Open human augmentation at Penguicon 2015

Filed under
Linux

Want to learn and do technical programming the fun way? Penguicon is more than your typical tech conference.

For the past 13 years, Penguicon has been a community event; all 500+ hours of programming is done in the community, by the community. And it's not just for those who are heavily involved in tech, Penguicon is a mashup of a variety of nerd cultures: science fiction, literary, cosplay, food, whiskey, beer, anime, films, nerdcore/chiptunes, filk... the list goes on.

If you're a nerd of any variety, chances are Penguicon has some programming for you—and if we don't, we encourage you to share your interests with us to we can learn and grow!

AMD Releases New "AMDGPU" Linux Kernel Driver & Mesa Support

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Linux

At long last the source code to the new AMDGPU driver has been released! This is the new driver needed to support the Radeon R9 285 graphics card along with future GPUs/APUs like Carrizo. Compared to the existing Radeon DRM driver, the new AMDGPU code is needed for AMD's new unified Linux driver strategy whereby the new Catalyst driver will be isolated to being a user-space binary blob with both the full open-source driver and the Catalyst driver using this common AMDGPU kernel driver.

Linux-friendly COM Express triplets embed Intel Bay Trail SoCs

Filed under
Linux

When we saw the announcement for the CEM841 COM Express Type 2, we noticed that Axiomtek had already listed two other very similar new COM Express modules — the CEM842 and CEM843 — as “coming soon.” The CEM841 and CEM842 each offers a choice of dual- or quad-core Intel Celeron system-on-chip from the same 22nm Bay Trail generation as the Atom E3845 used by the CEM843. The CEM841 uses the 125 x 95mm COM Express Type 2 Basic format, while the other two modules adopt the 95 x 95mm COM Express Type 6 form factor. The modules specifically support Linux Ubuntu and CentOS, but other mainstream Linux variants should work fine.

Get the Tizen Operating System on your Raspberry PI 2

Filed under
Linux

There has been some great work done with getting Tizen running on different development boards, and today I am pleased to see that its the time for the Raspberry PI 2 Dev Board to get some Tizen love courtesy of the Samsung Open Source group. Tizen is an Important Operating System (OS) within Internet of Things (IoT) and therefore it made sense for Tizen to come to the Raspberry Pi, which is the most popular single-board computer with more than 5 million sold.

Why open source could be IBM's key to future success in the cloud

Do those same developers need IBM? Developers certainly benefit from IBM's investments in open source, but it's not as clear that those same developers have much to gain from IBM's cloud. Google, for example, has done a stellar job open sourcing code like TensorFlow and Kubernetes that feeds naturally into running related workloads on Google Cloud Platform. Aside from touting its Java bonafides, however, IBM has yet to demonstrate that developers get significant benefits for modern workloads on its cloud. That's IBM's big challenge: Translating its open source expertise into real, differentiated value for developers on its cloud. Read more

Top 8 Debian-Based Distros

Most people tend to forget that despite Ubuntu's success over the years, it's still just a distro based on another distro - Debian. Debian on its own, however, isn't really well suited for newer users...hence the explosion of distros based on Debian over the recent years. There are lot of great choices for Linux users. Which one is best for you? Read more
