Great news! It’s totally working. The very concept behind the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) -- a group of disparate yet dedicated people building software for the public good -- has proven successful and fruitful for the 21st year in a row. The indomitable community spirit dedicated to openness and innovation shows absolutely no sign of slowing down.

“If you’re a bit tired, this is a presentation on cache maintenance, so there will be plenty of opportunity to sleep.” Despite this warning from ARM Ltd. kernel developer Mark Rutland at his recent Embedded Linux Conference presentation, Stale Data, or How We (Mis-)manage Modern Caches, it was actually kind of an eye opener -- at least as far as cache management presentations go.
Samsung Electronics has officially publically released its Smart TV Software Development Kit (SDK) 2.3.1 Preview UI to developers. Samsung previously allowed access to the Preview UI to a limited number of selected partners. Devs are now encouraged to get involved with Integrating the single access experience into their apps and help grow the Tizen TV Ecosystem further with a wider range of apps. Developers are now able to promote content that is beneficial to both them and the end consumer. Users are able to select the Preview area and directly see contents and deep link into the application.

It may not be easy, but it’s absolutely doable. I recently tried living completely in a Linux shell for 30 days. What follows are my favorite shell applications for handling some of the most common bits of computer functionality (web browsing, word processing, etc.). With a few obvious holes. Because being text-only is hard.
Functionally the new Pi Zero is identical to the original model. I have tested it with a Raspbian microSD card that I had already been using in the original Pi Zero, and I had no problem. Just make sure it has the latest updates installed.
P.S. For those who might still wonder why the Pi Zero is interesting/useful, or why it was worthwhile to add a camera connection to it, have a look at this very spiffy Wearable Pi Zero Camera project.
The Tizen SDK consists of a set of tools for developing Tizen Web and Native applications. You get an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Emulator, toolchain, sample code, and documentation. Tizen SDK runs on the Windows, Ubuntu, and Mac OS X Platforms. You are able to create Tizen apps without the use of the official Tizen IDE, but you need to make sure that it it still conforms to the Tizen packaging rules.
