FLOSS Weekly 416: FreeDOS  

Jim has been involved in free software / open source software since 1993, when he was still an undergraduate physics student. His first experience was with GNU Emacs, and later he contributed a few patches for GNU Emacs on Apollo/DOMAIN. In 1994, Jim created the FreeDOS Project, and wrote many of the early FreeDOS utilities, extensions, and libraries - including the Cats/Kitten library that provides international language support for many FreeDOS programs. (Cats is short for the Unix Catgets library, and Kitten is an even smaller version of Cats. Get it?)

Jim also contributes to other free and open source software projects. More recently, Jim works with the GNOME Foundation on usability testing. He has mentored several cycles of GNOME usability testing for Outreachy (formerly the Outreach Program for Women) and also teaches "CSCI 4609 Processes, Programming, and Languages: Usability of Open Source Software" at the University of Minnesota Morris. Jim also writes about the usability of open source software on his blog.

FLOSS Weekly 415: Coala  

Coala allows you to simply check your code against certain quality requirements. The checking routines are named Bears in Coala. You can easily define a simple project file to check your project with all bears either shipped with Coala or ones you found on the internet and trust.

If you are not satisfied with the functionality given by the bears we provide, you can easily write your own bears. Coala is written with the easiness of extension in mind. That means no big boilerplate, just write one small object with one routine, add the parameters you like and see how Coala automates the organization of settings, user interaction, and execution parallelization. You shouldn't need to care about anything else than just writing your algorithm!
