Companies are increasingly turning to cloud services to build and deliver their applications, but those that want to use an open source cloud may find it more difficult to set up and maintain. Service-providers such as UK-based DataCentred can more efficiently set up an enterprise cloud using open source software, at scale.

A few months ago, I met Chris Anderson and Andy Jensen, CEO and COO of 3D Robotics, one of the leading manufacturers of commercial drones. They were interested in creating a software foundation for their open source drone projects and wanted to pattern it after the Linux Foundation. We quickly realized we could provide the collaborative and participatory infrastructure needed to advance the ecosystem, and Dronecode was born.

The Linux Foundation today is announcing a new Collaborative Project, Open Platform for NFV, or OPNFV. It involves nearly 40 companies and has largely been driven by end users like AT&T, China Mobile, NTT DOCOMO, Telecom Italia and Vodafone, among others. Together this community aims to build a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform to accelerate Network Function Virtualization.

Every year, the Linux Kernel Summit brings together about 100 core kernel developers and subsystem maintainers to discuss issues of importance to the development community as a whole.  The 2014 Summit, held August 18-20 in Chicago (just before LinuxCon North America) covered a wide range of topics and made a number of decisions.  But there is one outcome from this event that merits especially wide attention: the development community is getting better at what it does.

You have likely heard by now about the "Heartbleed" SSL vulnerability (CVE-2014-0160). Put simply from the perspective of a user of the Internet, this vulnerability means that for the last two years, any secure "your-browser-shows-a-lock" site you went to might have not really been secure, and an attacker could have been intercepting your passwords or sensitive data just like they can on "regular" non-SSL sites.

Welcome to the second installment of the "PGP Web of Trust" series. In this part we'll explore "Trusted Introducers" and "Meta-Introducers" in cryptography; how PGP implements "Meta-Introducers"; how PGP trust-signatures work in practice; and what keyservers are and how to use one to keep track of people's public keys.

Blog post by Mike Dolan, director of members services, The Linux Foundation

There are many open source software projects out there today and any list of open source licenses alone shows you how much project diversity is out there. Just take a look at Github, Apache, Eclipse or The Linux Foundation and you’ll find thousands of developers collaborating on the software that literally runs the world.

With an average number of 315 weddings per day, Las Vegas definitely takes a top spot on the list of locations for forging bonds. Ever since Ford CEO Alan Mulally's keynote at CES 2010 the automotive industry has come back to Sin City in early January for dates with consumer technologies. CES 2014 was no different except maybe that this time cars have taken center stage at the annual event. One could claim that the two industries have finally exchanged rings.
