How to Inspire, Motivate and Form the Future Generation of Girls in STEAM: The Experience of Girls in Technology (Chicas en Tecnología) in Argentina - Mariana Varela, Chicas en Tecnologia
Since 2015, the non-profit organization, Chicas en Tecnología, has been developing a range of programs to bridge the technological gender gap in Argentina, by encouraging, fostering and increasing the knowledge and enthusiasm of young women in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) areas.

The NGO has been focusing on social perceptions, employment and entrepreneurship constraints, and cultural stereotypes within the technological field that keeps some women away from selecting it as their next course of studies or career path.

The speaker, co-founder of the organization, will share some advice and ideas taken from their experience on how to create the pipeline that will bring gender parity, understanding the challenges and possible solutions by all the parties (institutions, companies, and organizations) involved and by the society itself.

Don't Judge Candidates by their Github Profiles: How Open Source Participation Plays into Hiring - Duane O'Brien, Indeed
You have heard that having a GitHub profile can help when job hunting. Is it true? How can you get started? What if you don’t have the time?

You are hiring to fill a position, and you have two great candidates. One has a robust history of working in open source, and the other has no history at all. Is this an easy choice?

This session will look at the implications of working in open source, from the perspectives of both the candidate and the hiring manager. Individuals will come away with an understanding of how open source participation affects their hireability, how they can get started, and what to do when active participation is challenging. Hiring managers will come away with an understanding of how to evaluate the open source work of potential candidates, how to evaluate candidates with no history, and how requiring an open source footprint creates harmful bias.

Is There a Future for Open Source? - Michael Meskes, credativ
Open Source has accomplished unparalleled success, but with success comes
challenges and risks. While some of these are inevitable, others are self made
and threaten to destroy the whole ecosystem. With these threats coming from
both sides, community and business, it is time to admit they exist and start
working on remedying them.

This presentation is about the new threads the Open Source movement is facing, it examines where they come from and gives food for thought about solutions.

Ansible: Why Simplicity Matters - Robyn Bergeron, Red Hat

Developed by a community of more than 3,500 contributors, Ansible is an open source, radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy and manage.  In this session, we'll provide an overview of Ansible and discuss many of its use cases, including examples from the traditional to the unorthodox, as well as overviews of both AWX and the universe of shared content in Ansible Galaxy. Finally, we’ll discuss how the simplicity of Ansible’s design and usage, and the architectural decisions made with the goal of simplicity at the beginning stages of the project’s evolution, have enabled the project to become one of the most active open source communities in the world.

Real Time Virtualization Exploration - Tiejun Chen, VMware
Virtualization technologies has already been deployed in the embedded systems but in many use scenarios, applications/services should be responded in real time. Some typical hypervisors are constructed to be a real time hypervisor but this solution still cannot meet hard time requirement, even real time guest OS is adopted. Because hypervisors have no knowledge of tasks inside VM actually. So based on this two levels of shcedule domain, I'd like to discuss-to review #1. What are those challenges, #2. Benefits with Real Time virtualization; #3. Several potential but different approaches to construct real time virtualization solution:1:paravirtualize guest OS like Linux to sync scheduling between GOS and hypervisor ;2:AMP hypervisor;3:single-process purpose OS; 4 EPT-only protected application/service; 5.some possible combinations, #4. Any potential but valuable use cases.

libgit2: The Git Library You Don’t Know You’re Using - Edward Thomson, Microsoft
libgit2 is useful for developing custom applications that make use of Git data, and it’s useful for things like custom validation of code, inspecting data in repositories and code analytics.

This session will introduce the libgit2 library, and will discuss:

* Advantages and disadvantages of using libgit2 versus scripting the git GUI.
* Examples of code to work with Git repositories
* An introduction to managed code interfaces to libgit2, including LibGit2Sharp and Rugged, for people who prefer to want to add Git I support to their C# or Ruby applications.

Civil Infrastructure Platform: 2 Years Experience of Industrial-grade Open Source Base Layer Development and its Future - Yoshitake Kobayashi, Toshiba Corporation
The Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) is creating a super long-term supported (SLTS) open source "base layer" (OSBL) of industrial grade software that will enable the implementation of building blocks in civil infrastructure projects. Currently, all of these systems are built from scratch, with little re-use of existing software building blocks, which drains resources, money and time. Since CIP launched in April 2016, we focused to create industrial-grade OSBL which consists of SLTS kernel and reference base-system by collaboration. In this talk, we share the least status and roadmap of CIP development and collaboration efforts with other OSS project such as Debian. All source code and document can be found from CIP web site (https://cip-project.org/).

Kids on Computers: Empowering Underprivileged Communities around the World with Open Source Technology - Gustavo A. R. Silva, The Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative
Kids on Computers (https://www.kidsoncomputers.org/) is a non-profit organization dedicated to setting up computer labs in low-income schools around the world, using both donated and new hardware. The computers are equipped with free and Open Source software and educational content that is accessible without internet access. Although the computers can be used to teach software development, the primary purpose of the computer labs is to support learning of traditional academic subjects. Recently, Kids on Computers has started to set up Raspberry Pi-based labs.

This is a story about how people around the world benefit from the work of a small group of volunteers that brings free Open Source technology to remote areas and, what it takes to identify, visit, and continuously train those communities. The logistics of preparing and setting up a fully functional Open Source lab with Internet in a Box included will also be explained.
