  • What's the average age of a Linux sysadmin? [Ed: Unbelievably unscientific survey]

    There's probably no question that causes some people as much anxiety as the "How old are you?" query. Age can be used in many ways—some negative and some positive. Our poll question came from a community member—one of you. It's a good question. What is the average age of an Enable Sysadmin reader? Do you have any guesses? The poll is open and non-identifying, which means that everyone can see the results but no individual participant can be identified from the poll results.

  • AI/ML workloads in containers: 6 things to know

    Two of today’s big IT trends, AI/ML and containers, have become part of the same conversation at many organizations. They’re increasingly paired together, as teams look for better ways to manage their Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning workloads – enabled by a growing menu of commercial and open source technologies for doing so.

    "Tooling and processes for running machine learning at scale in containers has improved significantly over the past few years.”
    “The best news for IT leaders is that tooling and processes for running machine learning at scale in containers has improved significantly over the past few years,” says Blair Hanley Frank, enterprise technology analyst at ISG. “There is no shortage of available open source tooling, commercial products, and tutorials to help data scientists and IT teams get these systems up and running.”

  • Fedora Community Blog: A revamp of our beloved Fedora characters

    If you’ve been hanging around the Fedora Design team lately—or dropped by one of our recent Fedora Design Team Live Sessions —you may be aware of a very cool artwork project one of our interns has been working on. Lauryn Dake has done a revamp of the character designs for the entire cast of Fedora characters, including the Beefy Miracle, panda, and badges badger!

    The idea here is our current character artwork is a bit dis-jointed. For example, the pandas in our badge system are drawn in a very different style than the badger, and the original Beefy Miracle artwork is in yet another older style. We want to give our characters all a fresher, more expressive look. Also, this allows them to hang together more cohesively under the same style / approach.

  • How Red Hat is evolving to keep the world connected

    The world is changing rapidly - and the critical importance of connection has never been more clear. Last year, many organizations were forced to rethink their day-to-day operations as workforces across the globe went remote. Industry buzzwords like "digital transformation" that may have been five year plans became overnight priorities for organizations across the board. The communications industry was, and continues to be, poised to help industries tackle many of these enormous challenges.

  • IT careers: How to recruit the class of 2021

    Recent college graduates have overcome the most complicated university experience of the last 50 years, as their final two years were marked by uncertainty, distanced or hybrid learning, and minimal access to professors and classmates.

    For incoming IT professionals, close contact with mentors is often an important element of the college experience, as well as the first step in networking to begin a career in the tech industry. The challenges presented by COVID-19 also led to widespread cancellations of internships, often a vital experience for those entering the IT field.

    As the class of 2021 enters the job market, enterprises will be challenged to make the most out of a new normal for IT hiring: Not only will the interview process itself look different, but the resumes of recent graduates and their priorities in seeking an employer will not look the same as pre-COVID. In place of a series of internships, graduates will need to demonstrate how they guided their own learning and developed new skills over the past 18 months. Likewise, employers will need to communicate how the pandemic changed their operations, and what impact that will have on the experience for new hires.

  • Planning the CentOS 8 endgame

    July 14, 2021
    CentOS 8 is reaching its end of life (EOL) at the end of 2021, though it was originally slated to be supported until 2029. That change was announced last December, but it may still come as a surprise to some, perhaps many, of the users of the distribution. While the systems running CentOS 8 will continue to do so, early next year they will stop getting security (and other) updates. The CentOS project sees CentOS Stream as a viable alternative, but users may not agree—should the project simply leave CentOS 8 systems as ticking time bombs in 2022 and beyond?

    A discussion of the CentOS 8 EOL was kicked off by Rich Bowen in a post to the CentOS-devel mailing list. He noted that there will be more questions about the EOL process as that date approaches, so he wants "to make sure we have clear documentation, prominently displayed, that sets expectations". He outlined the process of archiving CentOS 8 to vault.centos.org and wondered if there were changes that should be made because this particular EOL event is rather different.

  • 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.

  • 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.
