Collaborating as a Team

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


One of the major issues facing Software Development Team is Collaboration. As such, a lot of software has been created to help improve collaboration between programmers. However, as some solutions are created, it seems to open doors to other issues. So, with a lot of software at our disposal, programmers begin to get distracted with too many applications for collaboration. The use of email has been efficient but recently a lot of organizations are beginning to avoid it as it has begun creating a new set of issues.

How to Get Developers to Adopt Your Product

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


Recently, I participated in a focus group where developers were asked to discuss how they make technology adoption decisions. Even “the big guys” seem unsure of how to get developers to notice and adopt their products. So, in this post, I’m going to try to reduce our learning and adoption process down to some concrete steps. The truth is, we don’t just pick up tools, components, libraries, or languages just to complete a particular task or project. In truth, any technology we adopt has to help us do one or more of three important jobs. The more of these jobs your product can do, the more likely developers will pick it up and stick with it.

Open Source is Everywhere

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


“OPEN SOURCE”- it’s FREE! This is what comes first to mind when someone asks us about our knowledge of Open Source. It was the case with us until someone told us about what exactly Open Source is and its importance in the present IT sector. Today we definitely stand apart from not only our classmates but also from those who believe that open source is just what you do to pass the time and because it’s OPEN SOURCE.

Projects from the Open Source World

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


Red Hat Certified Engineer – what a big name. This certification made us feel confident that we can excel in the field of Open Source irrespective of what we are at present, which is either a student or an employee working in a multinational company. It was the end of our vacation of the third year and the start of another era called the final year. But this era would not be easy as that spent in the last three years, as there will be different obstacles moving forward.

The Shadow Man on Our campus

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


Engineering is the platform where after the tenure of a four-year term we look back, feel proud about some of our own decisions, and regret others as well. Such as the following case at our college when first-time industry professionals met with one of the most experienced trainers of Red Hat, at our campus, spreading the word of Open Source.

7 Things to Worry About w/Microservices

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


So recently, the idea that Monoliths should be discouraged and that Microservices be embraced has taken over the Software Development space. A project made into a single code base is to be taken out and broken into manageable pieces. It is better to work with manageable sub-units than a whole bunch of one big stuff. Well, as the saying goes, small-scale always wins.

A Decade in the Open Organization

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


10 years ago, I started my first day at Red Hat by relocating geek toys and Despair posters to my new work-home. This was back in the days when floor-to-ceiling office walls were a thing. While the cubicles were closed, I was amazed at how the organization was open… and honestly was a little concerned.

Writing Sleek Functions

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


Your functions must be small, very small. The number of lines a function take should be small enough so the main concept of the function is understood without having to go too far. Beyond having functions that are small, they should do only one thing and one thing alone, and they should do it very well.

Naming Matters

This article is written as opinion. The opinions expressed within are solely those of the author, and do not represent the views of Red Hat.


Everything around us has a name, I mean everything, otherwise, how would we be able to refer to them, particularly in programming. From our project name, directories, variables, and more, a name must be associated with every item or else we lose their meaning and use.
