Installing Fedora 33 on Macbook Pro 13 inch (late 2011)

fedora 33This weekend I stumbled on an old Macbook Pro 13 inch from late 2014, with 125GB SSD and 8GB RAM. It's a machine I've taken on trips around the world and back in the day ran many a session, workshop, or demo on sharing all that AppDev goodness you know from JBoss technologies.

Well, after verifying that it's battery works, charging it up, reinstalling a new osX it turns out that the Safari browser version is limited to an old security specification that means you can't connect to a lot of HTTPS sites now. This renders that solution defunct.

What to do with this old thing?

It's been a few years since I was solely working on Linux workstations as a developer, specifically on Fedora so why not try and install the latest on this Macbook Pro?

Below the steps and adjustments needed to get Fedora 33 working on this laptops in just over an hour.

Shift Remote 2020 - DevOps Heroes scheduled

Previously I shared that I'd be joining the virtual online series called Shift Remote for 2020. 

The planning was pretty fluid when I first posted but has settled down on dates and times for the event in our series. I'll be part of E11 (event 11) which is focused on DevOps, taking place on 15 Dec 2020 from 17:00 - 20:00 CET (GMT +2).

Back in 2018 I traveled to Split, Croatia for the then live on-site version of Shift and talked about how to jump start a career in open source. It was a pretty nice experience in the national opera house, the sessions were recorded, the local town was a vacation paradise, and the people were extremely nice.

When the organization reached out about presenting for one of the Shift Remote sessions, I decided to share some insights into expanding a DevOps engineers toolbox with the following session.

What am I going to share with you at this event exactly?

 I've been invited to join the KieLives series online for episode 14 of live streaming around how to get started with rules and processes on Tuesday, November 10th 2002.

What is KieLives? 

The KIE Live Series is composed of live streamings that bring technical information and updates about business automation delivered by the projects under the KIE umbrella: Drools, jBPM, OptaPlanner, and Kogito.

Problems like process automation, decision automation, resource planning solution are the main topics, and of course, we always have in mind recent technology concepts like cloud-native application target for any type of cloud (private/public/hybrid/edge). You can expect to hear from business automation experts who code or/and deliver business automation within big enterprises across the world.

It's one thing to dive into rules and another to dive into process automation, but what about bringing them both together in a getting started learning path?
