Open source is everywhere—from the bottom of the programming stack to the top. OSCON Austin 2017 brought the software engineering and developer community together to explore what's new and useful in open source languages, tools, and techniques. This video compilation provides you with a complete recording of the 10 keynotes, 36 tutorials, and 137 individual sessions delivered at the conference—more than 240 hours of material to explore at your own pace by downloading the video. Some of the highlights of OSCON Austin 2017 include:
- 10 inspirational keynotes, including Ying Xiong (Huawei) on the power of open source, Brian Behlendorf (Linux Foundation) on re-building societal trust with blockchain technology and open source; and Dianne Marsh on the Spinnaker open source project at Netflix.
- Infrastructure Boot Camp: 9 tutorials and 20 sessions that zoom you up to speed on Docker, Kubernetes, and open source frameworks, including the sold-out tutorial from Google on site reliability engineering; Kelsey Hightower's (Google) tutorial on Kubernetes basics; Brent Laster (SAS) on building a Jenkins 2.0 deployment pipeline; and Quinn Murphy (GitHub) on managing infrastructure using Terraform.
- TensorFlow Day: 7 hours of demonstrations and talks on the state of TensorFlow, open source tooling, and machine learning from the TensorFlow team at Google.
- Open Container Day: 8 hours on all things container, including Daniel Krook (IBM) on containers versus serverless frameworks; Merlin Glynn (VMware) on the headaches of running secure container workloads at scale; Mindy Preston (Docker) on leveraging the Moby project to assemble specialized container-based systems; Vincent Batts (Red Hat) on the evolution of various container runtimes and interoperability; and Arun Gupta (Amazon) providing an overview of service discovery in different container orchestration frameworks.
- InnerSource Day: 8 hours from the practitioners of InnerSource, the open source, community-inspired, transformational approach to software development within the enterprise. Includes why-they-are-using-it presentations by Georg Gruetter (Robert Bosch GmbH), Erin Bank (CA Technologies), Silona Bonewald (PayPal), Padma Sudarsan (Nokia), and Bijil Abraham Philip (Amazon).
- 36 deep-dive tutorials (3.5 hrs. each), including Ashley McNamara (Rackspace) on building amazing cross-platform apps with CLI tools and Go; Marc Sugiyama (Erlang Solutions) on creating rapid scalable websites with Elixir and Phoenix; Jim Blandy (Mozilla) on implementing networked games using Rust and Tokio; William Lyon (Neo Technology) on building recommendation engines using Neo4j and Python; Karen Sandler (Software Freedom Conservancy) offering a practical guide to GPL compliance; and Matt Lucas (IBM) on blockchains and the Hyperledger fabric.
- 137 individual sessions on cutting edge open source solutions, architecture, performance, security, and more, including a talk by Monty Widenius—one of the original developers of MySQL—on open source monetization options; a debate between Robert Lefkowitz (Warby Parker) and Simon Wardley (Leading Edge Forum) on whether mapping or architecture is the best method for guiding strategic planning; a talk by Gelareh Taban (IBM) on the advantages of using Swift when building end-to-end application because of its security advantages; and a presentation by Neal Ford (ThoughtWorks) on how to build evolutionary architectures—architectures that can change gracefully over time.
