Your Open Source Story Matters
10:30 AM - 10:45 AM
LEVEL: Beginner

Your unique experience in open source matters. Why? collaborates with people from all over the world to tell stories about the FOSS they use, create, contribute to, and care about. And since it's inception in 2010, has seen readership grow to 500,000+ page views a month, with new contributors every week. The one guideline? Stick to the project. No marketing. No pitches. Just real, open source talk.

Open Source High Performance Computing: Not Your Grandma's Supercomputer
10:45 AM - 11:00 AM
LEVEL: Beginner

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is one of the world’s premiere High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities. Supercomputers have traditionally been very complex, purpose-built systems delivered to customers as proprietary “black boxes.” In the early 2000’s, LLNL set out to demonstrate that cost-effective supercomputers could be built using commodity server hardware and Open Source Software. We will describe our model, which has broadly impacted the HPC community and ecosystem.

Adopting Open Source Continuous Integration Software at a Supercomputing Facility
11:00 AM - 11:15 AM
LEVEL: Beginner

The build, test, and deploy phases of iterative software development life cycle require a deep understanding of the process and best practices to transform code into evolutionary software.

What does it take to deploy mission-critical software consistently amidst agile methodology and rapid releases? Can continuous integration software automate best practices to handle frequently changing codebase? In this talk the author will discuss adopting Jenkins CI at a supercomputing facility.

Secure Native Code on the Web
11:15 AM - 11:30 AM
LEVEL: Beginner

Native client is an open source project that allows sandboxed execution of native machine code in the browser. A range of high performance Free and Open Source Software designed for the desktop have been ported to run under Native Client. This presentation introduces the Native Client technology, explores the key challenges of porting applications to run securely in the browser and provides information on how to become a contributor.
