If you're walking in the area of Boston's City Hall Plaza today, you might find yourself the subject of unique photo collage tomorrow.

Twenty-five local middle school girl are out roaming the city with digital cameras they built themselves as part of Red Hat Inc.'s (NYSE: RHT) CO.LAB initiative. On Friday, they'll turn the photos into a digital art installation that will be displayed at City Hall and Boston University.

The girls built the cameras on Wednesday out of Raspberry Pi computer kits — small, simple devices that teach the basics of programming. (Click through the gallery above to see the building process.)

  • ProfsoUX 2017 Trip Report

    First of all, I was invited to come and give a talk by a friend, who lives in St Petersburg and works as a UX specialist (more about him later). He said people will be very interested in how open source design happens, what tools we use and what problems we face. It was an excellent opportunity to promote Red Hat and Fedora and meet professionals in my field of work. Furthermore, the UX scene in Russia is a bit different, and I was interested to find out how they work and what projects are going on. As always, conferences are great networking events, and I was happy to find out some people even came specifically to see me talk. So, altogether I really enjoyed ProfsoUX, now let’s talk about it in more detail.

  • Fedora Media Writer Test Day (Fedora 26 edition) on Thursday 2017-04-20!

    It’s that time again: we have another test day coming up this week! Thursday 2017-04-20 will be another Fedora Media Writer Test Day. We’ve run these during the Fedora 24 and 25 cycles as well, but we want to make sure the tool is ready for the Fedora 26 release, and also test a major new feature it has this time around: support for writing ARM images. So please, if you have a bit of spare time and a system to test booting on – especially a Fedora-supported ARM device – come out and help us test!

  • Flatpak

    Flatpak provides a simple and user-friendly way to run, update and create self-contained desktop applications.

    It is possible to run proprietary, big and bloated software like Skype or Spotify on a lightning fast and sleek musl based Void Linux system.

  • Void Linux now has Flatpak support included

    The Void Linux distribution has recently merged-in support for Flatpak, the new packaging format for Linux.

    If you haven't heard of Void Linux, don't fret, there's a lot of distributions and it's quite a task keeping tabs on all of them. Void is another rolling-release distribution, so you don't need to do a big upgrade every few months, it just continually updates.

  • New Fedora 25 Live ISOs Include Linux Kernel 4.10.10, Security Patches, Updates

  • Java 9 Tech Preview Planned For Fedora 27

    Fedora developers are planning to be prompt in offering Java 9 on their Linux distribution via OpenJDK.

    Java 9 / OpenJDK 9 is planned for release this summer -- at the end of July to be exact. Therefore, Fedora developers are planning to get Java 9 into their release due out in H2'2017, Fedora 27.

    But due to new APIs of Java 9, this updated in OpenJDK in Fedora 27 will just be offered as a technology preview. OpenJDK 8 will continue to be the default in Fedora until at least F28.

  • Translation Sprint 2017

    The last couple of days there was a Fedora Translation Sprint that I took as an opportunity to find out how translations in Fedora work nowadays. The actual translation happens at Fedora’s Zanata instance, a web based application for translation collaborations. Even though it accepts Fedora’s FAS single sign-on system, it is not possible to directly propose translations. Unfortunately, several manual steps are required. Luckily I noticed this early enough in the sprint and Roman, the German translation team coordinator, pressed the necessary buttons in time for me to join during the sprint.

  • Flock Cod Logo Ideas

    Ryan Lerch put together an initial cut at a Flock 2017 logo and website design (flock2017-WIP branch of fedora-websites). It was an initial cut he offered for me to play with; in trying to work on some logistics for Flock to make sure things happen on time I felt locking in on a final logo design would be helpful at this point.

Open Source Software: 10 Go To Solution for Small Businesses

The fact that open-source softwares have evolved to become somewhat user-friendly and sleek also helps a good deal. Read more

Linux 4.11-rc8

So originally I was just planning on releasing the final 4.11 today, but while we didn't have a *lot* of changes the last week, we had a couple of really annoying ones, so I'm doing another rc release instead. I did get fixes for the issues that popped up, so I could have released 4.11 as-is, but it just doesn't feel right. It's not like another week of letting this release mature will really hurt. The most noticeable of the issues is that we've quirked off some NVMe power management that apparently causes problems on some machines. It's not entirely clear what caused the issue (it wasn't just limited to some NVMe hardware, but also particular platforms), but let's test it.

Themes for Ubuntu

  • Flattiance is a Flat Fork of Ubuntu’s Ambiance Theme
    Flattiance is pitched as a “semi-flat fork” of the Ubuntu Ambiance theme. You know, the one that ships out of the box and by default. On the whole Flattiance keeps to the same color palette, with dark browns and orange accents, but it ditches the gradient in app headers in favour of a solid block.
