Towards a sustainable solution to open source sustainability

Business Models

A few years ago, Heartbleed epitomized a massive open source sustainability problem for critical parts of the internet infrastructure. The bug, which affected the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library, notably compromised the confidentiality of 4.5 million US patient records and cost the industry an estimated $500M. It was soon revealed that the root cause of the issue was that OpenSSL was precariously understaffed. Open source sustainability became a major theme overnight. Stories of maintainer burn-out made the headlines. And tentative solutions started to emerge, most of them donation-based. In this talk, we’ll explore a number of existing strategies to fund open source and make it more sustainable, from patronage to dedicated ad networks. And we’ll defend the idea that the best path to open source sustainability is to help companies understand the tangible business value they can get from contributing to open source.

API != REST – procmail to the rescue

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

These days, most people speaking APIs think REST API. It’s ubiquitous, uses standard protocols and formats, based on giants shoulders… For the sysadmin REST API like Redfish is a nice way to have a cross-manufacturer out of band management interface e.g. However in some case, you have constraints that do not allow you to use a REST API. When your system is not reachable directly using the HTTPS protocol e.g. In that case, you can still use an API of course, but based on other standards, such as the venerable STMP one ! Our use case, a training on demand workshop system, involves a Web front-end to manage user registration to run jupyter notebooks hosted on a back-end hosting the jupyterhub instance as well as all the companion systems needed to perform the various workshops proposed (on Redfish, Git, Rust as visible on https://hackshack.hpedev.io/workshops and through the HPE WW demo portal https://hpedemoportal.ext.hpe.com/) So to make it work flawlessly, we used an SMTP based API, the front-end generating the SMTP content and the back-end using procmail, some scripts and ansible playbooks to manage the setup of the user environment. Once logged on the platform, the user has acces to its own workshop content, with all the links to the other systems available to perform the actions. Why SMTP ? Well our needs were small enough to avoid developing a full REST one (even if we have also one for the front-end), we benefit from the asynchronous aspect of e-mail for free in the management of requests, and it’s fun to use old methods to show young engineers that there is more than one way to do it 😉 Interested ? Well come to hear how we did that and we’ll show you how it works, from the automatic deployment of the platform up to the run of a workshop.

OpenSSF CII Best Practices Badge

Cyber Security / Privacy / Blockchain

Open Source Software (OSS) is critical in the world today. However, while some OSS follow security-related best practices, others do not, sometimes leading to dangerous security vulnerabilities. To address this, the Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) Best Practices Badge program was created. The CII Best Practices badge program created security and sustainment “best practices” criteria and a process so OSS projects could get a badge for meeting these criteria. This incentivizes projects to apply best practices and helps users identify projects using best practices. This presentation will discuss the current status of the badging program. It will highlight key criteria for its various levels (passing, silver, and gold), the projects with badges, security improvements that projects have made to get the badge, natural language support (French, German, etc.), and some interesting ways that projects have met the criteria. We will also discuss participation over time (now over 3,800 participating projects). Finally, the presentation will discuss its connections in the larger world, including its becoming part of the Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) and the potential impact of the US Executive Order on Cybersecurity.

PostgreSQL, more than just a database, a multi-use platform

Big Data / Data Visualization

PostgreSQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS), which is generating excitement and being increasingly adopted around the world. Ranked as DBMS of the year three times in the past four years by the DB-Engines website, PostgreSQL is far more than just a database engine. It natively offers a wide range of features onto which a number of mature tools are grafted, meaning that it is a genuine platform for making the best use of the data it manages.

The aim of this presentation provided by the PGGTIE (Intercompany working group on PostgreSQL – https://www.postgresql.fr/entreprises) of the PostgreSQL.fr association is to share feedback from large French companies (IGN, SocGen, MAIF, leboncoin) on the implementation of features that are sometimes disregarded and yet are widely proven (geographic use, NoSQL, JSON, OnPrem/OnCloud, etc.).

Time for discussion will be set aside to allow participants to put all their PostgreSQL questions to the PGGTIE’s experts, who will share their experience of adoption, new features, difficulties, successes, etc.

