Ubuntu is part of the Google Code In



Yesterday I received an email that make me happy! I received an email from an Ubuntu Mail list, that was almost dead. In few words, the email said Ubuntu is going to be part of the Google Code In . This are great new!

But why I have a lot of interest that Ubuntu is part of the GCI?

Well. the first time I listen about the Google Summer of Code and Google Code In, was on 2010. Ubuntu was part of the GSOC and I was on college, months later the GCI began, unfortunately I was to old (18 years). So I began my work on trying to be part of this program. I tried on 2011 and failed with KDE, 2012 with New Vision for Public Schools and in 2014 I finally did it with the BeagleBoard.org!

This year I help the BeagleBoard.org as a co-mentor and I'm planning to help Ubuntu for this Google Code In as a mentor. For my surprise I have an old friend working on this, the great José Antonio Rey. If you want to help join the irc:#ubuntu-google on freenode  or the mail list: ubuntu-soc mailing list

What is Google Code In?

The Google Code In is an invitation to  pre-university students ages 13 to 17 to take part in Google Code-in, a contest that introduces young minds to the world of open source. With a wide variety of bite-sized tasks, it’s easy for beginners to jump in and get started no matter what skills you have.

Access to AWS Postgres instance in private subnet

I have been working with AWS in the last days and encounter some issues when using RDS.  Generally when you're working in development environment you have setup your database as Publicly accessible and this isn't an issue. But when you're working in Production. So we place the Amazon RDS database into a private subnet. What we need to do for connecting to the database using PgAdmin or other tool?

We're going to use one of the most common methods for doing this. You will need to launch an Amazon EC2 instance in the public subnet and then use it as jumping box.

So after you have your EC2, you will need to run the following command.
See explantion below

After this, you will need to configure your PgAdmin.
The host name will be your localhost, the port is the same you define in the above command.
Maintenance database will be your DB name and the username you have for connecting.

Hope this helps you connect to your databases.

La ultima alegría de los sampedranos del 2017

El año 2017 esta por terminar, y para la ciudadanía de la capital industrial ha sido un año singular. La ciudad se enorgullecía de que en nuestro Aeropuerto Ramon Villeda Morales, íbamos a tener el único vuelo directo entre Europa y Honduras. Finalmente se empezaba a ver obras de infraestructura concluyendo en el tiempo establecido. Se podían observar los cruces de cebra en las intersecciones de la tercera avenida y primera calle, aparte que los conductores empezaron a respetarlos, y no digamos los semáforos peatonales que lindo es ver como la ciudadanía espera su momento para cruzar por el lugar que le corresponde.

Parecía que este 2017 iba a ser un año de alegrías para la ciudad, y que no iba a suceder  algo que lo podría devastar esas pequeñas alegrías que nos hacían olvidar todas esas políticas de gobierno provenientes de la capital, que han perjudicado al  territorio nacional y no digamos a la ciudad que produce mas del 40% del PIB del país .

Llegaban las elecciones y el actual a…
