Attendees at LinuxCon and CloudOpen Europe wore Ada Lovelace Day pins to celebrate women in technology on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014.
Over the last decade, virtualization has drastically transformed the way software and services are provisioned and delivered. Coupled with open source hypervisors like Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), these technologies have given way to amazing innovations in cloud computing, storage and more. The introduction of container technologies like Docker are also surfacing new opportunities as well as introducing new complexities, like any new technology.
Jono Bacon, senior director of community at XPRIZE, challenged open source managers and developers to set “bold and audacious” goals, using their knowledge of community to innovate on a grand scale.
“We're really serious about getting engaged with the open source community and gaining more visibility,” said Chris Schlaeger, director of kernel and operating systems at Amazon Web Services in his keynote talk at LinuxCon and CloudOpen Europe today in Dusseldorf.
LinuxCon, CloudOpen and Embedded Linux Conference Europe was underway Oct. 13-15, 2014, in Dusseldorf, Germany.
A few months ago, I met Chris Anderson and Andy Jensen, CEO and COO of 3D Robotics, one of the leading manufacturers of commercial drones. They were interested in creating a software foundation for their open source drone projects and wanted to pattern it after the Linux Foundation. We quickly realized we could provide the collaborative and participatory infrastructure needed to advance the ecosystem, and Dronecode was born. The potential for drones to have an impact on our lives is just now hitting the mainstream. While makers and hobbyists have been in from the ground floor, applications such as search and rescue, agriculture, mapping and surveying, photography and film and ecological study have real potential to save lives, save money and improve efficiency. Chris was on the forefront of this movement with his bestselling book Makers: The New Industrial Revolution and his creation of DIYdrones.com. Today we launch Dronecode with industry leaders who are shaping the coming Drone revolution. Joining 3D Robotics as founding members of Dronecode are BaiDu, Box, DroneDeploy, Intel, jDrones, Laser Navigation, Qualcomm, SkyWard, Squadrone System, Walkera and Yuneec. The Dronecode story is very unique, with three impressive elements: Today more than 1,200 developers are working on Dronecode projects with more than 150 code commits a day on some projects. The code forms the basis of many of the...

Unleash your creativity with Scribus, a great Linux desktop publishing program for creating brochures, business cards, invitations, newsletters, and pretty much any kind of printed document you want.
John Linville is a principal engineer at Red Hat and the maintainer for wireless LANs in the Linux kernel. In this video he gives us a guided tour of his home office, including his Fedora and RHEL workstations, his collection of vintage hardware, and a few retro computing projects underway.
Over at the Fedora Project, we recently released the alpha version of Fedora 21. Right now, the most visible thing you'll see is a split into three separate deliverables – Fedora Workstation, Fedora Cloud, and Fedora Server.
GitHub last month reported that the number of government employees using the code sharing platform had tripled in the past year, to reach more than 10,000 users from 500 organizations. That same steep curve could be used to describe what's happening now in the enterprise as well, says Brian Doll, vice president of strategy at GitHub.
It is difficult to describe the joy of watching an object that you have designed being materialized in front of your eyes. Even more satisfying is watching it print on a machine you built yourself with open source hardware and control with open source software on Linux.
Linus Torvalds unleashed version 3.17 of the Linux kernel on Sunday and it's packed with improvements.
Spotify, aptly called the "Netflix for music," is yet another example of how Linux and open source enable businesses to serve millions of customers using state-of-the-art, shared technologies.
In this preview of his LinuxCon Europe keynote, senior director of community at XPRIZE Jono Bacon tells us his three essential features of a good community, how to go about building one, and the role of the community manager in facilitating it.
