Keynote: Open Source: Show Me the Money? - Liz Rice, Vice President, Open Source Engineering, Aqua Security
There is a lot of debate about how to make a business based on open source software, but what if you're coming from the perspective of a company that already has commercially successful, proprietary offerings? How can you persuade your sales team, your commercial leaders, and your investors that it will be good for business to start giving source code away for free? Why should a company invest engineering resources in other people's open source projects, when there is plenty of work to be done on your own products? In this talk, Liz will share the approach that Aqua Security has taken to embrace open source and make it a fundamental pillar of its overall strategy. She will share practical steps and learnings that could help you unlock the open source potential for your own business.

Keynote: Microservices 2.0 and Data Economies - Sam Ramji, Chief Strategy Officer, DataStax
Microservices 1.0 was an organizational breakthrough that led to higher velocity and easier scaling for development teams. It caused negative side-effects of service dependencies and data sprawl, which damage SLO performance and make data features complex to build and maintain.  Microservices 2.0 uses a service mesh and a data mesh to retain the positive velocity and scaling attributes of microservices while constraining the negative side-effects.  These meshes enable creation of data economies, where there is a free and open market for microservices that shape the data.  Data scientists, developers, and product owners can find and share the microservices that work best for them, while all access common data.

Keynote: Patently Obvious - The Year the Lawyers Came to FOSS - Neil McGovern, Executive Director, The GNOME Foundation
In August 2019, GNOME was notified that it was being sued in the state of California over a broad patent that allegedly covered Shotwell, a photo management application. The plaintiff? A prolific filer of patent
suits, and a patent assertion entity. This was the first time that a FOSS project has been sued for patent infringement.

This talk is the story from the Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation, on how he responded and the strategies are taken to not only defeat the suit but to secure a ground-breaking agreement which means that this particular PAE will never be able to sue any FOSS project ever again.

Keynote: Operationalizing a Global, Circular IT Industry is Both Our Opportunity and Imperative - Ali Fenn, President, ITRenew
The global IT industry is responsible for 4% of global emissions and on track to double by 2025.  In the data center world, we are collectively doing a decent job driving advances in operational energy efficiency.  But this is only part of the puzzle, one-third of the puzzle in fact.  To truly assess and address the environmental impact of data center equipment, it is imperative to include both pre-use (embodied) and post-EOL costs of the massive scaling of our collective infrastructure.  In this session, we will explore the true total cost of equipment, and the opportunity represented by circular data centers to redefine lifetimes, and maximize both financial value and sustainability.  Operationalizing circular data centers means enabling a global, circular IT hardware industry, and to do so catalyzes both financial and environmental opportunity, and democratized access to growth.   We’ll talk about what this entails, the role of open hardware, what’s happening now, and what is at stake.

Keynote: The RISC-V Vector Processor in EPI - Jesús Labarta Mancho, Director, Computer Sciences Department, Barcelona Supercomputing Center
The European Processor Initiative (EPI) project aims at developing European processor technology for HPC and emerging application areas. Beyond leveraging Arm technology, an important objective of the project is to develop a fully owned implementation of a generic accelerator based on the RISC-V vector extension ISA.
The goal of this talk is to describe the fundamental vision behind the design of such an accelerator and its architectural features. I will report on the implementation status of the first version of the micro architecture. I will also present the software development vehicle (SDV) frameworks used to steer a holistic co-design approach including operating systems and overall system software developments to homogenize the heterogeneous combination of different cores in the overall platform.

Keynote: How can Open Source Help Solve Europe’s Strategic Challenges? - Sachiko Muto, Chief Executive Officer, OpenForum Europe
In a world of ubiquitous Open Source, unstable geopolitics and with an EU looking to regulate digital markets, there are new opportunities and risks for Open Source. The confluence of these trends means that the conversation around Open Source is moving beyond questions of cost-saving into being of strategic importance for Europe’s digital future. To achieve this, however, Open Source community stakeholders need to increase their capacity to engage with policymakers. There are tangible steps we can take to catalyse ‘Open’ to solve Europe’s strategic challenges without erecting walls and barriers.
