Eclipse Unconference Europe 2016

Revision as of 17:48, 11 August 2016 by Anne.jacko.eclipse-foundation.org (Talk | contribs) (Unconference Organizers)

Eclipse Unconference

This page is the live agenda for the Eclipse Unconference in Ludwigsburg on October 24, 2016 at the Forum.

The Unconference is more and more successful so please get in touch with us (gael.blondelle _ at _ eclipse.org and susan.iwai _ at _ eclipse.org) if you need some space for your group.

Registration and logistics

Unlike the regular conference, this Unconference is organized by YOU. There will be food and beverages, power and projectors, and meeting rooms. We will coordinate just a bit to avoid obvious topic overlaps during the day and to make sure that everybody has the right place for their group.

Ther will be some spaces dedicated to a Dev co-working space, that is, spaces where developers meet and work together on their preferred projects. Both experienced and new contributors will find that the co-working space is a good chance to meet and learn from each other.

Registration: If you plan to participate, you have to register for the Unconference on the conference registration page.

Open Source Component Management

As pointed out in the project proposal, software is not built from scratch, but rather assembled from various prepackaged third-party software components. As a result, organizations face the following challenges:

  • Verifying various aspects of compliance when using third-party software components: license compliance, ECC checks, IP assessments, etc.
  • Sharing knowledge about software components and their qualities.
  • Providing a broad overview of the components used.

The Eclipse IP team is not the only to face these challenges, and the Eclipse community is now tackling the topic with projects like SW360.

Meet the SW360 project leaders and other experts for fruitful excahgnes about this topic.

  • Session coordinators: Johannes Kristan from Bosch SI and Michael Jaeger from Siemens
