DARPA gamifies open-source software testing

  • The Register; By Jasper Hamill (Posted by bob on Jun 9, 2014 1:35 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Games
Secret-squirrel military tech bureau DARPA has designed a series of computer games which can help to verify open source software. It is working on the games under the auspices of its Crowd Sourced Formal Verification programme. The idea is to perform the soft of software verification which is generally conducted by technical experts. “There are not enough human experts or available time to demonstrate that software is secure and reliable – so what we’ve done is repackage what human experts would normally do and produce tens of thousands of game levels for players on the internet to play games for us,” Matthew Barry, who is principal investigator at Kestrel Technology, the firm working with DARPA to develop the games, told

  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Red Hat
The case for open source dominating the cloud rests on the fact that it’s already the foundation for many popular cloud services and enterprise applications. Whitehurst aptly notes that outside of Microsoft Azure, the underlying infrastructure of all the major public cloud services is built upon open source software. Furthermore, software like Linux, Apache, MySQL, WordPress and many others are already widely used and trusted by most enterprises.

OnePlus One Review: The CyanogenMod Powered Smartphone

The OnePlus One uses a version of CyanogenMod 11 called 11S. This is based around Android 4.4.2 Kitkat (for those of you keeping track, the current version in the handset is 11.0-XNPH22Q). As one of the first phones to ship out of the factory with CyanogenMod installed (as opposed to sitting down with a multitude of flashing tools, roms, and long linux command line incantations to switch over an existing Android handset), this significantly reduces the barrier of entry into the world of CyanogenMod.
