The microservices architecture is far from a new trend; it's generally accepted as a better way to build apps these days. The common way to build apps was, until a few years ago, the monolithic approach—which was, if you look at it from a functional perspective, basically one deployment unit that does everything. Monolithic apps are good for small scale teams and projects, but when you need something that has a larger scale and involves many teams, it starts to become problematic. It's much harder to make changes, as the code base becomes bigger and more people make changes to it.read more

Let’s face it, if you’re a viewer of the TV show or a reader of the books or both, you’ve probably thought you could do much better than the characters in the story, right? Well, now we’re all going to get our chance to rise or fall in Westeros. I wonder how many of us will succeed and join the small council, or fail and end up dead and rotting high above the gates of Casterly Rock?

But the real reason behind Fedora 21’s success? It’s an odd-numbered release. Historically, the odd-numbered releases have always been better than the even-numbered ones. Don’t ask me why. There’s no documentation or detailed research to prove why it happens this way. It’s just a physical law of the universe.

One of the most important features of the open source development community is its ability to self-correct, even if it takes a very long time. A number of issues in X servers have been corrected recently, and some of them were actually very old. The record holder is a bug introduced back in 1987.

Mozilla is planning to add support for Certificate Transparency checks in Firefox in the near future, but the company says that the feature won’t be turned on by default at first. Certificate Transparency is a proposal from engineers at Google that would help resolve some of the issues with certificate authorities, fraudulent certificates and stolen certificates. The framework would provide a public log of every certificate that’s issued by compliant CAs and also would provide proof to users’ browsers when each certificate is presented. Google is planning to implement CT in Chrome, and now Mozilla officials say that the company will implement in Firefox, but the process will be a gradual one.

From an application deployment perspective, applications for Snappy Ubuntu are packaged as "snaps," which provides a mechanism to help ensure package authenticity and security."Not only will users be able to validate what they downloaded is exactly what they wanted, they will also be able to validate that the current state on disk matches that at any time," Kirkland said. "The tools for this are not yet included, but are a critical piece of our security design and will become available during our beta program."
