All You Need To Learn To Start A Career In Linux

A lot of technology geeks and engineering graduates today want to pursue a career in open source as the scope is vast and opportunities are unlimited. For that matter, even if they are not looking at open source as a career, they are definitely looking to switch to and experiment with Linux and Open Source OS. 

So, if you have also planned to opt the Open Source route, it’s necessary to understand what is required to learn if you are willing to build a career in Linux. So here we bring to you 12 tools that are required to be understood before diving into the open source world.

1. Apache: Apache is definitely the world’s most widely used web-server which is known for its open source architecture. Often termed as the Apache HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) server program, it is one of the crucial and primary requirements to create a good CMS or likewise. So even if you are not willing to learn it all, you do need to learn the basics. Major of the Linux employers would ask you to come with a hands-on over the apache administration.

2. Apt-get tool: It is a command-line tool to handle packages which are used to get hold of other tools using the APT library. Although, mainly used on Debian based systems, apt-get is cross-platform with various front ends built for it. Apt-get is one of the simplest tools to use and one should still be familiar with its working and syntax on command line.

3. BASH Shell: Bash (Bourne again shell) is a sh-compatible command language interpreter which executes commands from the standard input or a file. It incorporates cool features from the Korn and C shells(ksh and csh) too. It is fairly necessary for you to know how to program in Bash. One can save a lot of time and energy by writing down a little bash script to automate a task on the command line.

4. Iptables: If you’re hitting for a Linux administrator, or someone on similar lines, you need to master this. Iptables is used to install, manage and inspect the tables in the IP packet filter rules within the Linux kernel. With iptables you have the ability to create firewall rules on your Linux computer to allow/restrict access through each network interface. You should be capable enough to list the IP rules, filter a range of IPs and add/remove the rules to the table.

5. MySQL: MySQL is a simple SQL database with GNU readline capabilities which supports interactive and non-interactive use. While it is used interactively, the query results are presented as an ASCII-table. For a non-interactive use, as in a filter, the results are tab-separated. However, the output format can easily be altered using command options.

To work on Linux domain, it would be very possible for you work on Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP, aka LAMP. Hence, you need to be familiar with a MySQL server.

6. SSH and OpenSSH: SSH/OpenSSH client is a tool/program for logging onto a remote machine to executing commands over it. You might have to use a lot of SSH while working on a Linux network. Some of the basic requirements are – connecting to a server using SSH and setting up a key-based authentication for SSH.

7. Perl: It is one of the best known scripting languages for system management tasks. It is optimized for scanning arbitrary text files, extracting information from them, and printing reports based on that. Perl is known to be easy to use, efficient, and complete within itself. Several administration tasks can be completed with less pain and trouble with the advent of Perl scripts. Being a Linux admin, you may have to use this feature of Perl to master your network and system upgradation processes.

8. PHP: PHP is a recursive acronym for ‘PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.‘ This again is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language with special inclination towards Web development paradigm. It can be easily embedded into HTML and hence widely used. Having a good hands-on over PHP, Apache and MySQL is essential to get your favorite Linux job.

9. Postfix: It is a mail transfer agent (MTA) used on Linux analogous to Sendmail and Qmail. It is known to handle the routing and delivery of emails. If you’re handling a Linux network, particularly a mail server, you need to have a knowledge about this very MTA. You must master the art of configuring postfix and files along with troubleshooting other postfix errors.

10. rsync: It is a powerful tool to greatly speed up file transfers when the destination file is being updated. Rsync uses a remote-update protocol which basically copies only the difference of files that have been changed. It is a great tool for backing up files to another Linux host. An aspirant should atleast be aware of the syntax used with rsync to copy files to another host machine.

11. Samba: You would have probably come across this name while working on Linux and reading articles over the web. The Samba software suite is a collection of programs which implement the Server Message Block(SMB) protocol for *NIX systems. This protocol is often referred to as the Common Internet File System or CIFS. A lot of companies which run over a Linux based environment use Samba to share files across the network. As Linux career enthusiast, you should master Samba to perfection. The preliminaries include – installing and configuring Samba server, adding and maintaining users, setting up Samba shares, et al.

12. SCP: It helps copy files between hosts within a network. It uses ssh for data transfer with same authentication and security as ssh. scp asks for pass-phrases if they are needed for authentication. One needs to know scp if he/she needs to copy files between Linux hosts over a public or private network with security concerns.

