Interviews

I did my bachelor’s in Electronics Engineering, and embedded systems interested me a lot. Linux runs on millions of embedded devices and is a huge collaborative project -- thanks to Linus Torvalds and the Linux community. I started following Linux in my college days.

When I actually started working on the Linux kernel, I saw some memory leaks in kernel code and observed that every contributor has a voice in the open source community. Therefore, I started sending small patches on LKML. I got great support from maintainers and, because of that, my interest was boosted.

Red Hat CIO: Business advice on IT value

Red Hat
Interviews

To be truly successful as an IT organization, you must bring new ideas to drive revenue or reduce cost for the business as a whole. If you don’t, they’ll do it without you where there is a critical need and they have a budget. Then, you’ll end up with a non-integrated set of solutions and potentially security exposures.

BSD

I always loved „playing” with different operating systems so it was just a matter of time that I run into OpenBSD…

I first came to it because of its security reputation. „Security” is a very challenging aspect of modern IT and I was glad to find an operating system that made it its priority. I trust these guys much more than I trust myself in that regard

Interviews

The Linux Foundation regularly awards scholarships as part of its Linux Training Scholarship Program. In the five years that the Linux Foundation has hosted this program, it has awarded a total of 34 scholarships totaling more than $100,000 in free training to students and professionals who may not otherwise have access to these opportunities. In this continuing series, we share the stories of recent scholarship recipients with the hope of inspiring others.

Whiz Kid scholarship recipient Anthony Hooper (age 23, from Jamaica) has been interested in technology since junior high. He says learning more about Linux is important to his future so he will be able to do what he deems is meaningful work. What Anthony loves most about Linux is the “sheer magnitude of collaborative work poured into the kernel over the years by individuals all over the world and companies who are even rivals themselves.” He says that being able to learn about the system and make a contribution to it, even a small one, would be nothing short of amazing.

OpenStack: The good, the bad, and the ugly

Filed under
Interviews
OSS

While virtualization is great in multiplexing resources among different applications with different operating system requirements, the overheads of virtualization are pretty high. One of the other recent patterns that is gaining tremendous momentum is container-based ecosystems, where the virtualization overheads are pretty low. As I understand, it is a great environment for Linux-based distributed applications but does not yet have as strong primitives as OpenStack for multi-tenancy aspects (especially isolation).

BSD

A friend introduced me to OpenBSD about 15 years ago. At first I was just fooling around with it, and dual booting as necessary, but once I started using it as a server, I didn’t want the embarrassment of downtime whenever I had to reboot. Then I figured out I could write papers using WordPerfect (via Linux emulation) and stuck with OpenBSD full time.

  • Deweloperzy OpenBSD: Dmitrij D. Czarkoff

    In 2005 I tried OpenBSD for the first time. I still recall how I was impressed by the fact that I only needed ifconfig (as opposed to ifconfig, iwconfig and wpa_supplicant on Linux) to configure my wireless network card.

  • Deweloperzy OpenBSD: Marc Espie

    Funny story actually. It was about 20 years ago, and I didn’t have any Internet access at home. I wanted to play with some Unix on my home Amiga, as I didn’t have root access on the suns at University. Getting anything on my Amiga was complicated, as I had to transfer everything through floppies. Turned out OpenBSD was the only OS with sane and clear instructions. NetBSD gave you so many different choices, I couldn’t figure out which one to follow, and Linux was a jungle of patches.

Desktop environments, Cinnamon, and GNOME

  • Desktop environments in my computer
    I started my Linux journey with Gnome, as it was the default desktop environment in RHL. I took some time to find out about KDE. I guess I found out accidentally during re-installation. It used to be fun to have a desktop that looks different, behaves differently than the normal. During the earlier years in college while I was trying to find out more about Linux, using KDE marked me as a Linux expert. I was powered with the right syntax of mount command to mount the windows partitions and the xmms-mp3 rpm. I spent most of my time in the terminal.

  • Who's cashing in on containers? Look to the cloud
    Docker-style containers are so hot they’ve broken the scale ETR uses to measure CIO intent to purchase enterprise technology, registering “the strongest buying intention score ever recorded in [its] six-year history.” While that data is more than a year old, more recent analyses peg Docker adoption up by a factor of 2.6 in 2016 over 2015, yielding a market worth $762 million in 2016, projected to bloat to $2.7 billion by 2020, according to 451 Research.
  • Serverless Computing Is the Stack Reimagined [Ed: Serverless=you have less control over the computer you use. Cloud=you have no ownership of the computer you use. Serverless Cloud=suicide.]
    In Ho's own words, "Serverless computing is the code execution model that the cloud provider abstracts the complexity of managing individual servers." This basically means the provider worries about the servers. You just run your code on them.

The drug name is Contrave. Using two separate drugs to shed weight can be very effective you can find combinations before the FDA now awaiting approval. When dealing with fat loss and the people that go through it you ought to err to the side of caution and let the FDA do its job and demand some study be done in order that the public understands the side effects and dangers of the medications before we bring them. Keep in mind that drug companies will be in business to generate income and that they would say almost anything to keep people on his or her medications. Researchers found out that participants taking this drug for the year, dropped excess weight within one month and have kept the weight off through the entire 56 weeks from the study. Contrave can be a combination from the drugs naltrexone and bupropion, which seems to reflect a whole new trend of weight-loss drugs that are made up of several active ingredient, which may make them more efficient and safer. Combo-pilling may be the newest fad or also the newest in the future under scrutiny and so it is just more publicly known in recent months, comb-pilling for weight loss has been around since the eighties. The biggest reason that employing a combination of pills is starting to become popular will be the fact that since right now there aren't long term prescription weight loss supplements that have been authorized by the FDA besides orlistat. The truly disturbing part is that doctors are prescribing these combinations of medications even though some of the combinations happen to be rejected or have yet to be authorized by the FDA. Seizures certainly are a side effect with Contrave and mustn't be taken in individuals with seizure disorders. The drug may also raise blood pressure and heartrate, and really should not be used in individuals with a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months. Blood pressure and pulse should also be measured before commencing the drug and throughout therapy using the drug. The FDA also warned that Contrave can raise hypertension and heart rate and must not be used in patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure levels, in addition to by you are not heart-related and cerebrovascular (circulation system dysfunction impacting mental performance) disease. Patients using a history of cardiac arrest or stroke in the previous six months, life-threatening arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure were excluded through the clinical trials. Those taking Contrave should have their heart-rate and pulse monitored regularly. In addition, considering that the compound includes bupropion, Contrave comes having a boxed warning to alert health care professionals and patients to the increased probability of suicidal thoughts and behaviors related to antidepressant drugs. The warning also notes that serious neuropsychiatric events are actually reported in patients taking bupropion for quitting smoking. The course of recovery, even for those using the medications, centers more about talk and much less on pills because while drugs like acamprosate and naltrexone help change brain chemistry, they just don't change minds. Once you adopt away the alcohol, sometimes using the successful usage of prescribed medicine, the minds still need work. Alcoholics who slip in recovery and non-alcoholics drink for fundamentally the same reason: It relieves social/physical/emotional tension. With alcoholics however, their own health are programmed differently genetically and react to drinking with more drinking. So counseling or even a 12-step meeting helps those abstinent keep from using the first drink. Recovery has very little to do with stopping the drinking and the ones successful in recovery admit they're success is founded on learning or relearning the way to manage life's tensions.
