NixMashup for May 11, 2014

Greetings from Vermont! In this NixMashup we have a geek’s review of the movie The Social Network, Linode Email considerations, the latest big Java 8 New Features guide, Optional vs Null, WordPress Filesystem Permissions, deploying to Maven, an intro to PostgreSql Functions, an Android Studio PPA for Ubuntu and a new Linux Distribution called Evolve OS.

If you want to catch all of the NixMashup link action and see the links as they are created, follow the NixMash Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/nixmash. Most NixMashup links are first posted to the NixMash feed for later compilation here in NixMashup.
