Today's topics include the founding of a new school for the next generation of developers, Autonomy files a counter-suit against HP, Microsoft is reportedly preparing a Lumia 550 Windows 10 Phone, and Samsung is rumored to be using a Qualcomm chip in its new smart phone.

Few in technology would disagree about the impact that Docker container technology is having on the world of software development. Yet how did the founders of Docker actually learn how to code? It's a question that the new Holberton School is aiming to answer.

The Holberton School is backed by $2 million in seed capital that was invested by, among others, Solomon Hykes, co-founder of Docker. The CEO and co-founder of the Holberton School is Julien Barbier, who went to school with Hykes and was also part of the founding team at Docker. The goal of the school is to help fill a need that is painfully apparent in the technology world—to produce more software engineers.

On Oct. 1, Autonomy founder Mike Lynch filed a counter-claim against HP for $150 million in damages over allegations of financial mismanagement the U.S. company made about his software company in 2011. This follows an April 2015 lawsuit filed by HP against Lynch, which accuses him of misrepresenting the capabilities and the business books of Autonomy.

Several sources within HP have told eWEEK that HP has never obtained anywhere near the value it expected to get when it bought Autonomy four years ago.

Microsoft is reportedly readying a low-priced Windows 10 smartphone, the Lumia 550, which will retail for about $120 and target users who want a well-equipped phone for a lower price than competing top-tier handsets. According to a story by VentureBeat, Microsoft could introduce the new device as well as other rumored smartphones at a press event scheduled for Oct. 6, when it is expected to unveil its Windows 10 Mobile OS.

Qualcomm's year got off to a rough start when reports spread that Samsung, the world's top Android smartphone vendor, was opting not to use the chip maker's Snapdragon 810 processor in its Galaxy S6 device because of concerns over overheating. However, Samsung—which used its own Exynos processors in the Galaxy S6—reportedly now will use Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 820 mobile systems-on-a-chip in the Galaxy S7, which is expected to launch next year in the United States and China.
