Crossing the AI Chasm - Simon Chan, Salesforce
Building an end-to-end A.I. application and deploying it in production environments is tremendously more complicated than simply doing algorithm modeling in a lab. Many companies, despite having invested heavily in A.I. research, face the challenge of bringing seemingly impressive research results into reality. Inspired by the well-known ÛÏCrossing the ChasmÛ theory in the startup community, Simon will systematically analyze this particular problem of bridging the gap between multiple steps to bring A.I. into real applications.



With years of experience in building an open-source AI dev platform, Simon will walk through how the team and the community navigated the end-to-end machine learning application development journey.

How to Manage a Nearly One Million SLOCs Project - Emmanuel Lecharny, Symas
Working on an open source project is certainly not easy, especially when it starts to be big. Past the excitement of the beginning, how do we make it going on in the long run ?

What about a project that grows bigger and bigger, up to a point we are facing hundred of thousands of single lines of code ? What about testing it across multiple platforms ? What about the toollings that are needed - debugging, data migration, etc - ? What about the documentation ?

This talk is about the few simple rules that make it easier, and successful. It also exposes a few traps that are not so easy to avoid, and how to keep people involved in the long run.

More critical, it will explain how to conduct the project so that it's still relevant after 10 years, in a moving industry.

Next Generation Directory-Based User Management for Cloud Infrastructure - Shawn McKinney, Symas Corporation & Katarína Valaliková, Evolveum
(also in big data)

The IETF standard RFC2307 has long been a best-practice for storing security policies of unix machines across tcp/ip networks. It has a common data format so that a uniform security policy can be applied across every node in the network. The problem is keeping the security policy current. There needs to be a mediator to automatically keep events in sync. Access must be granted when new machines pop up without delay, and most importantly, removed, when no longer needed. At the same time rigid policies must be maintained about who can access a machine when, and for what purpose, or for that matter, who can grant that access, and under what conditions. Everything must also be backed up by a centralized audit trail. Here weÛªll present an approach for doing this using some open source software. There is a demo based on a hypothetical case study.

Inner Sourcing Transcends Tech: Applying Open Source Principles in Marketing and Communications - Joanna Madej, 30MHz
As increasingly every company becomes a software company, the software development "way of doing things" begins bleeding into other departments and disciplines within business. Particularly in organizations where software is the product, many of the principles behind open source as a development methodology can apply to managing and expanding interdisciplinary projects in marketing and communications. In these companies, open source development practices can set a tone for the culture of the organization as a whole,creating a shifting from an open source *software* company, to an open source company more generally . *This talk was inspired by and is a response to Jim Jagielski's talk on innersourcing at ApacheCon Vancouver.

A 2.0 is Not Going to Kill You But It Will Try - Jan Lehnardt, Neighbourhoodie Software
This talks looks alt the five-year development of Apache CouchDB 2.0 and looks at the major challenges of shipping a major version.



In a classic five act setup, this talk will explore the lessons learned the hard way from shipping CouchDB 2.0:



1. Community struggle: the inventor abandons the project. A toxic person is ejected from the community.



2. Trademark disputes: the ASF level playing field for corporations is defended by fierce battles.



3. Feature Deprecation: how to convince a part of your community that it is better to let go than to hold on to a specific feature set.



4. The trade-offs of shipping: release less now, release more later.



5. Inclusivity and diversity: losing people over culture burn-out .

Lightning Talks: Speakers To Be Announced - Moderated by Shane Curcuru & Lars Eilebrecht, Apache Software Foundation
Join us for the Lightning Talks where every attendee is welcome to participate.

This lively session has become a fun and expected ApacheCon tradition! As a community, taking time to laugh together is as important as taking time to code together. The Lightning Talks are spontaneous and each year has its own unique highlights.

Shane Curcuru and Lars Eilebrecht will be moderating the Lightning Talks at ApacheCon Europe 2016 Wednesday evening.

*What is a Lightning Talk?*
A Lightning Talk is a short presentation/talk of up to 5 minutes. There will be a timer which counts down from 5 minutes to zero - no longer!

*Who can do a Lightning Talk?*
Any attendee of ApacheCon! You don't need to be a speaker to do a Lightning Talk. Don't be shy, it's your chance for 5 minutes of fame at ApacheCon.

*What are the topics of a Lightning Talk?*
A Lightning Talk can be about anything. Yes, really anything! You get bonus points if it's about an ASF project, the Apache Software Foundation in general, Open Source, and even more bonus points if the talk is funny. However, sales and marketing pitches are not very popular at ApacheCon , and you may get kicked off the stage if you do one!

