  • 3 Advantages of Participating in Open Source Projects

    Open-source software (OSS) is more of a household name in 2022 than ever before. Consumers – i.e., those not in tech – are exposed to OSS with more regularity via content management systems, like Drupal, and car, laptop and smartwatch uses supported by Linux. But once you dive into the technology community, specifically the community of the developer, the value of OSS is undeniable. Developers and engineers love the web, want it to succeed, and have a vested interest in building technologies that serve their community’s goals.

    OSS projects span a wide list of technology development today from analytics to development and DevOps, to machine learning, website development, and more. In understanding the breadth of development, what exactly is the draw to contribute to the broad community? In other words, what are the advantages of participating in open source projects?

  • Down in the Goldman Sachs IT engine room, old school and open source rub shoulders

    In an overlooked yet insightful blog the bank recently detailed the critical OSS tool it has deployed to help tackle query latency. (Goldman Sachs has also spun up a range of its own open source tools like database deployment software Obevo, open sourced under an Apache 2.0 license in 2017 to help developers manage database schema definitions for new and existing sytems under a a standard software development lifecycle or SDLC approach.)

  • Why Do Enterprises Use and Contribute to Open Source Software

    When people find out I work at the Linux Foundation they invariably ask what we do? Sometimes it is couched around the question, As in the Linux operating system? I explain open source software and try to capture the worldwide impact into 20 seconds before I lose their attention. If they happen to stick around for more, we often dig into the question, Why would enterprises want to participate in open source software projects or use open source software? The reality is – they do, whether they know it or not. And the reality is thousands of companies donate their code to open source projects and invest time and resources helping to further develop and improve open source software.

  • 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.
