Last Wednesday, I went to Hack for Her and I had a great time at my first Hackathon ever. The event was designed especially for women and girls in tech in line of International Women’s Day. The organizers Girls in Tech Toronto and Women and Tech teamed up with Google Kitchener, where the event took place.
It turned out to be a fantastic day, meeting a lot of interesting people, trying to find a technical solution to a real-life, entrepreneurial issue in Singapore, and exploring parts of Google’s office, having the chance to chat with some employees.
Having a virtualized server farm can be very useful especially if you don’t want to have several servers on constantly. Virtualization allows for your different servers to run in a virtual machine instead.
Xen Server is a very popular option due to it being free for a trial which is actually sufficient for personal use. In this tutorial, we will cover the installation and configuration of a CentOS host.

A popular window manager with Arch Linux is Fluxbox. Not unlike Gentoo, Arch is known as a simple OS in which you have to build up everything from scratch. However, you don’t have to compile everything from source. Fluxbox follows this same principal. It is lightweight, barebone and fast. Nevertheless, people might be intimidated by the application. Thus, the number of Fluxbox desktops is low compared to the number of fully featured desktop environments, which are pre-configured and have a set list of applications installed by default.
