As evidenced by Barack Obama’s successful presidential campaign, we have clearly entered the age of the social web. This developer-oriented workshop will emphasize the use and application of free, open building blocks for enabling social networking features on your site or service, and provide illuminating insights from some of the key figures creating these technologies.
Python is an interpreted, cross-platform, object-oriented programming language that is popular for a wide range of applications, one of which is Internet programming. This tutorial introduces current Python programmers to three distinct areas of Internet programming, each in self-contained one-hour lectures with a demonstration of code following each lecture topic.
Location: Meeting Room B1/B4
Semantic Technologies provide a simple, standardized methodology for representing, combing and sharing data and serve as the foundation for creating communities of open data. These technologies are both easy to learn and easy to use. This tutorial will introduce you to semantic programming using a variety of open source tools and programming techniques that you can use on your projects today.
Everybody wants innovation. Innovation is believed to be magical unicorn which will lead the way to success and riches, but this is easier said than done. In this talk I'll discuss lessons learned from two years driving innovation on eBay's Disruptive Innovation team; which strategies worked and which didn't, and what questions you should start asking first when someone tells you to "go innovate"!
In today's computing world, it can often feel like we are drowning in wave after wave of new trends such as mashups, service oriented architecture and cloud computing. This sea of concepts are simply the manifestation of an underlying change in IT. In this session we will explore what is happening and why open source is the dominant model for the future.
With all the hype surrounding multimillion dollar rounds of funding, it's easy forget there's another way to build a business: by being cheap and smart. By relying on open source, building in increments, and only buying what you need, it's possible to create a successful company on your own (or with a few co-founders). This talk will focus on just that: the frugal path to profitability.
Dynamic content created by and targeted at consumers is fuelling today’s web traffic growth and driving the evolution of the software stack. This evolution is a reversal of trends seen 10 years ago where the enterprise was the driving force in software development. The web is in the driver’s seat.

We will present Eucalyptus -- Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for
Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems -- an open source software
infrastructure that implements IaaS-style cloud computing.
The goal of Eucalyptus is to allow sites with existing clusters and server
infrastructure to host an elastic computing service that
is interface-compatible with Amazon's AWS.
In this tight economy, are you looking for a way to create a multi-blog portal for your company or organization without spending a zillion dollars? This talk will introduce how you can create a powerful, custom-branded blog portal supporting blogs and podcasts using the open source WordPress MU.
This talk will introduce Erlang, expanding on what the hype is all about. It will provide a high level technical overview, looking at its concurrency model and distribution models, software upgrade during runtime and scalability on multicore. It will describe its ever expanding community and domains of use, with examples on open source applications, commercial products and research projects
FreeTUIT is desktop programming with less code. A concise, declarative syntax for widget layout and an expressive API for runtime give you clean and maintainable wxWidgets or Qt cross-platform applications in minutes.
What would you do if you were tasked with building a Twitter clone which was highly scalable, made from open source components and deployed in this infamous thing we call the cloud?
In a time of tight IT budgets, open source has attracted much attention due to its cost advantages. But what is hype and what is reality? Join industry veterans, analysts and end-users as the look at the true costs and cost savings of open source. Participants will discuss how smart open source implementation can save money and where investments need to be made.
Cassandra is a third-generation open source distributed database that
marries Bigtable's rich data model with Dynamo's aggressive simplicity
to produce a uniquely compelling alternative to traditional relational

Plenty of FOSS projects yearn for visibility, within the tech press or
in the larger world. But few know how to respond when a journalist
indicates interest. These experienced writers and editors will explain
how your project can get attention and present itself in the best
These days, there are countless number of software applications and web services that have been developed using free and open source software (FOSS). Such tools have become so flexible, powerful, and universal, that it should also be possible for authors to write manuscripts using FOSS in the same way that applications are developed. In this talk, we present some case studies of this phenomenon.
