Black Duck Names Open Source Rookies of 2012
February 7, 2013
For five years running Black Duck has named its picks for the top open source rookies on the market. The 2012 list has just been announced and eWeek covers the story in their piece, “Black Duck Names 2012 Open-Source Rookies of the Year.”
The article begins:
“Black Duck Software has announced the 2012 Open Source Rookies of the Year, a list of hot new open-source projects initiated in 2012. Black Duck reviewed thousands of open-source projects started in 2012 to select this year’s group of Open Source Rookies. This is the fifth year Black Duck has compiled a list of top open-source projects.”
Among the honorees are: Ansible, Yahoo Mojito, Syte, Twitter Bower, and TypeScript among others. While the open source solutions serve different purposes in the economy and technology sector, they are all grounded by the strength of an open source based infrastructure. Many of the honorees are in emerging technology sectors like social media, but open source plays an important role in the enterprise as well. And while the enterprise may be slightly less exciting, open source is no less important. Take LucidWorks for example. Few would argue that its security, efficiency, and scalability are anything less than exciting.
