Is "cloud" something beyond a buzzword, and should Fedora care?
"Cloud" is one of the biggest tech buzzwords ever, like sticking dot-com on an idea a decade ago. It's slapped on anything and everything these days, sometimes with very little sense. But, there is something real underneath all that. This introductory talk covers what the cloud really is and what it isn't, with a focus on work currently going on in Fedora and on what it means for our future.

Putting the PaaS in Fedora
OpenShift Origin, the Red Hat-sponsored next generation Platform-as-a-Service, is now bundled in with Fedora. So it's time to take a closer look at the benefits of PaaS and the technical requirements for deploying one. This presentation will give you an overview of OpenShift's architecture, walk you thru deploying your applications to a PaaS & discuss how the reap the benefits of cloud computing using Open Source tools. OpenShift Origin project is licensed under the Apache License 2.0, a permissive and widely-used open source license, which was selected so that the code would be available for use by the broadest range of individuals and organizations. In this session, I'll also discuss RedHat's efforts and the Origin cross-community initiatives with OpenStack, Fedora, & OpenShift Origin to create a truly Open Cloud.

Bringing Hadoop to Fedora
Hadoop has become the poster child for "Big Data" and is at the heart of a large and ever-growing open source ecosystem. The Fedora Big Data SIG is undertaking to adapt the current Maven-based Java project to conform to Fedora Packaging Guidelines. This presentation will discuss the background and challenges of this initiative along with an update on current progress.

Federated and Free - Distributed and Decentralized Applications on OpenShift
Centralized social networks (FB, Google+, and twitter) provide a common location for folks to flock to, helping you to make connections and to share valuable experiences while online.
But, who can you trust to store your data securely?
Catch a glimpse of what future social networks may look like, as we explore the underlying architecture of federated network applications. By the end of this talk, you'll have everything you need in order to launch your own federated social network hub on OpenShift.

Scale or Fail - Give your app the Speed it Needs in the Cloud
Whether you have one or a million visitors accessing your web app, they are all going to demand a great user experience regardless of what it takes for you to deliver it. This invariably means quick page loads and fast response times every single time. In this talk we will show how core Linux tools have been used in OpenShift to deliver a kick-ass autoscaling platform. We will take a spatial web/mapping service and hit it with load and watch OpenShift just start adding new "servers" to handle the load. No proprietary solutions needed - it's all right there in Fedora 19 and you will love to see this in action.

AWS, Private Cloud, and Open Source
Amazon Web Services is the dominant public cloud provider, and more developers are moving to AWS all the time. Because of this, the ecosystem of open source tools around AWS is expanding rapidly.  We'll talk about some of these tools, why AWS compatibility is so important, and how to ensure compatibility with AWS in private clouds.

pcp+systemtap: Performance Monitoring for Workstations and Networks
Presenting Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) and SystemTap, as applied to performance/health monitoring across a network. PCP is a lightweight general-purpose API and toolset for collecting, disseminating, and analyzing rigorously sampled statistics and trace/event records. We will compare it to single-purpose tools like zabbix and to higher-level frameworks like openlmi. We will describe recent developments in systemtap, and possible connections between the two tools.

OpenShift, Fedora, and the future of packaged web apps
Having OpenShift as a built-in PaaS solution in Fedora 19 (and beyond) is great, but there are obvious differences between Fedora's packaging approach and Openshift's "cartridges and quickstarts" model. This talk is about the opportunities for collaboration between the Fedora and OpenShift communities, how to build quickstarts that will work on multiple Fedora releases, etc.

OpenStack Test Event
In this session, we'll try to setup and test latest OpenStack
packages on Fedora.

Setup details (in-progress) are here:

  https://etherpad.openstack.org/flock2013

Further notes/questions can be added to the above etherpad under
'Discussion' so that they're captured.

The idea is to catch/file bugs (and fix them), get people familiar with
hands-on OpenStack setup. Also this brings users and contributors into
the same room.

NOTE: Given the nature of OpenStack project, it's recommended to have
4GB of memory (or more) on their laptops/test machines.

Hyperscale Cloud Management with OpenStack
Open Stack is usually used to manage clouds comprised of virtual machines. Hyperscale systems open up the possibility of huge clouds of physical machines. This talk discusses our work with physical hyperscale management using Open Stack Nova.

Polyglot Spatial with FOSS in the Cloud
Spatial is a hot topic for all sorts of developers and MongoDB offers an easy way to get started. MongoDB enables search and check-in type applications - ranging from field resource management to social check-in applications. In this session we will load up a spatial database and then create web services using three different languages, Python, Java, and Node.JS. We will demonstrate the similarity and differences when getting the same functionality for a MongoDB REST-based web service. For each language I will show how to load the driver, authenticate, query, filter, and write to the database. By the end you will be amazed at the wonderful job the driver writers did on ease of use and native feel when writing code. You will also enjoy a demonstration of how easy it is to use MongoDB for your application.

See the light: SDN, OpenDaylight, Open vSwitch and Fedora
Virtual networking is the next Big Thing. While we've added support for Open vSwitch in Fedora, along with projects like Quantum (from OpenStack), there is much more work to be done. Software Defined Networking enables agility in the network that goes hand in hand with the agility you expect from your cloud infrastructure; services can be more dynamic, more intelligent, and enabled more rapidly. Come to this session and get a high-level view of SDN, OVS, OpenFlow, and OpenDaylight, learn about Fedora's possibilities for the future with these components, and hear about how some companies are already using Fedora as the basis for their SDN solutions.
