10 Baby Names for Software Developers
This list started as a joke I made to my sister when she was pregnant with her baby boy. We were both taking a summer term CS class at BYU. I told her, “How funny would it be if you named your baby Jason but spelled it JSON!” Thus the beginning of the list of baby names for developers.
JSON: A text format that uses a specific syntax to represent data objects. These objects are made up of key-value pairs, which are separated by commas and surrounded by curly braces.
Ruby: An object-oriented language that supports features such as dynamic typing, garbage collection, and reflection. It has a syntax that is easy to read and write, which makes it popular among programmers who value code readability and elegance.
Alloc: Short for ‘allocation’ which is referring to memory allocation (might be a stretch). Memory allocation is a fundamental concept in computer science that refers to the process of reserving and assigning a portion of a computer's memory to a specific program or application.
Julia: A dynamically-typed language that combines features of both dynamic scripting languages, like Python and Ruby, and compiled languages, like C and Fortran. It has a syntax that is similar to MATLAB or Python, which makes it easy to learn for users of those languages.
Kali: A specialized Linux distribution that is designed for advanced penetration testing and ethical hacking. It includes a wide range of pre-installed tools and software packages for security testing, including network scanning, vulnerability analysis, password cracking, and more.
Jetty: A lightweight and scalable web server that is designed to be highly performant and reliable. It supports a wide range of Java-based web technologies, including Servlets, JavaServer Pages (JSP), Java WebSocket, and more.
Maven: A command-line tool that helps developers manage the build process for their Java-based projects. It automates the process of compiling, testing, packaging, and deploying Java code, as well as managing dependencies between different libraries and components.
Jenkins: A web-based application that runs on a server and is used to automate repetitive tasks in software development, such as building, testing, and deploying code. It is highly configurable and can be customized to work with a wide range of tools and technologies.
Gerrit: A web-based application that runs on a server and is used to manage code reviews and merges for Git repositories. It is designed to integrate seamlessly with the Git version control system and provides a range of features for managing the review process, such as reviewing and commenting on code changes, tracking changes over time, and managing access controls.
