Containers for Consistent and Shareable Build Environments BoF - Abhijit Paithanker, Accupara
Containers bring a whole array of benefits, but most important among them from a developer’s perspective is the packaging of a container.

It allows developers to create a specification of a build environment that can be reviewed by peers, can be version controlled and shared among it’s users (developers, QA, release management).

We show how to use Docker containers to achieve these benefits and discuss our experience in building and sharing these build environments.

Key Terms to Understand OSS Communities BoF - Hiroyuki Fukuchi, Sony

Companies face a constant challenge to introduce new people to Open Source. Employees who are familiar with open source need to communicate their skill and know-how about OSS communities and practices in an effort to train the next generation of contributors. However, because OSS communities have their own history and unwritten rules, it is difficult for newcomers to understand the behaviors of community members.

As a relative newcomer to Open Source, I would like to share my perspective on how companies' and individual's activities relate to  common sense and a shared understanding that is part of involvement in OSS communities.

I will present a categorization of human activity from sociology, dividing activity into 3 categories: Labor, Work and Action.  I will describe each of these, and explain where OSS activities fit in this categorization.  Also, I will discuss the shared understanding, critical in Open Source projects, which allows individuals to predict the behaviors of others, and know how to act themselves within OSS communities.  This session is intended to present my own thoughts on Open Source, and allow attendees to share insights from their own experience on how to transfer knowledge from one generation of Open Source participants to the next.

BoF: Fuego Status and Roadmap - Tim Bird, Sony

In this session, Tim and other leaders of the Fuego project will discuss the status of their current projects and the short-term roadmap for the Fuego Test Framework.  Come hear about this relatively new framework, how it compares with existing Open Source testing technology, and what different groups have been working on lately.  We hope to iron out a plan, during the BOF, for how we will be merging our different efforts in the next few months, and how that will fit into the long-term vision for the tool. Let us know your input and feedback!