*How do I submit a Lightning Talk?*
To submit a talk, just write down your name and the title of your talk on a piece of paper and hand it to one of the Lightning Talk moderators at the beginning of the session.  If you already know your topic, email Shane or Lars now - increase your chances for a spot!

*How do I know when it's my turn to do the talk?*
Lars and Shane and will chose the talks randomly during the Lightning Talks session. Once they mention your name, just get up on the stage and do your talk. The clock starts ticking as soon as you are on the stage.

*Can I use slides?*
No, absolutely no slides allowed, unless your name is Rich Bowen. Disguises are possible, but in that case, bring a single malt too.

*What are some past Lightning Talks?*
Feathercast features some popular Lighting Talks from earlier:  http://feathercast.apache.org/tag/lightning-talk/

The Apache Way - Practice - Nick Burch, Apache Software Foundation
The "Apache Way" is the process by which Apache Software Foundation projects are managed. It has evolved over many years and has produced over 100 highly successful open source projects. It generally works well! But not always..



In this session, we'll follow on from the theory, and look more on the practice of how it works. We'll look more at cases when it has worked well! And when it has had problems. We'll see more of the boundaries, the things that can be changed, and those that are fixed firm rules. We'll see how businesses can get involved, and where project independence means they need to step back. Licensing, Trademarks, Decisions, Marketing, Infrastructure and more.



If you want to take your knowledge of the Apache Way to the next level, or learn more on how to help your new project stay within it, this is the session for you!

Shane is here to help explain trademark law in practical, everyday terms for FOSS projects and the companies that contribute to them. I can clear up many misconceptions, and give you the practical and actionable advice you need to help your company or community protect and improve your good name and reputation.

ERP applications need more and more modularity, which is one of the major priorities of the Apache OFBiz community. This presentation will explain why user interface modularity and its associated unit testing methods can help create full process flow integration testing that helps enable and maintain application quality.



A key success factor to delivering good automated tests is the need to have various people (e.g. Business Analysts, Developers, Product Owners) all working and collaborating together. This ensures that the application, its tests and also the automated test deployment is as efficient as possible.



We will demonstrate, how Selenium-Webdriver UI testing is being used with Apache OFBiz on a current project, and how it helps to automatically provide enough documentation to help Business analyst and to create beginner's tutorial for the application.

Introducing OFBiz Plugin Manager for Building an Eco-System - Taher Alkhateeb, Pythys Software
Apache OFBiz is going through revolutionary transformations and recently Gradle was implemented as the new build system. This critical change has opened the door to lots of exciting possibilities and one of these is the ability to introduce a plugin system.



This plugin system could fundamentally change how OFBiz is used and would:

- Allow third party vendors to easily extend the system with new functionality

- Give users more control and choice over their OFBiz implementation

- Unify the method in which OFBiz is extended



The main differentiator is that this plugin management system is actually integrated within OFBiz itself and a key objective is to get the community, developers and third party vendors motivated to start building a plugin eco system around OFBiz.

Versioning and Releasing an Application Composed of REST Microservices - Myrle Krantz, Mifos Initiative
Backwards compatibility in a distributed, scalable environment has two major components: interface compatibility, and persistence compatibility. Components in this environment can be integrated in two manners: statically and dynamically. Changes to any given component can be backwards compatible, or backwards incompatible. But in all these cases, your customer wants to be able to achieve 100% uptime. These variables, and the distributed nature of open-source development present interesting problems for a projectÛªs release cycle.

Building an Extensible, Resumable DSL on Top of Apache Groovy - Jesse Glick, CloudBees
In 2014, a few Jenkins hackers set out to implement a new way of defining continuous delivery pipelines in Jenkins. Dissatisfied with chaining jobs together, configured in the web UI, the effort started with Apache Groovy as the foundation and grew from there. Today the result of that effort, named Jenkins Pipeline, supports a rich DSL with "steps" provided by a Jenkins plugins, built-in auto-generated documentation, and execution resumability which allow Pipelines to continue executing while the master is offline.



In this talk we'll take a peek behind the scenes of Jenkins Pipeline.

Apache OFBiz contains a few different technologies that can be used to help make extracting data from the system easier and simpler. Screen Widgets, Apache Freemarker, BIRT, data files and Apache Groovy are all tools that can be used to help extract the data from OFBiz in the format you want.



