An Orion Symposium - How to utilize Orion in the Community

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Orion has reached the point where many products and projects are starting to utilize the components that have been built by the Orion community. This Symposium will start off with a description of the Orion architecture and how it can be consumed, followed by several community presenters outlining how they've successfully integrated Orion into their applications. At the end of the Symposium, attendees should have an excellent idea about what technologies are available at Orion and how to start looking into integrating the pieces of Orion into their JavaScript based applications.

Marketing an Open Source Project

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Marketing is something we all do, whether we realise it or not. Marketing in Open Source starts when you're writing the software - who am I writing for? What will it do? Where will I announce it? I need a website! Marketing a project involves having a vision that attracts people to your project, knowing your target audience and how to reach them, and tailoring a product to meet their needs.

Ask not, what will the future bring for Eclipse. Ask what, Eclipse will bring for the Future Internet: The FI-WARE project.

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Nowadays more than 2,2 billion users worldwide use Internet, daily, from any kind of device and most of the business relies on the Internet as an “all-in-one” infrastructure spanning from data management to computational system. This means that the Internet as it was conceived more than 30 years ago may not be any longer suitable for today and future foreseen expectations and new ideas must be conceived and substantiated. These new ideas are embraced and materialized under the Future Internet concept.

The Cost of Eclipse Value

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

I would like to speak to the value of the Eclipse brand within the broader open source community and how I think it has both helped and hurt the Jetty project over the last few years. I would speak to both the positive and negative aspects of our experience, ideally offering some advice to projects that may be considering a similar step. I’ll focus on some of the minefields related to managing IP outside of eclipse and also once a project is within eclipse, and attempt to explain some of the more confusing aspects of policy we have run across.

Visualizing Community: The Eclipse Social Code Graph Revealed

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Visualizing Community: Eclipse’s Social Code Graph Revealed Speaker: Miles Parker

A hot topic among the Open Source Software (OSS) Community is community diversity. But can you really put a number on diversity? Quantifiers like commit statistics exist, but they miss the magic – those intangible qualities that make a community thrive. Sometimes a picture can tell the best story, and visualizations allow us to see the relationships between people, organizations and activities in all their complexity and richness.

Some of you may have seen the visualizations at Mik Kersten's keynote last year depicting the evolution of the Mylyn community and live explorations of the Eclipse social code graph. We'll show many more compelling examples of our community in action, and dive deeper into social network analysis of key ecosystems, revealing areas of strength as well as emerging challenges.

Bringing Open Source Inside: Leveraging OSS Methodologies for Enterprise Development

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

The open source community operates within a well-established set of operating norms that allows a broad, diverse community to build software capable of serving the most demanding needs. Recently, enterprises have begun asking what they can learn from this model to improve internal development processes. Can the open source development model work within a large enterprise? How can developers encourage this type of model on the job? What key lessons must organizations learn before bringing open source methods within their walls?

I bet your eclipse project is not open-source

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

The two main questions you should ask yourself when trying to determine whether an eclipse project is a good open-source citizen are:
- Is it transparent?
- How easy it is for external people to contribute?

The Eclipse Fondation has recently launched an ongoing effort to improve its processes and technologies, in order to lower the barrier for external contributions.
- project's meta-data now have a dedicated tooling easing their maintenance, increasing the project transparency
- the contribution process has been simplified
