New zine: Linux debugging tools you'll love

3 Shares

HELLO FRIENDS. I am announcing this everywhere because I'm very excited about it. I released a new zine today! Read it here! Read all my zine things at jvns.ca/zines!

This zine is about some of my favorite Linux debugging tools, especially tools that I don't think are as well-known as they should be. It covers strace, opensnoop/eBPF, and dstat! netcat, netstat, tcpdump, wireshark, and ngrep! And there's a whole section on perf because perf is the best.

If you don't know what any of those tools I just mentioned are -- PERFECT. You are who this zine is for!!! Read it and find out why I love them! Also, a lot of these tools happen to work on OS X :)

I've been really delighted to see that a ton of people have enjoyed & learned something new from this zine, whether they just started using Linux (!!!) or have been debugging on Linux for 10 years.

As usual, there are 3 versions. If you print it, you can print as many as you want! Give them to your friends! Teach them about tcpdump!

The cover art is by Monica, who is the best.

Thanks to my amazing partner Kamal Marhubi for endless reviews, and many many other people. It turns out that a zine project takes a long time! I do not even know how people write books.

Launch of the new Rails Tutorial screencats

1 Share

Due to popular demand, I am pleased to announce the launch of the Rails Tutorial screencats! The art of web development procrastination has never been cuter:

Rails Tutorial screencats

Although they’re not nearly as adorable as the screencats (for obvious reasons), I’m also pleased to announce the launch of the Ruby on Rails Tutorial screencasts, updated for Rails 5!

The Rails Tutorial screencasts are the most up-to-date resource for learning web development with Ruby on Rails. They are available for free via the Learn Enough Society, as well as being available for purchase as direct downloads. Those links include a 20% launch discount that expires in a week, so get them while it lasts!

The best way to get the new screencasts is via the Learn Enough Society, which includes all 15+ hours as integrated streaming video:

The Learn Enough Society also includes text and video for the three Developer Fundamentals tutorials (Command Line, Text Editor, Git), as well as immediate access to new tutorials as they’re released.

The Rails Tutorial screencasts are the ideal complement to the Rails Tutorial book, allowing you to see exactly how web applications are built in practice. There are video lessons corresponding to each chapter of the book, totaling over 15 hours of content. You can view a full sample lesson here.

As with the 3rd edition of the tutorial, the new 4th edition covers every major aspect of web development:

  • Creating both static and dynamic pages with Rails templates
  • Data modeling with a full database back-end
  • Creating a working signup page from scratch
  • Building a custom login and authentication system
  • Learning to use cookies to make a working “remember me” checkbox
  • Activating accounts and resetting passwords
  • Sending email in Rails, both locally and in production
  • Advanced data modeling to create a mini Twitter-like application
  • Coverage of software best practices, including test-driven development and version control
  • Emphasis on strong security throughout
  • Deploying to production early and often

Those familiar with the previous edition will find the following main differences in the Rails 5 version:

  • 14 lessons instead of 12, due not to new material but to the two longest lessons being split in two (much more manageable)
  • Full compatibility with Rails 5, including the use of the rails command in place of rake
  • A shift toward integration-style testing for controllers, together with a new convention for passing parameters in tests

Because Rails 4.2 and Rails 5.0 are so similar, the new edition of the screencasts did not need to be created from scratch. Instead, the minor diffs mentioned above are highlighted as text notes in the videos themselves. The result is that it is immediately apparent which parts of the Rails framework have changed between versions.

Now that the Rails Tutorial screencasts are complete, my Learn Enough cofounders and I are hard at work on additional Learn Enough tutorials, with Action Cable, HTML, CSS & Layout, and JavaScript coming soon. Be sure to sign up for the email list to get notifications.

Remember, all 15+ hours of the Rails Tutorial screencasts are available both via the Learn Enough Society and as direct purchase. Those links include a 20% launch discount* that expires in a week, so get them while it lasts!

* Note: The discount applies to any Rails Tutorial purchase or to the first month of the Learn Enough Society.

Lil indie movies like this one thrive on word-of-mouth, so if you feel like sharing, that would be cool! If not, that’s cool, too! Less cool, but cool nonetheless. 

Okay, thanks! Bye!

Google Play Family Library: Share what you love with the ones you love

1 Comment and 2 Shares
Friday night is movie night at our home, and my wife and I look forward to our weekly ritual of putting the kids to bed, getting some takeout, and catching up on our movie wishlist. Whether it’s making the BLUE STEEL face from Zoolander, swapping tips on playing Monument Valley, or reading Dragons Love Tacos to the kids at bedtime, these shared moments bring us closer together.

For families like mine, who bond over shared entertainment, we’re introducing Family Library, a way for up to six family members to share purchases on Google Play. When you buy an eligible app, game, movie, TV show, or book in the Play Store, you can now share it with your family—across devices—with no additional sign-up fee.


Share across your family’s devices
Today’s families have a lot of devices, and it should be easy to share content no matter where we are or what we’re doing. Everyone in my family loves the Star Wars movies and we all want to be able to watch them, on our phones, tablets, laptops, or TV. All purchases added to Family Library are available across Android devices, and movies, TV shows, and books can be enjoyed on iOS devices and the web.

Easily manage sharing and family purchases
As with most family matters, flexibility and choice is important. With Family Library, you can choose which items you want to share and which to keep to yourself—for example, I’ll probably keep my collection of comic books in my personal library. Flexibility is also built into your purchasing options. When you sign up, you’ll select a credit card to share as your family payment method, but your family members will always have the option of buying stuff with their personal credit cards or gift cards. And for your younger family members, you’ll have the option to approve each of their purchases.

Share a Music subscription with your family
Finally, if your family loves music, you can also subscribe to the Google Play Music family plan. On this plan, up to six family members can stream millions of songs on demand for $14.99 a month. We launched the family plan late last year, and today we’re expanding it to Ireland, Italy, Mexico, and New Zealand. And you can now sign up on the web, in addition to your Android device.

Starting today, Family Library will be rolling out over the next few days and will be available in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. To get started, sign up in Google Play, invite your family members, and start sharing what you love!
