Apache CouchDB State Of The Union - Jan Lehnardt, ASF
This talk is an overview over the past 24-36 months of the CouchDB project. Join us on a riveting tour through a near-death experience and a phoenix from the ashes-like rebirth of the project as well as major technological improvements. You will learn where Apache CouchDB stands today and where it is, boldly, going.

With the departure of its lead developer and the abandonment of the project by the company founded by three of the original CouchDB developers, many felt that CouchDB is dying. This couldn’t be further from the truth and this talk explains what happened and how CouchDB is more alive than ever and has a bright future ahead of it!

Apache JSPWiki - Siegfried Goeschl, ASF
Welcome to Apache JSPWiki - a Java-based Wiki using Java Server Pages (see http://jspwiki.apache.org). The presentation starts with a technical overview of Apache JSPWiki and turns to settting up JSPWiki for different environments & requirements. These environments range from your personal "Wiki On A Stick" running from an USB stick (including native launchers) up to a work-group setup deployed on a in-house server with integrated Lucene search.

CouchDB Replication: A Robust Sync Architecture For The Mobile World - Jan Lehnardt, ASF
Modern IT is mobile, but existing technologies are struggling to address the unique issues of our mobile infrastructure. From portable laptops to tablets and rarely connected phones, the demands from end user devices for our IT infrastructures are not only novel, they are hard. Apache CouchDB has been designed from the ground up to address all relevant issues. This talk will explain the challenges of the mobile world, where huge latency, intermittent connectivity and limited device capacity and computing power long for smart technology that solves it all and how CouchDB is the super hero that saves the day. We’ll look into mobile web and native apps, the fundamentals of data syntonisation, and how sync is the foundation for robust Offline First architectures and user experiences.

RTFM? Write a Better FM! - Rich Bowen, ASF
Ever notice that the projects most likely to tell you to RTFM tend to have the worst FM? That's because the virtues of a docs team - Dilligence, Patience, and Humility - happen to be the virtues of kinder politer people, too.

Come learn some tips of writing better documentation, providing better end-user support, and just possibly growing your project community.

Rich has been doing Open Source documentation for 20 years, and some folks say he's kind of good at it.

Secure Your Hadoop Cluster With Apache Sentry - Xuefu Zhang, Cloudera
Apache Hadoop users can drive adoption within their organization by implementing Apache Sentry Role Based Access Control (RBAC). This talk will discuss the current security problems Apache Hadoop's ecosystem, with a focus on authorization primitives in the context of Apache Hive and Apache SOLR, and how Apache Sentry addresses those problems. Apache Sentry's architecture and internals will be also be discussed, and the Apache Sentry roadmap and latest development will be given.

Apache Incubator: The Gateway Into The “Apache Way” And A Continual Mentoring Venue - Suresh Marru, ASF & Roman Shaposhnik, Pivotal
New projects enter the Apache Software Foundation through the Incubator program. Wealth of IPMC members guide the podlings teaching the Apache Way. Mentors and incubator community assist in learning through the releases process, albeit sometimes in a hard way. As the podlings graduate and enter into a self-governance mode, the priority of making stringent releases and the vigor of community engagement is often diluted. This talk will cover the perspective of those incubating project members who later came back to the incubator to help others learn from mistakes they made. Pay it forward or perverse sense of payback -- you’ll be the judge. Either way, Apache Incubator is a unique project under the ASF umbrella that brings together a diverse set of members all bound by the same goal: keep the “Apache Way” spirit alive in the projects joining the foundation and graduated projects.

Subversion With Local Branches (And More) - Branko Čibej, WANdisco
Apache Subversion is one of the most widespread version control systems currently in use. Whilst it has many useful features — and several well-known deficiencies — one of the most often repeated criticisms against it is that it is not "distributed" (or, more properly, "decentralised"), since is has a central repository and does not provide local branches and similar features of most popular DVCS. In this presentation, we'll discuss the Subversion developers' plans for introducing some of these features into Subversion.

Podling Post-Mortem: Looking Back On Incubation And Lessons Learned - Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier, Red Hat
As part of the Apache CloudStack project, I had a chance to see first-hand some of the good and bad choices made during Apache CloudStack's incubation. We'll take a look at a successful graduate more than a year after its exit from the Incubator, and where things went well and where they didn't go so well. Also will have plenty of advice for companies/projects looking to join the ASF.

OpenOffice At Apache: 2014 And Beyond - Andrea Pescetti, Apache OpenOffice PMC
It's already two years since OpenOffice graduated as a Top Level Project at Apache. We have more than 100 million downloads and a stable, working community at Apache. In an overall "state of the project" talk, we will see what we accomplished so far, what worked, what can be improved, what Apache gave to OpenOffice and what OpenOffice gave to Apache. Then we will see what can be accomplished in the medium-term future and how the community resources can be used to those aims.

Open Development In The Enterprise - Bertrand Delacretaz, Adobe
Open Development is often mentioned in open source circles nowadays, as a way to make projects really open, sustainable and meritocratic rather than based on people's titles or hierarchical ranking.
Does this model have its place in the enterprise? Can we apply the open source governance models to enterprise projects, where you'd usually expect a strictly hierarchical decision making process?
The open collaboration methods used by the some development groups at Adobe demonstrate that this is not only possible, but brings measurable benefits in terms of agility, employee satisfaction and quality of the final product.
This talk describes the key elements that make this possible, and provides pointers to developers or project leaders to start using such a model in their own projects.

Contributing To CouchDB - Jan Lehnardt, ASF
Become a Hero!

Open Source projects are only as good as the people that work on them. A project's first objective should be to increase its developer base. Consequently, this talk invites you to learn what little it takes to make a meaningful contribution to CouchDB.

This talk is a tour through the CouchDB Apache project and wider community. It explains the way the peoject works and where it can be improved, and how.

One of the bigger stumbling blocks for contributors is CouchDB's implementation language Erlang. However, there is plenty to do without ever touching Erlang and we'll show you what you can do.

Finally, if you are not afraid to dive in, we'll give you a gentle introduction to CouchDB's Erlang implementation.

Internet Of Things - Justin Mclean, Class Software
CPUs that cost thousands a decade ago are now cost a few dollars. The Arduino platform has lowered barriers to entry so that people with minimal tech knowledge can create special purpose computers capable of changing the world. Open Source Hardware is in autonomous drones, 3D printers, DNA replicators, satellites, city-wide sensor networks, smart houses and wearable computers. In this talk I'll take you through what Open Source Hardware is and isn't, OSW licensing, recent advances in OSW, show a range of projects and demonstrate what's possible now, and warn about some the threats (lack of protocol standards and vendor lock in to name two) that may hinder the growth of Open Source Hardware.
