Manage multiple versions of Go with GVM

mar, 10/08/2019 - 09:00

Developed originally by Josh Bussdieker, GVM (like its Ruby counterpart, RVM) allows you to create a development environment for each project or group of projects, segregating the different Go versions and package dependencies to allow for more flexibility and prevent versioning issues.

7 Java tips for new developers

lun, 10/07/2019 - 09:03

Java is a versatile programming language used, in some way, in nearly every industry that touches a computer. Java's greatest power is that it runs in a Java Virtual Machine (JVM), a layer that translates Java code into bytecode compatible with your operating system. As long as a JVM exists for your operating system, whether that OS is on a server (or serverless, for that matter), desktop, laptop, mobile device, or embedded device, then a Java application can run on it.

9 essential GNU binutils tools

ven, 10/04/2019 - 09:01

Imagine not having access to a software's source code but still being able to understand how the software is implemented, find vulnerabilities in it, and—better yet—fix the bugs. All of this in binary form. It sounds like having superpowers, doesn't it?

You, too, can possess such superpowers, and the GNU binary utilities (binutils) are a good starting point. The GNU binutils are a collection of binary tools that are installed by default on all Linux distributions.

Sharing vs. free vs. public: The real definition of open source

jeu, 10/03/2019 - 09:02

When you hear the term open source, do you think this is synonymous with terms such as shareware, freeware, or public domain? If so, you are not alone. Many people, both within and without the technology industry, think of these terms as one and the same. This article illustrates how these terms are different and how open source is a transformative licensing and development model. Perhaps the best way to explore the differences will be to share my experience with software provided under one of the above models.

7 Bash history shortcuts you will actually use

mer, 10/02/2019 - 09:00
