Keynote: Why an OPEN Blockchain is Critical for Business and Innovation - Chris Ferris, Distinguished Engineer & CTO, IBM and Dan O'Prey, CMO, Digital Asset Holdings
In December 2015, the tech industry exploded with news about the new open blockchain project at the Linux Foundation - the Hyperledger Project. The pre-announce resulted in the most inquiries in the first week of any new project at the Linux Foundation by a factor of five! While Bitcoin may be floundering, the technology that has made it possible - the blockchain - still holds huge potential to transform just about every industry. So, what is this blockchain technology that commands the attention of the biggest names in the tech and financial industries and why is it so imperative that it be open? Chris Ferris, IBM CTO Open Technology, explains blockchain technology and explains why open governance is critical to its success. Learn who is involved, what the project intends to develop, what use cases we envisage for this important new technology and why you should care.

Keynote: How Do We Make the Internet's Building Blocks Secure? - Mårten Mickos, CEO, HackerOne
Collaboration and peer production have demonstrated their enormous positive power in software development since Linus sent out his famous email in 1991, and even earlier. Now, a similar shift is happening in software security, and it needs to happen. Nearly every piece of software is connected to the external world and thereby vulnerable to malicious attack. The building blocks of the internet were not originally designed to be fully secure. To make them secure, we need a community approach. Hackers worldwide are uniting to help find the most elusive software vulnerabilities.

Tilting at Windmills: The Connection Between Fighting Abusive Patent Asserters (aka Patent Trolls) and Civil Rights Advocacy - Lee Cheng, Chief Legal Officer, SVP of Corporate Development and Corporate Secretary, Newegg Inc.

Most people would not naturally see a connection between civil rights advocacy and patent law.  Both are highly specialized, and disparate areas of law full of experts who have spent years, if not decades, toiling in the trenches of academia, public policy and in the courts.  I went to law school originally inspired by the desire to engage in pioneering civil rights advocacy, driven by my own experience with regressive practices and jurisprudence in the field.  I exited law school as a corporate lawyer, determined to stay as far from courtrooms as I could. 

Ironically, despite my background,  I have probably become best known for my work in patent litigation, despite being neither a patent lawyer nor a litigator. I did so to help ensure room for continued innovation and entrepreneurism in a world where various interests, via patents or otherwise, are utilizing their considerable resources to attempt to create and exert negative, rent-seeking monopolistic controls over future opportunities.

My talk will focus on how I think anyone can help to bring about positive change as long as they have enough passion, and a willingness to not accept that things must stay the way they are simply because they have always or long been. I intend to share the experiences that led me to a career in the law, and then to try to effect the changes that I considered right and necessary.  I want to encourage the members of the audience to each do what they can to practice law effectively by viewing what they do as a mission, and to provide a framework for helping them identify and tilt at their own windmills at work and in society at large.

Keynote: Being Software Driven: It Takes a Platform - Cornelia Davis, CTO, Transformation Practice, Pivotal Software
The last decade has seen a revolution in the manner in which digital experiences are brought to consumers. The companies who are not just meeting increased consumer expectations, but are defining them, are operating within very different organizational structures than their predecessors, and are wrapping new processes around them. And they are using a fundamentally different toolset than before. In this talk we will cover a set of processes that serve this new paradigm and we’ll study the patterns that must be present in supporting software development and runtime platforms.

Keynote: Building Visible Companies Around Open Software - Ping Li, General Partner, Accel Partners
We’re in the golden age of open innovation. Millions of developers worldwide work in concert to build innovative open software. Today, these bits power many of the fastest-growing, most progressive technology companies in our economy.

While the development methodologies behind open innovation are tried and true, the company-building methodologies are still a work in progress. Sustainable companies, when built correctly, can be powerful forces behind open development -- driving useful contributions and feedback that benefit open participants at large. Entrepreneurs starting companies around open projects must find a balance between community leadership, customer focus, and offering value-added, proprietary products. Each effort is important, as no one alone can support a healthy business.

