Advanced Linux Commands Cheat Sheet is Here

Before I came to Red Hat, I used to work for a Red Hat partner as a consultant and architect. During that time, I was involved in quite a few situations where I had to help people move from one platform to another, most often from some flavor of Unix to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As Linux is the de facto standard platform for many development teams, it seemed to make sense to translate some of that experience into a document that can help others make the switch to Linux as a development platform. After the team got many requests for a more advanced version of our original Linux Commands Cheat Sheet we set off to create this document a couple of weeks ago and today we present the result: the Advanced Linux Command Cheat Sheet.

No cost. No hassle. Plenty of RHEL Developer Benefits

A year ago Red Hat announced the availability of a no-cost Red Hat Enterprise Linux developer subscription available as part of the Red Hat Developer Program. Offered as a self-supported, development-only subscription, this developer subscriptions provides you with a stable development platform for building enterprise applications – across cloud, physical, virtual, and container-centric infrastructures.

Adoption has been excellent since then, but I was prompted (aka nudged, voluntold) to remind “non users” (yes, some of you are still out there) what it is and how to get it. But I’ll also explain to “users” how to easily re-subscribe (it’s still free) if your 12-month subscription is up.  First, here’s what you “non-users” can get if you become “users”:

Containerizing open-vm-tools – Part 1: The Dockerfile and constructing a systemd unit file

While validating OpenShift Container Platform on a VMware platform the usage of Atomic OS was also a requirement.

Preparing CentOS 6.8 for Work

I came across Linux in 2005, it was Debian. Then followed a love affair with Ubuntu, for which in March 2009 I purchased a netbook Asus EeePC 1000. In 2010, I began to contribute to ALT Linux participating in the “School Project” and even became a basic256 package maintainer.

The last few years my EeePC with Ubuntu peacefully rested deep in my cupboard. Then there was a chance to clean off the dust. There was a task to get acquainted with CentOS Linux and test examples for my webinar “Apache Ant – quick start”.
