SPDX Bakeoff
In this working session we will do a deeper dive on the various tools (both open source and commercial) for producing and consuming SPDX 2.1.  Bring your tools, bring your ideas for tools, and be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty with SPDX fields.

In order to facilitate discussion and collaboration we encourage SPDX producers to generate SPDX 2.1 data files (tag:value format) for a selection of open source projects prior to the meeting.  There will be a standard set of packages to be analyzed, which will be documented in the SPDX 2.1 bakeoff folder on Google Docs.   Before the session you may upload your data files to the  folder on Google Docs.  Just create a folder with the name of your organization and deposit whatever files you have.  We will have several projectors in order to facilitate side-by-side comparisons of SPDX data during the meeting.

We hope to accomplish the following in this session:
  • Discuss and resolve different interpretations of the SPDX specification and data fields.
  • Identify and discuss bugs or gaps in the specification and ideas on how to address those in future versions of the specification.
  • Demo or discuss additional tools, resources, or best practices beyond the specification that will be required in order to promote adoption of SPDX.
This session will be of primary interest to SPDX tool developers, users of those tools (corporations and open source developers/projects), SPDX specification developers and other members of the SPDX working groups.

Full-Day Course: FOSSology - Hands On Training (Additional Fee - Pre-registration Required)

To add this to your existing LinuxCon + ContainerCon Europe registration, please click here.

FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit. As a toolkit, you can run license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a database and Web user interface provide you with a compliance workflow. License, copyright and export scanners are tools used in the workflow.

Analyzing open source license compliance requires expert knowledge. As a consequence the use of the tool requires understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. This training will therefore provide the following elements:

  • Challenges in real world examples at license analysis of open source components
  • Learning how to cope with license proliferation and custom license texts
  • Efficiently managing large open source components with heterogeneous licensing
  • Saving work with reusing license conclusions of open source packages when analyzing a newer version
  • Getting an overview about an example workflow for component analysis with FOSSology

The course allows and encourages to perform the presented functionality in a hands on manner. Attendees use their computers to directly perform presented tasks on their own FOSSology application. As an open source project, anyone can easily install FOSSology using a pre-built docker image from docker hub or vagrant / virtualbox on most platforms.

This course will be valuable to anyone concerned with and involved in Open Source Management, including operational and legal executives, software development managers, open source program managers and developers. It requires basic understanding of software licensing. If not, it is recommended to have performed the training Compliance Training for Developers (LFC191) available here.

About the Instructors:
The FOSSology Steering Team will administer the course.

3:00 pm - PM Break and Hangout with Speakers

These are exciting times in the Software Defined Storage space, especially with the rapid innovation in the cloud native space. Open Source projects abound and are working collaboratively to bring community-driven innovation to all areas of technology infrastructure and also provide seamless integration to the cloud. Spend a day with us to understand Software as a Service as it pertains to cloud native technologies and the open source projects that contribute in this space, from REX-Ray and CoprHD to Kubernetes and Mesos, to Spark and data streaming, and to Ceph, GlusterFS and OpenStack Swift. These stacks quickly emerging in this world, and this summit is an opportunity to look at the latest developments.

Some of the topics we'll be covering include software defined storage controllers and API platforms, data persistence for cloud native applications, persistent storage with Docker, storage management with OpenStack, open source storage platforms, and the new heterogeneous open source software stack for storage. 

Come and learn how to build open source storage platforms for cloud native and container infrastructure!
