  • App Review of GCompris: Kids' Happiness

    If you have children, you know how hard it is to make a child happy and interested in something for a long time. But there is an easy way to do that: show them GCompris. It is a really great game set for children 2-10 years old and they surely will like it. You may ask, if GCompris is really so good, and I would answer you "Yes". And that is not a joke. Here are some proofs of that. But, you know, nothing is ideal, so I will also mention its bad sides (unfortunately, they are present too).

  • How to Use the Terraform Command Line Interface (CLI) on Ubuntu

    Terraform is a framework for building and configuring infrastructure as code, with a command-line interface and DSL language. Terraform can manage existing and popular service providers as well as custom in-house solutions to build and configure complete distributed data centers. The Terraform Command Line Interface (CLI) lets you use Terraform without having to write any code or configuration files. It's an ideal way to prototype infrastructure changes with your team before writing code, deploying configurations locally on your machine, or pushing them into production. The CLI builds off of the terraformspec file format that was created for this purpose by third parties such as HashiCorp Nomad CLI Toolkit. The CLI toolkit implements a JavaScript DSL to define the infrastructure and uses the same configuration format in both Terraform and the CLI. The CLI toolkit also provides commands to generate infrastructure templates, compose infrastructure components into complete solutions, and manage changes. The entire Terraform workflow is driven by stateless functions that are defined in code and executed by Terraform every time you make a change. This allows you to think about your infrastructure as a single design that can be easily modified at runtime without reloading your configuration or modifying your codebase. A number of IT professionals and companies use the Terraform command-line interface to manage and even create new infrastructure or new cloud infrastructures. The terraform command-line interface can provide a more robust method for automating changes that would take too long to perform by hand. It is a powerful tool for managing infrastructure.

  • Grafana Weather Dashboard using InfluxDB and an ESP32 - In-Depth Tutorial - The DIY Life

    Following one of my previous projects where I built a weather station dashboard using InfluxDB and Grafana on the reTerminal, I had quite a few requests to do a more in-depth tutorial on how to get each part set up and running. So in this tutorial, I’m going to be going through each part of the process, step-by-step, so that you can get a similar setup running on your Raspberry Pi. In this example, we’re going to use an ESP32 as our data collection node to collect temperature, humidity and pressure readings from some attached sensors. It’ll then post these readings to an InfluxDB database and we’ll then use Grafana to visualise the data. Don’t worry if you don’t understand what these are or how they work together just yet, I’ll explain them each in more detail as we work through them.

  • The Evolution of Linux: a success story from Fujitsu and SUSE | SUSE Communities [Ed: Revisionism that omits GNU]

    Technological innovations are often considered to be ideas and solutions that take off immediately. But the evolution of Linux tells a different story: From humble beginnings in the 1990s, Linux has grown slowly and steadily to become a leading operating system in the business world, and now a business-critical operating system to run SAP. During this time, Fujitsu and SUSE have continued to innovate together, helping businesses everywhere to realize the benefits of Linux by running their SAP applications on it. I caught up with Jürgen Ellwanger and Martin Werner at the Global Fujitsu SAP Competence Centre to find out more about how Fujitsu and SUSE supported the evolution of Linux through a partnership of collaboration and innovation.