In this presentation we go through some different usecases for data extraction and their recommended implementations in Apache OFBiz, following user requirements (volume, complexity, usage etc).



Finally there will also be a demonstration of how to use the existing utilities and tools within OFBiz to enable general data extraction. During the presentation it is hoped that we can start a discussion about potential future ideas and requirements around data extraction that could be introduced as new OFBiz features.

Lean Microservices on OSGi - Christian Schneider, Talend
Microservices and their frameworks like spring boot allow to start fast but can easily produce ugly monoliths or tangled webs of fine grained dependencies. OSGi on the other hand provides great modularity but is regarded as more complex than spring boot and alike. This Talk shows how to create lean and modular microservices using OSGi, maven, bndtools and Apache Karaf. The build result is a runnable jar or docker image and nicely fits microservice deployments. See how OSGi allows the flexibility to deploy each microservice on its own and let them communicate over (REST) remote calls or deploy them together and talk using OSGi services locally using the same business code bundles.

A GUI for Invoking Web Services: Benefits and How to Build it on Top of Apache CXF - Alessio Soldano, Red Hat
Invoking and testing a Web Service endpoint in Java is generally quite a laborious task. Most of the tools aimed at simplifying the process still require developer knowledge like XML / SOAP. In this presentation I will introduce JBoss Wise, which is an open source utility internally relying on Apache CXF JAX-WS tooling and meant to simplify WS invocation/testing. In particular, I'll show how its web GUI has been created and demontrate how it can be used to effectively test a WS endpoint without writing a single line of code or XML. This basically shifts the focus from the technology to the data, allowing for fast/agile WS testing and enabling business acceptance tests directly from analysts.

Screen Rendering in Apache OFBiz : Different Ways to Make it Future-Proof - Nicolas Malin & Julien Nicolas, Nereide
Apache-OFBiz is a suite of enterprise applications built on a common architecture using common data, logic and process components. This means it can be used as an ERP, CRM, E-Business/E-Commerce, SCM, MRP, MMS/EAM, POS or just as a framework to build applications.

Apache OFBiz includes two main tools to build application screens. These tools have been designed to render different kinds of screens and each have their own pros and cons. So when could it be better to use a faster and easier tool over a more complex but flexible one?

In this presentation, we will describe the technology around each of these tools, look at the most common screen types used and see how it is possible to combine them to create a UI standard.

CONTAINERS IN ACTION - Transform Application Delivery with DevOps - Daniel Oh, Red Hat
Due to deployment, configuration and integration inconsistency between applications, delivering an application into production is a non-trivial task with lots of friction and many back-and-forth cycles between Developers and IT Operations. Painful deployments leads to not only poor quality of the delivered service but also to a tendency to avoid the pain by deploying to production as seldom as possible. This in turn, results in larger deployments with more features being delivered at once and higher risk of things going wrong, which results in more pain, fewer deployments, Û_ and story goes on.

DevOps with Containers provide consistent environment and tools for both Developers and Operations to package, delivery and manage the applications and so on.

Software Quality? It's a Cultural Thing - Bertrand Delacretaz, Adobe
Asking developers about their views on software quality generates a combinatorial explosion of axes on which quality can be measured. Is it clean code? Performance? Testability? Modularity? Transparency? Software quality is an endless quest.

Some teams are known to be helpless when it comes to producing good software, while others, particularly in open organizations that bring different people together, consistently produce software of an extremely high quality. Is it a cultural thing, and if it is, how can we influence our teams quality culture?

Reflecting on the axes on which one can measure quality, and how they translate into software design and implementation, will help us ask the right questions when reviewing our software and when discussing software quality with our teams.

We won't have all answers, mostly questions, but those will help!

Simply 'loading' mod_ssl is not sufficient in the rapidly evolving encryption space. Smart organizations have had to adapt to changing security requirements, including accepted cipher suites, ECDHE keys and stronger RSA keys to pick up today's best practices. They have shifted from SSL session caches to session tickets to further attain perfect forward secrecy, are rolling out OCSP stapling services, have dropped SSLv3 Protocol and are adopting TLS virtual hosting to consolidate their deployments.

Implementing Security in Apache Geode Using Apache Shiro - Jinmei Liao, Pivotal
Apache Geode (incubating) is a distributed in-memory data grid built for high throughput low latency applications. Data stored in a Gode cluster can be accessed by Geode clients (which talk to the server over TCP) and over REST api. One can also manage the Geode cluster over JMX and rest api.

