  • A GNU priority for a GNU era

    by John Sullivan

    At its 30th anniversary in September, GNU announced an, ahem, GNU
    priority for the project -- a focus on advancing and protecting user
    freedom on the Web and the surrounding Internet.

    The project that started around a central concern for individual
    freedom on individual computers is turning more of its energy toward
    helping users protect themselves from the threats posed by so-called
    "cloud computing" and "software as a service."

    An effective response to these threats will have two prongs. One will
    be critical, identifying the problems and threats and the agendas
    behind them. Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) needs to kept out
    of the core language of the Web. JavaScript needs to be treated the
    same as other software -- it needs to be free, for all of the same
    reasons our operating system needs to be free. We need to resist
    enticements to replace our local computing with remotely hosted
    software and tenuous promises.

    The other prong will be productive, striving to write the software
    that needs to be written for users to be able to conveniently do all
    of the things they want to do using only free software on their own

    I will talk about the role of FSF and GNU in this project, and invite
    conversation about that as well as other possible approaches.

  • Oh my god they stole my code! (really?)

    by Didier Donsez and Stephane Ribas

    “Our passion about Open Source Software (OSS) and Hardware (OSH) became quickly unmanageable and ends up in growing a lonely business into a worldwide open community almost overnight! At last, we were not alone believing in that the development born in our garage a few years ago and got rapidly help from around the world. Enthusiastics rushed to propose contributions and wanted to commit around the clock. Overwhelmed by that wave of free services, we moved on the scale to sceptical, satisfied, happy, anxious and eventually desperate. We wanted to share our ideas and hopes about that piece of codes and we succeeded well above our expectations and that unmanageable success is what killed us and our dream. Today we are back to two people around an incredibly complex piece of code which will take us century to understand and debug.”

    That story could have been true and may definitely reflect a lot of effort wasted in the OSS & OSH domain by coders and designers who only wanted to share their passion. Indeed, OS communities host most of the visible developments and without them, growing software/open hardware into an operational and mature (commercial) product is a hard task for a group of people no matter their excellence. Of course some OS products have been able to generate enough momentum to develop into a well-established communities but how many have disappeared mined by problems not always technical?

    Based on the creation of the AspireRFID project, this talk describes the true story of an Open source and open hardware project used everywhere at anytime without the original authors and contributors aware of!
    We will review the project, the way it has been build, gives recommendations to industrials and scientist to create in safety way a community and why not leverage the creation of an eco system that will push forward the creation of values (in dollars, in knowledges, in partnerships, new projects, new usage, new skills).

    Often we hear that scientist codes are stolen by industrials? is true ? really true?

    Come to this session and let's speak about it throughout the true story of the AspireRFID project!

  • Making it happen in the UK: From Policy to Reality

    by Mark Taylor

    In his 2009 Open World Forum talk, Mark Taylor described the UK as the 'Sick Man of Europe' in terms of Government Open Source... how times have changed! His 2009 predictions included a change of Government, a policy focus on Open Source, and a rapid leap-frogging to become one of the leaders in Government and Public Sector adoption of Open Source and Open Standards.

    It is no exaggeration to say that the UK is now one of the clear leaders in Public Sector adoption of Open Source in Europe, perhaps even the world.

    Open Source and Open Standards, alongside SME engagement and innovative approaches to procurement are now at the very heart of UK Government Policy. The UK's Open Standards policy goes further than any other and includes mandation of royalty free standards.

    The Government's digital agenda is being implemented by the recently created 'Government Digital Service' which is itself a perfect case study in the use of Open Source, being built from Open Source components top to bottom. The Government's 'G-Cloud' initiative is a model of how to engage with innovative SMEs and drive down the cost of Public Sector procurement. The Government's security agency, CESG, will shortly be announcing the first ever Government-assured Open Source security product as well as adopting it themselves.

    Mark's talk will focus on how this rapid turnaround came about, give insight into the key players and current thinking, and predict what is coming up next.

    The UK Government are making Open Source happen, and this talk will explain how.

  • The evolution of Open Source Databases

    by Ivan Zoratti

    Database management systems have dominated the software industry and the Information Technology for almost 5 decades. For many years, this sector has been governed by the use and adoption of commercial software. In the second half of the 1990s, the first open source databases started their timid moves, until today, when the majority of the data of the planet is managed by open source software. In this session we will analyse the current offering of open source solutions to manage and handle your structured and unstructured data, your transactions, your big data, your multimedia content. We will evaluate the differences between commercial and open source solutions and we will learn how it is possible to manage the whole lifecycle of a piece of information solely with open source - and why this is much better than their more expensive closed source counterparts.

    At 9:15am to 9:15am, Friday 4th October

  • Xen Project : Moving a commercial open source project to an open source Foundation

    by Lars Kurth

    In April this year, Xen became a **Linux Foundation Collaborative
    Project**. 6 months later it is time to take stock. I will start with a
    **brief introduction** of the Xen Project, explain the **key challenges**
    the project had under Citrix' stewardship, explain why Xen moved
    to the Linux Foundation, explore the challenges and
    considerations when choosing an open source foundation and
    explore the **impact on the Xen community to date**. The talk will
    centre around the core question of whether open source
    foundations provide a better collaboration platform for open
    source projects than corporate stewardship. The answer - at least
    for the Xen project - is clearly yes. However, following this route
    has its own challenges, trade-offs and risks.

