Open Source has been one of the greatest technology and innovation enablers for the past few decades. However, with the rise in popularity and importance of open source, there have been many new threats to how open source can continue to function as an open enabler for us all. From non-open licenses to closed governance models to regulations restricting open source, our open source community faces many challenges as we evolve.
The modernization of software into cloud-based services has become an integral part of business transformation, enabling organizations to leverage the scalability and flexibility offered by the cloud. In this context, Eclipse AQAvit, a project under the Eclipse Adoptium banner, aims to facilitate the verification of Java SE and related technologies, specifically focusing on testing in cloud-based environments.
In the recent years, DevSecOps has grown exponentially in popularity and has taken the centre stage in the development of cloud native applications. DevSecOps is the practice that enables “software, safer, sooner” by automating the integration of security at every phase of the software development lifecycle, from initial design through integration, testing, deployment, and software delivery.
Join us for a live panel discussion with InnerSource practitioners! InnerSource is the application of the best open source practices within the walls of corporations. Although this does not necessarily means that companies will produce open source, this includes a journey where developers, middle managers, and chief level will be closer to understanding and behaving as if they were producing open source.
The growth and interconnectedness of open source projects require nowadays a data-driven approach to community management. Growing, nurturing, and facilitating discussions now brings new approaches to community development. The Eclipse Foundation, in a joint effort with Bitergia, is running a new service to cover the knowledge and technology gap needed to scale community managers' skills to the next level.
The Death Star from Star Wars was an impressive though fictional feat of engineering, but it had a fatal flaw that was exploited by the rebels. Similarly, modern applications are at risk due to the many open-source dependencies used worldwide that can contain vulnerabilities. Some are just mistakes, and others, like that iconic exhaust port, were deliberately created.
This presentation will provide an overview of the Eclipse Foundation’s Intellectual Property Due Diligence process, which will include a high-level discussion about the historical challenges that have confronted the open source software community regarding licensing and copyright, a summary of the Eclipse Foundation’s current approach to IP due diligence, and a preview of some of the initiatives we are working on to improve the accuracy and efficiency of our IP due diligence process in the future.
In big companies you may find nearly every kind of developer ecosystem starting from Embedded C Development and sophisticated build-chains to JAVA Maven or Gradle, just to name a few. The challenge for the Open Source Office is to establish and maintain the same level of quality concerning the Open Source Management for all of them. In this talk the author will show how standards like SPDX, defined Open Source Management templates and even automation tools like OSS Review Toolkit can help you to manage the heterogeneity.