Although you could secure the transport using ssl, role based access control existed only for clients over TCP. In the latest release of Apache Geode, we now have role based access control for all Geode APIs, and we used Apache Shiro for our implementation. In this talk we will provide details on how this was accomplished and present our ÛÏlessons learnedÛ.

I Will Not Attend Your Meeting, I'm an Open Source Person - Bertrand Delacretaz, Adobe
Meetings are very costly for people who work on a Maker's Schedule (as defined by Paul Graham, https://s.apache.org/ms), like software developers. Yet in many corporate environments meetings are the default way of addressing issues.

Due to their asynchronous and distributed modes of of operation, Open Source projects have over the years designed and refined an efficient way of collaborating without requiring face-to-face meetings.

Can we transpose this to corporate environments, to reduce the cost and aggravation of boring and unproductive meetings?

We think the answer is yes, if we can reproduce the constant flow of information and asynchronous decision making mechanisms of Open Source. This talk will show you how to implement these changes, based on Bertrand's successful experience in corporate environments.

With major apologies to David Patterson for stealing the title of his last lecture https://s.apache.org/how_to_be_a_bad_professor (I guess he taught us well after all!) I would like to present this talk that focuses on Apache Incubator, its podlings and mentors. This presentation will start with an overview of common mistakes that I have observed while mentoring on my own and seeing others do the same. We will proceed to talking about misconceptions on both sides that make Apache Incubator policies appear daunting and bureaucratic. We will conclude by a 10 steps program aimed at helping podling master the Apache Way and graduate as quickly as possible. Finally, a few battle stories will be shared and wounds put on display. This former VP of Incubator has a few to show.

Lucene And Solr Document Classification - Alessandro Benedetti, loveholidays.com
This presentation will start by introducing how Apache Lucene can be used to classify documents using data structures that already exist in your index instead of having to generate and supply external training sets.

Building on the introduction the focus will be on extensions of the Lucene Classification module that come in Lucene 6.0 and the Lucene Classification module's incorporation in to Solr 6.1. These extensions will allow you to classify at a document level with individual field weighting, numeric field support, lat/lon fields etc.

The Solr ClassificationUpdateProcessor will be explored, such as how it works, and how to use it including basic and advanced features like multi class support and classification context filtering.

The presentation will include practical examples and real world use cases.

Apache Tika - What's New with 2.0? - Nick Burch, Apache Software Foundation
Apache Tika detects and extracts metadata and text from a huge range of file formats and types. From Search to Big Data, single file to internet scale, if you've got files, Tika can help you get out useful information!



Apache Tika has been around for nearly 10 years now, and with the passage of all that time, plus the new 2.0 release, a lot has changed. Not only has there been a huge increase in the number of supported formats, but the ways of using Tika have expanded, and some of the philosophies on the best way to handle things have altered with experience. Tika has gained support for a wide range of programming languages to, and more recently, Big-Data scale support.



Whether you're an old-hand with Tika looking to know what's hot or different with 2.0, or someone new looking to learn more about the power of Tika, this talk will have something in it for you!

Object Lessons: Deserialization After Apache Commons Collections - Tim Jarrett, Veracode
ItÛªs the biggest vulnerability of 2015 that didnÛªt get a brand name. The deserialization vulnerability in the Apache Commons Collections library also impacted the build server that powers most software developers and a half dozen other key pieces of the shared Java software infrastructure. But Java deserialization vulnerabilities are more widespread than you might guess.



This presentation reviews data from over 200,000 application security scans to help defenders better understand the risk of Java deserialization vulnerabilities. We look at vulnerability prevalence both overall and by industry vertical and the probability that your application has a similar vulnerability (hint: higher than youÛªd think). WeÛªll also look at real world guidance for setting security policies and coordinating with developers to get issues fixed across large numbers of applications.

JSSE is known to have poor performances compared with OpenSSL additionally ALPN required by HTTP/2 won't be in the JVM before java9. The goal of the new connector is to get ride of the old APR connector and use the NIO or NIO2 one and still have the performances of OpenSSL. Additionally the tc-native can be used in other java web server for example undertow, the presentation will explain how and demo it quickly. The presentation will explain the new code and the corresponding configuration and show the performance improvements: With the new piece of code Tomcat with the NIO or NIO2 connector gives even a better throughput than with the old APR connector!

