Data and who con­trols it is a vi­tal is­sue. This is­sue we’re cov­er­ing how to open source the way you store your own or your com­pany’s data (p18). Th­ese days, it’s easy enough to let the cloud slurp it all up, but if you want to be in the driv­ing seat, we high­light some ex­cel­lent net­work stor­age dis­tro op­tions. We’ve also taken a look at three of the open source mo­bile OSes that will be sup­ported by Purism’s Li­brem 5 phone due early next year (p58). It’s an early look – dev kits go out in Septem­ber – but it’s ex­cit­ing to see a di­verse range that will be on of­fer.

In the tu­to­rial sec­tions, we’ve some en­try-level guides from Bash in Linux Es­sen­tials (p32), set­ting up a Python vir­tual en­vi­ron­ment and us­ing macros and scripts in Li­bre­Of­fice (p38), to more ad­vanced ar­ti­cles on ex­fil­i­trat­ing data in Com­puter Se­cu­rity (p42), run­ning code in par­al­lel across a Pi clus­ter (p48), and man­ag­ing a net­worked suite of Pis (p74). Of course, there’s also our fire­wall dis­tri­bu­tion group test (p81). It’s an­other packed is­sue. En­joy!
