GitHub Predicts Hottest 2018 Open Source Trends
"The hottest project and community results in 2017, then, would logically foretell growth areas and trends for the coming year. This is what emerged:

Cross-platform development: Projects focused on cross-platform web development experienced the largest growth in activity. The most-starred projects related to Angular, React and Electron, all of which attracted significantly more visitors and contributors in 2017. In particular, Angular/angular-cli more than doubled its contributor base over the past year.
Deep learning: The number of visitors to TensorFlow also more than doubled in 2017, while the TensowFlow/models repo’s visitorship more than quintupled. Keras and Mozilla’s DeepSpeech also saw significant increases in contributions and visitors."

What Role Should Colleges Play in Workplace Training?
"Data doesn’t support this either, according to a recent article in The Street. “When it comes to middle-skills jobs, Fuller found no difference in performance among people with and without a college degree. Yet employers still look for people with college degrees, who only make up about one-third of the entire workforce.” Fuller explains it with a fishing metaphor. “When you start up-credentialing your jobs you’re doing the equivalent of rowing your boat over to this tightly crowded part of the pond. Maybe there are fish elsewhere.”

Progress Report - Unit4 Analyst Summit - New Achitecture and Deep Verticals - by @holgermu
"On the concern side Unit4 has its hands full. New platform, Business World On almost completely on it, new acquisitions to integrate and a new value proposition for customers. The good news for customers is that Unit4 is almost out the tunnel… It would be well advised to find a more aggressive go to market in North America in regards of its ERP products. More competition is good for customers and markets. And modern offerings are only modern … for so long."

Atlassian Futurist Sees Teamwork, not Chatbots, Defining the Future of Work
"Not to worry, said Dominic Price, who is the head of research and development and resident “work futurist” at Atlassian. During a recent phone interview he noted that in the last 144 years, technology created more jobs than it took away. True, there has been mass displacement and the actual roles that remain are very different, but overall more jobs have been created. He doesn’t think artificial intelligence, or intelligence assistance, or machine learning, or whatever term you want to use will be any different."

Codecademy Co-Founder: ‘The Future of Coding is the Future of Work’
"There has, however, been a seismic shift in the learn-to-code landscape over the past decade, and things have particularly accelerated in the last five years. For example, in 2011, just under 40,000 computer science degrees were earned, total, across every college and university in the US. In 2016, by contrast, more than 20,000 people graduated from “learn to code” boot camps alone."

Amidst Bias, Women Work to Find a Place in Open Source Communities
"But once women find jobs in the industry, bias soon becomes apparent for many. The Bitergia study found that 40 percent of women working in the cloud said they were satisfied with their jobs, while 30 percent said they feel stereotyped and only just fewer than half said they believe their company is a true meritocracy. Meanwhile, 48 percent of women in the cloud said they feel that there is a boys’ club in senior management, and 33 percent said gender bias is part of their company culture."

Progress Report - Unit4 lays out a big vision - now it needs to execute - by @holgermu
"On the concern side Unit4 has the luxury that it ‘only’ needs to execute. Cloud bookings are growing 70+, and the vendor needs to maintain that momentum. Equally it needs to deliver on the product side – no roadmap was offered, so the vendor will need to issue one soon and then deliver and execute to it."
