TL;DR Of course we have Python! You just need to specify whether you want Python 3 or 2 as we didn’t want to set a default. Give
yum install python3 and/or
yum install python2 a try. Or, if you want to see what packages we recommend, use
yum install @python36 or
yum install @python27. Read on for why.

I think Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is the most developer-friendly Red Hat Enterprise Linux that we’ve delivered, and I hope you agree. Let’s get down to business, or rather coding, so you can see for yourself. You can read the Red Hat corporate press release.
For this article, I’ll quickly recap Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 features (architecture, containers), introduce the very new and cool Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI), and provide a handy list of developer resources to get you started on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Since Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform was first released, Red Hat Middleware products were provided to deploy on it and help developers to build more complex solutions. Messaging Brokers are a very important piece in most new application architectures, such as microservices, event sourcing, and CQRS. Red Hat JBoss AMQ was provided from the beginning to deploy Messaging Brokers on Red Hat OpenShift easily.

Here and elsewhere, we get a lot of questions about post-Docker container tools in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 beta. Tools like podman, buildah, and skopeo enable you to create and manage rootless containers, which are containers that don’t require root access to be built and deployed. To help you master the basics, we’re happy to offer a new podman basics cheat sheet.

SystemTap has extensive libraries called tapsets that allow developers to instrument various aspects of the kernel’s operation. SystemTap allows the use of wildcards to instrument multiple locations in particular subsystems. SystemTap has to perform a significant amount of work to create instrumentation for each of the places being probed. This overhead is particularly apparent when using the wildcards for the system call tapset that contains hundreds of entries (
syscall.*.return). For some subsets of data collection, replacing the wildcard-matched syscall probes in SystemTap scripts with the
kernel.trace("sys_enter") and the
kernel.trace("sys_exit") probe will produce smaller instrumentation modules that compile and start up more quickly. In this article, I’ll show a few examples of how this works.
