Mixing Your Open Source Cloud Cocktail - Mark Hinkle, Citrix
Add two parts virtualization, one part orchestration add a little networking shake and pour. Unfortunately cloud computing isn’t that easy but then again not all clouds are the same and tastes may vary. This talk will discuss how the varying open source technologies like OpenStack, Docker, LXC and others can be mixed together to make something that appeals to the needs of a wide variety of users. There’s also no problem in abstaining from building your own cloud but still benefiting from the open source tooling to maximize the benefits of the public cloud.

What Manufacturing Teaches About DevOps - Gordon Haff, Red Hat
Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In this session, Gordon Haff discusses the many lessons and processes that DevOps can learn from manufacturing and the assembly line-like tools, such as Platform-as-a-Service, that provide the necessary abstraction and automation to make industrialized DevOps possible.

LiMux And The FOSS Ecosystem - Stefan Koehler
The LiMux project has gained worldwide attention when the City Of Munich decided to switch to a linux­based client in 2003. Today more than 15.000 clients run on LiMux. This talk will shed light on the initial decision process, the projects history und current state. It will get you to know the technical base that secured the projects success and the infrastructure used for system and configuration management.

LiMux heavily relies on FOSS components like (K)Ubuntu, Puppet, LibreOffice or Firefox. The talk will highlight the requirements to use FOSS in an enterprise environment, how well these requirements were met and what developpers might bear in mind to make life easier for people actually using their software on a larger scale.

From the very beginning the LiMux projects has been under immense attack from various sides. Nevertheless it became a huge success and working on a linux­based client has become routine for the majority of Munich's employees. The talk will conclude by trying to draw a picture of the projects future and how LiMux and the community may interact closer to make both worlds better.

Non-Coders Wanted: How to Get and Keep Non-technical Volunteers - Deb Nicholson, OIN
Many distributions and projects sorely need writers for documentation, press releases and blogging or experts on outreach, fundraising and volunteer management or a friendly pack of translators, but aren't sure how to get them. Tweaking your volunteer pitch, looking in different places, being open to different communications channels, and finding ways to appreciate folks will help immensely.

Once you've got them, letting your new non-coding contributors get on with what they're good at will help them feel invested. In this talk, I'll discuss how to set parameters for non-coding tasks so that everyone is happy. Want more visibility, a better user experience, nicer materials or more well-organized events for your distro? Start bringing in folks with the skills and enthusiasm to make it happen!

An Introduction to Building Clouds on Apache CloudStack - Giles Sirett, ShapeBlue
Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform. In this talk, Giles will give an introduction to the technology, its history and its architecture. He will look common use-cases (and some real production deployments) that he sees across both public and private cloud infrastructures and where CloudStack can be completed by other open source technologies. Giles will also compare and contrast Apache Cloudstack with other IaaS platforms and why he thinks that the technology, combined with the Apache governance model will see CloudStack become the de-facto open source cloud platform. He will run a live demo of the software and talk about ways that people can get involved in the Apache CloudStack project.

Building a DevOps PaaS with Docker, CoreOS, and Apache Stratos - Lakmal Warusawithana, WSO2 Inc
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is a technology designed to make DevOps easier and allow developers to focus on application development. The PaaS takes care of provisioning, scaling, HA, and other cloud management aspects. Apache Stratos is a PaaS codebase develop in Apache and designed to create a highly productive developer environment while also supporting powerful deployment options. Integration with Docker and CoreOS bring Stratos more scalable and flexible PaaS while making developers/DevOps life easier to build their cloud applications. In this session Lakmal will dig deep into Apache Stratos. This will include installation and deploying sample applications using docker and CoreOS, showing how it can be extended to support new application containers. The session will include a demonstration of app deployment, provisioning, auto-scaling and more.

The Cloud in 10,000 Words (or 10 Pictures) - Gordon Haff, Red Hat
When it comes to computing, change is in the air. It always is, of course, but its pace is accelerating. Much is due to open source and the collaboration it enables and the intersection points that it creates. In this session, Gordon Haff will identify the most important trends and intersections of those trends as spotlighted by key research and observations about today's landscape. Where's growth happening? What's new and important to watch? Where are the new business and technical opportunities? It will be a broad view that cuts across computing, data, networking, and devices and distills down the quantitative and the qualitative into consumable nuggets that you can use to focus your attention and your time.

Open Source: The Customer Revolution Will be Cloudified - John Mark Walker, Red Hat
Open Source was a phenomenon made possible by the will of the customer and end user, pushing them up to the same status as developers. Cloud computing as an industry phenomenon is built almost entirely on open source pieces, but ironically (or perhaps, perversely) is used to create proprietary services. One could say that cloud computing is the revenge of the developer.

This talk discusses how the four software freedoms allowed customers and end users to achieve a more level playing field and provided a solid foundation on which innovation flourished. Innovation was an interesting by-product, not something pursued. The lessons learned from open source innovation should inform our choices in cloud-y computing, but cloud is currently dominated by proprietary services and obfuscation beyond the public API. Can we arrange the pieces once again such that innovation is an interesting by-product of processes and governance designed to give everyone a seat at the table?

Teaching Fish to Fly - John Hawley, Intel
In 2013, at the Embedded Linux Conference in Europe in Edinburgh, there was a race between a dog and a blimp. It was said that despite the dogs win, that the blimp had participated in the miracle of flight. In 2014 we intend to show that the brains of that dog can be transplanted and that it too, can participate in the miracle of flight.

The talk is mainly targeting taking an off the shelf embedded platform, Minnowboard Max, and it's use in UAVs, specifically quad-copters. With the ability to do real time computer vision, as well as various GPIO capabilities we'll explore the directions that significantly more autonomous UAVs can take with Linux and embedded platforms using, mostly, off the shelf components.

How to Run a Collaborative Project - Lars Kurth, Citrix
Collaborative development is at the core of successful open source projects. Yet to be successful in today's competitive open source world, it is increasingly important to master many different disciplines and to develop an edge.

In this talk we will cover a wide range of topics relevant to developers and members of open source communities who want to increase participation in their projects. Topics range from growing your developer base (e.g. by participation in GSoC, OPW and similar programs), rewarding participation, projecting momentum in the media and press, coercing large companies into contributing more and in different ways to your project, running community initiatives successfully and measuring success.

We will use real-life examples and share tools and mental models (e.g. open source flywheel and funnels) that help you make the right decisions for your project.
