I have often referred to edX as the Linux for learning. And last week, The Linux Foundation became one of our first non-university members to offer courses on edX.
Hacking together custom embedded operating systems from scratch is akin to building Frankenstein out of code.
As usual, Mobile World Congress was packed with cool new SoCs, most of which are destined for Android phones and tablets. Some will see wider usage in the broader world of embedded Linux and Android devices.
Five Linux network utilities to test and track network performance.
In this Q&A Mike Day, distinguished engineer and chief virtualization architect at IBM, discusses the progress of KVM and the open source cloud.
In this Q&A Vojtech Pavlik, Director of SUSE Labs, goes into more detail on their live kernel patching project; how the kGraft patch integrates with the Linux kernel; how it compares with other live-patching solutions; how developers will be able to use the upcoming release; and the project's interaction with the kernel community for upstream acceptance.
The long wait for a major Tizen OS device is finally over, and it's a…smartwatch? At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, Samsung skipped the unveiling of its first Tizen smartphone, and instead rolled out a trio of Tizen-based wrist computers: the Gear 2 and Gear Neo.
The lights are off, the booths are packed up, the devices tucked away, and it's 5:30 a.m. in the Barcelona airport. Guess it's time for a Tizen update. There's been a lot written about the most recent Tizen devices (Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, joining the NX300M and the NX30) so I won't rehash that here, but I would like to put them into context.
You can run multiple websites from your inexpensive shared Web hosting account, thanks to .htaccess.
The coming smartphone slowdown applies more pressure on mobile Linux platforms to either innovate with features or provide competitive pricing. Fortunately, examples of both were in evidence at this week's Mobile World Congress (MWC), from Jolla's modular faceplates to a $25 Firefox OS smartphone prototype.
Mozilla has designed a phone that's even more affordable for emerging markets and thus redefines the entry level for smartphones.
Jack Wallen demonstrates how to install Ubuntu or Bodhi Linux for more power and flexilibity on an Acer C720 Chromebook.
Linux professionals not only have great jobs -- they have great careers, says Dice President Shravan Goli. What makes a Linux career among the best in tech? In this Q&A, Goli discusses how Linux careers compare and gives an inside perspective on the Linux job market.
Dice.com and The Linux Foundation last week released the 2014 Linux Jobs Report. This slideshow presents some of the highlights.
The Linux Foundation today is premiering its end-of-year video, Linux 2013: Changing the World One Line of Code at a Time.
MakerBot's Linux-based Replicator 3D printers are leading a creative revolution for consumers.
Manage multiple cameras, create surveillance zones, and make movies.
If you've ever used Linux, you've most likely used OpenPGP without even realizing it. The open-source implementation of OpenPGP is called GnuPG (stands for "GNU Privacy Guard"), and nearly all distributions rely on GnuPG for package integrity verification. However, far fewer people have actually used GnuPG for what it was originally designed for -- secure exchange of information in an untrusted medium (such as the internet), and even fewer have a good understanding of how the trust relationships are supposed to work. In this mini series of articles, we'll take a look at what the web of trust is and how to use it to set up a secure and trusted communication.
Linux and open virtualization technologies are helping push the limits of IT infrastructure to support cloud computing, high-availability data centers and more. From KVM to Xen Project and more, SysAdmins have more opportunity than ever before to be a part of the team innovating to advance both business opportunities and technology in their companies.
