    A data visualization and analytics component, especially well-suited for large and/or streaming datasets.

    Man the a16z marketing machine is working hard unfortunately at cost of quality.

    For those interested in FS and open source today, especially with a capital markets lens check out:

    Lots of great projects, one I used recently and a favourite was this:

  • godbledger

    Accounting Software with GRPC endpoints and SQL Backends

    This has also been my opinion for the accounting industry. Just like c compilers before gcc were proprietary and poor performing the accounting software that exists has many limitations. That means there is a huge opportunity for an open source system to blow them out of the water.

    Ive been building one myself but i know there are many more coming for this industry :)

  • Sonar

    Write Clean C++ Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean C++ code every time. With over 550 unique rules to find C++ bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • TablaM

    The practical relational programing language for data-oriented applications

    I relate to this. Is not just a lot of vendors, is that the kind of software stack that is optimal for MOST enterprises/companies get out of fashion in the dev community and is replaced with a lot of moving gears. This is how many devs think JS/html are good for UIs or NoSql + micro-services are ok.

    What is this stack? A single, strong, RDBMS and a lang/environment like FoxPro/dBase and equivalents. For reasons, this stack was killed (intentionally?) by their own owners and replaced by a lot of moving parts.

    That is why for deploy something you need dozen of things!


    I think the time is ripped for a return to this kind of stack. I'm betting a little on it at, if wanna check a small part of the puzzle.
