Brad YaleWhy Open Source Matters: Musings from All Things Open 2014

A few months back I wrote a post titled "Why Open Source Matters: Musings from OSCON 2014". The post covered five reasons why Open Source matters. Those reasons were/are:


  1. Code, Glitches and Open Source Security

Brad YaleFull Programming Life Cycle Learning with Pearson Learning Labs

Here's the thing: I work for Pearson Education and InformIT. As such, I already know anything I say, do or mention that promotes Pearson Education and InformIT products will be looked at as a nod to staying employed. I get that. I do.

But in all honesty, what I am about to endorse is not a product of wanting to stay employed or a product of a forced corporate hand. No. What I am about to endorse is a product which I have used, compared to similar services and have come away impressed.