Data Privacy, enforcing it through end to end encryption !

Cyber Security / Privacy / Blockchain

As shown since the release of GDPR, the efforts required to get it enforced seem to be almost useless. Newspeak or marketing tricks are being used to get users to accept to give their data away. Proper subcontracting or self hosting can help for misuse, but does not protect the data from hacking or leaks. This talk aims to show how CryptPad an end-to-end encryption collaboration platform helps enforce data privacy by protecting it right on the user’s device before it being sent to the server platform, while providing a great user-experience and many collaboration features. With end-to-end encryption we can feel much safer that our data is not misused and protected.

The publisher’s brand – Impacts on its ecosystem

Business Models

It is not uncommon to hear of open source software publishers holding discussions with their communities of developers or integrators regarding the names of the products they supply. These issues plainly have a direct impact on the reputation of open source projects, on the attractiveness of the ecosystem for recruiting new developers and even on the business of the network of partners or integrators.

How should a publisher manage its brand? Should it promote several names? We all remember Red Hat vs Fedora. Should it involve its ecosystem in these concerns and, if yes, how? What about changes of brands or product names and their repercussions?

In this presentation, based on experience and analysis undertaken following the renaming of eZ Systems / eZ Publish (open source CMS) as Ibexa, Bertrand Maugain, Co-CEO of Ibexa, will provide a generic presentation of the challenges revolving around a publisher’s brand for optimising the “ecosystem” dynamics.

Continuous transformation of in-production applications

Full Stack / Web

Some people believe that an application has a lifespan of a few years and after that the application needs to be re-written with the latest tools. We prefer to continuously develop our in-production applications and safeguard the investment that they represent.

We have applications deployed for the first time almost 20 years ago, which are still in daily use, although they have been subjected to numerous major transformations over time.

In this presentation, we will attempt to detail the continuous year-on-year transformation process, which has involved all aspects of projects: the underlying governance of open source software, the architecture of applications, the open source libraries and components used, data storage, the user interface, the external API, the programming languages used, the testing and deployment methods, the monitoring tools, etc.

We will conclude with the current trends, which are largely seeking to increase the frequency of deployments while maintaining the level of quality and are based on an increasing automation of processes, including for the modification of source code.

LibreOffice: Improve project sustainability

Business Models

The launch of LibreOffice was announced in 2010. After 10 years, it was essential to review and update the strategy in line with market developments for office suites, in order to improve the sustainability model. Businesses are not as supportive of the project as individual users. Over time, this could pose a threat to the sustainability of the project. We have changed our strategy to educate companies on the right approach to open source software, by giving something back to ensure the long-term sustainability of the LibreOffice project.

Monitor your Python tests to optimise your code!

Big Data / Data Visualization

Writing unit tests is good. It actually forms the basis of all high-quality development, in order to specifically ensure the non-regression of current and future code. However, being able to analyse your unit tests is even better. And that is the aim of Pytest-Monitor, a plugin for the Pytest framework, which allows you to analyse the use of the resources of the machine executing the tests, and of its companion, Monitor-Server-API. At present, three resources are monitored and their history logged by this extension:

run time,
memory consumption,
CPU usage.

As each result is attached to a runtime environment, it is easy to compare the impact of the hardware used to run your tests. With Pytest-Monitor, developers are directly able to measure the impact of a contribution or a development on performance, to check that a version upgrade of dependencies does not have an impact on the program’s footprint. Or integrators are even able to measure the impact of a change of hardware.

During the course of this conference, we will

explain the origin of this plugin and its opening up by CFM
demonstrate the ease of implementation
perform a quick demonstration based on an actual case

The presentation will also showcase Monitor-server-API, which allows you to go a step further by collecting and logging the history of analysis results in a centralised manner for one or more projects using Pytest-Monitor and enabling comparisons to be made between them. We will highlight actual and real examples of requests via a REST API or a library enabling complex requests in a few lines of code.