Accel Partners has been an investor in open startups for over a decade, as the early backer of Cloudera, Couchbase, Springsource, Sysdig, Xensource and others. In this talk, Accel’s Ping Li will present the “three Ps” of sustainable, open companies: the Project, Product, and Profit phases -- and why each, in sequence, is necessary to building the next great open technology startup.

Climate change is the biggest challenge for our generation but the land sector can be part of the solution. Come to our unconference in the Castle Peak Room to hear how we are working to make this happen: We use big data to measure and model forests and crops on land plots of 25 by 25 meters. This approach results in an accurate measurement of the CO2 that is taken out of the atmosphere by forests and other land uses.  These accurate measurements can then be used to trigger large investments into restoring forests and better agricultural practices. We would love to hear feedback and ideas from you, including how you might contribute to this important work.

Open Development Analytics: a Step Towards More Project Transparency - Jesus Gonzalez-Barahona, Bitergia
Understanding the inner life of free / open source software projects is important to developers, users and decision makers. But gaining this knowledge is a specialized, time-consuming and error-prone task. Fortunately, software development analytics comes to the rescue: it highlights interesting aspects of a project, tracks relevant patterns, and assists in the early identification of problems. It can be used to study fairness and neutrality, efficiency, control, dependability, and other important aspects of a project. Providing the results of those analytics allows for a new level of transparency and self-awareness of the community, leading to the concept of "Open Development Analytics". The talk will explore this concept, presenting also some specific examples of how to use it in the real life of software development projects.

Resource Monitoring for Cgroup Hierarchies - Kanaka Juvva, Intel
Cgroup is a good abstraction for specifying and bundling resource needs for processes in Linux. Cgroups and containers work together and scale to large scale applications. Intel CQM and MBM looks at how to monitorCache Usage and Memory Bandwidth usage at process and thread level by leveraging perf_event API and tools in open source for Linux OS. Cgroup level monitoring of these resource is add additional advantage and ease for applications since lot of applications in cloud and data center domain are too big to worry about thread level details.
I present a mechanism and approach to extend the mechanism to Cgroups and next level hierarchy.

New Models in Open Source - Rod Vagg, NodeSource
Open source history is divided into eras by the tools we use, there's a clear connection between the amount of friction in collaborating and the nature of the open source ecosystem that exists around it. Node.js is a child of the git and GitHub era of open source and is far more comfortable with inclusion, transparency and discussion than many of its open source predecessors. But Node.js is also on the forefront of something new. A radical openness is being adopted across the Node.js ecosystem and has also infected the Node core project. This is an openness that seeks to hand the reigns, and even ownership, to the individuals who invest their time to the project. Rod will explore the upsides and downsides of this new openness for individuals and companies and discuss what it might mean for the future of open source.

Data Intensive Virtual Network Functions on Any Cloud - DeWayne Filppi & Vadim Sukhomilnov, GigaSpaces
The successful adoption of NFV depends on the ability of cloud infrastructure to deliver sufficient performance compared to today’s proprietary network appliances. Generic hardware isn't equipped nor configured to handle this kind of load, and as a result, can't run with the needed performance large carriers & Telcos require. To achieve such performance, you need advanced processor & networking technologies embedded in silicon and in PCIe devices, but even so, you need to ensure your VNFs are ultimately able to leverage these capabilities. In this talk, we'll show how NFV throughput performance varies depending on proper VNF workload placement configuration, by declaring what the VNF requires from the hardware (SR-IOV, DPDK, etc) and ensuring proper matching & configuration in NFVI. We'll see how Enhanced Platform Awareness & smart orchestration are enablers for such extreme performance.

