  • Flock 2015 thoughts.

    Like everyone on the Fedora Engineering team, I was in Rochester for the Flock conference last week. After several flight delays on our direct flight from DCA to Rochester, Justin Forbes, Ricky Elrod, and I finally arrived a little after 9:00pm — about four hours late. Thankfully Josh Boyer came to pick us up at the airport.

  • My semi serious stand up comedy notes

    But what if you want a little more power over the sound on your system? The PulseAudio system that handles audio in Fedora can do a lot. Although the Sound panel doesn’t expose all this power, other utilities do. One of these is the PulseAudio Volume Control, also known as pavucontrol.

  • Fedora Localization test tomorrow (18th Aug 2015)

    I always wonder how fast Fedora keeps on moving. I am going to Aurangabad, India for Fedora 22 release event coming Friday and at other end Fedora Alpha 23 released last week and we are going to execute Fedora 23 L10n test day tomorrow.

Everyone changes lightbulbs in an open organization

Filed under
Red Hat

One final thought: open organizations like Red Hat understand how important finding one's "sweet spot" can be. I love the fact that if associates are not happy in their roles, then Red Hat does its level best find somewhere for them to be happy. Other organizations can seem entirely uncompromising, like places where people are treated as cookie cutter resources. There, if you're a gingerbread baker who doesn't like baking anymore—well, then, tough cookies (pun intended)!

  • Red Hat and Others Back Tesora, Focused on DBaaS

    As the OpenStack cloud computing arena grows, a whole ecosystem of tools is growing along with it. Tesora, the leading contributor to the OpenStack Trove open source project, has been making waves with its cloud database-as-a-service (DBaaS) technology. Many enterprises are seeking to leverage database-as-a-service tools as they put applications in the cloud.

  • Red Hat bullish on Malaysia

Fedora: To Chromium or Not to Chromium...

Filed under
Red Hat

Chromium isn't included with Fedora, but Firefox is and some are wondering if time has come to change that. The topic was discussed this week on the Fedora developers' mailing list and some feel that if an exception is made for Firefox, perhaps one should be made for Chromium as well. But there are sound reasons why Chromium isn't allowed.

    Coming almost a year after the original product's launch, Satellite 6.1 will extend the service's core capabilities to container deployments, which isolates software to maintain performance across different environments and to protect data.

  • Goodbye Henry Ford, hello open organization

    Thinking about all the current and future employees who join Red Hat directly out of school is exciting. By starting their careers at Red Hat, they will hopefully avoid some of the corporate frustrations I experienced throughout my 20s. They will understand the power of intentional corporate culture, transparency, and open communication. Their careers will be rooted in a non-traditional understanding of corporate organization. As they become the future leaders at Red Hat and elsewhere they will bring this perspective with them. The Henry Ford era of management philosophy may finally begin to change.

The State of Fedora: 2015 Edition

Filed under
Red Hat

Fedora’s third Flock conference kicked off Wednesday morning with a keynote by Matthew Miller, the Fedora Project Leader (FPL). How’s Fedora doing? Says Miller, “The actual state of Fedora is awesome, we’re doing very well as a project and it’s thanks to all of you.”

Miller says that the project is doing very well, and brought out some stats to prove it – with the caveat that stats can be misinterpreted and “dangerous” if used wrong. After a period of “disconcerting down releases” the Yum connection stats for Fedora 21 and 22 are showing that those releases are back up to the same levels as Fedora 14. Miller also walked through a number of other stats on downloads, and which releases are in use currently.

Rackspace developer advocate on getting started with open source

There are several reasons. If you have an idea for a utility or framework or whatever, and you would like the support of an entire community of developers, open source is a great way to go. If you want your code "out there" so it can be reviewed and critiqued (which will improve your skills), open source is a good solution. If you are just out of school and want to establish yourself and show off your coding skills, start an open source project. Finally, if you're altruistic and just want to help the software community at large, yes, please, start an open source project. Read more

Using Linux Mint: Common tasks, features and to-dos for the first-timer

Linux-based operating systems are like those friends you make in high school--you know the type: reserved, quirky and not quite like the rest of the pack. But intelligent and the kind that, once you get to know them, will stand by you through thick and thin. Ok, that may be a stretch, but you get the idea. Linux comprises but a fraction of a percent of operating systems deployed, and with reason--it’s traditionally been difficult to set up and use. Which is why it used to appeal only to users with a higher level of computer proficiency: basically geeks. But while this was the case back in the day, plenty has changed--today installing and using it is very comparable to the Windows experience. Read more
