Presented by leaders of multiple open source non-profit foundations, this session introduces choices of governance and organisation for those considering anchoring their community with a non-profit organisation.
Location: Portland 255
Call us crazy, but here is where you stand up an OpenStack cloud, from
scratch, in three and a half hours. Running full throttle through the
basics of OpenStack, this fast-paced tutorial will whirl through
authentication, image storage, networking, and compute at breakneck
speed. Not for the faint at heart.
Grab a drink and kick off the 15th edition of OSCON by meeting and mingling with exhibitors and fellow attendees. (Sponsored by Bluehost)
Location: Puppet Labs Headquarters, 926 NW 13th Ave. #210
Join Puppet Labs for our OSCON "Open" House Party! We are excited to open our doors and show off our new headquarters and meet all our Puppet Labs friends.
This talk is for technical leaders and managers who want their companies to do more in open source. I will give you a CC-licensed presentation template and techniques for explaining open source business models, communities, licensing, and contribution processes to executives and lawyers in your company. You can then customize this for your own company and make the pitch for more OSS involvement.
Many have speculated about why there are so few women in free and open source software. GNOME, in its Outreach Program for Women, addresses many of these issues with impressive success at attracting and then retaining talented women. 10 other organizations have now joined the OPW. In this talk, Karen will discuss why this Program is necessary and why it has been so successful.
It's widely accepted that learning any new programming language will improve your programming skills in general, but we don't often talk about how. This talk will cover some of the my takeaways after learning Go that have improved my Python and Java skills, as well as cover some bits about why Go is a great choice for those itching to learn a new language.
Successful Open Source and Free Software projects have an abundance of great contributors. A common challenge, however, are those tasks outside the expertise or interest of those contributors. Non-profit organizational homes provide an excellent way to solve that aspect of Open Source and Free Software. This session introduces many options that projects can choose from for a non-profit home.
This talk will explore some of the legal and policy implications of "post-open source software" or "POSS", a purported phenomenon characterized by development on github, no explicit indication of open source licensing, and no concern for project governance. Is any of this real, and if so, is it actually a problem?
Location: Sandbox Studios (420 Northeast 9th Avenue)
Join us to celebrate three years of the fastest growing open source cloud project! OpenStack launched at OSCON 2010, and we've made a tradition of celebrating each birthday during the conference. This year we're bringing the same laid back atmosphere to a bigger venue with some new twists to make it the best party yet.
Come hear some thoughts about how licensing models affect building an open source community and how their use has evolved over time.
Puppet is an immensely powerful tool, but it's not always obvious how to use Puppet correctly. I will explain guiding principles
of responsible Puppet design and architecture, walk through real-life examples to illustrate solid approaches, and illuminate Puppeteers of all skill levels. As a bonus, I will demonstrate ho
w to integrate into continuous integration platforms!
Using the public code review and automated testing infrastructure built for the OpenStack project itself, systems administrators for the core infrastructure also take advantage of this system to do systems administration for the project's core infrastructure in the open as well. Will discuss the infrastructure, tests we run against our changes and the challenges and successes we've encountered.
Turn your datacenter into a cloud, and then use that cloud to run a cloud. It's clouds all the way down!
Debugging concurrency errors can be difficult. Fortunately, Locksmith can help. Locksmith is an open source tool for detecting potential deadlocks in C, C++, and Objective C programs. It can detect common concurrency mistakes.

A quick overview of the Ceph project, current community development plans, and how anyone can get involved from the novice to the seasoned expert.
Last year in CNNMoney’s Best Jobs for Fast Growth, software jobs were 7 of the top 20, but averaged a “C” for benefit to society. We’re calling BS.
Mirage is a new operating system for the cloud which compiles source code in a functional language (OCaml) into type-safe microkernels that run directly on the public cloud. The compiler specialises appliances such as a web server or database into hundreds of kilobytes, marking a radical shift in how we can manage online services that are always struggling with security isusues.
Contributing to Free Software requires a delicate mixture of technical and social skills. Is the developer upstream not being responsive? Does your manager think you're wasting your time? Upstream University has successfully trained developers to become better contributors to projects such as the kernel Linux, and will give each participant a chance to learn new ways of resolving these problems.
