  • 5 advantages of containers for writing applications

    Even Match.com could not have done a better job finding a mate for microservices. Microservices – single-function services built by small teams, independent from other functions, and communicating only through public interfaces – simply make a great match for containers. Microservices plus containers represent a shift to delivering applications through modular services that can be reused and rewired to perform new tasks.

  • How glib-rs works, part 3: Boxed types

    Let's say you are given a sealed cardboard box with something, but you can't know what's inside. You can just pass it on to someone else, or burn it. And since computers are magic duplication machines, you may want to copy the box and its contents... and maybe some day you will get around to opening it.

    That's a boxed type. You get a pointer to something, who knows what's inside. You can just pass it on to someone else, burn it — I mean, free it — or since computers are magic, copy the pointer and whatever it points to.

How To Get Started With The Ubuntu Linux Distro

The Linux operating system has evolved from a niche audience to widespread popularity since its creation in the mid 1990s, and with good reason. Once upon a time, that installation process was a challenge, even for those who had plenty of experience with such tasks. The modern day Linux, however, has come a very long way. To that end, the installation of most Linux distributions is about as easy as installing an application. If you can install Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop, you can install Linux. Here, we'll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Linux 17.04, which is widely considered one of the most user-friendly distributions.

Ubuntu systems have always lagged behind the development of the Mesa 3D Graphics Library, the Linux graphics stack containing open-source drivers for Intel, AMD Radeon, and Nvidia GPUs, but they usually catch up with it through a specially crafted PPA (Personal Package Archive) repository that can be easily installed by users.
