In each of these two phases, the model for producing container systems evolved to adapt to the size and needs of the user community as well as the project and the growing contributor ecosystem.

Whether you're taking up programming for the first time, or learning your 50th language, you might ask, "What's the best way to learn to program?" I surveyed dozens of people who taught themselves to program in Rust as part of my OSCON talk in 2016, and asked the expert autodidacts what advice they would give to others for picking up a new language. I found that despite their diverse backgrounds, all of my interviewees shared five common approaches to building new programming skills.

Lessons Learned with Docker - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 06:30

I've been working with Docker on a semi-regular basis for a couple months now. I am the technical lead for a product that not only has the usual dev and test, but multiple user-facing deployments. These deployments may have 5 or 50 users (or more), and may be accessed over the internet by external users, or available​ only on a company intranet with no outside connectivity. Docker seemed to be a good way to streamline the deployments - anywhere Docker can be installed, our software stack can be installed as well.

"Open as Root/Administrator" Add Powerful Entry To Nautilus Context Menu

NoobsLab - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 06:06
Most users like to open files/folders as root directly from nautilus to do perform some actions using super powers, or simply want to edit system files directly from nautilus instead of command line interface. Nautilus offers ways to do that via extension or script, so we made it available for almost every supported version of Ubuntu 17.04/16.10/16.04/14.04/12.04 and other relevant Ubuntu based distributions, it is compatible with almost every Nautilus 3.4/3.6/3.8/3.10/3.12/3.14/3.16/3.18/3.20 versions. It is pretty easy to add this entry in the context menu, so you can make your Ubuntu experience better where you can easily access it with just a click.Ubuntu 17.04/16.10/16.04/14.04/Relevant Ubuntu derivatives
Ubuntu 12.04/Relevant Ubuntu derivatives
To install Open-as-Administrator in Ubuntu 17.04/16.10/16.04/14.04 Trusty/12.04 Precise open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in the terminal:
Terminal Commands:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/appssudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install open-as-administrator
After installation type this command to restart Nautilus:
Terminal Command:nautilus -q
>> If you are using previous Nautilus version you can use these commands, for Nautilus 3.4.x
If above method doesn't work for you then use the following commands:
Terminal Commands:cd && wget -O open-as-root.deb dpkg -i open-as-root.debsudo apt-get -f install && rm open-as-root.deb
