The Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Project, an open source blockchain working group, announced that it has received code contributions from across its 30 founding members, which will be reviewed by its newly-formed technical steering committee.
The Hyperledger brand was donated to the Linux Foundation's blockchain initiative by Blythe Masters' Digital Asset Holdings. Technical contributions have also come from the likes of IBM, Blockstream and Ripple. The founder members include technology providers such as ConsenSys, Credits, Guardtime, Symbiont and R3CEV, the consortium shared ledger standards group with 42 banks backing it.
I have started Tunir on Jan 12 2015, means it got more than one year of development history. At the beginning it was just a project to help me out with Fedora Cloud image testing. But it grew to a point where it is being used as the Autocloud backend to test Fedora Cloud, and Vagrant images. We will soon start testing the Fedora AMI(s) too using the same. Within this one year, there were total 7 contributors to the project. In total we are around 1k lines of Python code. I am personally using Tunir for various other projects too. One funny thing from the code commits timings, no commit on Sundays
Now that Rubin had shepherded smartphones from concept to phenomenon, they no longer held much interest. As an engineering problem, they had been solved. Sure, entrepreneurs kept launching new apps, but for someone who considered engineering an art, that was like adding a few brushstrokes atop layers of dried paint. Rubin wanted to touch canvas again—and he could see a fresh one unfurling in front of him.
If there is one word that often percolates conversations hailing the benefits of open source, it is choice. We often celebrate many of the 800+ Linux distributions, the countless desktops, applications, frameworks, and more. Choice, it would seem, is a good thing.
Interestingly, choice is also an emotive thing.
"You know, with windows versus Linux, Windows got there first by a long shot. It was the entrenched party. So Linux is the scrappy upstart. In the case of robotics, open source got there first. The community grew up doing things the open source way. There was actually a period in the mid-2000s where Microsoft put a lot of effort into its Windows-based Robotics Developer Studio. It had really good features, but it's never taken off. So yeah, I think robotics are proving to be a different situation than what happened with personal computing."
Long live Linux. Long live ROS. Long live open source.
Today at InterWorx, I write software for Linux for web hosting companies. I got my RHCSA last year, and I'm currently studying for the RHCE. I'd love to say that I got into open source and Linux for philosophical reasons, but to be honest it was just because it let me get stuff done. If it wasn't for Linux and other open source software, I never would have been able to fix that problem all those years ago. With that one opportunity (and a lot of work!), I was able to start a path to a whole new career.
In our next session Sergio Schvezov is going to talk about what’s new in Snapcraft and the changes in the 2.x series. Be there and you are going to be up-to-date on how to publish your software on Snappy Ubuntu Core. There will be time for questions afterwards.
While Canonical employees are working hard these days on the enablement of the Ubuntu Tablet device, it looks like we're getting the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system on the Fairphone 2 smartphone.
How did that happen? Well, you might have heard of Marius Gripsgård, the skilled developer who managed to port Ubuntu for Phones on the OnePlus One smartphone, right? Sure you did, and today we're informing you that he is currently working on porting Ubuntu Touch to Fairphone 2.
This article discusses some of the interactive command line interface (CLI) tools that are provided with or which can be easily installed on Red Hat related distributions including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS, and other derivative distributions. Although there are GUI tools available and they offer good information, the CLI tools provide all of the same information and they are always usable because many servers do not have a GUI interface but all Linux systems have a command line interface.
This article concentrates on the tools that I typically use. If I did not cover your favorite tool, please forgive me and let us all know what tools you use and why in the comments section.
It has been a while since hearing much anything about HP's "The Machine" computing architecture and its associated Linux++ project, but that changed this past week.
While we're still waiting to see if HP's The Machine prototype will be delivered this year, Keith Packard who has been working at the project spoke about it at this year's Linux.Conf.Au 2016 event. In fact, it was sadly just one of a few sessions from this year's LCA2016 that I found really interesting.
With the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel PPA still not enabling the experimental AMDGPU PowerPlay or CIK (Sea Islands / GCN 1.1) support in their kernel builds (although they basically are both off by default at runtime), here is my spin of the newly-released Linux 4.5-rc3 kernel with these features turned on.
Android, unlike other operating systems, can power everything from the most humble of devices to the most expensive, powerful tablets on the market. Knowing this – and knowing that the Amazon Fire is a pretty decent tablet, though locked outside of the Google Play Services ecosystem – we decided to look into what other offerings there are on the market for really, really cheap Android tablets.
We've said a few times now that Google's virtual reality initiative is too big for the company to just be working on Google Cardboard, and now the Financial Times has published a report detailing what seems to be the next phase of Google's VR push. The report says that Google is working on "a successor to Cardboard," creating a higher-quality headset and building VR software directly into Android.
Glide, an Israeli-developed video messaging app that is one of the most popular of its type in the world, is coming to Android Wear watches – with users now able to see and hear video messages on their watches almost in real time.
