A New Resource for Linux on Power Developers
For a new resource guide, check out the logically and literally named Linux on Power Developer Portal.
By Rob McNelly09/29/2020
“Learn about developing on the IBM Power architecture, find open source packages, get access to cloud resources, discover the tools and technologies you need to build applications, and connect with your peers and other developers, data scientists, and academics.”
The site features detailed and regularly updated documentation on everything from porting tips and techniques to development tools and utilities, and much more. For example, dig into this quick list of recommendations if you're considering a switch from x86 to Linux on POWER.
The Open Source POWER Availability Tool (OSPAT) can also be accessed from the portal. I wrote about OSPAT in 2016, but many of the IBM developerWorks links in that post no longer work. The good news is some material now on the portal appears to have been re-homed from developerWorks. I'm always happy to see good technical content preserved.
