Stack roulette - 180 runtimes in 180 minutes!

Session Type: 
Tutorial [3 hours]
Speakers

OSGi is a mature and popular technology. One natural consequence of this is that users of OSGi technology can take advantage of a wide range of features, each with a number of available implementations. While even the basic OSGi platform has multiple implementations, the OSGi Compendium and Enterprise specifications dramatically increased the richness of the OSGi ecosystem, and also the number of potential implementation-combinations.

Given that there are so many options, how can you work out which bits will work together, and which bits won't? Surely building your own runtime is so complicated that it needs to be left to an expert integrator! In fact, thanks to OSGi's modularity, building your own stack is actually not as hard as you might think. In this tutorial we help you to build your own stack from your own selection of components, and to keep things interesting you will also be picking the components that the speakers have to use to build their stack!

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.

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.

Building an open community: feedback from the M2M trenches

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

When we launched the M2M Industry Working Group in 2011, we came up with the proposition of delivering all the enablers allowing the development of an end-to-end M2M solution, from the development of embedded applications to the communication with web infrastructures. It was clear from day one that in order to fulfill this promise, we would need to not only deliver actual working technology, but also to work early on building a community of early adopters, industrial users, and contributors.
