IBM to Open Projects at SourceForge.net
I am very excited about this. Not only does it mean a fortune 400(500?) company looking over source code for insecurities, but also a faster pace of development and releases. This could be a huge stepping stone for other companies to see the potiential in assisting the OS community, even under a BSD license. Let's hope other's follow suit.
On Friday, the company said it is contributing some 30 projects to SourceForge.net, a repository of open source code and related material.
The Somers, N.Y. based software group also said it is expanding its own developerWorks Web site with more resources including training in PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) a popular open-source programming language for creating Web pages. and other popular technologies. It is also working with Zend Technologies on a new developerWorks subsite devoted to PHP.