Works in Progress for Tactilu : You'll able to Touch Your loved ones no matter where they are

Science and technology are moving forward and we can see a lot of changes taking place due to these advancements. We are constantly being bombarded with new gadgets and boy oh boy, the wonders that these small things can pull off are just ah-mazing! Science has definitely taken a leap from being a subject that was too boring and not much concerned with everyday aspects of life to something that is constantly working to make life better. These technological advancements have touched every aspect of our lives. Take dating for example; what once used to be a physical meeting has been converted into texting! The frequency of these texts is in most cases directly proportional to the dating compatibility. This virtual contact form is very popular and has its pros and cons. However, like everything that keeps on progressing, engineering has taken the next step in dating too. Tactilu, a wearable tech, a new idea, has been introduced which might very well turn into the next market success.

Welcome to Pangenerator, a Poland based design studio, which has created a device that will change the concept of dating and how we all go about it. Tactilu is the name of the wrist device that they have created which is the next gen thing. What we are looking at is a wearable tech which is able to transmit the sense of touch remotely and hence allows for communication. The gadget is powered by an Arduino Pro mini microcontroller along with a Bluetooth module. This prototype basically allows its users to touch each other virtually, by using haptic feedback which is simulated by using an internet connection or Bluetooth and doesn’t matter how far the users are apart.

Although the gadget is already pretty out of the future thing, the company is hopeful that the next gen of this device will be much slimmer and hence more user friendly.

Facebook rewards Indian engineer : Next Could be you!!

Facebook rewards Indian engineer

An engineer from Chennai, Arul Kumar has been rewarded by Facebook for detecting a security bug which could be used to delete images on the social networking site. Kumar's discovery fetched him a reward of 12,500 US dollars. An engineer from Chennai, Arul Kumar has been rewarded by Facebook for detecting a security bug which could be used to delete images on the social networking site. Kumar's discovery fetched him a reward of 12,500 US dollars.

When he was asked how he came across this bug Arul kumar said “I have always been interested in the security of frequently-used websites such as Google and Facebook. There has to be a bug somewhere, and I keep testing every feature of these sites”
“It was during one such testing exercise that he wondered if photos uploaded on Facebook by a user could be removed by others. Users are aware of two ways to remove a picture from the site — either the account owner removes it or somebody else who has a problem with it uses the dashboard to request the Facebook team to remove it”
“But Facebook also has an option that asks the user who uploaded the picture to remove it. When I tested the feature, it turned out the request to remove the picture was sent to the person who wanted it removed, and not to the one who uploaded it — that was the bug,”
“But they rejected my claim saying they could not detect the bug. It was only when I sent them a video of the malfunction that they believed such a bug existed.”
“This happened a week ago, but I waited till the bug was fixed so users would not be affected. Facebook does not pay those who hack into existing accounts,”
“My father got me a laptop this January. I look forward to helping him in managing the family’s expenses. I hope at least one of the many companies I have applied to for a job responds to my application,” he added .

Less Known Facts About Linux

There are a lot of facts about Linux that are interesting and not known at all. We are giving you a list of 14 such facts about Linux that are interesting and fun all at once: 

1. Linux is Obsolete: One of the most heated debates on the relevance of Linux was held recently between Andrew S Tanenbaum and Linus Torvalds focused Linux portability and its architecture in general. Tanenbaum is of the opinion that the OS is obsolete.

2. The outspoken Linus: Linus Torvalds has been outspoken at many occasions-one of the more explicit comments he made recently was that he would not change the structure of Linux to “deep throat Microsoft”.

3. Was Linux invented by Bill Gates and has all the evidence removed by him? A compelling argument made by Mr Tom Adelstein on this topic. In his argument, he says that Microsoft has managed to show that smaller OS-es like Linux are a threat to its existence, and has managed to remove all the evidence as well!

4. Microsoft Linux AKA MSLinux: There has been talks of a Linux distribution system that tries to give the power of Linux with ease of use that one usually expect from Microsoft products. Most tech analysts say that they have a hard time believing this is true.

5. Linus was offered Job at Apple by Steve Jobs? This one’s absolutely correct. As far back as 2000, when Linus met Steve Jobs, he was offered a job at Apple’s Cupertino campus

6. GooBuntu: The Linux flavor used inside Google. This is also true that Ubuntu Linux is Google's desktop of choice and that it's called Goobuntu. 

