A regular session timeslot has 45 minutes. Attendees typically have intermediate to advanced Linux & Open source experience and are looking for practical content to enhance their knowledge. Most valued sessions include best practices, code samples and/or live demos. Besides regular technical sessions, we are also looking for hands-on labs proposals, interactive workshops and unconference-style sessions.
• Technical session - a 45 minutes presentation style session featuring technical content. Keynotes, and early-bird sessions are also considered to be technical sessions.
• Hands-on labs (HOL) - a 95 minutes session that features self-guided lab descriptions for participants who bring their own laptops to experiment with certain technology. Typically a HOL features one or more instructors for troubleshooting.
• Interactive workshop - a 45 minutes workshop with interaction with the attendees. An interactive workshop is ideal to present a new product or service (even if work is in progress).
• Unconference - a 45 minutes facilitated, participant driven session centered around a theme or purpose. This kind of session will allow for more audience interaction led by a discussion leader.
Open (your) enterprise:
Over the years we’ve included many different viewpoints on open source. Among those is how enterprises can use, benefit from, and give back to open source—and why they would want to do so. This special track is all about the business side of open source, specifically case studies. Aimed at business stakeholders from CXOs to team leads, this track will give insight into why your software development/engineering teams chose open source, why open source is already coursing through the veins of your business and why that is something you can use to your advantage. Open source is a catalyst for digital transformation. o This topic will also be about how to open your organisation for these new trends and technologies. How can you transform your organisation to embrace the trends in the market. Case studies and experience from the field are great to share with others.
Let’s take a look at how architectures like microservices and serverless are necessary in the time of continuous development and delivery. How to move towards an open infra. The cloud has been around for a while now and in that short time it has become a pillar of how software development works. Three of the biggest vendors—AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform—are not happy as is and keep pushing the envelop with more and more services. This track’s purpose is to help situate attendees around how cloud strategies and their implementation can impact their business, answering questions like: How do you know what services you would benefit from? How do you make a choice of what vendor to use? What is the best way to transition from the data center to the cloud? Bring your experience and share it with the community.
Taking a step back from the code, how do you actually get things done? How do you let all the linensing work efficiently togeterh. From planning and discussions with colleagues from other departments, how do you give you and your team a better chance of getting things right? How do you ensure that you iterate rather than blindly head towards what you think stakeholders want? We want to see best practices and case studies on how you made a difference by taking a hard look at the ‘how’ of how you are delivering and deploying software and giving your company the best shot at leading the pack.
Like open source, devops, and the agile methodology, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence promises to be a significant shift in software development.
Cryptocurrencies have taken hold of our imagination and some of our wallets, but the real game changer is the underlying technology. Decentralized and secure, blockchain is beginning to transform how we deliver data like medical records. This technology is on the brink of exploding and transforming financial, medical, and retail industries.
With the help of open source frameworks, AI is taking software development to a new dimension. More specifically, how can we utilize data within that development to create smarter ‘things’ and gain insight via machine and deep learning that we humans couldn’t do to this point, well at least not in the time it takes our computers? Are you doing some great work with any of the open source frameworks? Do you have a new way to incorporate deep learning into an app? What about interpretability? As AI makes its way throughout industries let’s be sure to share best practices and ideas on how to create next generation software and businesses outcomes.

The Open labs will be organised on the marketplace and is working to to accelerate the growth of different high-impact open source software projects and promote an open source culture of accessibility and increased productivity. The open labs would contains hands on labs, hackatons or workshops with for example the IBM Watson, Azure, Kubernetes, Google Cloud or Elastic …..Do you have an idea of working together and you can help as a workshopleader during the day? Let us know!
