The first time a user encounters an application's documentation, it's not always with the user manual or online help. Often, that first encounter with documentation is an error message.Technical writers should be involved in writing error messages. It's an important, although often overlooked, part of the job. After all, error messages are documentation, albeit documentation that's embedded in the code.read more
The LAMP stack which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL/MariaDB and PHP/Python/Perl is a very popular combination of free and open-source software used to run millions of websites today.
Where Kodi really shines, however, is with Linux. More specifically, the best experience is when the media center is the star of the show. Luckily, there are some Linux distros that exist solely to run Kodi. One such popular distro is LibreELEC -- a fork of OpenELEC.
?Remix OS is a famous android based Linux distro that has gained a wide name since its launch. Almost everyone who loves android and uses Linux distro knows it. I myself use it almost on a daily basis because it helps me to download and use my favorites apps that are available only on Android.
Linux is found in many AUVs, such as the SeaBED and Bluefin-21, so we wondered if it might be involved in the JANUS, as well. As it turned out, one of the first JANUS acoustic modems was built around Linux code running on a BeagleBone Black.
If your job involves doing development or system administration in the cloud, you know how hard it can be to keep up with the quick pace of innovation. OpenStack is just one example of a project with lots of moving parts and a ton of amazing features that operators would benefit from becoming more familiar with.read more
NATO’s open source JANUS standard for underwater communications is first appearing in a BeagleBone-based acoustic modem running Linux. Open standards exist for all manner of wireless and terrestrial communications, but so far none has emerged for underwater communications. Below the waves, submarines, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), and undersea sensor stations use a hodgepodge of incompatible […]
Imagine I'm working on the front line of an open organization, and I'm committed to following principles like transparency, inclusivity, adaptability, collaboration, community, accountability, and commitment to guide that front-line work. A huge problem comes up. My fellow front-line workers and I can't handle it on our own, so we discuss the problem and decide that one of us has to take it to top management. I'm selected to do that.read more

In this article we are going to discuss about how to find number of CPU-Cores in Linux. Which will help us to find configuration of server.
I wrote a piece recently about why we are all distributed systems engineers now. To my surprise, lots of people objected to the observation that you have to test large distributed systems in production. It seems testing in production has gotten a bad rap—despite the fact that we all do it, all the time.Maybe we associate it with cowboy engineering. We hear "testing in production" and assume this means no unit tests, functional tests, or continuous integration.read more
Believe it or not, today's GNOME birthday, and not any birthday, as the popular desktop environment designed for GNU/Linux distributions celebrates 20 years of existence.
Conky remains one of the coolest ways of customizing your Linux desktop. Conky uses the X window system allowing you to monitor system variables such as CPU usage, swap space, temperatures, network download and upload speeds, time, calendar and much more.
The GNOME desktop turns 20 on August 15, and I'm so excited! Twenty years is a major milestone for any open source software project, especially a graphical desktop environment like GNOME that has to appeal to many different users. The 20th anniversary is definitely something to celebrate!Why is GNOME such a big deal? For me, it's because it represented a huge step forward in the Linux desktop. I installed my first Linux system in 1993. In the early days of Linux, the most prevalent graphical environment was TWM, the tabbed window manager. The modern desktop didn't exist yet.read more
For over a year now, one game has been the white whale for Linux gamers. That game, of course, is Overwatch. For many, it's a game that should have been simple. Every other Blizzard game has had a Mac port and worked fine under Wine. Overwatch has been that one glaring exception.
Over a year ago, I decided to build a software business that focused on custom web application development, startups, and unique website projects. I had built a very strong and talented team of people who were ambitious to help me start this company as their side gig. We called it Vampeo. We acquired a bunch of projects and started development while keeping our full-time day jobs.read more
