Building Your Own Super Computer. Building Your Own Super - Building a Linux Cluster ( 4 ) Linux clusters are generally more common, robust, efficient and cost effective than Windows clusters.

Building Your Own Super Computer

We will now look at the steps involved in building up a Linux cluster. For more information go here . Step 1 Install a Linux distribution (I am using Red Hat 7.1 and working with two Linux boxes) on each computer in your cluster. During the installation process, assign hostnames and of course, unique IP addresses for each node in your cluster. Usually, one node is designated as the master node (where you'll control the cluster, write and run programs, etc.) with all the other nodes used as computational slaves. Our cluster is private, so theoretically we could assign any valid IP address to our nodes as long as each has a unique value. If you already have Linux installed on each node in your cluster, then you don't have to make changes to your IP addresses or hostnames unless you want to. Master DevArticle Slave DevArticle.

From Zynga To Flipboard: Why All Eyes Are On China For The Next Mobile Boom

Prior to joining The9, he served as group account director and account director for several advertising agencies in Shanghai and Taipei. If you spend any time speaking with Western mobile companies, one topic that’s likely to pop up is their “China strategy.” Due to a mix of mobile penetration, sheer population, and popularity of the mobile web, Western mobile companies recognize there’s a lot of money to be made overseas.

The idea is not without merit: China is the world’s largest mobile market with almost one billion users, 69 percent of which access the Internet through their phones on a regular basis. As such, plenty of big-name Western mobile companies have already begun entering China. China’s lucrative potential is especially relevant for mobile developers.

ASO (App Store Optimization) Is The New SEO, And Here’s A Tool To Do It.

What’s the hardest thing about building a successful mobile app?

ASO (App Store Optimization) Is The New SEO, And Here’s A Tool To Do It

If you answered “building a mobile app,” you’re wrong. It’s getting your app found. With over 600,000+ iOS applications, and now some 450,000 on Android, the real challenge for developers is having their app surfaced higher than hundreds of other competitors in the app store search results. Doing this correctly involves ASO, or app store optimization. It’s basically SEO repurposed for mobile, and because we’re still in the early days of the mobile ecosystem, it’s simpler to optimize apps than webpages. But developers are often lacking knowledge, and especially tools, to help them out on this front. Don’t let the utility’s wordy, boring title fool you – this is a killer product for mobile developers. To use the tool, developers enter their app’s URL, and those from their competitors. Unfortunately, there is a drawback here. If you’re interested in testing out this new utility, a 30 day free trial is available. P.S.
