  • What do developers think of open source, AI, machine learning, and net neutrality?

    A few of the big trends in technology these last few years have been AI and machine learning. The software is getting smarter and developers have access to some awesome tools. That doesn’t mean all developers have embraced the trends. Digital Ocean, a U.S.-based cloud infrastructure provider, has released their quarterly report on developer trends. The report covers everything from AI to net neutrality to open source.

    AI and machine learning are popular but not widely used. The report found 74% of developers are not using AI or ML tools in their workflow, but 81% want to learn more about them. Google TensorFlow (17%) is the most popular choice among those who are using AI and machine learning. 46% of developers are most excited about advancements in automated machine learning.

  • Developers offer insight on AI, Open Source, and GDPR in new survey [Ed: This is just a publicity stunt from DigitalOcean]

    There is alot of new tech already in motion this year - most of which was birthed into the industry years ago, though it's just now creeping into our daily thoughts as developers. So what do you think about, or should you be thinking about?

    Cloud provider DigitalOcean has released a new survey on software developer trends and technologies. The survey had almost 6,000 respondents, with over half self-identified as developers.

TuxMachines: The Kernel Self-Protection project aims to make Linux more secure

Friday 23rd of March 2018 03:51:28 AM

Security vulnerabilities in the kernel often remain undetected. The kernel hacker initiative, Kernel Self-Protection, promotes safe programming techniques to keep attackers off the network, and, if they do slip through the net, mitigate the consequences.

Any Black Hat who finds a previously unknown vulnerability in the Linux kernel has hit the jackpot. Potentially millions of servers and embedded devices are suddenly open to attack, and the attacker can usually gain root privileges. Users clearly don't want this to happen, and kernel makers try to prevent such events.

TuxMachines: A side-by-side comparison of MongoDB and Cassandra databases

Friday 23rd of March 2018 03:26:02 AM

They're both databases, obviously. More importantly, they are both examples of NoSQL databases. NoSQL is a type of database architecture in which data is stored in a relatively unstructured fashion. Compared to more traditional SQL-style databases, NoSQL can be a more efficient way of storing the large quantities of unstructured data that organizations commonly use for big data operations.

MongoDB and Cassandra are also both open source -- although commercial implementations are available, too. But even in that respect, they are not identical. MongoDB is governed by GNU Affero General Public License 3.0, whereas Cassandra is subject to Apache License 2.0.

Reddit: Your guide for transitioning away from Apple (or, ok, Windows)?

Friday 23rd of March 2018 02:55:58 AM

This isn't a support question so much as a lifestyle shift question. I am already a sys admin in my professional life, that's not the kind of thing I need help with.

What would your (extremely) practical advice be for someone who's had Apple ecosystem hardware in their personal life for a decade (let's say, a laptop, phone, and smart watch) and is ready to commit to a free and open source hardware and software lifestyle? Please consider the impracticality of stopping everything and buying new hardware all at once, as well as personal data existing in 1.) proprietary clouds (iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.), and 2.) proprietary formats (Apple Pages, Keynote; Adobe formats, etc.). Have you done this yourself? If not, how would you advise a friend or family member to do this?
