What's Next for Feature Development in FreeNAS/TrueNAS?

Managing Multiple Perl 5 Installations with Perlbrew
Perl 5 is a very stable, feature-rich, programming language used in a multitude of environments and applications, including operating system management tasks. Perl 5 is available in several versions, and usually, all versions are backwards compatible. However, there are edge cases and new features that could not be available on all versions. When dealing with Perl 5 application, it is a relief to know that the exact version required can be installed, depending on the specific feature set or compatibility without having to ask for administrator privileges or the need to touch the system’s wide Perl 5 installation. Perlbrew allows exactly that.
Build a Scalable Monitoring System with Grafana, InfluxDB and Riemann
If you run your own web server, VPS instance or cluster, a monitoring system is the essential tooling you simply cannot live without. This is especially true in recent years when microservices became a popular solution to decouple complex architectures (splitting application or system into microservices makes them very easy to scale, deploy and with proper tooling, and easy to monitor).
Distributed Version Control with RaspberryPi 3, Fossil, and FreeBSD
Distributed version control is a type of version control where the full source and its history are mirrored on every developer's machine. This allows branching and merging to be managed automatically, increase speeds of most operations (except for pushing and pulling), improves the ability to work offline, and does not rely on a single location for storage of the entire repository.

He is a long-haired, bearded Scotsman who has a passion for technology, chess, writing, cookery, backgammon, and his family. And more...
Spectre and Meltdown have hit the lead, copper, silver, and gold streets of the Internet highway. We knew this was on the cards. What now?
Unlike the many players in this scenario, I am going to start with an apology. The next 1000 words or so are going to be fiery and passionate, unlike a rant. The Oxford English Dictionary defines a rant as follows – to speak or shout at length in an angry, impassioned way. I refuse to be angry here, and 1000 words can hardly be considered lengthy once we have to consider all the variables, but more specifically, the context requires more than a few words.
