  • Red Hat to teach Kubernetes by Example

    In an effort to bring Kubernetes to more users, Red Hat is providing free online Kubernetes-focused tutorials. The company announced improvements to its Kubernetes by Example site at its Red Hat Summit today. In addition to tutorials, the company will provide news, community interaction and a hands-on approach to learning.

    “Safe to say, Kubernetes plays a critical role in delivering value to your customers today and enabling you to adapt tomorrow. Keeping your skills sharp and staying up-to-date on developments around this fast-moving technology are paramount,” Mithun Dhar, vice president and general manager of Developer Tools and Programs at Red Hat, wrote in a post.

  • Open Source Stories - Lowering barriers in higher education

    The high cost of higher education is no secret. What many outside the industry don’t see is the role expensive textbooks and course materials play in driving that cost up. Our latest film introduces you to the scholars and students who are bringing affordable, open alternatives to campus.

  • Command Line Heroes season 7, episode 7

    1995 laid the groundwork for a truly global World Wide Web, but not every country took the same path to connecting to the internet. Some resisted, wanting to create their own version. Others had to fight for access, not wanting to be left behind. And while we made huge strides in connecting the world in those early years, we still have a long way to go.

  • Elana Hashman: I'm hosting a Bug Scrub for Kubernetes SIG Node [Ed: IBM employees choose only proprietary software for discussions ("Slack and Zoom") while running petitions to "REMOVE STALLMAN" from the FSF, which he founded]

    It's been a long while since I last hosted a BSP, but 'tis the season.

    Kubernetes SIG Node will be holding a bug scrub on June 24-25, and this is a great opportunity for you to get involved if you're interested in contributing to Kubernetes or SIG Node!

    We will be hosting a global event with region captains for all timezones. I am one of the NASA captains (~17:00-01:00 UTC) and I'll be leading the kickoff. We will be working on Slack and Zoom. I hope you'll be able to drop in!

  • Red Hat Coffee Hour [Ed: IBM opposes RMS but loves Apple]

    The Red Hat® Coffee Hour series is a bi-weekly videocast featuring luminaries from technology, society and the world of STEM. Topics for discussion will include governmental and societal impacts of technology, open source in Sci/Tech/Med., as well as the role of technology and work/life balance.

    Every startup has a story - often a technologist and a marketing genius in a garage, trying to make a mark on the world. The Apple Computer story is on a whole other level. In the early 70’s, Steve “The Woz” Wozniak and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs were spending time hanging out in a garage in Silicon Valley, about to embark on a journey that continues to change the way the world consumes technology. Adam Clater, Chief Architect at Red Hat and The Woz will discuss the early days of technology and home brew computing - how sharing designs and learning within those communities as well as his work with HP and Atari lead to the formation of what has become the most valuable company in the world - Apple Computer.

  • Fedora Stakeholders Back To Discussing Raising x86_64 Requirements Or Using Glibc HWCAPS - Phoronix

    While Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 is dropping support for older x86_64 CPUs by raising the baseline requirement to "x86_64-v2" that roughly correlates to Intel Nehalem era processors and newer, so far Fedora has not changed its default. There was a proposal shot down last year for raising the x86_64 microarchitecture feature level while now that discussion has been restarted or alternatively making use of Glibc's HWCAPS facility for allowing run-time detection and loading of optimized libraries.

    The discussion over whether Fedora should raise its x86_64 microarchitecture feature level requirement or make use of Glibc HWCAPS has been restarted on their mailing list. The talk stems from SUSE Linux Enterprise / openSUSE Leap pursuing x86_64-v2 optimized libraries by way of Glibc-HWCAPS for their next point release / service pack.

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    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.
