Well here's an unexpected surprise. A lawsuit brought by the world's largest patent troll, Intellectual Ventures, and handled on appeal (as are all patent cases), by the notoriously awful Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) may have actually killed off software patents. Really. ... But the part that has everyone chattering is the concurring opinion by Judge Haldane Mayer, that says it's time to face facts: Alice killed software patents. And Mayer is not some newcomer.
Qt 5.8 will include IoT-oriented “Qt Lite” technology that enables fine-grained configuration and supports small-footprint IoT gizmos without OpenGL.

The Docker Engine and dockerfiles have helped to usher in a new container revolution in how applications are packaged and run. Now as container Dockerworkloads increasingly enter into full-scale production deployments, the challenge is around scale-out and management. With Docker 1.12, Docker first integrated its Swarm clustering engine and now the new InfraKit toolkit will help scale-out efforts even further.

This tutorial explains how to configure network bonding on Linux server. Before I start, let me explain what network bonding is and what it does. In a Windows environment, network bonding is called network teaming, this is a feature that helps any server architecture to provide high availability and failover in scenarios were one of the main ethernet cable has a malfunction or is misconfigured.
Technology is personal. We don’t think of it that way, because it’s comprised of impersonal things, like hardware and programming code, but if you think about it, our relationship to our technology is downright intimate. People type their secrets into computers and sleep next to phones and tablets. But too often, we don’t treat technology as something personal. Too often, it’s treated as something inevitable over which we have no control.
For many years AT&T has been on the forefront of virtualizing a Tier 1 carrier network. They’ve done so in a very open fashion and are actively participating in, and driving, many open sources initiatives.

The development team of PVS-Studio static code analyser started Linux support.
When I was in college, software development seemed much more difficult. I went to school for electrical engineering, so many of the courses dealt with programming tiny computers in assembly language. There were complicated toolchains, expensive compilers, and thousand-page manuals that described how to set the registers so that these chips would even operate. read more
Not by much and we know mass enterprise adoption is still to come Microsoft may have used its Ignite conference to trumpet Windows 10 now running on 400 million devices, but the operating system's market share went backwards in September according to two of three traffic-watchers we track each month.…
When I was 17 years old, I started using Linux because I wanted a desktop that resembled my brother-in-law's Gentoo laptop, which used the KDE environment. Instead, I got the now-nostalgic brown and orange GNOME 2 environment because I'd installed Ubuntu. (Ubuntu has since changed its color palette.) read more
After nearly exactly two months, Linus Torvalds released kernel 4.8 into the wild on Sunday, October 2nd. Torvalds dubbed 4.8 Psychotic Stoned Sheep, probably inspired by the news that a flock of woolly ruminants ate some abandoned cannabis and, high as kites, run amok in rural Wales, striking terror into the hearts of the locals.
For many of us, our calendar is our lifeblood. Without it, we would be lost, perhaps both literally and figuratively. While some people can get away with a wall calendar or a paper day planner to organize their schedule, a whole lot of us have turned over the process of managing time allotments to a digital calendar. In truth, most of us are juggling quite a few calendars from both our work and personal lives, and often a few other organizations that we're involved with, including anything from non-profits to tech meetups to social clubs. read more
The forced upgrade mentality now prevalent at Microsoft could be the company's undoing.
Unknown players – probably a nation state – are probing the defenses of the core infrastructure of the internet. How worried should we be?