7. Linux for supercomputers: Linux powers 90 per cent of the world’s top supercomputers. World’s fastest super computer ‘Sequoia’ (developed by IBM) runs entirely on Linux.

8. Linux in movie making business: It is an interesting fact that 90 per cent of servers that are used by Hollywood animation studios make use of Linux.

9. The ‘Linux’ name trademark dispute: There was a trademark dispute which had gained some prominence when Linus decided to name kernel as ‘Linux’, especially given the fact that he didn’t register it. Later on, in 1994, a guy named William Della Croce, Jr. filed for a trademark in United States and demanded royalties from distributors of Linux. Linus Torvalds won this legal battle over name ‘Linux’ in 1997.

10. The first Linux Live CD: This was used by yggdrasil computing, a company, that was the first one to produce a Live-CD for it’s ‘Plug and Play’ Linux distribution known as LSX

11. Microsoft spends millions to counter Linux: It is believed on the back of firm evidence, that Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, spent $421 million to counter the growth of Linux and its penetration in Microsoft Windows’s market.

12. Linux as a case study: A now famous case study on Linux was part of an issue of the ‘Business Week Magazine’.

13. Hundreds of Linux Distros: Linux is distributed by over 300 distributions in action across the world and the list is growing everyday!

14. Linus, Steve and Bill Gates: Hate them or love them but we cannot ignore them. Here is a compilation of great quotes from these 3 men.

Phone Blocks : A Phone For Future


A phone only lasts a couple of years before it breaks or becomes obsolete. Although it’s often just one part which killed it, we throw everything away since it’s almost impossible to repair or upgrade.

Phonebloks is made of detachable bloks. The bloks are connected to the base which locks everything together into a solid phone. If a blok breaks you can easily replace it, if it's getting old just upgrade.

Reasons Why IIT World Ranking Is Going Down!

The well-known Indian Institute of Technology is not doing well in the global University rankings. As per Times of India, between the years 2009-2013, the IITs have been experiencing a gradual decline in the global University rankings. According to Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) rankings report, the competitors from the rest of Asia and China have gradually come into the top 400 rankings with just five old IITs in the list.
mr ooppss

According to analysis by QS, the five Indian Institutes of Technology that ranked below the last year (2012) have displayed slow progress since 2009. As stated on, the report also finds this to be surprising as the Indian economy was doing well post recession period. 

There seem to be two main reasons for the dip in rankings. They are that IIT may have gone down in terms of the overall appeal or have been left behind by its competitors. The reactions to the article on Times of India reflect that most of them are blaming this on the reservations/quota, stating that the reservation policy is responsible for its dip whereas a few have stated that the slide is nothing new or surprising. 

As IITs are our only candidate in the global race, it is a matter of concern. Apart from IITs there are no other institutes who have made it to the race in the top global list. There are no institutes that qualify even in the global 500 list from India.

Ethical Hacking: How To Get There

At a time when security of data has become paramount, ethical hackers are often hired by both corporate houses and governments for probing and improving the security in their networks. The following article takes a look at ethical hacking, in terms of what the market looks like and what you need to do in case you want to become an ethical hacker.

According to research reports, the IT market overall is growing despite the slowdown. According to an estimate by research firm Gartner, the worldwide enterprise IT spending grew by 5.9 percent between 2009 and 2010, to a total of $2.7 trillion. 

An ethical hacker’s position can give you a pay cheque of up to $100,000 per year even in the initial years.

The military is one way of getting into the field, given that it affords many IT opportunities. A beginner needs to earn his or her A+ Certification and get a tech support position. After some experience and additional certification (Network+ or CCNA), move up to a network support or admin role, and then to network engineer after a few years. Next, put some time into earning security certifications (Security+, CISSP, or TICSA) and find an information security position. Besides the technical skills ethical hackers should have a strong work ethic and good problem-solving and communications skills.

Never ever intrude upon or attack anyone's network without their permission. Engaging in illegal activities, even if it doesn't lead to a conviction, will likely kill your ethical hacking career.

There are courses that will signify that you are a Certified Ethical Hacker and you can also join some seminar or workshops on Ethical Hacking and Cyber Security in various cities across India.
