CB1 Ubuntu 10.10 Linux Development Setup

I use a MacBook Pro for my day-to-day operations here at CB1, INC. I’m a huge believer that a development environment should mimic the production environment, so I find myself running a couple virtual machines in VMware Fusion.

The following guide is a reference for myself as well as possibly a helpful resource for setting up your own Linux development environment. Here’s an checklist of the tasks to perform and software to install:

  • Operating System
    • Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit: I use Ubuntu Desktop in dev and Ubuntu Server in production

    • Network configuration (at least 2 static IP addresses)
  • Development Tools
    • C/C++ development environment
    • Autotools
    • Sun Java JDK

Matt Asay is pushing his favorite Open Source model again. The model where the majority of developers of a project work for a company and that company is creating a business around the project. There's nothing wrong with that model, but he seems to forget the other models time over time :)

Matt is absolutely right with 2 of the 3 things he wants you to consider.
A SI in the middle of a $50 million dollar project involving Alfresco not talking to Alfresco is just wrong. An SI not offering a support contract is also just wrong. But an SI forcing his customer to buy the commercially supported version from a vendor ? Where's the customer choice ?

The customer should have the option to choose for a commercially supported version or the free version. And preferably that should be an educated option.

Matt seems to forget about situations where …

High Availability with DRBD and Heartbeat Presentation

Here's my presentation I gave June 9, 2008, at the Twin Cities MySQL and PHP User Group about my highly available cluster using DRBD and Heartbeat.

I added a few slides and cleaned things up a bit. The presentation went well and we had a lot of good questions.

The MySQL and PHP User Group will be taking some time off over the summer. There will be another meetup mid-summer to come up with some ideas for future meetings.
