Enterprise GitHub projects of the week: VR Data Center Experience, Jasper, and CodeSV

Open Source is everywhere, and quickly becoming the new norm for how companies approach software development. We take at a look at some of the Open Source projects on GitHub created by Facebook that can help make life easier for IT teams in organisations.


VR Data Center Experience by VMware

Find it at: https://github.com/vmware/vr-dc-ex

What it does: VR Data Center Experience allows you immersive virtual management of your vSphere Environment via a virtual reality headset and the wave of a hand or click of a button.

Why is it useful: Use a HTC Vive headset to enter a virtual data center where you can see a virtual representation of each of your hosts. You are able to teleport to each host and interact with the VMs, get information about their configuration or remove them from your data center.

Jasper Project

Find it at: https://github.com/jasperproject/

What it does: Jasper is an open source platform for developing always-on, voice-controlled applications.

Why is it useful: Designed for the Raspberry Pi, Jasper enables you to create your own voice assistant that you can customize to your own needs. Includes a simple API for developers to create their own voice-controlled modules. Current modules available include Calendars, Weather, WolframAlpha, Wikipedia, and Yelp.




CodeSV by CA

Find it at: https://github.com/CA-DevTest/CodeSV

What it does: CodeSV is a free, lightweight way for developers to define virtual services within their Java IDE.

Why is it useful: It provides a simple fluent API enabling you to easily define and setup virtual services directly in your unit testing code. The services run in-process, without the need to install a workstation, server, or container of any sort, allowing developers to configure web service responses rapidly within their IDEs. Boost productivity by simulating services that code depends on – especially when those services don't exist or are expensive to use – and test edge cases and negative scenarios that are hard to reproduce with different services.