Orchestration Tool Roundup - Kubernetes vs. Heat vs. Fleet vs. Mesos vs. TOSCA - Uri Cohen, GigaSpaces
Containers represent a portable unit of deployment, and OpenStack has proven an ideal environment for running these workloads. However, where it becomes complex is that many times an application is often built out of multiple containers, as well as hybrid environments - diverse clouds, bare metal & even non-virtualized infrastructure. What’s more, setting up a cluster of container images can be fairly cumbersome as you need to make one container aware of another and expose intimate details that are required for them to communicate which is not trivial especially if they’re not on the same host. These scenarios have instigated the demand for some kind of orchestrator. The list of container orchestrators is growing fairly fast. This session will compare the different orchestation projects out there - from Heat to Kubernetes to Mesos & Cloudify - and help you choose the right tool.

Building Communities With Behavioral Economics - Jono Bacon, GitHub
Open Source communities are a complex and organic mix of people, culture, and software. Fortunately, Behavioral Economics can provide a scaffolding for building strong communities built upon how humans are irrational in predictable ways.

Bacon will delve into these predictable patterns of behavior defined by behavioral economics research and provide practical guidance for how to harness them to build communities both externally as well as internally within organizations. This guidance will not just focus on the community participant experience, but also on how community strategy is defined and executed within an organization. The outcome of this is a stronger community, more in line with how humans actually behave, and more rewarding for everyone involved.

Be sure to join us for an insightful, practical, and thought-provoking presentation.

The Power of Building a Foundation for the Community - James Snell, IBM
A few years ago, Node.js had just a few committers and the maintenance overhead was overwhelming for them. The project began to decline both in terms of committers and outside contributors. The result, of course, was a slower release cycle, general stagnation to Node.js, and eventually the io.js fork.

A lot has changed since then. The Node.js Foundation was formed and, under its direction, io.js and Node.js merged. We now have a high growth rate with 400 members, 50 committers to Node.js Core and more than 100 contributors per month. 

This talk will focus on how and why we created the Node.js Foundation, including obstacles we had to overcome, and how we were able to use this non-profit to help get the project back on track.

UniK – Cloud Foundry backend for Unikernel - Idit Levine, EMC
Unikernel – an executable image that can run natively on a hypervisor without the need for a separate operating system – are rapidly gaining momentum. To integrate unikernels into the echo-system, cloud-computing platforms as a service are required to provide unikernels with the same services they provide for constrainers. Here we present Unik, an orchestration system for unikernels. Unik handles the compilation of libraries and applications for running on AWS, manages their scheduling, and ensures their health. To provide the user with a seamless PaaS experience, Unik is integrated as a backend to Cloud Foundry runtime.

OpenServiceCatalogManager – a Framework and Tooling for End-User-Friendly Management and Provisioning of Cloud Workloads - Dr. Wolfgang Ries, Fujitsu
On October 27, 2015, Fujitsu announced open sourcing of OSCM (OpenServiceCatalogManager.org). This Java-coded software is a package of well-integrated functions that are routinely required by organizations wanting to bring real end-user ease-of-use and cost control of XaaS offerings to their customers. Besides key components such as user, account and subscription management, open interfaces to identity management, process control and billing or reporting engines, OSCM brings to the table a unique concept of separating technical from marketable services – which has repeatedly proven its value for well-structured service deployment.

The presentation will focus on key use cases and explain the benefit of this software in the specific context of container- and micro service-based service management.

GitHub Data and Metrics - Jeff McAffer, Microsoft
GitHub hosts millions of people collaborating on more than 20 million repositories. This is an unprecedented treasure trove of data for software engineering researchers, companies and project teams alike:
* Researchers take interest in developer behavior and code evolution – branching, collaboration, bug/fix rates, software quality and distributed software development.
* Companies look for how projects, theirs and others, are doing and discover trends in the industry.
* Project teams want to understand their health, uptake of their offerings, API usage and more.

In this session, we'll give you a first look at GHTorrent/DataLake, an infrastructure for tracking the activity of all (20 million!) public GitHub repos, and their thousands (and thousands) of events per hour. We'll talk about (and show) real insights, in areas from contribution handling with pull requests and issues to api usage, tool adoption and notions of project health. This work is applicable to researchers, developers, community members/managers, product teams and executive sponsors. We also outline how it all works and our plans for making the data widely available.

