(Gawkwire) – “Best Practices for use of Open Source Libraries in Cloud-based Development” webinar, will take place on January 28, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. PST. The webinar will be hosted by White Source Software, the leading provider of agile solutions for open source license compliance and security management. Registration is now open.
The webinar will feature Corregan Brown, co- founder at ProjectLocker, a provider of cloud-based development solutions.
Mr. Brown will discuss the benefits and the possibilities cloud-based development offers. According to Gartner, the cloud is changing the way applications are designed, tested and deployed, resulting in a significant shift in application development practices. Cost is one consideration, but the primary reasons are collaboration and agility.
"Cloud development allows software engineers to collaborate in real-time, track changes, and work on multiple branches of a codebase. Working in the cloud, developers can focus on coding and not worry about installing, customizing and upgrading their tools. ProjectLocker Jenkins Hosting provides continuous integration for development teams, shortening build cycles and highlighting issues before they escalate." said Corregan Brown.
“The ubiquity of open source components for software development has served as a force multiplier on software teams. However, introducing open source libraries places a responsibility on developers to ensure the quality and security of the open source components they use. ProjectLocker and White Source Software have joined to provide a powerful cloud-based solution for developers that use open source." added Brown
Webinar participants will learn about best practices for cloud based development and open source management.
"The earlier you catch potential issues in your development process, the easier they are to fix, and the more time and money you save. With ProjectLocker managing your custom code and build, and White Source identifying yoursecurity vulnerabilities and ensuring licensing compliance, you can be assured that your project will leave the hands of your development team ready for release and free of both internal and external problems," said Rami Sass, CEO of White Source.
