Behind the Scenes of the Apache Software Foundation - Lars Eilebrecht, Apache Software Foundation
This presentation will give you everything you always wanted to know about the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), but were afraid to ask. It will show you that there is more than just the Apache web server, and provide you with information on how the ASF works and its history. The difference between membership and committership, who decides what, how elections take place, the technical infrastructure, project management committees, and the philosophy behind the incubator. Come and see behind the scenes of the Apache Software Foundation and let's talk about "The Apache Way" and "Community over Code".

Gender Diversity Analysis of Technical Contributions to Apache Projects - Daniel Izquierdo, Bitergia
Gender gap in the tech industry is a fact nowadays. Open source projects such as those under the umbrella of the ASF show this lack of women developing, although no actual numbers are provided.

This talk will focus on the contributions made by women to some of the Apache projects [1] since the beginning (when possible!). This talk is specifically focused on technical contributions like commits. It is intended to be a quantitative analysis plus specific manual polishing process to help in the accuracy of the data.

[1] The analysis aims at focusing on some of the main projects detailed at https://projects.apache.org/projects.html?number

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.

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!

The Apache Way - Building Tech Community in China - Ming Wen, qihu360
OpenResty is a full-fledged web platform by integrating the standard Nginx core and LuaJIT_Îso it has high performance and flexibility. OpenResty have widely used in CloudFlare, JD.com, Qihoo 360, Sina, UPYUN and youku. In China OpenResty was not a popular technology, and no related books and videos, not friendly for beginners.

Last year, Ming Wen and few partners, set some impossible missions and try to popularize OpenResty in China by writing open source book, organizing the first OpenResty conference and multiple cities meetup,sharing in wechat group, teaching through online website, building non-profit organizations etc.

Late last year, Smartisan Technology donated one million RMB to OpenResty Software Foundation.

In this session,Ming Wen will share experiences about technical community in China, and introduce the rapid development of Chinese technology community.

How ASF Helps Out Community via GSoC (Based on GSoC 2016 Experience with Apache Gora) - Kevin Ratnasekera, WSO2
Google summer of code is one of the aspects which Apache software foundation helps out community by giving something back. As far as one can see from GSoC program each year, ASF is one of the organizations which provides largest mentoring power, that represents a significant portion of contribution the whole GSoC program is concerned. This presentation will be based on, Kevin Ratnasekera's recent personal GSoC experience with Apache Gora, how he got involved in Apache Gora community and how Apache Gora community helped him towards great contributions to ASF Gora project. That includes his GSoC project on JCache dataStore for Apache Gora, other key aspects of Apache community based development and Apache culture.

How Mentoring Can Help You Start Contributing to Open Source - Luciano Resende, IBM
As adoption of Open Source code and development practices continues to gain momentum, more newcomers have become interested in getting involved and contributing to Open Source. However, it's usually not easy for newcomers to start contributing to open source projects. This session will discuss how community mentors can ease the way for newcomers to get started with open source, and will provide an overview of existing mentoring programs such as Google Summer of Code that can help you get paired with community mentors and start contributing to open source right away.

Building Inclusive Communities - Jan Lehnardt, Neighbourhoodie Software
Inclusivity is major driver in long-term sustainability, a core tennant of the ASF culture. However, the ASF has traditionally has been lacking behind other organisations to improve on diversity and inclusion.



This talk will look at the status quo of diversity and inclusion at the ASF, where it is doing well, and where it can learn from other communities and organisations to improve.



Depending on the schedule, part of this talk could be a safe-space Q&A for discussing any questions the audience wouldnÛªt dare to ask in other circumstances.

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!

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.

Will the Apache Maturity Model Save Your Project? - Bertrand Delacretaz, Adobe
The Apache Project Maturity Model ( http://s.apache.org/maturity-model ) was written to help explain how Apache projects work, in a modular way that allows it to be adopted partially by projects who operate outside of Apache. 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.

If You Build It, They Won't Come - Ruth Suehle, Red Hat
Good code isn't enough for a successful open source project. First of all, only you know how to use what you've made. Maybe it's time for a little UI and UX help? At the very least some documentation! Next, how is anyone else going to find what you've created? And that's only the beginning. Ruth Suehle, manager of Red Hat's Open Source and Standards community leadership team, will take you through examples of the best and the worst, from projects large and small, to help you see what you need beyond your code to build a successful open source project and community.

Commercial Reasons Your Colleagues Should be Community First - Gregory Chase, Pivotal
The Apache Way prescribes ÛÏCommunity over CodeÛ, asking participants to think community-first. This may seem to run counter to commercial interests of for-profit companies. Yet, many contributors in ASF participate because its part of their job.



WouldnÛªt it be nice if the rest of your company also saw the commercial benefit of thinking community-first in their work?



This session dispels the myth that open source community action needs to be separate from commercial development and sales. WeÛªll discuss how to help your coworkers increase the impact of their daily work, meeting both the needs of growing the business and the community. They can do this with very little overhead, and enhance the impact of collective work for the benefit of users and customers. We'll discuss some theory, and explore what's worked at my pervious companies, and what the future trends look like.

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.
