  • diff -u: What's New in Kernel Development

    System calls notoriously have insufficient error reporting. Some take lots of inputs, and if any of them are wrong in any way, or fail some obscure bounds check, the call returns "EINVAL" for invalid data, but doesn't give any other clue about which piece of data had the problem, or what the value was, or where in the code the problem occurred.

    Alexander Shishkin recently tried to implement a solution to this. The real issue though is that the kernel can't simply change the way system calls handle return values. There's code all through the kernel and in userland that depends upon the current behavior. Any solution, therefore, would somehow have to provide additional reporting information, withou

    Open-source code platforms — in part, because they’re often free — have long been a popular choice for digital service creation and maintenance. In recent years, however, some agencies have turned to low-code solutions for intuitive visual features such as drag-and-drop design functionality. As Forrester Research notes, low-code platforms are "application platforms that accelerate app delivery by dramatically reducing the amount of hand-coding required."
  • Crunchy Data Brings Enterprise Open Source POSTGRESQL To U.S. Government With New DISA Security Technical Implementation Guide
    Crunchy Data — a leading provider of trusted open source PostgreSQL and enterprise PostgreSQL technology, support and training — is pleased to announce the publication of a PostgreSQL Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), making PostgreSQL the first open source database with a STIG. Crunchy Data collaborated with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to evaluate open source PostgreSQL against the DoD's security requirements and developed the guide to define how open source PostgreSQL can be deployed and configured to meet security requirements for government systems.
  • Democratizing IoT design with open source development boards and communities
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is at the heart of what the World Economic Forum has identified as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, an economic, technical, and cultural transformation that combines the physical, digital, and biological worlds. It is driven by such technologies as ubiquitous connectivity, big data, analytics and the cloud.
