  • Jumble Password – Create Unique IDs and Passwords on Linux

    Jumble Password is an electron-based utility app that you can use to create unique password combinations using your date of birth and name. It uses a random number permutation algorithm called the Fisher-Yates Shuffle Algorithm to jumble up sequences.

    A typical case scenario is if you want to create a password for a website project you’re working on. You can choose to enter random names or dates to get unique suggestions each time you hit the submit button.

  • Tableau adds in-memory data engine Hyper to Tableau 10.5, launches Tableau Server for Linux

    Tableau said its in-memory data engine, called Hyper, is generally available and will be included in Tableau 10.5. Hyper will be able to boost query speed by 5X and extract data and large data sets faster.

    With the move, Tableau gets into the database game. Typically, Tableau is extracting data from multiple data sets and joining them together.

    What Tableau is hoping to do is speed up time to insight and visualization. Tableau is also releasing Tableau Server on Linux and the ability to embed multiple visualizations in a single view with Viz in Tooltip.

  • Tableau’s data visualization platform now supports Linux, promises faster operations

    Tableau announced today that its new Hyper data engine is generally available to customers, providing a massive speed boost for existing processes through its business intelligence and analysis software.

  • GXml 0.16.0 Released

    GXml is a library for XML access and GObject serialization to XML, with a W3C DOM4 API implementation.

  • Vala Warnings output Improvements

    As for resent release of Vala 0.39.4, there are huge improvements if we talk about warnings output at Vala code and C code compilation level.

    One of the argument against Vala, has been the number of warnings you get for a valid Vala code at C level compilation. As an example you can check warnings for GXml in March 2017 about 230, some were my fault but other at C level.

Raspberry Pi Alternatives

The phenomenon behind the Raspberry Pi computer series has been pretty amazing. It's obvious why it has become so popular for Linux projects—it's a low-cost computer that's actually quite capable for the price, and the GPIO pins allow you to use it in a number of electronics projects such that it starts to cross over into Arduino territory in some cases. Its overall popularity has spawned many different add-ons and accessories, not to mention step-by-step guides on how to use the platform. I've personally written about Raspberry Pis often in this space, and in my own home, I use one to control a beer fermentation fridge, one as my media PC, one to control my 3D printer and one as a handheld gaming device.
