Welcome to 30 Linux Kernel Developer Workspaces in 30 Weeks! This is the first in a 30-week series that takes a new approach to the original series, 30 Linux Kernel Developers in 30 Weeks. This time we take a look inside developers' workspaces to learn even more about what makes them tick and how to collaborate with some of the top talent in all of software. Each week will share a picture and/or a video of the workspaces that Linux kernel developers use to advance the greatest shared technology resource in history.
The first installment of The Iron Penguin!
Why is the Robot rampaging through Tokyo? (Actually, why does just about every giant robot and monster rampage through Tokyo, or live deep in the ocean just off the coast?)
Who will save the day?
These questions and possibly more will be answered soon...
I hope to see some of you at LinuxCon Japan and the Automotive Linux Summit this year.
How to protect yourself online with the TAILS privacy distro.
The open source cloud discussion has noticeably shifted over the past year, away from whether the industry needs an open source alternative to the Amazon Web Services API and toward providing services that Amazon doesn't offer.
With its new Silvermont architecture, it looks like Intel has finally leaped forward in mobile. But whether it can ward off ARM'S upcoming 64-bit ARMv8 processors is another story.
More than 60 Linux-related projects are currently listed on Kickstarter. Here's a small sampling of some particularly compelling examples.
KVM and open virtualization are being rapidly adopted as end users look for lower-cost, enterprise hypervisors. One the major use cases for KVM is to virtualize and consolidate Linux workloads, and the pre-integration of KVM in major Linux distributions makes it easy for Linux enterprise end users to adopt KVM. A special KVM End User Technical Summit is running during this year's Linux Foundation Enterprise End User Summit, with the aim of introducing Linux users to the benefits of KVM, describing the KVM technical roadmap, and discussing the deployment and management of KVM both on its own and in multi-hypervisor environments. Sponsored by IBM, and with support from members of the Open Virtualization Alliance, this track aims to bring together customers, vendors and developers for interactive discussions about the use of KVM in practice, barriers...
At the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in April, the Xen Project announced that it was now a Collaborative Project of the Linux Foundation. But as people attended some of the Xen-related conference sessions, one question always seemed to be asked: “Why should I use Xen?”
Mageia Linux prepares its third release, so we get an early peek.
Join open source cloud experts from CloudStack, Eucalyptus, Gluster, OpenShift, OpenStack, Puppet Labs, Rackspace and Red Hat for a Linux Foundation live video chat next Tuesday, May 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific, via Google Hangouts On Air.
Despite the risks of space, a growing number of organizations are developing tiny, low-cost nanosatellites built with Linux, Android, and Arduino gear. And many are using open source designs.
I am pleased to announce The Linux Foundation is funding three Linux kernel internships through the Outreach Program for Women administered by the GNOME Foundation. These internships have a $5,000 stipend and come with a $500 travel grant to attend and speak at LinuxCon this fall. This is a great opportunity to work with a mentor and get started with kernel development, which as many articles report, is a great way to land a high-paying job. The official deadline for applying to OPW is May 1st. However, the kernel project joined late, so that deadline is flexible. Please fill our your initial application, and then update by May 17th with your initial patch. Applicants will be notified by May 27th if they have been accepted. Participating areas of...
To get some real world examples of Linux deployments in action, we followed up on the Enterprise End User Survey with an informal poll of the Linux Foundation’s LinkedIn community.
As discussed in the last tutorial, you can write your own code to enable multi-touch manually. However, in the case of common multi-touch gestures, like double-tap, scroll, and fling, you can also simplify matters by taking advantage of the built-in GestureDetector.
Eric Brown's seven top smartwatches available now.
Ten weeks to the day after the arrival of version 3.8, Linux creator Linus Torvalds on Monday released version 3.9 of the Linux kernel. Here are six interesting new features from Linux.com writer Katherine Noyes.
A number of Android-powered smartwatches are already on the market, and there's at least one (Leikr) that runs Linux. This slideshow reveals devices of note, as well as two intriguing open source, Kickstarter-funded watches that don't run a formal OS but offer hooks to Linux and Android.
