SYSLAB.COM Talks at the Plone Conference 2016 in Boston

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , News

Exciting keynotes, demos and talks are the very heart of the Plone Conference. SYSLAB.COM will also talk at the Conference in Boston and present our latest software developments and projects.

This year talks and demos centered around the digital experience age are of particular interest. One key topic of the conference will be to explore the evolution of Plone and the Python Web ecosystem that it is a part of. A variety of Python technologies will thereby be covered in addition to Plone.

Quaive – The Plone Intranet (Guido Stevens)

Guido Stevens will among other do a demo on the latest developments within Quaive – the Plone Intranet. He also talks about filter bubbles, riffing between knowledge management theory, agile methodologies, the cold war and more.

Plone.patternslib (Wolfgang Thomas)

Wolfgang Thomas from SYSLAB.COM will give a talk about how to add richer enteraction to a website with plone.patternslib. The talk will focus on how to use various Patterns in a stock Plone 5 site, based on real-world examples, such as:

  • automatically submitting a form on user input
  • using selection fields with auto-suggestion
  • showing / hiding parts of a form depending on previous input
  • updating only parts of your page with injection

Parallel to that, we’ll take a look at the Patternslib documentation for the Patterns we use, so that we can see what options are available to us. And as an outlook for inspiration, we’ll check some advanced combinations of Patterns used in Quaive (aka Plone Intranet).

Plones future (Eric Steele)

Plone´s esteemed release manager Eric Steele will be talking about the current Plone developments like Rest API and the new approach to tiled layouts, enabling easy support to digital experiences.

Ubuntu’s new take on Kubernetes

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Canonical has looked into its cloud and container crystal ball — and they see Kubernetes.

The open-source, cloud/container DevOps tool Kubernetes has just launched a major new release: Kubernetes 1.4. At the same time,Canonical, Ubuntu Linux’s parent company, is embracing Kubernetes with its own Enterprise Kubernetes take. Kubernetes is a container DevOps tool that was pioneered by Google.

Google used it to manage its own container technology, lmctfy (Let Me Contain That For You). You, in turn, used this every time you ran any Google program, such as Search, Gmail, Google Docs, or whatever. Google open-sourced Kubernetes, and it’s now available on Linux-based clouds and Microsoft Azure.

Kubernetes 1.4: One DevOps tool to rule all the containers

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

There are other DevOps programs for container management, but Kubernetes is quickly becoming the best of them all.

Containers, such as Docker, are IT’s future. The program that will manage these containers is still an open question. The way things are developing, Google’s open-source Kubernetes has to be considered the front runner. It’s being adopted by more and more Linux distributions, container technology’s primary platform. Canonical, Red Hat, and SUSE are all betting Kubernetes will be containers‘ DevOps future.

Fedora 26 Linux OS to Ship with OpenSSL 1.1.0 by Default for Better Security

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Fedora Program Manager Jan Kurik informs the Fedora Linux community about a new system-wide change for the upcoming Fedora 26 operating system, namely the addition of the OpenSSL 1.1.0 libraries by default.

It appears that current Fedora Linux releases ship with OpenSSL 1.0.2h, which has been patched with the latest security fixes, but the team decided it was time to upgrade the OpenSSL libraries (libssl and libcrypto) to a newer, more advanced branch. Therefore, Fedora 26 Linux will ship with OpenSSL 1.1.0 by default, which will have a massive impact on the overall stability and security of the OS.

What’s really going on with Microsoft, Lenovo and Linux

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Microsoft isn’t anti-Linux anymore and Lenovo is just lazy when it comes to supporting the Linux desktop on its newest Yoga Ultra.

Recently, a Lenovo user found it impossible to install Linux on his Signature Edition Lenovo Yoga 900 ISK 2 UltraBook. That was because its solid-state drive (SSD) was locked in an unsupported proprietary RAID mode. A Lenovo „product expert“ claimed this was because Microsoft insisted Lenovo not support Linux on Signature Edition PCs. That’s simply not true.

Open source projects for the Internet of Things, from A to Z

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

This guide to 21 open source projects for IoT ranges from standards organizations to open source frameworks and dev tools.

The Internet of Things market is fragmented, amorphous, and continually changing, and its very nature requires more than the usual attention to interoperability. It’s not surprising then, that open source has done quite well here — customers are hesitant to bet their IoT future on a proprietary platform that may fade or become difficult to customize and interconnect.

Abigail Cabunoc Mayes: How to Bring Open Source to a Closed Community

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

One of the things we took away from this talk is that open source can be fun — and that’s a good thing.

Abigail Cabunoc Mayes, who works for the Mozilla Foundation as the lead developer for open source engagement, recently gave a lively talk explaining open source inclusion practices. View this engaging video here (on the website).

You’ll learn lots of useful tips, as well as being introduced to a wide array of people working on open source projects. I’m following twenty new people on Twitter as a result of watching this talk — and my head is now spinning — in a very positive way. Love those folks in Detroit working on open source social justice projects.

Oracle pledges continued support for Java and NetBeans

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Java experts have questioned Oracle’s support for Java, but Oracle swears it’s fully behind Java Enterprise Edition and NetBeans.

Last week, Oracle disowned NetBeans. The company announced it was turning its Java-based NetBeans over to the Apache Software Foundation. Now, Oracle is changing its tune on both NetBeans and Java Enterprise Edition (JEE). Oh, don’t get me wrong. Oracle still doesn’t want to manage NetBeans. But Oracle claims it’s not just dumping the NetBeans integrated developer environment (IDE) code.

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein

Linus Torvalds just made his regular Sunday announcement to inform the community about the availability of the seventh and last Release Candidate (RC) development build of the forthcoming Linux 4.8 kernel series.

According to Linus Torvalds, Linux kernel 4.8 Release Candidate 7 is once again bigger in patches than he was expected. Last week, we reported that things are calming down and that this series will be a normal one with seven RCs, but it now looks like it won’t happen, and there should be one more RC released next week, September 25, 2016.
