ClickHouse has rapidly rivaled other open source databases in active contributors

Lawrence Hecht:

ClickHouse has come out of seemingly nowhere to rival Elasticsearch as the database-related open source software project with the most active contributors…

ClickHouse is column-oriented and allows for analytics reports to be generated using SQL queries in real-time. ClickHouse’s rise in popularity began in 2016, which happens to be when Apache Spark’s peak.

I first heard of ClickHouse last year when I learned that our friends at Plausible use it for their analytics backend (teamed with Postgres for relational data).

Few testers have programming skills

Some interesting analysis by Lawrence Hecht for The New Stack:

The 2020 version of JetBrains’ State of the Developer Ecosystem does quantify the extent to which this specialty has disappeared. One finding is that 43% of teams or projects have less than one tester or QA engineer per 10 developers. This is not necessarily a problem if most testing is automated, but that is only true among 38% of those surveyed.

38% is far too low a percentage of folks doing automated testing.