Quick Apps: fast development, flexible distribution (sponsored intrevention)

Full Stack / Web

We, developers and publishers, love transparency and flexibility when distributing our apps and services. Traditional marketplaces usually limit the freedom to choose the right delivery platform and the underlying core services that the app uses. Quick App, is a new vendor-neutral framework for mobile application development, enables developers to quickly and efficiently create hybrid light applications with significant access to a device’s native resources while opens a new dimension in the app distribution.

This interactive workshop aims to discuss the Quick App platform from an open-source perspective and analyze the publishing market requirements and the opportunities this platform brings in application performance, monetization, and marketplace flexibility. Short introductory presentations, followed by an open session, will let the public interact with the speakers on the topics like: Light app ecosystem and standardization in W3C; Need for more flexibility and opportunities in-app marketplaces, avoiding barriers to open source projects; Existing use cases and the future potential of games built on light app infrastructure; Exploration of requirements for app publishers; Leveraging the OW2 Quick App Initiative to spread the adoption of this technology, including everyone in the discussion.

One 100% open source cloud infrastructure and IDaaS solution (sponsored talk)

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

To meet our customers’ needs, we have implemented a multi-client and multi-service cloud infrastructure based solely on open-source components: OVirt, OKD (Kubernetes), AWS, Jenkins, Prometheus, FreeIPA, Foreman, etc.

This platform, called W’Opla, has allowed us to create an offering to compete with Office 365 and Google Apps: W’Sweet. This solution, deployed as containers, allows us to instance BlueMind, NextCloud, Rocket.Chat, and Jitsi so that each organisation can benefit from the data isolation and Kubernetes process execution.

With this experience and our expertise in identity and access management, we have implemented a new ‘Identity as a Service’ offering called W’IDaaS. It also relies on open source software: OpenLDAP, LDAP Tool Box, LemonLDAP::NG, LSC, FusionDirectory. Each client has its own directory and authentication portal that is compatible with SAML and OpenID Connect. As far as we know, it is the first 100% open source and sovereign IDaaS solution.

Protocols’ extension to existing SIP standards, implementation challenges and future extensions : LI

Cyber Security / Privacy / Blockchain

For many years, our SIP client, Linphone, has been one of the most active free communication software. Originally focused on voice, additional functionalities were rapidly added like video, group chat and presence. All these communication modes imply privacy. To achieve a good level of privacy, users must be able to ensure that their communications can only be displayed by the entitled receiver of those communications. Especially, no-one from the server infrastructure crossed by the messages should be in the position of compromising secrecy of the communication. Basically, this is what end-to-end encryption is aiming to achieve. Our SIP client Linphone does implement end-to-end encryption for voice and video communications thanks to ZRTP (rfc 6189). However, for messaging, security was only performed by using point-to-point cyphering, based on SIP TLS. To bring users of instant messaging features the same level of security, we decided to implement end-to-end encryption mechanisms for messaging too, including group chat. Linphone Instant Messaging Encryption follows state-of-the-art methods for forward secrecy and MitM detection. This discussion will focus on protocols’ extension to existing SIP standards, implementation challenges and future extensions. The following topics will also being mentioned in our presentation :

  • End-to-end encryption based on modern elliptic curve cryptography
  • Perfect forward secrecy with double ratchet algorithm
  • Designed for group communications
  • Asynchronous messaging system based on pre-positioned keys
  • Man-in-the-middle detection based on ZRTP auxiliary secret

R for Data Science in Higher Education and Research

Open Science

Universities and business schools are trapped in organizational inertia. Why would they still pay for closed source statistical software that is not used in the real world (e.g., SPSS by IBM)? Professors teach what they were taught. This lack of continuous education is unacceptable in a data-driven world. I call for the advent of open-source statistical software for both teaching and research. R must now become the norm as it can be used in several software solutions, according to the profiles of the students (e.g., Jamovi for beginners and RStudio for advanced practitioners). During this session, I will share my experience as an internationally recognized instructor of data science (e.g., in France, Germany, and Colombia). I will explain in detail how higher education and research can benefit from an open-source mindset by using personal examples. By doing so, I hope to motivate participants to enact change in their own organizations.

