Fritzing Fritzing
This is why everyone's Arduino diagrams look the same: Because they're drawn with this application, which presumably set the standard; or with other tools which imitate the look, e.g. TinkerCAD. A quote from the website compels me to use Fritzing for the purpose, as a point of honor:

Fritzing is an open-source hardware initiative that makes electronics accessible as a creative material for anyone. We offer a software tool, a community website and services in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, fostering a creative ecosystem that allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and layout and manufacture professional pcbs.

But then there's this, in the forums:

The unfortunate truth is that Fritzing is dying. It started as a funded research project which is how it got this far. When the grants ran out it went open source but the support hasn’t been there to keep it living and the developers have (presumably) moved on to other funded projects. There is a project to move it to javascript in its early stages but development on the current implementation of Fritzing has pretty much died (the javascript project is seen as the only way forward). I’m poking at bug fixing, but its a large, largely poorly documented project and even getting a development environment running has been difficult.

So crap.

Bootstrap: You’re Doing It Wrong | H. Alan Stevens
Alan Stevens argues that some criticisms of Bootstrap originate in misunderstandings, with caveats that there are no substitutes for knowing CSS and reading substantial documentation.
One comment in particular takes Stevens to task for alluding to certain frustrations, or for possibly misunderstanding some things, with a sustained blast of semi-coherent sarcasm: the puddle also calls forth the abyss, apparently.

From Wikipedia: "AngularJS (commonly referred to as "Angular.js" or "AngularJS 1.X") is a JavaScript-based open-source front-end web application framework mainly maintained by Google and by a community of individuals and corporations to address many of the challenges encountered in developing single-page applications. The JavaScript components complement Apache Cordova, the framework used for developing cross-platform mobile apps. It aims to simplify both the development and the testing of such applications by providing a framework for client-side model–view–controller (MVC) and model–view–viewmodel (MVVM) architectures, along with components commonly used in rich Internet applications. In 2014, the original AngularJS team began working on Angular (Application Platform)."
Based on Bootstrap, which is in turn based on jQuery.

6 Open Source Test Automation Frameworks You Need to Know - Automation Testing Made Easy
"However, I’ve seen some teams take it to the extreme by building their own, elaborate automation framework from scratch. This drives me crazy, because they could have easily made use of existing open-source tools and libraries that would have met their needs without writing any code — in most cases with better results."
Yup. Taste the bitterness of my tears.

The Architecture of Open Source Applications: Selenium WebDriver
"At a very high level, Selenium is a suite of three tools. The first of these tools, Selenium IDE, is an extension for Firefox that allows users to record and playback tests. The record/playback paradigm can be limiting and isn't suitable for many users, so the second tool in the suite, Selenium WebDriver, provides APIs in a variety of languages to allow for more control and the application of standard software development practices. The final tool, Selenium Grid, makes it possible to use the Selenium APIs to control browser instances distributed over a grid of machines, allowing more tests to run in parallel. Within the project, they are referred to as "IDE", "WebDriver" and "Grid". This chapter explores the architecture of Selenium WebDriver.
"This chapter was written during the betas of Selenium 2.0 in late 2010. If you're reading the book after then, then things will have moved forward, and you'll be able to see how the architectural choices described here have unfolded."

Given that caveat, a good overview of Selenium tools, along with more detailed discussion of architecture. This is core contributor Simon Stewart's chapter of "The Architecture of Open Source Applications: Elegance, Evolutions, and a Few Fearless Hacks." Per Shawn Knight, responding to a LinkedIn Selenium Test Automation User Group question.

Apache log4net – Apache log4net: Home - Apache log4net
"The Apache log4net library is a tool to help the programmer output log statements to a variety of output targets. log4net is a port of the excellent Apache log4j™ framework to the Microsoft® .NET runtime. We have kept the framework similar in spirit to the original log4j while taking advantage of new features in the .NET runtime."

My admittedly limited experience with in-house solutions puts me solidly in Eric Raymond's camp of open source advocacy: Something that's been exposed to many thousands of demanding users is likely to be a far superior tool. AND you don't have to argue fine points of superiority with management to justify a few dollars of expense.
