D-Link and the GPL

Recently my router died and to get netflix flowing again, I went out and got the cheapest router I could find in the vicinity. I ended up with a D-Link DIR-842 on discount for 499 SEK. In the box, I discovered this: It tells me to go to D-Link’s page for GPL licensed software to […]

Tooting

As web 3.0 is the next big thing – and I really like the idea – I decided to give mastodon as spin (second time around). Feel free to follow me – I’m @e8johan@mastodon.technology. As I’m just getting started, I’m exploring this whole space a bit. I picked the instance to join (mastodon.technology) based on […]

New adventures – old challenges

Times pass and we all change. I’ve realized that I’ve gone from mostly coding at work, to almost not coding at all (I reflect on this in the Under utveckling pod – Swedish only). I’ve also realized that what I do in automotive has a much wider application (see my fosdem talk on this). Thus, […]

This year, we have the broadest program yet. 25 speakers talking about everything from community policies, GPU isolation, blockchain, historical KDE software, retro computers, IoT, Android, SailfishOS, bug triaging, crowd funding, […]

foss-north – the count down

Every year we try to seed the foss-north event with a set of key speakers. This year, one of our seed speakers is Steven Goldfarb from the ATLAS project at CERN. He will take us on a journey from the vastness of the universe, to the tiniest particles we can observe – all possible through […]

foss-north – the count down

Flashback time! At last year’s foss-north we had a great talk by Jeff Campbell from Scrum Beers and Brewing Agile. He spoke about actionable agile tools – i.e. how to improve the way your agile team works. You can see the recording right here (you might have to click the link if your aggregator hides […]

foss-north – the count down

Flashback time! At last year’s foss-north we had a great talk by the Zifra team. They spoke about their encryption solution, enabling journalists and other people having to handle sensitive data to make their digital information inaccessible while in an exposed location.
