Masquerade: A Postgres Proxy to Mask Data in Realtime - Tonic
Redact and Replace in Realtime with no Additional Infrastructure

Many of our customers have multiple databases, complex application logic, and limited time. One of the easiest ways to protect your data is to add a proxy between the consumer (analyst, application, developer, etc) and the data base. Since the proxy doesn’t clone the data, there are no additional infrastructure costs. Most importantly, because the proxy sits between your application the database there is no need to replicate application logic and your application doesn’t need to care whether it’s communicating with the real database or the proxy.

Have you ever:

Wanted to let devs/QA test off production quality data without exposing customer information? Pull this off without setting up a new staging instance.
wanted to grant access to a database for some people to generate reports, but not want them to see sensitive data as they’re creating them? Accomplish this without heavy ETL or data sanitization.
Provide data to sales for demos with minimal effort? Configure complex relationships simply.

Gaia - Build powerful pipelines in any programming language.
Automation platform of the future

Automation processes and requirements have developed rapidly in recent years. Cloud, SaaS, PaaS, AaaS, Kubernetes, Docker, and many more technologies were invented to simplify the complexity and management of huge IT applications. Communication with external APIs and services for CI/CD is simply essential nowadays and hard to do right with simple configuration specs.

Gaia is the next evolution of automation platforms whose goal is to provide full flexibility and performance for today's CI/CD, but basically any automation workflow imaginable.
Enables DevOps

DevOps becomes more and more important and many developers are scared of this word because it usually implies writing endless lines of YAML/JSON configuration files to automate complex automation tasks.

Gaia requires no YAML/JSON or any other configuration spec to write automation workflows. An automation workflow (we named it pipeline) can be written in any programming language and adding it to Gaia usually takes a few seconds. Once a pipeline has been added, Gaia automatically detects changes and rebuilds your pipeline automatically.
Efficient and super fast
Gaia has been from the ground up developed with the goal to be ultra lightweight, efficient, super fast and developer-first. It's core is written in Go and the pipeline communication is based on googles battle-hardened gRPC which uses HTTP/2. The Unix philosophy (simple, modular and composable) is and will always be the base principle for Gaia.
Build by and for operators

Gaia is one self-contained binary which can be started without any configuration. Just download, unarchive and start it. We also provide various docker images ready to pull. You prefer to have all your tools running in Kubernetes? Don't worry, we also provide a helm chart.

Get started now and setup Gaia within seconds, develop your first pipeline in 5-10 minutes.

Science & Research (Drugs) > FDA’s MyStudies Application (App)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is posting computer code and a technical roadmap that will allow researchers and developers to customize and use the FDA’s newly created MyStudies app. The FDA MyStudies App is designed to facilitate the input of real world data directly by patients which can be linked to electronic health data supporting traditional clinical trials, pragmatic trials, observational studies and registries. It was developed by the FDA and private sector partners, but open source code and technical documentation are being released to the public, so the app and patient data storage system can be reconfigured by organizations conducting clinical research. The app bore the FDA brand while its functionality was tested in a pilot study, but it can now be rebranded by researchers and developers who would like to customize and rebrand the app.

The FDA MyStudies App has several important features, including:

The data storage environment is secure and supports auditing necessary for compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and the Federal Information Security Management Act, so it can be used for trials under Investigational New Drug oversight.
The app is configurable for different therapeutic areas, and health outcomes, which reduces software development hurdles for non-FDA users.
The data storage environment is partitioned to support multi-site trials or “distributed database” studies.
The code for MyStudies will be open source so software developers can improve upon its capabilities.

Open source code is being released for two versions of the app. One is built on Apple’s ResearchKit (iOS) framework, and the other is built on the open source ResearchStack framework, which runs on Google’s Android. (The original FDA-branded app is not currently in app stores because it was removed after being tested in a pilot study.)

The In-Person Event Handbook
getting your open source project ready for new contributors

It seems like every day there’s another workshop, hackathon or sprint, where open source projects are invited to work with new contributors. At OpenHatch, we’ve run plenty of these events ourselves! We’ve found that to get the most out of an event, it’s important to plan ahead. Explaining your goals, identifying appropriate tasks, and testing your project setup, are all vital to making good progress - and having a good time. These changes have greatly improved our experiences, and we think they’re worth the (significant) effort.

