First Impressions: Asus Tinkerboard and Docker

4 hours 28 min ago

I've spent many hours playing with both 32-bit and 64-bit ARM System-on-Chip (SoC) boards, so you may be wondering why I ordered another - the Asus Tinkerboard. Well here are my first impressions with the board as I try to get Docker and Kubernetes up and running.

Highlights

The Asus Tinkerboard looks like a Raspberry Pi and has a similar form-factor, but it's a much more powerful board than the Raspberry Pi with double the RAM and potentially 10x more Ethernet bandwidth available. You also get a heat-sink included and a warning that the board can run quite hot.

Strong Incident Response Starts with Careful Preparation

5 hours 38 min ago

Through working every day with organizations incident response (IR) teams, I am confronted with the entire spectrum of operational maturity. However, even in the companies with robust IR functions, the rapidly evolving threat landscape, constantly changing best practices, and surplus of available tools make it easy to overlook important steps during planning. As a result, by the time an incident occurs, its too late to improve their foundational procedures.

How Debuggers Really Work

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 05:06

A debugger is one of those pieces of software that most, if not every, developer uses at least once during their software engineering career, but how many of you know how they actually work? During my talk at linux.conf.au 2018 in Sydney, I will be talking about writing a debugger from scratch... in Rust!

In this article, the terms debugger/tracer are interchangeably. "Tracee" refers to the process being traced by the tracer.

Speech Recognition for Linux Gets a Little Closer

Thu, 01/18/2018 - 04:02

It has become commonplace to yell out commands to a little box and have it answer you. However, voice input for the desktop has never really gone mainstream. This is particularly slow for Linux users whose options are shockingly limited, although decent speech support is baked into recent versions of Windows and OS X Yosemite and beyond.

SPDX Clears Confusion Around Software Licenses

Wed, 01/17/2018 - 09:06

The Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) is a Linux Foundation project to help reduce the ambiguity of software by defining standards for reporting information. The license is one such piece of information. SPDX provides a format for listing the specific license variant and version that applies to a software package. With over 300 licenses, you're likely to find the one you use. The License List contains a human-friendly name, a short name, and a link to the full license text.

7 Open-Source Serverless Frameworks Providing Functions as a Service

Tue, 01/16/2018 - 07:06

With virtualization, organizations began to realize greater utilization of physical hardware. That trend continued with the cloud, as organizations began to get their machines into a pay-as-you-go service. Cloud computing further evolved when Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched its Lambda service in 2014, introducing a new paradigm in cloud computing that has become commonly referred to as serverless computing. In the serverless model, organizations pay for functions as a service without the need to pay for an always-on stateful, virtual machine.
