Enterprises have learned that Open Source is the way to develop great and mature software. Leveraging open source tools and packages allows the enterprise to go to market faster and have stronger applications. Therefore, using Open Source tools is a no brainer for developers. The lawyers on the other hand don’t see it the same way.

The speaker had the privilege of working with the Open Source approval and review process in a large security firm and will share his experience of that growling process.

Topic: Cloud

One does not simply learn OpenStack! <br>While major distributions have taken much of the guesswork out of getting up and running, without actually building from scratch it's hard to learn the intricacies of OpenStack. Plus there's no real guide for how to get started learning this stuff, from beginning to expert. In this session, we'll present a roadmap for learning by building - starting with Devstack, moving on to a step-by-step How-To, defining a POC architecture, and finally building a production-grade OpenStack cloud.

Audience: Everyone

Topic: General

The world is a mighty big place... or is it? The game Watch Dogs 2 has pulled together a fantasy world of a hacker that can control everything around him and amassed a huge audience of gamers around the world. Is this fantasy? Less than you'd think but in a very good way. As a 14 year old coder in this talk I'll show you examples of how the world is using things known as API's to connect you to all that is around you. Trust me our powers will only be used for good.
