  • At Open Source Summit, Linus Torvalds hosts another fireside chat | ZDNet

    Once more, at The Linux Foundation's Open Source Summit, Cardano's chief open source officer Dirk Hohndel and Linux creator Linus Torvalds had a wide-ranging conversation about Linux development and related issues.

    Torvalds, who hates public speaking, said that he always does these presentations as interviews because, "I do software. I don't do public speaking." The hindrance being, he explained, "I don't know what people are interested in. So, Dirk asks the questions and, hopefully, if he asks bad questions, it's not my fault."

  • Open-Source Technologies, Issues on Display at Linux Foundation Summit | LinuxInsider

    The Linux Foundation is holding one of its most expansive physical and virtual showcases this week at its Open Source Summit North America 2022 in Austin, Texas.

    The event is a staging ground for some of the most important announcements and cutting-edge topics touching open source today.

    LF built the Summit as an umbrella for the open-source projects and technologies that are fundamental across software and other industries. It highlighted those that are poised for growth and widespread use.

  • How to Develop an Open Source Strategy [Ed: We're meant to think Microsoft-funded anti-FOSS shills are those who should be lecturing us. That's the "Linux Foundation club"... since when is Forrester an expert in "Open Source"?]

    When setting goals and shaping your plan, you also need to set up your organization for success.

  • Open Source Technology Careers Become More Lucrative as Open Source Software Becomes Dominant and Talent Gaps Persist [Ed: Pushing the "talent gap" with edX 1, 2]; edX should rebrand, maybe adX. The employment crisis isn't a "skills shortage" or "labour shortage" crisis but a crisis of underpaid workers whose skills are lied about to lower the salaries further, then laying them off and blaming it on them ("Great Resignation"). In some countries real unemployment rate is about 50%. Linux Foundation is a front group for billionaires, oppressing the community that did all the work free of charge. Linux Foundation is led by chronic liars who forge/fabricate their qualifications. It's the LIE-NOX Foundation.]

Sponsored Trash

Marketing Trash

  • Cardano Foundation Becomes Gold Member In The Linux Foundation [Ed: They basically signed a marketing contract and will misappropriate the "Linux" mark in exchange for money]
  • Cardano, Linux Foundations To Drive Blockchain Innovation [Ed: Any crank can pay the 'Linux' Foundation to promote its crap; the "Linux" brand is being reduced to rubble]

    The Cardano Foundation has joined the Linux Foundation. In an announcement released by the Cardano Foundation yesterday, Cardano stated that they have joined the Linux Foundation as a gold member. The announcement added that this makes the Cardano Foundation the only non-profit active at this level.

LF-funded fluff

  • The open source jobs are out there [Ed: Steven Vaughan-Nichols,found himself as a job as a marketer of Jim Zemlin, sub-contracted via ZDNet and working on Microsoft's payroll]

    The tech unemployment rate reached 2.1% in May. That was a slight drop from April, but with 623,627 tech job openings, that's still a year-over-year increase of 52%. As good as that is, The Linux Foundation and the trusted learning platform edX's 10th Annual Open Source Jobs Report have found that for open source savvy job seekers, the market is even better than that.

PR noise instead of news

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.

Red Hat Hires a Blind Software Engineer to Improve Accessibility on Linux Desktop

Accessibility on a Linux desktop is not one of the strongest points to highlight. However, GNOME, one of the best desktop environments, has managed to do better comparatively (I think). In a blog post by Christian Fredrik Schaller (Director for Desktop/Graphics, Red Hat), he mentions that they are making serious efforts to improve accessibility. Starting with Red Hat hiring Lukas Tyrychtr, who is a blind software engineer to lead the effort in improving Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Fedora Workstation in terms of accessibility. Read more
