The Luminosity of Free Software, Episode 12

Published May 8 2013 via RSS

Here it comes: episode #12 of The Luminosity of Free Software. Tomorrow we will do the usual three-topics-and-questions dance on a Google+ hangout. The topics will include:

  • Emergence of the Linux Design Philosophy: The UNIX philosophy of "do one thing, do it well" and "everything is a file" are both being increasingly marginalized by new design concepts in Linux which put more emphasis on consistency, completeness and service architecture. As the effort and attention that UNIX enjoyed in past decades has shifted significantly onto Linux, this is an important development and I'll look at some examples of the new philosophy in action and share my thoughts on the upsides (and potential pitfalls).
  • haproxy: I had the pleasure of finally getting to know this interesting bit of software and was impressed by its power and flexibility. It bills itself as the "reliable, high-performance TCP/HTTP load balancer" but what I was really impressed with was the number of things you can do with it.
  • VTK: The visualization toolkit, by the same folk who bring us CMake, is an amazing visualization library and recently hooked a $2.4 million research grant. What makes VTK special, and is public funding a viable model for technology creation?
  • Q&A: If you have a burning question to ask, do so in the comments here or on G+ and I'll do my best to get to it in the show. Or you can ask live on irc ...
You can join live tomorrow on G+ or Youtube at 18:00 UTC, with live chat on irc.freenode.net in #luminosity, or catch the show later on my Youtube channel. See you there!
