Here they are, offered in no particular order.

  • 10 articles to become more data science savvy

    When LinkedIn released its third annual Emerging Jobs report, engineers everywhere said, "Amen." More than half the list consists of engineering roles, with new fields like robotics appearing for the first time.

    But data science had a strong showing as well. The role shows 37% annual growth, topping that aspect of the Emerging Jobs list for the third year in a row.

    Looking at the core skills a data scientist needs—including R, Python, and Apache Spark—it's easy to find overlaps with open source. So, we're not surprised that data science was one of the most popular topics at in 2019.

There's certainly less bugs in recent releases, KWin and the overall desktop is in better standing (though still improvements to be made such as showcased by the likes of KWin low-latency) with reliable Wayland support, and most would probably agree that the work out of this open-source project matured rather well in recent years with their focus on enhancing usability and other areas.

10 networking guides for Linux sysadmins

  • 10 networking guides for Linux sysadmins

    This was a great year for sysadmins interested in broadening their skills and making friends with their networking colleagues. As we closed out the last few months of the year, our talented writers shared their expertise throughout the layers of the TCP/IP stack. Network novices had the opportunity to learn basic troubleshooting tools, configure VLANs, befriend Network Manager, become comfortable with DNS fundamentals, and much more.

    Of course, we didn’t leave our advanced users hanging. Power users had the chance to familiarize themselves with the latest trends in software-defined networking, build their own VPN service, sniff the wire with tcpdump, and automate DNS configuration with Ansible. Knowing what goes on beyond your NIC isn’t just good for bonding with your networking colleagues; it’s also a great way to better understand the systems that you design, operate, and troubleshoot on a daily basis. Here’s a recap of our ten most popular networking articles

  • 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.
