We are pleased to announce the Call for Microconferences for the 2017 edition of the Linux Plumbers Conference, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA on 13-15 September co-located with the Linux Foundation Open Source Summit.
A microconference is a collection of collaborative sessions focused on problems in a particular area of the Linux plumbing, which includes the kernel, libraries, utilities, UI, and so forth, but can also focus on cross-cutting concerns such as security, scaling, energy efficiency, or a particular use case.Event Title: Linux Plumbers Conference3 MarLearn more
Safia Abdalla is an open source developer and a maintainer on a project called nteract, but her pet topic is compilers. And, in her talk at Node.js Interactive, Abdalla explained the inner workings of the V8 compiler and how it can optimize the code it gets fed. Although Abdalla specifically focused on what goes on in the V8 compiler, she noted that there are many similarities to other compilers.
As everyone who watches TV and movie thrillers knows, the best way to ensure smartphone security is to tear your phone apart after making an important call and then break it into pieces and toss them into various trashcans and sewer grates. This can get expensive, however, especially if you want a nice model with 4K video and high-end cameras.

With the rapid growth of virtualized infrastructure and containerization, open source software and especially Linux are leading the way into a new era of software development. That was the message Al Gillen, vice president of the software and open source group at IDC, told the crowd at the Open Source Leadership Summit in Lake Tahoe in February. In his talk, Gillen charted the growth of Linux and other open source initiatives from 2001 to the present.
The storage team of ProfitBricks has been looking for a way to speed transfers between VMs on compute nodes and physical devices on storage servers, connected via InfiniBand, in their data centers. As a solution, they developed the IBNBD driver, which presents itself as a block device on the client side and transmits the block requests to the server side, according to Danil Kipnis, Software Developer at ProfitBricks GmbH.
“Any application requiring block IO transfer over InfiniBand network can benefit from the IBNBD driver,” says Kipnis.

Systems administrators who use a Linux workstation to access and manage IT infrastructure -- whether from home or at work -- are at risk of becoming attack vectors against the rest of the infrastructure.
Today’s software supply chain is fundamentally different than it was only a few years ago, and open source programs at large enterprises are helping to drive that trend. According to Sonatype’s 2016 State of the Software Supply Chain enterprises are both turning to existing open source projects to decrease the amount of code they have to write, and increasingly creating their own open source tools.
