Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge

Judges from the European Union’s second-highest court have rejected a €250 million ($300 million) tax bill lodged against Amazon in 2017 as part the bloc’s ongoing fight against US tech giants.

The case was one of a number spearheaded by Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, in which sweetheart tax deals given to powerful corporations have been framed as a form of illegal state subsidy. The most notable of these was a 2016 case in which Apple was ordered to pay Ireland €13 billion ($14.9 billion) in back taxes. This decision was annulled in 2020 by the same court involved in today’s ruling.

The Amazon case can be traced back to 2006, when the e-commerce giant established a labyrinthine tax structure in Europe...

Small API Gateway – 09-02-2021 06:53 – by Patrick Boens

OpenPMO is essentially API Services-based. For example, when a user wants to create a new Portfolio, an API request is launched, which is also the case when a new Aspiration is requested, or a new Sprint, or a new task within a sprint. Most of the requests are Ajax calls bearing some form of API request. All calls are served with separate logical endpoints, which ultimately turn to be a singular physical endpoint served by our hand-made API Gateway whose task is to check the validity of the request and to route the request to the appropriate handler. The code of the OpenPMO Small API Gateway is stored on GitHub and will be open to public access.

OpenPMO has used OpenPMO – 28-01-2021 17:56 – by Patrick Boens

The use of the product that we are building to guarantee ... its own construction is a way of putting on the shoes that we propose to make for others and therefore to feel the comfort or discomfort ourselves.

It is by going through the menu items, by visualizing the information, by trying to manipulate the product that we realize its strengths and weaknesses.

Eat your own dog food!

OpenPMO was used in the development of OpenPMO: we created a portfolio, included projects, assigned sprints to them, created tasks, used reports, ... to develop OpenPMO.

The first tests started on a very incomplete product after 8 days. Since then, we kept adding feature after feature, making OpenPMO more pleasant to use day after day.

At the time of this writing the product is far from being finished. Our goal is to officially open the site on 01/06/2021 at noon.

STAY TUNED
