"La Linux Foundation ha avviato negli scorsi giorni un progetto davvero interessante: Android Programming for Beginners. Si tratta di un programma per imparare le basi della programmazione per il Robottino, destinato a tutti gli appassionati che vogliono cimentarsi non tanto e non solo nella creazione di applicazioni, ma interfacciarsi direttamente con il proprio dispositivo."
As we enter 2013 it’s only fitting to present a few predictions for the sector that’s become as important to established tech as technology itself to the makers of cars, consumer goods and services. With a little help from analysts, entrepreneurs and researchers, here are 10 forecasts on the big changes we’ll see for telecommunications and mobile technology in 2013.
As we noted last week, the Linux Foundation‘s list of major Linux-related accomplishments over the last year centered on advances in embedded and mobile platforms more than on traditional hardware. The Linux Foundation’s summary aside, however, there were plenty of openvsource achievements in other areas that are worth noting before the outgoing years passes us by.
It's that time of year, when media outlets and blogs everywhere round up the biggest events of 2012. In the world of open source, this year gave rise to many milestones. Here are some of the better look backs at 2012's Linux milestones, including a new video from The Linux Foundation on the heights Linux hit in 2012.

The major roadblock to the rapid adoption of technology in cars has always been vehicles’ long production cycles. But automakers are also guilty of hampering wide-scale innovation with their proprietary approach to infotainment systems and software, while dragging their feet on a collaborative, open source solution that would benefit consumers and car tech overall.
Not all Open Source foundations are created equal. Over the last 15 years that I've been actively engaged in open source activities I've seen more than my fair share of open source foundations go bust. I've also seen a few do really well.
