta cumbre en América Latina. [Less]

One month has passed since NetBeans 11.2 had been released. There are 82 new PR-s made it to the master branch so far. We usually have a, not necessary intentional, "theme" for each release. I'd say the theme is for 11.3 is: "Remove the Rust". Our ... [More] code and libraries spent long time in the transit. Many of our modules were still compiling against Java 1.6 and/or used ancient versions of third party libraries. 11.3 improved a lot on this front and there are still many PR are in the queue to carry that on. Without trying to be complete, here is a small list of changes what's coming: - Jgit Library Update - ASM, PostgreSQL, JUnit5 and Other Library Updates. - PHP Fixes - HTML Lexer Stability Improvements - JSF 2.3 Support - Gradle Tooling 6.0 - Several Cleanups, Remove Compile Warnings On the UI Side: - Return of Dark Metal and Dark Nimbus Look and Feel - Experimental support for Flatlaf Look and Feel On Gradle Side: - Test Output is Channeled Back to the IDE - Added Project Reload Action - Elephant Icons Finally Replace the old Ones [Less]

Non-profit organizations like The Apache Software Foundation serve the public good in many ways. It is critical to our mission and to the mission of many other non-profits, that we be able to reliably disseminate information via the Internet. This ... [More] principle of enabling the open exchange of information to and among those we serve lies at the heart of what we do at The Apache Software Foundation. Indeed it lies at the heart of a free society. It is for that reason that we object to the sale of the .org registry to a for-profit company. A private, for-profit registry is unlikely to protect the interests of non-profit foundations and organizations on the Internet the way a non-profit can. We call on ICANN to stop the sale of the Public Interest Registry to Ethos Capital, and ensure that the .org registry remains in the hands of a body capable of governing neutrally and with sensitivity to the issues that are unique to the non-profit business sector.
