Jono Bacon: UDS so far

Filed under
Ubuntu

Well, I have been at the UDS for a few days, and there is lots of stuff going on around many different parts of Ubuntu and the community. Prepare for one of my rather ugly bullet-points-lists-of-ultimate-doom:

* The UDS spec process seems pretty decent. People register specs, session timetables are generated, discussions happen, drafts get…er…drafted, things get done. It is nice and open and based around doing things instead of just discussing things.
* Community has a really strong presence here. Lots of community specs and and huge amounts of awesome, constructive, pro-active discussion.
* It has been great to meet the core team, and great to see they are a fun bunch of people.

Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
