Leveraging Open-Source For Much Win! For Companies and You!

Versions of this talk have been presented at:

This talk is vitally important, as it explains how companies can have the developer presence and attraction of Google, and the personal brand success of people like Paul Irish if they wish. It's important that it is presented at non-open-source conferences, as that would just be preaching to the choir rather than to those web developers whom need it most.

Versions of this talk have been presented at:

Open-Source is a powerful force that when utilized allows for abundant collaboration of shared goals in an unfathomable scale.

Semantic Versioning Issues
View README.md

Semantic Versioning is great. It adds semantic meaning to those pesky version numbers.

The most popular semantic versioning standard is semver, which states:

revision = for b/c bug fixes with no public api changes/additions
minor = for b/c public api changes/additions
major = for b/c breaks around new public api changes/additions
accept revision and minor for changes (^ character)

Using AusKey on Mac OSX

Notes

  1. Use Safari. Whenever you are prompted about Java security, click the follow menu items:
    1. Safari -> Preferences -> Security -> Manage Website Settings... -> Java
    2. Use the dropdown to enable Allow Always and Run in Unsafe Mode for the gov.au entries
  2. Make sure no other downloads are running, as the website requires a fast ping to work and will timeout otherwise
  3. Each computer requires it's own AusKey
