Reddit: How often is Linux really used in Linux-related jobs?

Saturday 1st of April 2017 06:51:47 PM

Before I go on, I should probably make it clear that I am actually employed as an MPE/iX developer (an entirely different OS). According to the job description, there was no mention of Windows and Linux experience was simply "a plus".

Long story short, my employer got upset because I was doing my development work through Linux rather than Windows. He claims it's because everyone else in this company uses Windows and that most corporations do Linux development through Windows terminals. This is only my second Linux job (first one didn't mind at all) and needless to say, I'm not sure what the real world looks like.

For those of you with Linux-related jobs:

  1. How much of it really involves Linux (and not Windows)?

  2. (Workstations) Can you pick your own distribution?

  3. (Servers) When new systems are being deployed, do you have any influence on which distribution will be installed?

  4. Are you able to do your work with a Linux-based development machine at least?

Reddit: What can you actually do with Linux?

Saturday 1st of April 2017 06:17:10 PM

I always hear everyone saying "you get control of your computer back" and "you're free from corporate agendas" and whatnot but I don't really see many specific examples of what linux offers for the average desktop user that Windows doesn't.

Top 4 CDN services for hosting open source libraries

A CDN, or content delivery network, is a network of strategically placed servers located around the world used for the purpose of delivering files faster to users. A traditional CDN will allow you to accelerate your website's images, CSS files, JS files, and any other piece of static content. This allows website owners to accelerate all of their own content as well as provide them with additional features and configuration options. These premium services typically require payment based on the amount of bandwidth a project uses. Read more

  • Top 4 CDN services for hosting open source libraries
    A CDN, or content delivery network, is a network of strategically placed servers located around the world used for the purpose of delivering files faster to users. A traditional CDN will allow you to accelerate your website's images, CSS files, JS files, and any other piece of static content. This allows website owners to accelerate all of their own content as well as provide them with additional features and configuration options. These premium services typically require payment based on the amount of bandwidth a project uses. However, if your project doesn't justify the cost of implementing a traditional CDN, the use of an open source CDN may be more suitable. Typically, these types of CDNs allow you to link to popular web-based libraries (CSS/JS frameworks, for example), which are then delivered to your web visitors from the free CDN's servers. Although CDN services for open source libraries do not allow you to upload your own content to their servers, they can help you accelerate libraries globally and improve your website's redundancy.
