Net Neutrality – A Day of Action 

Facebook - Mié, 07/12/2017 - 20:40

Today, people and companies across the country are participating in a day of action to fight for net neutrality. Facebook is proud to be a part of it.

Net neutrality means a free and open internet for everyone. It ensures that internet service providers are not allowed to block or throttle internet traffic or discriminate against certain content.

The FCC has existing rules in place to protect net neutrality and ensure that anyone with an internet connection has a fair shot at turning an idea into something that can change the world. That would change if internet providers were allowed to decide what content its customers could access, or charge customers more to access the websites and services of their choice.

The FCC’s current rules help prevent this from happening. We strongly support those rules, but the FCC’s new proposal could undo those protections. That’s why Facebook supports strong net neutrality rules that will keep the internet free and open.

We’re open to working with anyone, including members of Congress, on a solution that will preserve strong net neutrality protections. We hope you join us in this fight. To learn more about the day of action visit:  iadayofaction.org.

Live From Facebook Spaces: A New Way to Share VR With Friends

Facebook - Mié, 07/12/2017 - 18:00

By Mike Booth, Head of Product Management, Facebook Spaces

Thanks to the immersive power of virtual reality, Facebook Spaces lets you feel like you’re spending time with your friends in person — no matter where they are. Starting today, you can share live video on Facebook from Facebook Spaces to give the people you care about a window into your VR world. Bring more friends along for the ride!

Facebook Live is already one of the most immediate and interactive ways to share moments with friends. By going live from Facebook Spaces, you can share a whole new kind of moment with friends and family directly from VR. Whether you’re touring exotic locations across the globe in 360, collaborating on a virtual marker masterpiece, or riffing on a viral video, the people who matter most to you can now follow along in real time on Facebook.

When you go live from Facebook Spaces, you’ll have a virtual camera that you can position anywhere in your space to capture the action. Friends on Facebook can comment on your broadcast and ask you questions to participate in the moment with you — and you can even see their reactions in VR. You’ll see a stream of friends’ comments and can pull out your favorites as physical objects that everyone in the space can interact with — a great way to highlight compelling questions and clever one-liners from your friends.

Live from Facebook Spaces opens up the fun of VR and lets everyone join the experience. Along with Messenger video calling and selfies, it’s an easy way to share your VR experiences and create lasting memories with everyone you care about. We’re excited to see how people go live from Spaces to interact with friends in new ways — and this is only the beginning, as we’ll continue to add new features to the experience.

Check out Facebook Spaces in beta on the Oculus Store, and try your first live broadcast today. If you don’t have a Rift yet, now is the perfect time to jump in! Thanks to the Oculus Summer of Rift sale, Rift + Touch are now available at $399 for a limited time.

How to use a man page: Faster than a Google search

Open Source - Mié, 07/12/2017 - 09:02

It's easy to get into the habit of googling anything you want to know about a command or operation in Linux, but I'd argue there's something even better: a living and breathing, complete reference, the man pages, which is short for manual pages.

Managing creative assets with Planter

Open Source - Mié, 07/12/2017 - 09:01

When I first started making websites, I had files scattered all over my /var/www directory. As I matured and learned from professional designers, I figured out that it was smarter to build in some subdirectories, like css and fonts and images. Eventually I came to understand that standardizing my file structure made it easier for me to smoothly switch between projects without having to orient myself with a new layout.

A free, open resource to solve our third world problems

Open Source - Mié, 07/12/2017 - 09:00

Corruption, poverty, war, hunger, healthcare, education, safety. These are only a few of the problems faced by people in developing countries. Many of these problems are caused by exclusion, fear, intimidation, broken infrastructure, and lack of money, resources, access to information, and tools.

These are hard problems to solve but, as Theodore Roosevelt said:

"Nothing in this world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty."

Like most people, you probably have more than a few photos and other images on your computer. And, like most people, you probably like to take a peek at those images and photos every so often.

Functional testing Gtk+ applications in C

Open Source - Mar, 07/11/2017 - 09:01

Automated tests are required to ensure your program's quality and that it works as expected. Unit tests examine only certain parts of your algorithm, but don't look at how each component fits together. That's where functional testing, sometimes referred as integration testing, comes in.

What does it mean to have an open mindset?

Open Source - Mar, 07/11/2017 - 09:00

Successful companies are those that grow and expand. But bigger companies often need more managers. Excessive layers of management can instill cumbersome bureaucracy in a company, and bureaucracy can become a significant problem for companies when it can causes wasteful resource allocation, decreases productivity, and decelerates innovation.
