  • The Zephyr Project Welcomes Adafruit Industries to its Open Source Ecosystem
  • BMW open software platform for smart working expands

    The OMP was founded last year under the umbrella of the Joint Development Foundation, which is part of the Linux Foundation. Original members The BMW Group, and Microsoft have welcomed Anheuser-Busch InBev (AbInBev), Bosch Group, and ZF Friedrichshafen AG, as steering committee members. The OMP steering committee has approved a number of working groups to focus on core areas important to the industry, including IoT connectivity, semantic data models, Industrial IoT reference architecture, and core services for ATS (autonomous transport systems).

  • CDF Adopts Screwdriver to Create Containerized Workflows

    Dan Lopez, program manager for the CDF, says the consortium, an arm of the Linux Foundation. is still working out the precise relationship between the various projects. It’s unclear, for example, where the capabilities of one of the Jenkins platforms begins and ends compared to Spinnaker.


    Regardless of how open source CI/CD platforms evolve in the months and years ahead, it’s clear some level of convergence is underway. Workflows built using containers should enable DevOps teams to build workflows that can be deployed on both existing and emerging DevOps platforms. That’s critical because, at a time when adoption of DevOps remains uneven, IT organizations don’t want to feel that going down one path versus another will lock them into a specific platform.

  • Can Open Source Technology Help Meet Decarbonization Goals? [Ed: This article repeats intentional lies from Microsoft intended to distract from its close connection to oil giants]

    In an exclusive interview with Shuli Goodman, Executive Director at LF Energy, an initiative hosted by Linux Foundation.


    Renewable energy is variable, meaning a cloud can pass and shade a PV panel, or the wind may not blow, and you won’t be able to create energy. This is different from a coal fire plant, which is constantly generating as long as you feed the plant. So for companies to feel comfortable to switch to renewable energy, energy providers are going to require the ability to move electrons from places that have the energy to places that don’t and enable network operators to “orchestrate” or “shape energy.”

    The only way to do this is by enabling a digital supply-chain – through a communication infrastructure that networks electrons through meta-data – and by creating the market mechanisms that shift supply and demand to meet the new characteristics of a decarbonized grid.

    Open source creates a community where companies collaborate and share resources to develop the foundations of these complex processes. This ensures they don’t waste time attempting to recreate and support redundant technology and processes that could ultimately benefit the entire industry if they were harmonized into a shared, de facto code implementation. If we join forces and minimize fragmentation, the industry can better achieve innovation — in this case, the technology needed to better integrate and utilize renewable energy — much more quickly than trying to work out the problems by themselves.

Samsung, Red Hat to Work on Linux Drivers for Future Tech

The metaverse is expected to uproot system design as we know it, and Samsung is one of many hardware vendors re-imagining data center infrastructure in preparation for a parallel 3D world. Samsung is working on new memory technologies that provide faster bandwidth inside hardware for data to travel between CPUs, storage and other computing resources. The company also announced it was partnering with Red Hat to ensure these technologies have Linux compatibility. Read more

  • 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.