Why Apache CloudStack - Gabriel Beims Bräscher, Autonomiccs
Apache CloudStack is one of the most competitive and affordable alternatives to create and manage a cloud computing environment. Although CloudStack has proven to be a solid choice when compared to its competitors, it holds but a small fraction of the cloud computing orchestration market share. The reasons why Apache CloudStack is sometimes forgotten will be highlighted and discussed in this presentation, alongside the strong points of picking Apache CloudStack as your cloud computing orchestration tool.

Will that model help save your fledgling project, or is that just a set of boring rules? Describing the reasoning behind the model's items, with concrete examples from successful Apache projects, will help us find out and apply the model to our own projects in a helpful way.

Structuring Medical Records with Apache Stanbol - Rafa Haro, Athento & Antonio David Perez Morales, Ixxus
Apache Stanbol (https://stanbol.apache.org) is a top level Apache project which main objective is to provide a set of reusable components for semantic content management. Built from a extremely modular point of view, Stanbol is an OSGi based framework that uses a number of Apache tools like Solr, Felix, OpenNLP, Clerezza, Tika, Sling and Jena.



The intention of this talk is double. On one hand, we will offer a detailed overview of the current situation of the project, from the technical and community point of view. On the other hand, we will showcase a real use case where Stanbol is being used for structuring text medical records in several languages. Through this real use case explanation, we will be exposing how Stanbol can be used for things like: processing multi-language text, use semantic datasets for Content Enhancement and NLP tasks like Fact Extraction and Negation Detection

Introduction of a Web API Execution Environment Based on a Server-less Architecture Using Apache Camel - Tsunayoshi Egawa, Yahoo Japan
The presentation will be an introduction of a Web API execution environment based on a server-less architecture using Apache Camel.

Although Yahoo! JAPAN has a lot of Web APIs, instead of focusing on service development, the engineers had to spend considerable man-hours in the disclosure and maintenance (setting up of servers, vulnerability response, etc.).

To solve this issue, a system was created that specializes in the Web API execution environment (UTOPIA).

Web API development in UTOPIA can be done by XML DSL and through a simple setting of information.

UTOPIA uses Apache Camel as a routine engine to develop the business logic.

Although the system is a closed internal system, this presentation will show what Yahoo! JAPAN has learnt from running the system, issues found in production use, and comparison between existing similar systems and mechanism such as OSGi and PaaS.

OSGi for Outsiders - Milen Dyankov, Liferay
OSGi has evolved and matured beyond recognition over the last few years. It's now easier than ever before, to build dynamic, modular Java applications to address the challenges imposed by ever growing and constantly changing business requirements. Despite that, OSGi seems to be far from receiving the appreciation it deserves.



In this talk I'd like to go over what OSGi community is (not) doing to attract "outsiders". I'd argue it can do better. Based on observations and conversation from the last 2 years trying to advocate for OSGi among Java developers, I'll try to position OSGi it in today's reality of microservices, containers, automation, Java 9, ... and bring the perspective of an "outsider" together with all the presumptions, fallacies and promises. Finally I'd like to share some ideas about addressing those, promote relevant OSGi parts and perhaps make it more attractive.

Apache FlexJS Maven Migration Initiative - Introducing the flexjs-maven-plugin - Christofer Dutz, codecentric AG
While in the past it was only possible to build Flex applications with Maven using Flexmojos, now we have started creating a brand-new plugin as part of the Apache Flex project. While we are still missing a hand full of features, the path has been set and the new plugin is a much more lightweight implementation.



Parallel to this we also completely refactored the entire FlexJS project to be buildable with Maven. Both these efforts now allow us to officially publish Maven artifacts of Apache FlexJS and hereby speed up the time for people to get started with FlexJS.



In this talk I would not only like to introduce the basic functionality of our new flexjs-maven-plugin, but also the reasons and strategies we had in migrating the project from Ant to Maven.

CI and CD at Scale: Scaling Jenkins with Docker and Apache Mesos - Carlos Sanchez, CloudBees
As Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery usage grows, the underlying infrastructure needs to grow too, scaling horizontally across multiple hosts and dynamically provisioned as needed.

Docker is revolutionizing the way people think about applications and deployments. Apache Mesos enables fault-tolerant distributed systems and allows managing a cluster of Linux servers as a single system, running Docker containers across multiple hosts, offering elasticity and machine abstractions.

By using Apache Mesos and Marathon, an Apache Mesos framework for long-running applications, the Jenkins Continuous Integration environment can be run at scale, dynamically.

