Flocking to Kraków
In less than five days, the fourth annual Flock conference will take place in Kraków, Poland. This is Fedora’s premier contributor event each year, alternately taking place in North America and Europe. Attendance is completely free for anyone at all, so if you happen to be in the area (maybe hanging around after World Youth Day going on right now), you should certainly stop in!
5 great linux.conf.au talks (that aren't about Linux)
linux.conf.au, otherwise known as LCA, is one of the world's longest-running open source events. LCA has been held in a different city around Australia and New Zealand almost every year since 1999. Despite the name, linux.conf.au is a generalist open source conference. LCA hasn't been just about Linux for a long time. Rather, the conference focuses on everything to do with open source: the software, hardware, and network protocols that underly it. LCA also has a strong track on free and open culture, exploring how open source interacts with science, government, and the law.

Continuous Updating Tool VersionEye Now Open Source
The tool is integrated with GitHub, Bitbucket, and Stash to search for outdated dependencies in projects written in Java, Ruby, Node.JS and other common programming languages with package managers.
OwnCloud split threatens the future of cloud computing's open source option
There really was a Dan Murphy. An indomitable, feisty spiritual son of Ireland who single-handedly disrupted the cosy 1960s world of recommended retail priced liquor in Australia.
With just a handful of stores, all in Melbourne, he was the Aldi of his day. Even though Murphy accounted for a small share of industry turnover, his aggressive price point forced giants to follow suit.
That's why the open source cloud storage system OwnCloud is so important. Offering cloud at a fraction of the cost of a proprietary service, it helps keep the major players honest.
So it's concerning OwnCloud has hit a major snag. In the lingo of the open source world, it's forked.
Open source Flynn takes the headaches out of app deployment
The best part about open source for application delivery is the sheer breadth of tooling available to create and deploy apps. That's also the worst part.
Flynn, an open source platform-as-a-service now entering its 1.0 phase, deploys apps on an open source infrastructure without requiring the user to stitch together a disparate line of components to be useful.

The End of Gmane?
In 2002, I grew annoyed with not finding the obscure technical information I was looking for, so I started Gmane, the mailing list archive. All technical discussion took place on mailing lists those days, and archiving those were, at best, spotty and with horrible web interfaces.
The past few weeks, the Gmane machines (and more importantly, the company I work for, who are graciously hosting the servers) have been the target of a number of distributed denial of service attacks. Our upstream have been good about helping us filter out the DDoS traffic, but it’s meant serious downtime where we’ve been completely off the Internet.
Pwnie Express makes IoT, Android security arsenal open source
Pwnie Express has given the keys to software used to secure the Internet of Things (IoT) and Android software to the open-source community.
The Internet of Things (IoT), the emergence of devices ranging from lighting to fridges and embedded systems which are connected to the web, has paved an avenue for cyberattackers to exploit.
The Software Supply Chain Is Bedeviled by Bad Open-Source Code [Ed: again, trace this back to FUD firms like Sonatype in this case]
Open-source components play a key role in the software supply chain. By reducing the amount of code that development organizations need to write, open source enables companies to deliver software more efficiently — but not without significant risks, including defective and outdated components and security vulnerabilities.

Google tells Android's Linux kernel to toughen up and fight off those horrible hacker bullies
In a blog post, Jeff Vander Stoep of the mobile operating system's security team said that in the next build of the OS, named Nougat, Google is going to be addressing two key areas of the Linux kernel that reside at the heart of most of the world's smartphones: memory protection and reducing areas available for attack by hackers.
Linux and other open source software have been in the news quite a bit lately. As more and more people are seeing, closed source is not the only way to make money. A company like Red Hat, for instance, is able to be profitable while focusing its business on open source.
Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux-based operating systems, and it is not hard to see why. Not only is it easy to use and adaptable to much hardware (such as SoC boards), but there is a ton of free support online from the Ubuntu user community too. Today, Canonical announces a special Ubuntu Core image for the uCRobotics Bubblegum-96 board.
The Budgie desktop -- and thus Solus itself -- lacks the glitz and glitter found in more seasoned desktop environments. Animation is nonexistent. It also lacks any right-click menu finesse other than the ability to change background or settings.
The Solus Project's distro is very user-friendly, but experienced Linux users will need more optimized software and desktop functionality in the next release to be tempted to give up more advanced desktop flavors.