Learning to Swim Upstream: OPNFV’s Approach to Upstream Integration - Heather Kirksey, OPNFV
The OPNFV project—a common integration and testing platform to facilitate NFV deployments that defines a consistent, functional stack—differs from more traditional code-based open source projects in that its work is focused upstream. Rather than re-event many wheels, the project leverages a variety of existing code bases from leading open source projects across compute, storage, and networking and fills gaps where needed to meet strict carrier-grade end user requirements. This approach is difficult and requires an extremely complicated set of requirements, but the result is a much needed common, de facto platform for the industry to test and build NFV products and services. Hear from OPNFV director Heather Kirksey on why the community chose to take this integrated approach, what’s been successful, and key lessons learned from this unique project.

Security Evaluation of NTP - Matthew Van Gundy, Cisco
Accurate time keeping is critical to the safe operation of many Internet systems.  A vast number of Internet systems use the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to synchronize their system clocks making the NTP reference implementation de facto critical infrastructure.

In late 2014 and early 2015, the disclosure of several serious vulnerabilities in the Network Time Protocol daemon (ntpd) raised awareness of potential problems with NTP.  As a member of the Linux Foundation Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) Steering Group, Cisco

Define Distributed Services Using Full Programming Language - Pini Reznik, Container Solutions
During the last year we were working on the Cisco led projects Mantl, Shipped and Contiv and been building mesos frameworks, terraform providers and other complex projects in the programmable infrastructure area.
During this time we have realised that we need a fully functional programming language to define distributed services rather than currently accepted declarative definitions such as those used by Mesos Marathon, Kubernetes, swarm and others.
Following this realisation we started developing a system for defining complex services using a fully defined programming language (currently Groovy) and capable of scheduling those services on any popular scheduler or directly on public or private clouds.
In the future, we are planning to add policy based infrastructure definitions to allow developers to express their infrastructure needs using high level business language.

How Your Firewalls will Break in the World of Containers and Cloud Native - Christopher Lifienstolpe, Project Calico
The new "cloud native" stack has many advantages for deploying
application stacks over previous models. One of the primary ones is
that it decouples the application from the underlying infrastructure
(not just the hardware, as virtualization does) rendering the
infrastructure as undifferentiated services to be consumed without
having to understand much about their specifics.

This fits very well with the very dynamic, ephemeral nature of
micro-service based application stacks. However, when we get to
security, there is a great consternation as to how to secure these new
environments, as the legacy models just will not cope with that same
dynamic, ephemeral environment. The reason - they tightly couple the
infrastructure with the application. If we've blown that apart for
all the other services, why keep the model for security.

There is another way, security should be defined by the application
itself, and managed as part of the application life-cycle, not as part
of the infrastructure. There has been a lot of work in the network
SIG in this area, and we'll explore it in this talk, and maybe even
extrapolate that work beyond the boundaries of the network.

The proposed audience is anyone who is designing or implementing a
cloud native or micro-services infrastructure and cares about securing
it (or at least has to deal with people who do). We will discuss how to tie security requirements and their enforcement to the application components themselves and the first steps down that road that are taking place in the network SIG. We'll also look further afield and discuss the implications and possibilities of using the same model beyond the network realm.

Top 10 Things We Learned About Data Persistence - Val Bercovici, NetApp
Containers have a reputation for ephemity, which cuts against the grain of data's full lifecycle. Data storage, availability, management, governance, control, protection, transparency, authenticity, retirement and destruction are established information management topics which must be addressed by new containerized apps.
Cloud Native and modern micro-service based apps are often continuously developed, integrated and deployed. This talk will help the audience map the CD/CI lifecycle of containerized apps to the full lifecycle of our ever-growing Data Universe.
This talk is geared towards App & DevOps architects. Attendees will gain a deeper appreciation for the full scope of the modern data management domain. They will also learn from best-practices of practitioners integrating containers with data persistence systems such as databases and filesystems.

