Advance Your Open Source Skills with These Essential Articles, Videos, and More
Recent industry events have underscored the strength of open source in today’s computing landscape. With billions of dollars being spent, the power of open source development, collaboration, and organization seems unstoppable.
Toward that end, we recently provided an array of articles, videos, and other resources to meet you where you are on your open source journey and help you master the basics, improve your skills, or explore the broader ecosystem. Let’s take a look.
To start, we provided some Linux basics in our two-part series exploring Linux links:
Understanding Linux Links: Part 1 By Paul Brown - This beginning tutorial provides an overview of hard links, soft links, and when and how to use them.
Understanding Linux Links: Part 2 By Paul Brown - This tutorial follows up with a look at some linking quirks you should know about.
Then, we covered some basic tools for open source logging and monitoring:
Open Source Logging Tools for Linux By Jack Wallen - Here, Jack provides an overview of some tools to help you mine the depths of your log files.
4 Must-Have Tools for Monitoring Linux By Jack Wallen - Jack examines four tools you should consider for monitoring your desktops and servers.
We also took an in-depth look at the Introduction to Open Source, Git, and Linux training course from The Linux Foundation. This course presents a comprehensive learning path focused on development, Linux systems, and the Git revision control system. The $299 course is self-paced and comes with extensive and easily referenced learning materials. Get a preview of the course curriculum in this four-part series by Sam Dean:
As the default compiler for the Linux kernel, the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) delivers trusted, stable performance along with the additional extensions needed to correctly build the kernel. We took a closer look at this vital tool in this whitepaper:
