  • Effective Microservices Architecture with Event-Driven Design

    There’s no doubt, in the IT world, microservices are sexy. But just because you find something cool and attractive doesn’t mean it’s good for you. And it doesn’t mean you know how to use it properly.

  • Tumbleweed Review of the week 2017/25

    With the pace of Tumbleweed having resumed to ‘almost daily snapshots’ I will to the review again weekly instead of bi-weekly. It’s just easier to remember what big updates came in like this. This week I will cover the 6 snapshots 0616,0617,0618,0619,0620 and 0622 (again, 0622 just passed openQA and you will get it shortly on the mirror). There was also a 0621 tested, but discarded by openQA.

  • MinnowBoard 3 will offer Apollo Lake, triple M.2s, and Raspberry Pi expansion

    Minnowboard.org is prepping an open spec “MinnowBoard 3” SBC with a quad-core Apollo Lake, 4GB LPDDR4, 8GB eMMC, 3x M.2 sockets, and an RPi connector.

    The Intel-backed Minnowboard.org project has posted preliminary specs for an open-spec MinnowBoard 3 model to follow the recently shipped MinnowBoard Turbo Quad. Due to ship in the fall, the community-backed MinnowBoard 3 stands out with a 14nm Apollo Lake Atom, three M.2 sockets, and an “RPI” adapter. The only RPI we know of is Raspberry Pi, or more specifically, its much copied 40-pin expansion connector.

  • Open source social robot kit runs on Raspberry Pi and Arduino

    Thecorpora’s Scratch-ready “Q.bo One” robot is based on the RPi 3 and Arduino, and offers stereo cams, mics, a speaker, and visual and language recognition.

    In 2010, robotics developer Francisco Paz and his Barcelona-based Thecorpora startup introduced the first Qbo “Cue-be-oh” robot as an open source proof-of-concept and research project for exploring AI capabilities in multi-sensory, interactive robots. Now, after a preview in February at Mobile World Congress, Thecorpora has gone to Indiegogo to launch the first mass produced version of the social robot in partnership with Arrow.

  • My Kid Will Never Hack Linux

    And we need to adapt our thinking accordingly: we don't need free and open source software and copyleft so that the next generation can hack the Linux kernel; we need it so they can hack a flying car.

  • Linux Is Everywhere (The Shirt)
  • I made a T-Shirt called "Linux Is Everywhere", Thoughts?

    This shirt is to celebrate the proliferation of Linux throughout the computing world. Linux is so widely spread that it is very likely everyone uses it everyday, whether they know it or not. Linux powers about 80% of the Internet, 100% of Android devices (phones and tablets), 100% of Chromebooks, Chromecasts, Roku, and so much more.

  • [Older] Best Linux Distros for Developers

    One of the common questions I get asked is "which Linux distro is best for developers?" The short answer is that it depends. The long answer takes the form of this article. This piece will dive into the different Linux distros favored by developers. It'll also provide some insight as to why there is no automatic (simple) answer for why one developer chooses one distro over another.

    To provide a more accurate look at this entire situation, I’ll provide a break down of each consideration a developer might use to make their Linux distro selection. As you read please note: one must first start off with the right development applications, without these selecting a distro is meaningless.

    Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

    It’s said that time flies when one is busy – so what does that mean in the context of Tumbleweed? We must be skipping entire periods. The last two weeks have seen 10 snapshots being published, which is a clear indication that our community IS busy bringing you all the nice updates you wish for. I will cover the snapshots 0602, 0604, 0605, 0607, 0608, 0609, 0610, 0612, 0613 and 0615. 0615 passed openQA and is currently in progress of syncing out, mirrors should deliver it shortly.

  • Teaching Linux more than 1K students in 2017

    Thanks to the Fedora and GNOME project, I was able to learn what Linux means, both, technically and philosophically. I was prepared for system administration by the Linux Foundation and throughout the years I got Linux experiences and dirty hands in companies such as GMD and IBM to finally get my Red Hat Certificate. Nowadays, thanks to BacktracAcademy I teach online for free, more than 841 students around the world!

  • Tumbleweed Snapshots Pick Up Pace

    The care and thoroughness of making GNU Compiler Collection 7 the default compiler for openSUSE Tumbleweed produced a gradual decrease in snapshots over the past month, but it looks like snapshots of the rolling release are beginning to pick up the pace.

    The four snapshots released this week aligns much to closer to upstream development and releases of GNOME, KDE, QEMU and Mesa top the list of this week’s new packages in Tumbleweed.

  • Microsoft to shut down its Docs.com file-sharing site December 15

    Officials posted a notice of the planned end of service on June 9 on its Docs.com site. In that note, Microsoft attributed overlap between SlideShare, which is part of LinkedIn, and OneDrive with Docs.com as the reasons for the December 2017 closing. Microsoft bought LinkedIn last year.

    Microsoft is advising users to migrate and/or delete content they shared on Docs.com as soon as possible.

    In 2015, Microsoft revamped its Docs.com site to become a new "Internet destination" where users could publish for public consumption their Office documents, including Sways. Along with Sways, users can post Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Office Mix documents and/or collections that will be discoverable by search engines to the Docs.com site. Microsoft originally introduced Docs.com as part of a collaboration with Facebook in 2010. Microsoft Docs was a project to try to get Facebook users to use Microsoft's Office Web Apps.

From Linux to Windows 10: Why did Munich switch and why does it matter?

Most notable is perhaps the French Gendarmerie, the country's police force, which has switched 70,000 PCs to Gendbuntu, a custom version of the Linux-based OS Ubuntu. In the same country 15 French ministries have made the switch to using LibreOffice, as has the Dutch Ministry of Defence, while the Italian Ministry of Defence will switch more than 100,000 desktops from Microsoft Office to LibreOffice by 2020 and 25,000 PCs at hospitals in Copenhagen will move from Office to LibreOffice. Matthias Kirschner, president of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE), says this list continues to grow, and that "almost every two weeks you have a new example of free software being used in a public administration".

Canonical Needs Your Help to Figure Out a Direction for Ubuntu's Mir/Wayland

That's right, Canonical still has a team of developers working on the Mir display server, despite the Unity 8 development being dropped, and it looks like it's going into a different direction this time. The latest work by done Mir's devs involves basic Wayland support implementation, including mouse and keyboard inputs. Their Wayland Conformance Suite (wlcs) implementation also allow client to connect to the server, as well as to create windows and draw into them, but there's a lot of work to be done before they achieve full Wayland support for Mir, which involves adding essential functions like copy and paste or drag and drop.

openSUSE Tumbleweed Operating System Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.14 LTS

Linux kernel 4.14 LTS is the latest and greatest kernel for GNU/Linux distributions, and now that it's ready for mass deployments, it will arrive in the software repositories of more distros, and Tumbleweed users are among the first to get it as OpenSuSE Project's Douglas DeMaio reports today. "The past week brought new features to openSUSE Tumbleweed with a snapshot that included Linux kernel 4.14," said DeMaio. "New features like HDMI Consumer Electronics Control support for Raspberry Pi and the merging of Heterogeneous Memory Management to the mainline this long-term support kernel are promising." Read more