Upstreaming in a Downstream Environment - Dinh Nguyen, Altera
Altera has been, for the most part, a closed-source company with little, if any, contributions to any open-source projects. So when Altera decided that they needed to upstream everything possible for supporting the Altera SoCFPGA platform, most people in the company did not really understand what that really meant. From IT infrastructure, to all levels of management, Dinh had to educate that upstreaming with community involvement was the way to go for this platform. That it will yield benefits in the future. This also involved members of Dinh's own development team, who have never contributed before, to start contributing. And to also get into the mindset of upstream first. For example, the Linux support for Altera's SoCFPGA platform is mostly upstreamed, so Dinh's team can move to the latest Linux kernel within 1-2 hours of a kernel release.

Container Standards for the Next Generation of Cloud, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Software Foundation - Craig McLuckie & Sarah Novotny, Google
Enterprises today face unique technical challenges with scale. The emergence of IoT, the transition to a mobile enabled customer base and mobile enabled worker, and the need to derive critical competitive signals from 'data lakes'. It turns out that a small group of companies tackled the same problems years ago, and co-evolved a set of common patterns for internet scale computing. These patterns are the only practical way to operate at internet scale, but also help tremendous value in dealing with the sprawling numbers of traditional applications, and the issues facing building complex interconnected apps that power the enterprise back office. In order for enterprise to make the transition, and to truly unlock the power of the startup community to drive these technologies, we as a community need to come together and create smart standards to support the transition to cloud native computing. We will talk through this transform from Google's perspective, and the role of Cloud Native Computing Foundation in helping the world benefit from internet scale computing approaches.

GrimoireLab: a toolset for software development analytics - Jesus M. Gonzalez, Bitergia
Curiously enough, the most widely used services for analyzing free, open source software development use proprietary software. We started to reverse this situation some years ago, with the development of the Grimoire toolset, which researchers and some companies have used. Now, we're rewriting them from scratch, using our experience to build a more efficient, flexible and ambitious system.

This talk will present GrimoireLab, the new toolset. It is designed to be modular, supporting many data sources, different storage options, and several analytics libraries. Currently, it already supports Git, Gerrit, Bugzilla, GitHub, and mailing lists, and during the next months will grow to support analytics of about 20 data sources. The current storage used is ElasticSearch, and results are displayed in Kibana-based dashboards. All the machinery is written in Python. http://grimoirelab.github.io

Skydive: Real-time Network Topology and Protocols Analyzer - David Neary, Red Hat
SDN solutions are complex and troubleshooting/monitoring them is even harder. It seems that while we have improved the automation of the network we have lost visibility and operability. For example, in order to troubleshoot an issue you have to understand the network in general but also to have a deep understanding of how the SDN solution is implementing the network. And if you have multiple SDN solutions deployed – for example, managing containers on VMs on a cloud platform - finding the root cause of an issue starts to be really hard.

In this presentation, I will introduce a new project called Skydive which some colleagues started a few months ago, which aims to bring back visibility and operability to the network. I will explain the global design and concepts, how to setup a lab environment, and what we would like to see happen next.

Using a Service VM as an IPv6 vRouter - Bin Hu, AT&T
IPv6-enabled OPNFV is a meta-distribution of platform with de-facto provisioning and configuration of IPv6, upon which test harness, additional components and functional blocks and/or tools can be built and integrated.
This presentation will review a gap analysis with IPv6 features in OpenStack and Open Daylight, and a novel use case of supporting the capability of an IPv6 vRouter on a VM in OpenStack + Open Daylight environment. The VM is capable of (1) advertising IPv6 Router Advertisements (RA) to the VMs on the internal network; and (2) IPv6 Forwarding (i.e., North-South traffic). This novel use case expands IPv6 vRouter capability to any VM and allows for any 3rd-party solution, e.g. IPv6 vRouter VNF, as an alternative of Neutron Router or ODL Router. Thus it enables open innovation. Various aspects in devops and the potentials of new business scenarios will be described.

