LXer: It’s Dr. Data

Wednesday 11th of March 2015 09:46:55 PM
A tall man with deep-set eyes and a close-cropped beard, Mr. Hammerbacher stood recently in front of a white board filled with an amalgam of computer and genetic code, speaking of “Linux clusters” and “gnarly C code” — standard terms in the language of computing — but the main subject was biomedical science. Mr. Hammerbacher also discussed “neoantigens” and “gene variants,” and the data-driven hunt to find and understand the rogue cell clusters of cancer.

LXer: Zynq-based SBC runs Linux, offers FPGA-based I/O

Reddit: Is it possible to use all "common" Linux functions on an Android device?

Wednesday 11th of March 2015 01:38:19 PM

Hi, I am not sure if I have to ask this in /r/raspberrypi or /r/android so maybe this is the best neutral place. I have set up a Raspberry PI and I want to create a camera for my motorcycle (GoPro style). I know it's possible and that I can program the Raspberry as I want, but I was wondering if there is a more compact alternative and also cheap. Raspberry(35Euro)+SD Card(20 Euro)+USB camera(10 Euro)+Powercable(15 Euro)+External Battery(30 Euro)=100Euro~ Android devices can be found for the same price or a little more, but are much more compact in size. Could I used it just like a RPI? Or is Android much different than normal Linux distributions?

Jessie Release Date: 2015-04-25

We now have a target release date of Saturday the 25th of April. We have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 8 - "Jessie". The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend. Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before then. Read more

I hope these questions will help you determine whether open source is a good fit for your next software project. Let me know if there are other questions you would add to this list. Read more
