Let's Celebrate The Spirit of FOSS Again With Open Source India 2012

BENGALURU, October 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The 9th Edition of Open Source India (OSI), Asia's Leading Open Source Convention, Will be Held in Bengaluru From October 12-14, 2012

For all the open source buffs, this is sure to send your spirits soaring. The 9th edition of Open Source India, Asia's leading Open Source Convention, will be held at NIMHANS Convention Center, Bengaluru, from October 12-14, 2012. The open source conference is aimed at fostering and giving a fillip to the Open Source ecosystem in the subcontinent.

Started as Linux Asia in 2004, OSI has been at the helm of bringing together the Open Source industry and the community in the last 8 years. This year it aims to take this event a notch higher by focusing on the Open Source ecosystem in Asia, and more specifically, in India.

Sharing his insight on OSI 2012, Ramesh Chopra, Vice Chairman, EFY Enterprises Pvt. Ltd., said, "OSI 2012 is likely to be much bigger and better as compared to the previous editions. We want it to offer something for everyone, including software developers, IT managers and heads, CXOs, policy makers, system administrators, project managers, delivery experts, academia, government and the open source community."

OSI 2012 will comprise various events, which will run in parallel on all three days of the show. The aim is to focus on different user segments of the open source arena and ensure that there is something for everyone.

The last edition of the show received overwhelming response from both industry and the community. OSI 2012 will be no less! Android will be one of the biggest attractions at OSI this year. Android is the newest and the most happening name in the open source world. Google's open source operating system is gaining new heights not only the global market but is also catching big in the Indian market. While the speakers will touch upon topics like 'Building Next Generation Applications for Android on Intel Architecture', 'Android Platform customization', 'Ruboto - Ruby on Android' and 'Mobile Application Testing', experts will also provide workshop on 'App Development for Android'.

A special track on Kernel called 'Kernel Days' will be another attraction point for the developers. Topics like 'Debugging a Linux kernel & Application using Lauterbach' will be covered by experts in this track. You will also get a fairly good knowledge in IT Infrastructure, Web Apps and Cloud. In fact, open source in cloud will form a major part of discussion at OSI. Talks on 'OpenStack Cloud Services', 'Future of cloud', and 'How to choose the best cloud solution' will be helpful for the CXOs to decide on the kind of technology they should opt for depending upon their needs.

OSI 2012 holds a lot for academia/students as well. Special tracks will be organised for this segment to tell them the importance of certifications and importance of open source in educational sector. For more information, visit http://www.osidays.com.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams – then teams of teams – have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization. In his session at DevOps Summit, Anders Wallgren, Chief Technology Officer of Electric Cloud, will discuss how DevOps and Continuous Delivery have emerged to help connect dev...

Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Gilpin, CTO and Co-Founder of Conjur, will discuss various security considerations for container-based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows.
It is one thing to build single industrial IoT applications, but what will it take to build the Smart Cities and truly society-changing applications of the future? The technology won’t be the problem, it will be the number of parties that need to work together and be aligned in their motivation to succeed. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jason Mondanaro, Director, Product Management at Metanga, discussed how you can plan to cooperate, partner, and form lasting all-star teams to change the world...
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
