The H Week - MySQL, Nagios, Linux and Ceph
The H week just gone has included the rise and fall of MySQL, the future for Nagios, the end of Firefox for Windows Mobile, the addition of the Ceph file system to Linux, maturing open source, DNS and SSL security issues, a scatological description of open source and much more.
In The H's featured content this week, we looked at the rise and fall of MySQL, talked with Nagios creator Ethan Galsted and the Kernel Log examined the addition of the Ceph file system to Linux. The H's Community Calendar for April, covering events of interest for the open source and development community in the UK, was published.
