  • New Linux Foundation Effort to Focus on Data Confidence Fabrics to Scale Digital Transformation Initiatives

    IOT Solutions World Congress -- The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development among sustainable open source ecosystems, today announced the intent to form Project Alvarium. Project Alvarium will focus on building the concept of a Data Confidence Fabric (DCF) to facilitate measurable trust and confidence in data and applications spanning heterogeneous systems. The project will be seeded by code from Dell Technologies, with support from industry leaders including Arm, IBM, IOTA Foundation, MobiledgeX, OSIsoft, Unisys, and more.


    The project will be seeded in the coming quarter with work from Dell Technologies which also seeded the EdgeX Foundry project in April 2017. Now part of the LF Edge Umbrella, EdgeX is adopted globally for device- to- application interoperability at the IoT Edge, recently hitting one million total microservice downloads with half of those over the prior two months. The EdgeX framework is a default component within the DCF seed for open data ingestion, but as with any other ingredients, it can be replaced with a preferred alternative.

  • IOTA rises 10% on Dell and Linux partnerships

    The IOTA cryptocurrency rose nearly 10 percent yesterday, following the news that the Internet of Things (IoT) protocol will be teaming up with computing giant Dell and the open-source focused Linux Foundation on a new project to improve the trustworthiness of data.

    The new project, called Alvarium (Latin for “beehive”), is aimed at creating intrinsic trust across exceedingly diverse systems. By using blockchain technology (specifically, a distributed acrylic graph) and a data rating system—known as Data Confidence Fabrics—the project aims to provide a way of ensuring that certain data, once generated from a variety of sources, is known to be accurate.

  • IOTA partners with Dell and Linux for data trustworthiness ratings

    Data trustworthiness is one of the biggest challenges that the technology sector faces in the coming decade. As more people get connected to the internet with more devices, as the Internet of Things gets into everyone’s lives, the amount of data being collected is exponentially increasing. In this world, making sure we can trust this data becomes increasingly important. 

    Linux Foundation announced Project Alvarium, in partnership with industry leaders like Dell, IOTA Foundation, Arm, IBM, MobiledgeX, OSIsoft, Unisys and more. The aim of this project will be to build a Data Confidence Fabric or DCF. This will enable measuring the trustworthiness of data collected from various sources. DCF is also called ‘trust fabric’. It will be embedded in the path of data collection which will facilitate the delivery of trusted data from devices to the applications.

  • Python App Development: Perfect Web Framework choice for Startups

    2020 is here, and so are new ideas for a startup. But how do you plan to handle the technical part of your startup? You obviously need an application if you want to reach the maximum customers. And if you’re going to hire people for developing your tech, Python app development should be their expertise. Not only because Python works for AI and ML, which are the future, but it enables web development unlike any other. If you’re looking to scale your startup this year, you should consider Python software development. Software development can be challenging. And if you have only a faint idea, you can face a serious setback. But Python for web development is extremely reliable for any startup. In fact, Python is going to compliment every startup in the near future. It offers functionalities and capabilities that provide integration with future tech. And every startup, even yours, would want to integrate with the future.

  • Some sessions from the Python Language Summit

    Mark Shannon shared his thoughts on a more formal definition of the Python language. It would not only help developers of alternative implementations understand the nuances and corner cases of the language, it would also help developers of the CPython reference implementation fully understand that code base. He noted that Java has a language specification and he thinks that Python could benefit from having one as well. Shannon proposed splitting the specification up into three parts: code loading (parsing, importing, and so on), execution, and the C API. For his presentation, he looked in more detail at the execution specification. For example, he broke down a function call into a series of steps: create a stack frame, move the function arguments from the current frame to the new one, save the instruction pointer, and push the frame onto the stack. Breaking things down that way will allow developers to rework how certain features are interrelated. The example he gave was that iterators came first, so generators were defined in terms of iterators, even though generators are the lower-level concept. If you were starting from scratch, it would make more sense to specify iterators as being built on generators. In his nascent formal semantics repository, Shannon made a start on defining iterators in terms of generators.

  • Using the Python sleep() Method

    If you want to set a time delay before executing any script, then you can use the sleep() function that is built into Python. This method exists under the time module. Generally, the sleep() function is used to halt the execution of the program for the given time period (in seconds). For example, if you are downloading a file from a location using a script that may require a certain time period, then you can use the sleep() method to inform the user to wait. This tutorial will show you some of the different uses of the sleep() function in Python 3.

  • How to Use maketrans in Python 3

    The maketrans() function is a built-in translate method in Python used to create character-mapping conversion tables. One character is translated into another character via this method. This function can be applied to string and dictionary data to map characters. Unicode representation of the character is used in the translation table. The translate() function is used to convert the data of the translation table into the string data. This tutorial will explain how the maketrans() method can be used in Python for character mapping.

  • Python List Sort

    Sorting data is one of the most common tasks when working with Python. For example, you may want to sort a list of team members by name, or a list of projects in order of priority.

  • The road to Quarkus GA: Completing the first supported Kubernetes-native Java stack

    I’ve had many proud moments in my role here at Red Hat over the years. Examples include when we released the first version of WildFly, when we acquired the Camel team, when we worked with other vendors to create Eclipse MicroProfile, the great work the Strimzi team did to get into the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, our entire Red Hat Managed Integration effort, Kogito, and the list goes on. I feel like I add to this list of examples on an almost weekly basis. Well, I can now update this list with the first product release of Quarkus, formally called the Red Hat build of Quarkus. (You can also find more support options on the Quarkus project site.) It should come as no surprise that Quarkus is on this list. I suppose what might surprise some people is that Quarkus is only just a product now. Given all of the activities since we officially launched the Quarkus project in 2019, you could be forgiven for thinking it was already a product.
