Rate your inner Linux geek as easy as ABC ...

Linux

Sure, you could use Facebook to run a collection of poorly-worded tests that let you and your friends know who is more like David Hasslehoff, but if you really want to separate the Linux aficionados from the rest you need something stronger.
Here is a way to prove your Linux runs on the board. If you’re an old-timer, here is your chance to shine. Here is ... a rhyme.

Oh, but not just any old rhyme. This is an aeons old (at least in Internet time) rhyme dubbed the ABC’s of UNIX but which still equally applies today.

Linux has a rich heritage, drawing upon the expansive collection of UNIX commands and history and among the commands mentioned in this rhyme are true fundamentals. Who could run a Linux box without passwd, kill and grep?

How geeky are you?

Comparing the similarities and differences between inner source and open source

Open source software (OSS) has been around since the 1990s and has thrived, quickly growing to become mainstream. It is now more well understood around the world than it has ever been before. Some refer to it as FOSS to highlight the Freedom part of open source (Free and Open Source Software). And in 2014, at OSCON, the term "inner source" was debuted, and people started talking about how to use the principles of open source, but inside of a company. It raised several questions for those unfamiliar with the term, which I hope to answer with this article. For example, what is similar about the two, what is different, the company roles involved in the two, is inner source taking the energy away from open source, etc. These are all fair questions, and as my organization practices both and is involved in both movements, I want to take some time to share insight with this audience as a developer, as a company, and as an open source enthusiast.
