The Ally Skills Workshop, presented by the Ada Initiative, teaches men simple, everyday ways to support women in their workplaces and communities. Participants learn techniques that work at the office, at conferences, and online. The skills we teach are relevant everywhere, including skills particularly relevant to open technology and culture communities. At the end of the workshop, participants will feel more confident in speaking up to support women, be more aware of the challenges facing women in their workplaces and communities, and have closer relationships with the other participants.
Participants of all genders are welcome! The workshop works best with about 20-30% women, so we encourage everyone who is interested to apply. For more information on the Ally Skills Workshop click here.
It wasn’t too long ago that artisans, bathed in the glow of molten metal, forged parts that would go on to make up bigger, more powerful machines. Today, we call those artisans developers. Instead of metal, they use bits and bytes in the cloud to forge a modern application architecture that supports public, private and hybrid application deployment. One that enables users and developers to move their applications wherever they need to go. And it’s built on a growing, vibrant ecosystem.
Nowhere is this epic shift in how things are made more visible than the meteoric adoption of Cloud Foundry. In this talk, Chip Childers, VP of Technology for Cloud Foundry Foundation, will give attendees an inside look at the industry movements and the technological requirements that are driving Cloud Foundry's rapid adoption. Most importantly, he will walk through how organizations are responding to the challenge of continuous innovation, what's driving modern application architectures, and how the Cloud Foundry platform uses specific constraints in order to fulfill it's promise to application owners.
The OpenDOF Project is an open-source solution to device, gateway, and cloud communications that includes a standardized object model and secure communication. The project was incubated for 10 years inside of Panasonic, and released in March of 2015.
Security and scalability are critical elements of any Internet of Things solution. Unfortunately, most engineers are not experts in security and have no experience in architecting large-scale systems. This presentation will discuss two open-source solutions to these problems, covering the device, gateway, and cloud.
The presentation will briefly discuss object and security models, and then discuss issues surrounding time-series data collection. Finally we will demonstrate an open-source toolkit for securely gathering data and storing it a variety of cloud storage options including AWS DynamoDB and MongoDB. Participants will leave with the knowledge to start their own data-collection projects using the toolkit.
In this talk, we will discuss how different components of Linux networking userland can come together to form a consistent, manageable and highly available control plane for networking devices.
