JR wrote to us to share his open hardware project: pedalSHIELD. It's a great example of open hardware + open source software + open instructions and tutorials. Share your story with Opensource.com.There are a good number of nice programmable DIY guitar pedals out there. So, the pedalSHIELD is nothing new, except for the fact that I think we've strived harder than the rest to keep the project open, simple, supported, and affordable. The idea was to design a platform for Arduino users to learn about digital signal processing, effects, and synthesizers—also to experiment without a deep knowledge in electronics or programming.
Today we are pleased to announce the beta 2 release of Black Lab Linux 5. This will be the last Beta for Black Lab Linux 5 until the final release. While it contains all the functionality that will be released in the gold release in May, right now we are working on stability. With that, lets go over what has changed with Black Lab Linux 5.

Due to the purely open nature of the platform, major IT vendors including Red Hat, Rackspace, IBM and HP are betting on its future, actively contributing to OpenStack development. In OpenStack, there are two different interfaces […]Continue reading...The post How to manage VMs with OpenStack command line tools appeared first on Xmodulo.Related FAQs:How to install OpenStack on multiple nodesHow to enable logging in OpenStack via devstackHow to change IP address after OpenStack installation via devstackHow to use KVM from the command line on Debian or UbuntuHow to access Dropbox from the command line in Linux
Are you new to Arduino? Open hardware like the Arduino Starter Pack from Adafruit is a great way to start tinkering with this small computer board. It is the ideal kit for beginners to open hardware or anyone looking to start a project using the Arduino microcontroller.To start, you need a computer from which you will write the code that will run in the Arduino board. This starter pack comes with an Arduino Uno board, which is likely the simplest. The typical programming cycle is to first write your code on the computer, then upload it to the Arduino board via a standard USB cable. The Arduino softwareis available for Linux, Mac, and Windows.
