LF Energy Summit

LF Energy, a new initiative of The Linux Foundation, provides a neutral, collaborative environment for open source innovation to enable the “electrification of everything to scale” and thus transform the world’s relationship to energy.

Climate change demands that we accelerate the transition to distributed and variable energy resources. This requires a new power systems paradigm with modern communication infrastructure to safely connect the proliferation of devices and sensors. Open source (and you!) are needed to scale effectively and exponentially. The day will unite power system engineers with open source developers to identify the best path to building a vibrant ecosystem of TSO, vendor and energy leaders to enable this global effort.

See more details about LF Energy Summit here.

Date: Wednesday, October 24, 8:30 AM – 6:15 PM
Location: Edinburgh 2, Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, Edinburgh
Add-On LF Energy Summit to your OSSEU Registration: $200

FOSSology – Hands on Training

FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit. As a toolkit, you can run automated license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a Web interface provides you with a compliance workflow. License, copyright and export control scanners are tools used in the workflow. Analyzing open source license compliance requires expert knowledge. Consequently, the use of the tool requires an understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. This hands-on training session will provide this understanding.

The following elements are covered:

  • Challenges in real-world examples at license analysis
  • 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
  • How FOSSology works with the SPDX standard
  • New features in the past year of FOSSology

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. Participants are encouraged to directly work on the given FOSSology software, in the best case on their own notebook computers for using FOSSology after the session as well. Assistance for installation will be provided.

Date: Thursday, October 25
Location: Melville, Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa Edinburgh
Registration Cost: $100 USD

Zephyr Hackathon – “Get Connected” Currently Full, Waitlist Only

We’ll be holding a challenge to “connect up” the badges running Zephyr that Phytec is providing to all hackathon attendees.

If you’ve never worked with Zephyr before,  we’ll hold an orientation session at the start of the day. You can learn the tips and tricks of setting up a development environment and working with Zephyr from our experts. Then we’ll turn you loose to work on the Hackathon’s challenge (see more details here).

If you’re just starting with embedded programming, you can help out the Zephyr project by helping fix some of the “Good First Issue” bugs.

Prizes will be awarded to the person who comes up with the best solution to the challenge, as well as to the developer who resolves the most bugs.

Phytec will be providing Zephyr Badges… (board details coming soon!)   Space (and boards) are limited, so sign up soon.

Date: Thursday, October 25
Time: 9:00 – 17:00
