EOF It looks like we’re at the end, folks. If all goes according to a plan we’d rather not have, the November issue of Linux Journal was our last.

Working with YouTube and Extracting Audio

In my last few articles, I've been exploring the capabilities of ImageMagick, showing that just because you're working on a command line doesn't mean you're stuck processing only text. more>>

How to Make Windows Better? Make It Chocolatey!

Once again, my friend and fellow Linux Journal club member Kris Occhipinti introduced me to an awesome bit of software. This time, it's an open-source project that brings Linux-like package management to Windows! Don't get me wrong; installing software on Windows isn't difficult, but it's definitely more cumbersome than with Linux. more>>

Say Hi to Subutai

I learned about Subutai from Philip Sheldrake of the Digital Life Collective (and much else) and thought it deserved attention here at Linux Journal, so I offered this space for that. Alex Karasulu did most of the writing, but it was a team effort with help from Jon 'maddog' Hall, Philip Sheldrake and Steve Taylor.—Doc Searls more>>

StarNet Communications Corp's FastX

WebAssembly browser technology is important for making the browser go beyond what JavaScript can do. StarNet Communications Corp says it is the first to plant a WebAssembly flag in the EDA space by integrating WebAssembly technology into its FastX remote Linux display solution. more>>

Heptio: Becoming a Cloud Native Organization

Becoming a Cloud Native Organization

As Linux has become the mainstay of Enterprise IT, it has become increasingly challenging to install, test and ultimately review properly new products built for large, scalable environments. Although Linux Journal publishes substantial, in-depth product reviews, we can’t possibly review every worthwhile product, especially in an arena like ours that grows and changes so fast. more>>

Gaming Like It's 1989

It's no secret that I love classic gaming. It seems like every other month, I write about an emulation project or some online version of a 1980s classic. The system that defined my youth was the Nintendo Entertainment System, or the NES. Its chunky rectangle controller and two-button setup may seem simple today, but back then, it was revolutionary. more>>

Linux Journal October 2017

Bash and Cats

If someone asked me how the internet stays running, I'd probably say something like, "Bash scripts and cat photos." Because really, those two things pretty much encompass the h more>>

Novelty and Outlier Detection

In my last few articles, I've looked at a number of ways machine learning can help make predictions. The basic idea is that you create a model using existing data and then ask that model to predict an outcome based on new data. more>>

Spend Bitcoin Anywhere

I've written about Bitcoin several times during the past few years, and I still love the technology. I am a little disturbed by the amount of electricity the Bitcoin blockchain consumes using dirty power sources, but that's another discussion altogether. more>>

Tracking Down Blips

In a previous article, I explained the process for setting up Cacti, which is a great program for graphing just about anything. One of the main things I graph is my internet usage. And, it's great information to have, until there is internet activity you can't explain. more>>

eCosCentric Limited's eCosPro

eCos—which means the "Embedded Configurable Operating System"—is an open-source RTOS for deeply embedded applications. Deployed in a diversity of markets and devices, eCos' popularity is a result of a variety of commercial and technical advantages over competing RTOS offerings. more>>

V. Anton Spraul's Think Like a Programmer, Python Edition

What is programming? Sure, it consists of syntax and the assembly of code, but it is essentially a means to solve problems. To study programming, then, is to study the art of problem solving, and a new book from V. Anton Spraul, Think Like a Programmer, Python Edition, is a guide to sharpening skills in both spheres. more>>