  • A Themed Software Forge for European Projects

    by Roberto Galoppini

    In today's services there are several popular locations to **store
    code** (e.g. sourceforge, github, bitbucket) and a few more to build
    a **community around open source projects** (e.g. sourceforge,
    launchpad). In this growing ecosystem it is increasingly difficult to
    get your voice heard, and to draw attention to your specific open
    source software, or even to find the right piece of software to use.
    In this talk we discuss the advantages that **customized software
    forges** can provide for specific **target audiences**, as means to
    allow projects to thrive in **niche communities**, like European R&D.
    This is done in the context of the PROSE FP7 project who is
    promoting open source software in European projects, through a software forge targeting FP7 projects in the European space -
    opensourceprojects.eu. The PROSE divide and conquer strategy
    opens the discussion to the real value of a small, custom software
    forge, and how small features targeting the specificity of the
    community at hand can provide better support for open source
    software, allowing such a forge can survive in a world of giants.

  • Les collectivités locales françaises et l'open source : l'exemple de Toulouse, dynamique et pragmatique

    by Erwane Monthubert

    La ville de Toulouse fut la première grande ville française adhérente de l'association April, qui organise la promotion et la défense des logiciels libres en France. D'autre part, la ville de Toulouse et la communauté urbaine Toulouse Métropole sont en phase finale de migration des outils bureautiques vers les logiciels libres. Depuis quelques années des actions de sensibilisation auprès des publics sont menés avec les associations locales (centres culturels, seniors, etc). Toulouse a en outre lancé depuis trois ans son portail Open Data sur lequel les données de la communauté urbaine et des villes du territoire sont publiées sous la licence libre ODbL.

    The city of Toulouse was the first French big city member of the association April, who organizes the promotion and the defense of free software in France. On the other hand, the city of Toulouse and the Toulouse Métropole urban community are in final phase of migration of the office tools to free software. For a few years of the publicity campaigns near public have been carried out with local associations (cultural center, seniors, etc). Toulouse has open for three years its Open Data portal on which the data of the urban district and the cities of the territory are published under the free license ODbL.

  • Web Components, the future of Web developers

    by Julien Vey

    Templating, encapsulation, custom elements, databinding ... All modern web frameworks currently offer their own solution.

    But did you know that a W3C specification proposing to standardize all this is being written? The Web Components.

    In this presentation, we will take the lead! We will discuss the basic concepts of Web Components: ShadowDOM, Mutation Observers, Custom Elements, Model-Driven-View, Object.observe()... but also how to use them today with frameworks such as Dart, AngularJS and Polymer, a polyfill for Web Components developed inside Google.

  • WeIO - Platform for prototyping and producing connected objects, using the language of the Web

    by Uroš Petrevski

    WeIO is a wireless platform that enables rapid prototyping and easy development of connected objects, and thus opening the doors to Internet of Things those who are not necessarily low level electronics skilled programmers. In order to achieve that we had to shift the perspective a bit from ordinary approach in this domain. Although powered by Linux, WeIO does not insist in exposing Linux-like interfaces to the user. Instead it provides nice embedded application for development of beautiful web-based interfaces (frontend in Javascript/HTML5/CSS3) and/or backend logic (or mini programs) in pure Python.

    There is zero installation, your object has everything already installed - just point your browser and develop and/or control!

    WeIO advanced tools offer all the power of writing rich HTML applications that easily control electronics. No need for Linux system programming, cross compiling or low level hacking. WeIO is made with idea that users can concentrate on Design and Innovation! WeIO software and hardware are specially tailored to meet the needs of rapid prototyping and final product integration. It is based upon huge experience in physical computing and product design by Nodesign.net.

    WeIO embraces FLOSS philosophy and is published under GPL Licence 3. WeIO is based on confirmed and robust Open Source technologies like OpenWRT Linux, Facebook Tornado, Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery and Python.

    WeIO platform is developed and designed by Nodesign.net, Uros Petrevski and Drasko Draskovic.

  • Catalyzing the discovery, analysis and adoption of community-based OSS innovation

    by Jim Ahtes

    OSS has become intertwined with mainstream IT. According to Gartner, by 2016, **95% of IT organizations will leverage OSS technology and software in their IT portfolios**, recognizing the growing trend of not just standalone solutions but the greater implication of OSS assets being integrated within commercial products.

    It’s also a strong return to community engagement where more and more developers are leveraging the benefits of collaborative OSS development for quality and innovation; **from independent freelancers to the largest IT players**.

    But what is needed to help guide us through the maze of forges, integration issues and legal concerns when involving the constantly growing communities of this collaborative environment?
    One such approach is from MARKOS (www.markosproject.eu), an EU-funded R&D initiative, creating a **developer-oriented web platform** that searches aggregated info from OSS projects across a variety of forges and analyzes the interdependencies, software structures and license compatibility issues between them. It’s a developer-oriented service to efficiently and better leverage OSS assets in their workflow.

    We would like to have a discussion about **how to improve community engagement** to not just leverage one solution such as MARKOS, but for catalyzing the discovery, analysis and adoption of community-based innovation in OSS in general.

  • Community Summit

    The Open World Forum Community Summit is an annual open workshop focusing on the growth and management of open source communities. This year, leaders and practitioners from free and open source software communities will discuss the opportunities and challenges of open source as a collaborative innovation platform. With no cumbersome IP negotiations, no costly contracts, and rules of engagement simply defined by the license attached to the code, open source software is a fantastic mechanism for sharing innovation efforts. Open source creates value and drives innovation in emerging markets such as cloud computing, big data, embedded systems, Internet of things, machine to machine, etc. But in these areas, the industry is increasingly characterized by the raise of complex, highly capital-intensive systems and multi-year innovation programs. Is the game changing for open source communities?
