OSCON
through

If the first years of OSCON were about opening the minds of big business to the philosophy of open source, are the years ahead about opening the minds of the open source community to the possibilities of its future? As open source becomes fully integrated into the corporate environment, OSCON helps to define, maintain, and extend the identity of what it means to be open source.

OSCON focuses on the substance of technology, not the shadow, filtering the information that most merits attention and preparing participants for curves and challenges in the coming year and beyond. OSCON is the place to be inspired and challenged, renew bonds to community, make new connections, and find ways to give back to the open source movement. OSCON has also become one of the most important places to make open source related announcements, and to unveil projects and products.

Open source is a fundamental principle at the core of many established and emerging technologies, driving the future of the computer industry. OSCON explores the open source technologies that are here to stay, what will broaden the foundation, and what will lead the way to unexpected places and innovations.

"For those who have not been to OSCON, it's a great technical conference covering the whole spectrum of open source, including Linux, MySQL, the LAMP stack, Perl, Python, Ruby on Rails, middleware, applications, cloud computing, and more. OSCON always has great keynotes, tutorials, and evening Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. As with many conferences, a lot of the meat takes place in hallway conversations and impromptu sessions." - Zack Urlocker, InfoWorld

TiE Oregon: Starting Up - The Open Source Way
Stoel Rives LLP

An Open Source company landing $5million in venture funding from one of the nation's leading venture capital firms?

That's a story in itself. But when you realize it's a Portland firm - Puppet Labs, and that the investment was lead by Kleiner Perkins Caulfield, you will want to hear the story straight from the horse's mouth - CEO Luke Kanies of Puppet Labs, the makers of a leading open source data center automation and configuration management framework.

Joining him to talk about the opportunities and challenges of an open source start-up will be Stuart Cohen, CEO of CSI (Collaborative Software Initiative), a company that introduces a process for companies to collaboratively build software applications.

Open Source has typically been associated with altruism - software that is given away free and is open to modification by users. The concept became a household word when Portlander Linus Torvalds developed the Linux operating system. Now the list of Open Source and Free Software today includes cutting edge solutions to large scale problems in multiple domains. From languages to runtimes, cloud infrastructure to databases, the best solutions are open-sourced. Leading companies are building on top of open-source components, while giving back to the community. But open source is not just about being cost-effective,it is becoming the key to innovation.

How do open source start-ups thrive in this eco-system? Come and learn from the founders of two innovative start-ups!

Register Now: Limited capacity for this event! Event will be on the 19th Floor.

Registration and Cancellation Policy: Registration: Online Registration closes at 12:00 Noon of the day of the event. Cancellation: All Registration Fees are Non-Refundable and No Credit is offered for cancellations.

Citizenry / ePDX Code Sprint
Cloud Seven Cafe

Come help work on Citizenry!

Citizenry is a Ruby on Rails project that powers ePDX, Portland's tech directory, and other similar sites across the country.

Specifically wanting to work on:

  • Setting up a copy of Citizenry on Heroku to find the pitfalls involved, improve documentation, and fix related bugs.
  • Evaluating the possibility of converting the app a Rails engine to make it easier for people in other communities to customize.
  • Allowing people to add multiple links to their profile, including automatic linking to other authorized profiles.
  • Enabling third-party editing of associations (e.g. adding projects to a company)

This is pretty casual, as code sprints go. Basically I'm planning to wander over to Cloud Seven and hack on Citizenry stuff and anyone who wants to join me is welcome. — @reidab

Self Balancing Robots 101

Glenn Phillips

Glenn Phillips got into the computer business around the era of the Mac Plus. Glenn's last job was the owner of Gorge Networks Inc. a rural Internet provider using fixed wireless and dsl. The business was sold in 2010 and Glenn has been on the Obama plan ever since.

Glenn became interested in the Arduino a couple years ago, but he had no programming experience. At some point in the process Glenn began to control servos and motors from his old RC collection. Computer control of motors was fun, interesting and possibly a job in the future.

Self balancing robots seemed to be the holy grail of motor control! Constant feedback from sensors is processed and translated to power and direction of the motor. Any issue with any component of the system is immediately apparent.

Glenn is also a cheap Yankee so his creations use salvaged parts from electric bikes, scooters, wheelchairs, laser printers and computers.

Glenn's presentation will cover the basics of self balancing robots:

  • Overview of accelerometers and gyroscopes
  • Control software
  • Motor controllers
  • Battery and electric motor selection

The Church of Robotron

Learn about the mutant savior and our efforts to save the last human family.

We will talk about the Chuch of Robotron installation at Toorcamp 2012. It involved many different types of materials, skills, and work. We used microcontrollers, plywood, and cast away junk to create a brand new immersive experience of Robotron 2084. On top of that, we had performance, writing, and art to complete the branding of the Church. We will show what a lot of people working together can accomplish.

We hope to inspire you to take up the two eight ways!

Speaker:
Gwen Shapira

Bio:
Gwen Shapira is a principal data architect at Confluent, where she helps customers achieve success with their Apache Kafka implementation. She has 15 years of experience working with code and customers to build scalable data architectures, integrating relational and big data technologies. Gwen currently specializes in building real-time reliable data-processing pipelines using Apache Kafka. Gwen is an Oracle Ace Director, the coauthor of Hadoop Application Architectures, and a frequent presenter at industry conferences. She is also a committer on Apache Kafka and Apache Sqoop. When Gwen isn’t coding or building data pipelines, you can find her pedaling her bike, exploring the roads and trails of California and beyond.

Title:
Stream All Things - Patterns of Modern Data Integration

Abstract:
80% of the time in every project is spent on data integration: Getting the data you want the way you want it. This problem remains challenging despite 40 years of attempts to solve it. We want a reliable, low latency system that can handle varied data from wide range of data management systems. We want a solution that is easy to manage and easy to scale. Is it too much to ask?

In this presentation, we’ll discuss the basic challenges of data integration and introduce design and architecture patterns that are used to tackle these challenges. We will explore how these patterns can be implemented using Apache Kafka and share pragmatic solutions that many engineering organizations used to build fast, scalable and manageable data pipelines.
