The demand for Linux developers has jumped seven percent in comparison to last year, a study has shown.

The 2014 Linux Jobs Report shows that hiring managers at tech-powered companies are focusing more attention on Linux talent, and that’s reverberating in the market, with stronger than average salary increases to those working with the OS.

Raspberry Pi: New Raspbian and NOOBS releases

Filed under
Linux

Well, this is starting to look sort of like "Jamie's Mostly Raspberry Pi Stuff", but that's not intentional, there's just a lot of interesting things going on with the RPi at the moment, so that's where I seem to be spending a lot of my time right now.

The big news, of course, was the announcement and immediate availability of the Raspberry Pi 2 hardware two weeks ago. The new hardware needs updated software to really make the most of its capabilities, so there was also a new Raspbian and NOOBS release (1.3.12) made at the same time.

A Quick Look at Eight Recent Linux Kernel Releases

Filed under
Linux

The Linux kernel sits at the core of all Linux-based operating systems and is produced in an open-source, multi-stakeholder process. It's a process that has evolved over the last two decades, with a steady flow of new developers pouring into the community and contributing code. In a new report released by The Linux Foundation Feb. 18, the pace of Linux code contribution is detailed with data looking at eight Linux kernel releases in 15 months—beginning with the Linux 3.11 kernel, released in September 2013, and ending with Linux 3.18, which debuted Dec. 8, 2014. The Linux development report finds that more than 80 percent of code contributed to the Linux kernel comes from developers who are paid for their work. The overall number of developers is also growing, with 1,458 contributing code for the Linux 3.18 release. Looking at the companies that contribute to Linux, Intel continues to lead the way, with 10.5 percent of code contributions during the development period covered in the report. In this slide show, eWEEK examines key data points on the state of Linux development.