The audience is anyone who is interested in learning how to best leverage IPv6 capability in OpenStack environment, especially when OpenStack is integrated with other SDN Controllers in real-world deployment. Attendees can expect a detailed review of gap analysis of use case with OpenStack and Open Daylight, and how to configure this novel use case to use a service VM as an IPv6 vRouter, its related user stories, and business scenarios enabled by IPv6 platform, current state and expectation of evolution to address the challenges.

Leveraging the Open Source Development Model inside Your Company - Mark Gisi, Wind River Systems
The Open Source Movement is responsible for creating some of the most valuable software of the 20th and 21st centuries. It gave us successes such as Sendmail, Linux, GCC, Apache Server, Eclipse, Git, Firefox, MySQL, Drupal, Python, WordPress, Hadoop, and Open Stack, just to name a few. All were developed using a loosely coupled, widely distributed, open development model. While economists and sociologists continue to scratch their heads trying to make sense of it all, one thing no one refutes: the Open Development model has been very successful. The question is: Can companies deploy this method for internal development to obtain similar successes? Wind River is conducting a pilot project to test the hypothesis that we can. We will discuss why the Open Development model works internally, how it fosters innovation and the benefits to both individual engineers and the company collectively.

Cloud Native or Digital Disruption? - Ken Owens, Cisco Systems
Developers are driving the market for cloud consumption and leading each industry into the new era of software defined disruption. There are no longer questions about elastic and flexible agile development as the way to innovate and reduce time to market for businesses. However, Physical and cloud Infrastructure does not enable application development platforms natively nor provide the ability to create applications that are cloud native with elastic services. In addition, businesses are moving to application development architectures leveraging microservices which are becoming more strategic to their business strategy. When making the decision to build and operate an application on physical or on a cloud platform, microservices became central to your application architecture and strategy.

CEO's want to drop them in to solve collaboration issues. CIO's hate having to choose, qualify, deploy and maintain them. At the end of the day, are tools really the only issue when it comes to building successful collaborative development projects? There's been an increasing amount of focus on innersource in the last several years - bringing open source best practices inside the corporate firewall to increase collaboration.

Top 10 Myths about End Users in OS Projects - Neela Jacques, OpenDaylight
There are many different views on how, when and to what extent OpenSource projects should involve end users. End users themselves are struggling to figure out how to get involved in and at what level. They often ask: How much do we need to invest? What types of resources? When in project’s life cycle? Unfortunately because the ubiquity of open source as an innovation model is so new many developers, vendors and end-users have gravitated around a set of beliefs and experiences that may or may not be accurate or useful. We’ve all heard “OSS comes from volunteers developing in a garage” or “vendors are evil.” In this session, led by Neela Jacques, Executive Director of OpenDaylight Project, we will together look at a series of myths that all of us hear often and look at learnings from OpenSource Projects and users that seem to have gotten this right.

Generations of Open Source and What to do About It - Amye Scavarda, Red Hat
Open source has moved from experimental to mainstream in the past 10 years, but has definitely changed the landscape in the last 15 years. Because of that, we have a few generations of people within the broader galaxy, and they probably have no idea that all of these communities exist, much less the fact that there's a whole Milky Way of a technology industry out there.

We're at a point where there are at least three different generations within the open source communities: founders, creators, compilers - we're bound to have more. How do we move forward at the same time as we value. challenge and honor our past? How do we let founding principles guide where we go next, in a landscape that changes every five minutes?

The Open Container Initiative, the CNCF, and You! - Jeff Borek, IBM
The technology industry has been abuzz about cloud workload containerization since the open source Docker project became a phenomenon in early 2014.

As the potential of both technologies emerged, many wanted to see shared governance over the baseline container specification and runtime technology to ensure an open cloud ecosystem.

This past December, two new groups were launched under the guidance of the Linux Foundation with a goal of creating open, industry standards. The first called the Open Container Initiative (http://www.opencontainers.org), and the second called the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (http://cncf.io).
Join this session for an update on the latest on these important working groups, why you should care, and what you can do to help.

