Getting Started with Docker Services - Mike Goelzer, Docker
Docker Services are a new abstraction available in recent versions of the Docker platform. Unlike the familiar 'docker run' command, Services are used to declare a desired application state that the Docker Engine will maintain.

In this presentation, Mike Goelzer will introduce the audience to Docker Services, explaining what they are and how to use them to deploy multi-tier applications. Other topics covered: load balancing, service discovery, scaling, security, deployment models, and common network topologies.

I will also present a live demo of a microservice application deployed and configured using Docker Services. All demo code will be available in Github.

These Four Questions Will Quickly Tell You If Your Company's OSS Contribution Is Worthwhile - Duane O'Brien, Paypal
Who Cares? Are We Still Using It? Are We Committing Our Own Resources? Can We Develop It All In The Open? By asking these four questions of code you're considering for open source, you can quickly determine if the code is a good candidate, or if you should explore other options. We will look closely at these four questions, why they matter, how to use them, and what those other options might be.

One Year of Deploying Applications with Docker, CoreOS, Kubernetes and Co. - Thomas Fricke, Endocode AG
The talk gives summary on one year of experience with containers in production. Rolling out distributed, heterogeneous applications was a difficult task. We present results from real customer projects, using Docker to deploy applications in a rapidly changing environment by Kubernetes and CoreOS.

Following a very strict approach, separating persistent and stateless applications, running everything in small units orchestrated by Kubernetes we could create descriptions of environments very rapidly, deploying complex environments with a single command. Examples in Java, Python and Ruby are shown. Security has been addressed to pass an extensive security audit.

The talk covers also operational challenges as implementing a deployment pipeline. logging under load, monitoring, distribution of passwords and configurations as limits to the containers resource management.

Blockchain, Linux, and Open Source Innovation - Matthew Golby-Kirk & Adam Jollans, IBM
Open source has become a hub for innovation, and one of the most exciting new use cases is Blockchain - a shared, immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions, which enables global businesses to transact with less friction and more trust. IBM is a founding member of the Hyperledger project at the Linux Foundation, and is actively contributing code, as well as working with a range of clients on Blockchain technology, and providing a test network for developers. This session will explain what Blockchain is and why it is important, show a demo of Blockchain in action, and discuss early customer implementations of Blockchain in practice.

Reproduce and Verify Filesystems - Vincent Batts, Red Hat
A side effect of the many new ways to package filesystems (here's looking at you, containers!), is that filesystems are being copied around without many of the features that traditional packaging provided (i.e. `rpm -qV ...`). Much progress has been made for reproducible checksums, of which Docker now includes for better content addressibility. In this talk Vincent Batts will review options for distributing filesystems with reproducibility, and verifying the at-rest outcomes.

Open Enterprise & Open Community - Empowering Each Other - Richard Brown, SUSE
Who said Enterprises and Open Source Communities can't mix?

SUSE Linux Enterprise is able to provide the solid platform to customers thanks largely to a community project that experiments and implements many of the innovative technologies that you see in commercial products today. That community project is openSUSE.

This talk will discuss the latest developments in the openSUSE Project, specifically the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling distribution, and the openSUSE Leap hybrid distribution.

It will also shed light on other technologies being developed inside openSUSE, such as OBS and openQA and share insights into some possibilities for the future.

It will also detail areas where the openSUSE project directly impacts Enterprise customers, and the benefits of SLE customers being more involved as community members.

Strategic Use of Free Software at Siemens - Karsten Gerloff, Siemens
Siemens is a large engineering company making highly complex products. Often, these products are mission critical for customers, or form crucial bits of civil infrastructure. A large and growing part of their functionality is implemented in software. Free Software components already are important building blocks in many Siemens products.

How does Siemens use Free Software, and why? What's the strategic importance of Free Software for the company? And how does Siemens engage with the global community?

While Free Software has been widely adopted in the software business world, there is considerably less public discussion about its take-up in the world of "traditional" industry. At the same time, industrial companies are increasingly making use of Free Software, and are becoming more involved in t

FOSSology: Efficient License Analysis (in HD!) - Michael Jaeger, Siemens AG
The Linux Foundation Collaboration Project FOSSology is an OSS framework and Web application mostly used to identify licenses and copyrights in OSS components. FOSSology involves different scan approaches and with a streamlined UI, it allows for efficient assessment of scanner findings. The output is a clarification of involved licenses in OSS components. The tutorial will show and explain: * How does the license situation of open source software look like? * What does FOSSology find actually? * How to generate results with FOSSology for SPDX and debian-copyright files? * How to do reuse of already analyzed components when scanning a newer version? * How can I handle new license statements? * HD? FOSSology enables identification of licenses at a high precision level - the tutorial explains the pitfalls of license statement interpretation and how to cover that.

Containers and Logging - Eduardo Silva, Treasure Data
The implementation of Linux Containers provides enough flexibility to isolate applications with restricted access to CPU, memory and networking within others. While this technology is stable and production ready, there are some challenges that still needs to be addressed for the containerized application when deployed at scale: Logging.

While some applications writes their logs to the file system, others use the generic STDOUT and STDERR interfaces; when the application runs on top of a framework or virtual machine (JVM), it may generate some extra information. Since monitoring is a must, handling this data coming from different sources and formats adds an exponential complexity, specially when scaling to thousands of containers.

In this presentation I will describe the Logging challenges for containerized applications and how this is being solved with Fluentd.

How Linux Keeps Mission Critical Application Up 24x7 - Linda Wang, Red Hat
"Zero Down Time! " That is what most of the operating systems claimed to provide; but do they really have what it takes to keep enterprise mission critical applications up and running 24x7 for years on end; without replacing broken hardware or avoid security fixes? To accomplish such objective, it will take more than just one or two features here and there, but a suite of enterprise ready services and capabilities to help accomplish such undertaking. This presentation will walk through various capabilities that Linux operating system provides to help keep an enterprise production system up and running.
