Ubuntu

Hello,

At the heart of Ubuntu is the promise that a secure, stable low-cost platform for operations can also be a productive and innovative platform for developers. This month’s announcements puts this in perspective.

Operations can continue to use Ubuntu 14.04 despite the latest vulnerabilities such as the Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS). While Windows developers can build Ubuntu applications on Windows with Windows Subsystem for Linux 2.

Operations get a hand starting their AI infrastructure program, while developers can test and adopt the latest in Kubernetes and AI with MicroK8s and Kubeflow.

We see the results in some of the most interesting tech challenges of today from the much hyped self driving cars, to farming robots utilising AI.

AI is too important for your business to ignore. This is why you need to get your AI program started…but how? With so many questions to answer, such a variety of opinions and potentially expensive infrastructure to put in place getting started is not easy. Canonical has partnered with two AI consultancies to help you kick-start your AI program. From development methodology to hardware, from AI frameworks to data sets this one week program should put you on rails!


This month’s Kubecon Europe event was a reminder (if one was needed) that for many infrastructure teams, Kubernetes has gone from the proof of concept phase to early production. Why was the Ubuntu team there?

You probably knew that Ubuntu is the OS of choice for public clouds to run their Kubernetes services. But did you know MicroK8s, the lightweight, single node Kubernetes instance you can install and launch on your development machine in just a couple minutes? Did you know that Canonical offers support for Kubernetes deployed with kubeadm and for Charmed Kubernetesfor multicloud deployment across VMware, bare-metal to Openstack and public cloud?

As Kubernetes matures, questions are being asked around the security of Kubernetes and the various OS images used in containers. That’s one of the reasons why the security team at Canonical launched the Ubuntu security podcast to inform you about the latest security news across the whole open infrastructure stack.

Finally, one of the stars of the show was Kubeflow, and the increased importance of Kubeflowto run AI workloads.


Internet of Things

Nothing illustrates the changes in the world of embedded development more than the rise of autonomous cars. IoT security and reliability are at the top of the agenda for automotive companies. These and how to manage an increasingly complex software stack are some of the topics discussed in this latest webinar with 451 Research.

But while the world awaits self-driving cars, Ubuntu powered autonomous vehicles are becoming a reality… just not on the roads. Here are two robots that might be roaming near you: Northstar and their autonomous snow ploughs in Canadians airports and the Small Robot Company with their robots working the fields.


Since the introduction of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), using Ubuntu on desktop computers had never been so broadly available. With the new WSL2, Microsoft and Canonical are making developing Linux applications on Windows even more convenient with shared file system access and Ubuntu images that make porting to Azure more straightforward.

And if you’re into developing Linux applications, from cloud to IoT, the next Snapcraft summitwill be starting in Montreal on the 11th of June. On the agenda, robot hacking, IoT Boardfest and the traditional Summit itself in partnership with Travis CI.

Who said Linux applications were all open-source hobbyist apps? Hiri, the email client, have a great Linux application story explaining how they have used snaps to prove that proprietary, commercial applications can also thrive in the Linux ecosystem!
