  • Here is how you can fix Linux schedule bug

    Earlier this month, according to a lecture and paper delivered at the EuroSys ’16 conference in London, the Linux kernel scheduler has deficits that stop a multicore system from making proper use of all cores for heavily multithreaded loads.

    However, now a patch is available in a script provided by a third party for those who are running applications that might be affected and do not wish to wait for a solution from the kernel team.

Contributing to open source software with Ian Varley of Salesforce

With open source, you're expanding the sphere of people who might potentially care a lot about your code. You find others who have similar problems, and who can leverage your work and maybe even extend it. The knowledge that you've helped someone avoid "rebuilding the wheel" is really gratifying, and it's amplified when those people actually start getting so involved that they give you contributions of code or ideas. The project picks up steam, and you might even get unforeseen help tackling those issues you didn't have bandwidth to tackle yourself. Really, it's the gift that keeps on giving. Read more
