TuxMachines: An Aerospace Coder Drags a Stodgy Industry Toward Open Source

Monday 24th of April 2017 08:34:08 PM

More than a decade ago, software engineer Ryan Melton spent his evenings, after workdays at Ball Aerospace, trying to learn to use a 3-D modeling program. After a few weeks, for all his effort, he could make … rectangles that moved. Still, it was a good start. Melton showed his spinning digital shapes to Ball, a company that makes spacecraft and spacecraft parts, and got the go-ahead he’d been looking for: He could try to use the software to model a gimbal—the piece on a satellite that lets the satellite point.

Melton wanted to build the program to save himself time, learn something new. “It was something I needed for me,” he says. But his work morphed into a software project called Cosmos—a “command and control” system that sends instructions to satellites and displays data from their parts and pieces. Ball used it for some 50 flight projects and on-the-ground test systems. And in 2014, Melton decided Cosmos should share its light with the world. Today, it’s been used with everything from college projects to the planet-seeking Kepler telescope.

Reddit: Bob Ross and Jenny Holzer files for fortune

Monday 24th of April 2017 07:47:06 PM

Everybody likes Bob Ross's happy little quotes, right? I scraped them from bobrossquotes.com and turned into something that works with fortune.

If you've been through Schiphol airport in the last 22 years, you probably noticed Jenny Holzer's art installation of a large, vertical LED marquee scrolling various strange quips 24/7. (She's done many, many other installations besides that.) I always wanted to have the text from that sign as a 'fortune' file for my UNIX boxen, and I finally got around to making it happen this evening.

You'll also find a horrible script for maintaining fortune files in the same spot.

I hope you don't hate them.

TuxMachines: How to track and secure open source in your enterprise

Monday 24th of April 2017 06:55:46 PM

Recently, SAS issued a rather plaintive call for enterprises to limit the number of open source projects they use to a somewhat arbitrary percentage. That seems a rather obvious attempt to protest the rise of the open source R programming language for data science and analysis in a market where SAS has been dominant. But there is a good point hidden in the bluster: Using open source responsibly means knowing what you’re using so you can track and maintain it.

Why GPL Compliance Education Materials Should Be Free as in Freedom

I am honored to be a co-author and editor-in-chief of the most comprehensive, detailed, and complete guide on matters related to compliance of copyleft software licenses such as the GPL. This book, Copyleft and the GNU General Public License: A Comprehensive Tutorial and Guide (which we often call the Copyleft Guide for short) is 155 pages filled with useful material to help everyone understand copyleft licenses for software, how they work, and how to comply with them properly. It is the only document to fully incorporate esoteric material such as the FSF's famous GPLv3 rationale documents directly alongside practical advice, such as the pristine example, which is the only freely published compliance analysis of a real product on the market. The document explains in great detail how that product manufacturer made good choices to comply with the GPL. The reader learns by both real-world example as well as abstract explanation. However, the most important fact about the Copyleft Guide is not its useful and engaging content. More importantly, the license of this book gives freedom to its readers in the same way the license of the copylefted software does. Specifically, we chose the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike 4.0 license (CC BY-SA) for this work. We believe that not just software, but any generally useful technical information that teaches people should be freely sharable and modifiable by the general public. Read more

  • Highlights of YaST development sprint 33
    It has been a long time since our last status update! The reason is the end of the previous sprint caught quite some of the YaST Team members on vacations and, when the vacation period was over, we were so anxious to jump into development to make YaST another little bit better that the blog post somehow fell behind. But it’s time to pay our (reporting) debts. So these are some of the highlights of the 33th development sprint that finished on April 11th.
