Just Enough Linux...

... to be dangerous.

If you've toyed with Linux and never really caught on to what's happening or have used a graphical interface without really touching the command line this book is for you.

How will it help me?

The idea is to get you started on the process of using some of the commands available in Linux so that you;

  • Feel comfortable running commands
  • You understand a little more about what Linux is about and
  • Most importantly, you start to get Linux.

Is this book for you?

It's not written for experts. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure about how to make the first move. Although it's examples are centered around using Linux with a Raspberry Pi, the commands you learn here will translate to an industrial server running Linux.

Why is Just Enough Linux being written?

Because in the process of learning things, it's a great way to remember them if you write them down :-).

As a result, writing about how to do cool stuff with Linux means that we're accumulating ways to help ourselves out when the going gets tricky. Making a book out of the information is a no-brainer since that way more people benifit from the process.

So here we are! A collection of Linux commands and (hopefully) helpful information written for people who might consider that they're at the start of a fascinating journey :-).

The awesome that is Leanpub.

I've tried to pitch the book in sections so that if you find something interesting, you can read parts in isolation. I expect there to be additions and corrections to the content over time, so I'm hoping that publishing using Leanpub will allow readers to get easy notification of when updates and improvements are made.

Read the whole book online just to try it out!

I'm making the book content available to read online because I think it's a great way to give something back to the community as a whole, but if you want to download a copy of the PDF, ePub or Mobi version, I'm happy to take a donation to encourage further development of this and other books.

Enjoy.

So I hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which I've approached the topic and enjoy Linux!

Just Enough Co-Authoring in Leanpub...

... to be dangerous.

You've been asked if you're interested in co-authoring a book in Leanpub and you'd like to know a bit about how it all works and how to make a good contribution. You've come to the right place.

How will it help me?

The idea is to get you started on the process of using Leanpub and to what to expect as a co-author. After reading this you should;

  • Have a Leanpub account
  • Understand some of the responsibilities about writing in general and writing as a team member.
  • Have a basic understanding about using Markdown in Leanpub.

Is this book for you?

It's not written for people who are aready authors, although it might help out those who are thinking about asking someone to assist as a co-author. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure about how to make the first move. It's short and lacks depth. That's intentional. It's not called 'Just enough' for nothing :-).

Read the whole book online just to try it out!

I'm making the book content available for free because I think it's a great way to give something back to the Leanpub community as a whole, but if you want to download a copy of the PDF, ePub or Mobi version, I'm happy to accept a donation for beer money :-).

Enjoy.

So I hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which I approach the topic and enjoy being a co-author in Leanpub!

Just Enough ownCloud...

... to be dangerous.

If you've used Dropbox you will know that it provides a fantastic method to share and store information. You may not know that there is an outstanding open source alternative called ownCloud that provides a very similar functionality. Better yet, we can run it on everyones favourite low cost computer the Raspberry Pi! 

Why is this a good idea?

  • You may have some philosophical inclination that means you would prefer that you had control of the data you are storing the cloud
  • Maybe you want to experiment with some new software and expand your Linux skills;
  • Perhaps you feel like flexing your Raspberry Pi a little bit.

Whatever the reason, hopefully you can find the answer here.

Just Enough Raspberry Pi...

... to be dangerous.

If you've heard about the Raspberry Pi you may know that it provides a fantastic method to learn about using a computer and to develop some skills that go beyond the basics. 

What sort of things will we learn?

Good question! 

  • What sort of versions of the Raspberry Pi are there?
  • What hardware do I need to get it up and going?
  • What sort of operating systems are there and how do we install them?
  • How do I do [Insert any number of cool things]?

Whatever the reason, hopefully you can find the answer here.

That's right. You can never have enough ice cream!

For a couple of years I toyed with different ice cream recipes. I had an ice cream maker that spent most of its life unloved in the freezer. There was a lot of will to make good ice cream, but not much success.

But those days are gone!

What's here?

Presented in this book is a set of simple ice cream recipes that are easy to make and produce a great result.

You don't need an ice cream machine and the ingredients are common.

Best of all you can use the information in the book as your inspiration to create your own ice cream masterpieces that are tailored just for you!

The book is written so that each recipe is on a single page. This is so that you can set up your tablet or print out a single piece of paper and you're good to go.

The book is free right?

Yep. Sure is. I have also put a suggested price of 99 cents so that if you want to donate to continued development that would be awesome (that's way less than an ice cream from the corner store). Does that mean that you'd be paying me to make and eat more ice cream? Err.... Well.... I'm hoping my doctor doesn't come to Leanpub.

The awesome that is Leanpub.

I've tried to pitch the book so that if you find something interesting, you can use parts in isolation.

Enjoy.

So I hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which I've approached the topic and enjoy ice cream!

About the Author

Malcolm Maclean
Malcolm Maclean

I have a passion for knowledge and I realize that part of the responsibility of gathering knowledge is being able to advance the state of the human condition in some way. Yes, ice cream is one of those ways.

My aims in writing this book were to play with ice cream flavors, document the recipes I'm using and to eat a lot of ice cream (achievement unlocked).

I don't have a formal culinary background but I know what good ice cream tastes like and I bet you do as well.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter (@d3noob), I find it a great service to get alerted to what's going on.
