Putting GPUs to work with Kubernetes

Over the last 4 months I have blogged 4 times about the enablement of GPUs in Kubernetes. Each time I did so, I spent several days building and destroying clusters until it was just right, making the experience as fluid as possible for adventurous readers.It was not the easiest task as the environments were different (cloud, bare metal), the hardware was different (g2.xlarge have old K20s, p2 instances have K80s, I had 1060GTX at home but on consumer grade Intel NUC…). As a result, I also spent several hours supporting people to set up clusters. Usually with success, but I must admit some environments have been challenging.Thankfully the team at Canonical in charge of developing the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes have productized GPU integration and made it so easy to use that it would just be a shame not to talk about it.And as of course happiness never comes alone,

Apple makes iWork, iMovie & GarageBand apps free to all Mac & iOS users

 Apple quietly rolled out updated versions of its iWork, iMovie and GarageBand apps on Mac and iOS today, making them free for all customers on both platforms. Many customers already had free copies of these apps, as they came free with new Mac or iOS devices. The pricing change, however, removes the requirement to have bought new Apple hardware to get the apps for free. This expands the… Read More

Apple Makes iMovie, GarageBand, and iWork Apps for Mac and iOS Free for All Users

Apple today updated several of its Mac and iOS apps, making them available for all Mac and iOS users for free. From a report: iMovie, Numbers, Keynote, Pages, and GarageBand for both Mac and iOS devices have been updated and are now listed in the App Store for free. Previously, all of these apps were provided for free to customers who purchased a new Mac or iOS device, but now that purchase is not required to get the software. Many Apple customers were already likely eligible to download the software at no cost if they had made a device purchase in the last few years.

Facebook announces React Fiber, a rewrite of its React framework

 Facebook has completely rewritten React, its popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces. The company hasn’t previously talked about React Fiber, as the project is called, but it has actually been working on it for a while. In addition, it is also launching a rewrite of Relay, its framework for building data-heavy applications. Read More

Facebook launches React VR, a new JavaScript framework for building basic VR apps

 Facebook today announced the launch of React VR, a new JavaScript framework that lets developers build virtual reality experiences with the help of JavaScript. React VR takes its cues from Facebook’s existing React framework; just like with React for standard web apps, VR developers can now use the same declarative model to write apps for their 360-degree experiences.

Improving startup time in Atom with V8 snapshots

Over the last months, the Atom team has been working hard on improving one of the aspects of the editor our users care about the most: startup time. We will first provide the reader with some background about why reducing startup time is a non-trivial task, then illustrate the optimizations we have shipped in Atom 1.17 (currently in beta) and, finally, describe what other improvements to expect in the future.

For a long time, we’ve been wanting to have more control over Atom’s startup code. In November of last year, as part of this effort, we created an in-depth issue that carefully described where time was spent when opening an Atom window. We realized that that many of the operations happening during startup were redundant and that we could use the information we knew at build-time to minimize their cost.

V8 snapshots

V8 snapshots allow Electron applications to execute some arbitrary JavaScript code

Using SlideWiki for OpenCourseWare

Open source is about much more than free (as in beer and speech) software and hardware designs. It’s being harnessed to do things like bring free or affordable health care to undeveloped nations, and as the underpinning for free education.

The Screening Room

Collaborative teaching and learning can theoretically occur via a text wiki, but SlideWiki looks like it goes far beyond text wikis. This Google Hangout explains the rich feature set of SlideWiki, including machine translated versions of your digital presentations.

One of the key takeaways is that teachers can reuse content from SlideWiki, building about what other teachers and students have made. To stay in the loop on SlideWiki use and news, follow the SlideWiki account on Twitter.
The post Using SlideWiki for OpenCourseWare appeared first on FOSS Force.
