We recently interviewed Riley Brandt on how he uses Fedora. This is part of a series on the Fedora Magazine. Riley Brandt uses a Mac running OS X and Adobe for work at a university in western Canada. “The job can be really amazing at times. I’ve watched a doctor perform brain surgery using a robotic arm, been in a lab used for quantum teleportation, met Olympic athletes, and taken photos from a helicopter.” However, for his personal photography work he uses Fedora and FOSS software to process and organize his photographs.
We need more female role models in tech. We need to hear your experiences, your lessons, your failures and your successes. We need to hear them because you can never be sure who you’ll influence and whose life you’ll change.

Mistral’s “RZ/G1E SMARC” module runs Yocto Linux on the 1GHz, dual -A7 Renesas RZ-G1E SoC with 4GB eMMC, Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, and an optional dev kit. Mistral’s RZ/G1E SMARC module follows iWave’s iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven in tapping the Renesas RZ/G1 SoC, but in this case it’s the 1GHz, dual-core Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E instead of the 1.5GHz dual Cortex-A15 RZG1M and RZ/G1N.
For any Xfce gurus who may have tried to emulate the Unity desktop look, or maybe just wanted to save a bit of screen real estate, this may not be new to you. For anyone else though, here's a tip on this neat functionality.
Three letters guide the way I work: GSD—get stuff done. Over the years, I'm managed to blend concepts like feedback loops (from lean methodologies) and iterative improvement (from Agile) into my everyday work habits so I can better GSD (if I can use that as a verb). This means being extremely efficient with my time: outlining clear, discrete goals; checking completed items off a master list; and advancing projects forward iteratively and constantly. But can someone still GSD while defaulting to open? Or is this when getting stuff done comes to a grinding halt? read more

In late 2015, Compulab introduced one of the first computer-on-modules built around NXP’s power-sipping, Cortex-A7-based i.MX7 with its SODIMM-style CL-SOM-iMX7, but it was quickly eclipsed in a race […]

But, they're really not new, they're different from SQL databases, and they have different use cases. NoSQL is not going to make world peace or give you your own private holodeck but, aside from those deficiencies, it is pretty cool.