We’ve created the following guide to help open source projects get ready for events. We’ve used our own project - the web app - as an example below. At the bottom of the page, you can find Checklists. These condense the advice given in this handbook, and can help you track your progress as you prepare your project.

About Freeseer — Freeseer 3.0.0 documentation
Freeseer (pronounced free-see-ar) is a free, open source, cross-platform application that captures or streams your desktop. It’s designed for capturing presentations, and has been succesfully used at many open source conferences to record hundreds of talks (which can be seen at Though designed for capturing presentations, it can also be used to capture demos, training materials, lectures, and other videos.

Freeseer is written in Python, uses Qt4 for its GUI, and Gstreamer for video/audio processing. Freeseer is based on open standards and supports royalty free audio and video codecs.

Freeseer can be used by everyone but is aimed at organizations and personalities who are actively involved in conferences or events and have to record many presentations and talks in a short period of time.

Freeseer will be most useful for:

Presenters who want to record their own talks using a simple application that has virtually no learning curve, and covers all their basic needs.

Conference Staff who want easier ways to manage the recording of talks, and record talks with top audio and video quality.

Instructors like professors, bloggers, or consultants who want an easy way to record their lectures, tutorials, or training material to later share with others.

What, because they take your money? Because they’re so big? Because so many people use it and like it? Because it works well? Because it would make Yahoo! look bad? Go ahead, give me some more reasons. Flickr allows you great ability to export all your data. Get used to using it regularly.

Publish your computer code: it is good enough : Nature News
I am a professional software engineer and I want to share a trade secret with scientists: most professional computer software isn't very good. The code inside your laptop, television, phone or car is often badly documented, inconsistent and poorly tested.

Why does this matter to science? Because to turn raw data into published research papers often requires a little programming, which means that most scientists write software. And you scientists generally think the code you write is poor. It doesn't contain good comments, have sensible variable names or proper indentation. It breaks if you introduce badly formatted data, and you need to edit the output by hand to get the columns to line up. It includes a routine written by a graduate student which you never completely understood, and so on. Sound familiar? Well, those things don't matter.

Simplenlg package
Simplenlg is a simple Java class library which does basic NLG lexicalisation and realisation; it is primarily designed for data-to-text applications. I hope to gradually build up its functionality over time.

The package currently includes

* Lexicon/morphology system: The default lexicon computes inflected forms (morphological realisation). We believe this has quite good coverage. Morphology in simplenlg V3 is partially based on the rule in the Sussex morphg system. Morphology in simplenlg V4 can is based on a modified version of the NIH Specialist Lexicon.
* Realiser: Generates texts from a syntactic form. Grammatical coverage is very limited compared to tools such as KPML and FUF/SURGE, but we believe it is adequate for many NLG tasks.
* Microplanning: Currently just simple aggregation, hopefully will grow over time.

Quickly helps you create software programs (and other things) quickly. You can select from a set of application templates and use some simple quickly commands to create, edit code and GUI, and publish your software for others to use. Quickly's templates are easy to write. So if you are a fan of language foo, you can create a foo-project template. Or if you want to help people making plugins for your killer app, you can make a killer-app-plugin template. You can even create a template for managing corporate documents, creating your awesome LaTeX helpers. The sky is the limit!

Welcome to OpenTM2 - Open Source Project Enterprise Level Translation Workbench Tool

TM stands for TranslationManager/2. TM/2 originates from the IBM TranslationManager tool and has been made available to the open source community.

TranslationManager/2 is a computer-assisted translation system (CAT) that automates repetitive tasks, freeing the professional translator to attend to the finer points of translation that require the judgement of an expert. TranslationManager/2 helps accelerate turnaround time and save money in overall translation costs.
It does not only help you tackle the vast amount of translation needs efficiently, but also frees you from tedious routine work inherent to translation projects.

I’m writing a series of articles laying out the tools, tips, and techniques I’ve learned over the years I’ve spent helping to write Django’s docs.
