I get asked a lot by people who are interested in helping out open source projects, but have absolutely no programming skills. What can they do? Well, here’s a few ideas how non-programmers can contribute to open source projects.It is worth noting that it is best to contribute to software that you actually use yourself. That way you feel the benefits.
In 2009, our friends at Development Seed launched a pretty revolutionary concept—a completely open source intranet-in-a-box called Open Atrium. It was regarded as a giant leap forward for open source, for social collaboration, and for Drupal. Way back then (okay, it was just four years ago), an open source solution that could stand toe-to-toe with proprietary solutions like Basecamp and SharePoint was unprecedented. Open Atrium came on the scene and directly into the limelight because for the first time, a distribution of the open source Drupal code base felt really and truly like an all-in-one product.
KVM is a kernel-based hypervisor which grows quickly in maturity and popularity in the Linux server market. Red Hat officially dropped Xen in favor of KVM since RHEL 6. With KVM being officially supported by Red Hat, installing KVM on RedHat-based systems should be a breeze. In this tutorial, I will describe how to install and configure KVM and VirtManager on CentOS.

LEMP is a combination of the operating system and open-source software stack. The acronym LEMP is derived from first letters of Linux, Nginx HTTP Server, MySQL database, and PHP, Perl or Python. We already have shown you how to install LEMP and LAMP servers on many platforms.
While Python 3.0 was released at the end of 2008, due to its backwards-incompatibility, Python 2 is still the default Python implementation on Fedora. Fortunately, FESCo approved today that for Fedora 21 or 22 the switch will be made to Python 3.x by default.
It's been a while since last having major updates to share on Xiph.Org's Daala, the next-generation open-source video codec, but today there's a new technical overview update. The latest update on Daala covers prediction of chroma planes from luma.

Andy Schatz has broken into his own game. Not to steal something, though. While that would be true to theme of Monaco, it would also be somewhat self-defeating. Instead, he’s planted a new mini-campaign. It’s called Monaco Origins, because video games. In addition, you’ll also find Linux support, in preparation for SteamOS, and a zombie mode, possibly in preparation for Halloween. That or, again, because video games.
