Linux Jobs Are in Demand

If you’re a Linux guy, this is good news. Linux jobs are in high demand. From Computerworld.

If you’re an open-source expert, the job market is your oyster – the Linux Foundation released a report this week that says that employees with Linux skills are in high demand, with hiring managers working hard to bring them in.

According to the survey, the prevalence of open-source in the cloud and other important areas of business technology is helping to push the demand for Linux- and open-source-savvy workers higher. Forty-two percent of respondents said that CloudStack or OpenStack experience would be a valuable addition to a resume, and 19% said the same about open-source SDN skills.

Raspberry Pi 2 with Quad CPU

The next-gen Raspberry Pi 2 runs on a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU with 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM. It offers six times faster and two times the memory of its predecessor. Raspberry Pi 2 also looks identical to Raspberry Pi 1. The connectors on the Raspberry Pi 2 are in the same place and have the same functionality, so existing users will find it easy to make the transition. Also, the board can still be run from a 5V micro-USB power adapter. All for $35, a bargain.
