Attention, all thinkers and doers... pioneers and entrepreneurs... coders and innovators heading to LinuxCon: come join a group of fellow travelers who share your desire to drive Linux and open source-based solutions into the core of enterprise computing. Demos and dialogue will explore Linux and open source in the enterprise, and new innovations around Linux and IBM Systems. Seating is limited and lunch will be served, so please register early.
The Ally Skills Workshop 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: http://adainitiative.org/what-we-do/workshops-and-training/
More than a traditional BoF - a true meet-up - come join leading technologists like Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth; Docker's Tinkerer Extraordinaire, Jerome Petazzoni; and IBM's champion for open technologies, Dr. Angel Diaz, as we discuss how open technologies are driving Linux - and the future - without limits.
Employing a lightning talk approach, we'll handle such topics including:
Join us after the Booth Crawl for a screening of CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap, followed by a Q&A discussion with the filmmaker, Robin Hauser Reynolds.
CODE documentary exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap. CODE raises the question: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code?...
Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE documentary examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.
Containers are one of the most important innovations in the software development today. With the introduction of the Open Container Project ,it will prevent fragmentation and enable application portability among platforms, which are the ingredients developers require in order to build and deploy everything from retail and banking applications to streaming media services. Expecting to join OCI and CNCF, we plan to align more and more with the community.
The talk will introduce a new project that aims to promote the OCI by providing a universal testing framework for all of the container projects. Both testing and validation include the OCI specification, runC function, security and performance, as well as may other aspects which will be covered in the talk.