Open Source Development and Sustainability: A Look at the Bouncy Castle Project - David Hook, Legion of the Bouncy Castle Inc.
The Bouncy Castle Libraries are a collection of APIs in Java and C#. While the project is best known for its Java APIs and their use in Android, what is not so well known is that it has only recently had anyone working on it full time. The talk will look at the history of the Bouncy Castle project, how and why it has transitioned from being "just a hobby" and into (we hope) something "big and professional". David Hook will discuss various experiences in trying to support the project which have led up to the current commercial structure. David will also look at the efforts that have gone into preserving the project as an open source collaborative effort while at the same time trying to make development of the Bouncy Castle APIs sustainable.

How To Create Google-Like Infrastructure: From the OS to the Scheduler - Brandon Philips, CoreOS
The architectural patterns of large scale infrastructure are changing. The last decade we sped up server acquisition by putting software and APIs in control of this base infrastructure. This decade we will make our infrastructure better at running our applications easily, securely and consistently. To get there we will need to rethink the OS, remove single points of failure and put software in charge of more infrastructure decisions. Join this session for an overview of how we at CoreOS glue technologies like app containers, schedulers and self-updating OSes to create better application focused infrastructure.

How Open Source Cloud Platforms are Transforming Development and Deployment Patterns in Enterprises - Kamala Dasika & Jamie O'Meara, Pivotal Software
Enterprises are increasingly relying and investing in cloud platforms to quickly 
build new applications. Many have been encumbered by disparate systems, 
tools and technologies not optimized to work together and have sought a 
standard platform to address software delivery concerns throughout the 
lifecycle of an application. 

Backed by industry leaders and contributions from over 50 businesses, Cloud 
Foundry is a community driven, open source cloud platform that is emerging 
as the industry standard in transforming how teams develop and run 
applications.

Open Source Methodology for Nonprofit Technology - Deep Datta, Benetech Labs
Nonprofit organizations have become increasingly reliant on using web platforms, mobile apps, and social media as specific tools to achieve their goals. Increasingly, nonprofits are becoming tech-centric - not only are they using these tools to promote their mission, they are using them as a way to manage, measure, and engage end-users in real time. But, keeping technical tools up-to-date isn’t cheap and requires technical expertise. Nonprofits find that their technical capabilities become outdated quickly, and so they look to volunteers to help. But often, volunteers underestimate the time and experience needed to follow-through, and organizations consistently get let down by this strategy. During this talk, Deep Datta from SocialCoding4Good will review the challenges currently faced by technical nonprofits, and will introduce a new paradigm of solutions rooted in open source.

Understanding and Implementing Microservices via a “micro example” - Raghavan "Rags" N. Srinivas, IBM
Microservices is the new word in the developer lexicon. This talk is not intended to kill you with buzzwords nor is intended to make you an expert overnight but to help you in thinking about Microservices and the advantages it offers via decoupling, connecting to services as separate entities, independently developed and deployable units, how they can help CI/CD and so on.

Rather than attempt to boil the ocean and glaze you with all the details, we will walk through an extremely simple example of a queuing application and the benefits offered by Cloud Foundry as a platform for implementing microservices.

After attending this session, attendees will walk away with a better understanding of Platform as a Service, and Cloud Foundry in general, and Bluemix in particular and how the ecosystem enables a choice for deploying microservices to the cloud a lot easier.

Contribution Hygiene and the DCO - James Bottomley, IBM
All projects which accept patches need to follow processes to ensure the provenance both of the patches and their contributions under the required project licences. The DCO (Developer Certificate of Origin) process originally evolved by the Linux Kernel Developers in the wake of the SCO lawsuit has emerged as the best tested and least impactful contribution process. This talk will explain the DCO and how it works and compare it with more traditional contributor agreements. In particular, the vital the importance of source tracking will be explained as well as giving an overview of the legal underpinnings of the DCO and how it can be used to protect against both copyright and patent claims against the project.