Jenkins masters can be run on Docker containers distributed on Marathon, while the Jenkins Mesos and Docker plugins allow slaves and jobs to run in containers distributed across the multiple hosts, and isolating job execution.

Microservices with Apache Karaf and Apache CXF: Practical Experience - Andrei Shakirin, Talend
Today Microservices architecture is widely recognized and accepted by a lot of development teams. At the same time the people realize that this architecture has some restrictions and challenges.

Interesting that Microservices and OSGi architectures are very close. The talk will analyse the core ideas of both architectures and shows the benefits provided by the OSGi Eco system for Microservices developer.

Based on practical experience, the presenter will demonstrate the best engineering practices in design and development Microservices with Apache Karaf (powered by OSGi) including modularity, resilience, continuous delivery and testability.

One important aspect of Microservices architecture is communication using lightweight mechanisms. Apache CXF is the perfect choice for this. The talk will show how to design, secure, customize and document your Microservices APIs using Apache CXF

Why and How to Build CloudStack API Plug-ins (with a Real-World Example) - Mike Tutkowski, SolidFire
Apache CloudStack is a highly customizable cloud management platform. It enables developers to write plug-ins for a wide range of areas including, but not limited to, storage, networking, VM distribution across hosts, and API.



I would like to explain why it can be beneficial to extend CloudStack's standard API with your own API commands and how to do this.



I walk the audience through a real-world example that demonstrates a business case for extending CloudStack's API. During this process, you learn how to cleanly separate the API, business, and DB layers. At the end, you have transparently extended CloudStack's API so that clients do not have to know which API commands they invoke on CloudStack are standard and which are custom added.

Diversity, When Not Playing Life on Easy - Nick Burch, Apache Software Foundation
Diversity and inclusion are becoming hot topics within our open source communities and industry, but for those of us "playing life on easy", the subject and impact can be harder to "get".



Like many people who used to play life on easy, I've had some blind spots around diversity and inclusion. I only discovered these through working on projects, communities and support at the ASF, and by moving to a new country!



Now it is my mission to help others see the light, learn for themselves, and through that build better open source communities. I'll be sharing what I learnt, giving resources, and specific takeaway actions.

How to Generate a Deployable REST CXF3 Application from a Swagger-Contract - Johannes Fiala
This talk will show how you can use Swagger-Codegen to generate a complete REST application using Apache CXF3 based on a Swagger contract and deploy it to application servers.



Features in the generated server stub include:

* Bean-Validation

* Logging

* Automatic operation validation using @Valid

* Using transparent gzipping of requests



First I'll demo how to generate the applications & how they work in the container (Tomcat + Jboss EAP), showing how the features work there.



The talk will continue how this is done using Mustache-templates in Swagger-Codegen and how additional features can be added to the generator (e.g. adding forced Gzip-support, enhancing test cases, add additional configuration files, etc.).



Additionally the Swagger toolchain will be shown during the talk (Swagger UI, Swagger Editor, Swagger2Markup to generate PDFs).

Podling Shark Tank - Roman Shaposhnik, Pivotal
Is it a panel? Is it a talk? It is a Podling Shark Tank! Back by popular demand with even sharkier judges! What is it, you ask? Well, this is just like Shark Tank TV show (think speed dating between entrepreneurs and investors) but instead of ÛÏSquirrel BossÛ and ÛÏMan CandleÛ you'll be hearing pitches for Apache Incubator projects. Also instead of Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary you'll be pitching to the panel of ASF grey beards (trying to convince them that your project is worthy of their esteemed attention and endorsement). There will be snark, there will be prizes, there will be reciting of Apache Way creed. But most of all there will be fun. We guaranteed that!

Random Numbers - When You Need Chaos in Your Software - Pedro Giffuni, Apache Software Foundation
Random numbers are inevitably tied to complex theories attempting to explain chaos, complex behavior and even obscure interpretations of the Universe and it's destiny. No one wants erratic behavior in their computer systems but random numbers and their characteristics happen to be key: they are used for everything from games to simulations and are absolutely critical for security.



No matter how common random behavior is in nature, generating random numbers in your software can be really difficult. As a matter of fact, conspiracy theorists will point out that there may be no reliable way to generate random numbers for a system in the cloud.



For Apache OpenOffice, the main random number generator has been re-written 3 times: we needed something portable but robust. While the idea has never been to get to a crypto-safe algorithm we have might have reached the final implementation.