Construction and management of container images with the aid of Kaniko

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

Application deployment in Docker or Kubernetes is overwhelmingly performed with the use of container images. Historically, this work has been undertaken with the aid of Docker. Only a few years ago in Kubernetes, the presence of the engine was commonplace, nowadays this is less and less the case. Beyond this established fact, the use of a Docker engine in this type of situation poses other problems, specifically in terms of security.

The Kaniko project – version 0.1 dates back to 2018 and version 1.0 to 2020 – was created to meet this need by completely changing the way in which images are constructed.

The first part of the presentation will look at the operating principle of this tool. A second part will be devoted to its use in the construction of images for standard projects (Maven + Spring boot, NPM + react, Python) and a few tips for best optimising your deliverables, including specifically:
– The use of Kaniko behind a proxy
– Use of cache for maven/gradle/npm/yarn/pip repositories – to avoid downloading everything for each build
– Storing original images in a cache
– The implementation of sidecars to enable unit tests to be run connected to a database
– Various, different tips for fully optimising the size of deliverables (choice of images, advice on their use)

Open source and industry verticals

Governance & Strategies

The open source collaboration and governance model has facilitated the emergence of numerous generic software technologies such as Linux/GNU, HTTP Apache server, Kubernetes, etc. Today, open source unquestionably plays a central role in the development of generic IT solutions.
More recently, the open source model has also been implemented and proven its worth in meeting the specific needs of industry verticals. The ONAP project (https://www.onap.org/), for example, which was launched in 2016 at the instigation of AT&T to fulfil a strategic aim of the virtualisation of telecommunications network management and orchestration functions, benefited from rapid development and became a benchmark for the sector.
Inspired by this success, in 2018, RTE, the French electricity transmission system operator, set about building an open source ecosystem in order to overcome the challenges of the energy transition and of transforming the resulting electrical systems. This initiative led to the creation of the open source foundation LF Energy (https://www.lfenergy.org/), which is currently growing, in terms of both members and the projects it is hosting.
In early 2020, SNCF in turn was inspired by the RTE initiative – its partner in TOSIT (https://tosit.fr ) – to reflect on the opportunity for a “Rail open source”.
By means of previous examples, this conference will illustrate how open source can be used to overcome the challenges of industry verticals, by highlighting the motivations and anticipated benefits, the difficulties encountered and sharing the initial lessons learned.

We will look at various aspects such as:

  • When to open source ?
  • What to open source ?
  • Which license should I prefer and why ?
  • Community building
  • Benefits obtained if done right.

Open Sourcing done right is source of both intellectual satisfaction and business returns.

Building a user-friendly CLI tool

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

The command line is austere… and many people would prefer to avoid it if possible.
However, many tools are only available in this way, and you can sometimes feel quite powerless when you want to use them… but that should not be the case!

The design for a command line tool, as for any application, can radically change the user experience for better or worse.
But what makes a good CLI tool: simplicity? respect for conventions? intuitiveness? customisation? integration with the environment? auto-completion? a graphic interface?

Let’s invent the Command Line eXperience!

The Go ecosystem around CLIs is highly developed, let’s see how to take advantage of it in order to rapidly build a simple and user-friendly tool.

Cloud: some lessons learned from my (our) failures

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

Caution this session is a real-life feedback, some of these could hurt sensible audience 😉 I have been practicing OSS and Cloud for years and along the way I have been through some mistakes. I started on 2012 with OpenStack and its ecosystem, then Kubernetes’ one in 2016 and now I’m going through on Multi-cloud Kubernetes (AWS, AKS, OpenShit), GitOps, and migration to K8s projects. Technical and management complexity have increased exponentially since major companies have been started to implement at scale OSS. From these projects, on some we succeeded and others we failed, I have learnt a lot and I would like to share during this sessions some of take-away lessons:

=> A Cloud Platform = 1 Product = 1 Dedicated Team

=> Be smart and stay modest: Cloud Technologies are complex

=> Avoiding the “we will see what happens” attitude

=> Build on On-boarding approach and a clear operating model

AliceVision : an open-source 3D reconstruction pipeline

Open Science

AliceVision is a Photogrammetric Computer Vision Framework providing 3D Reconstruction and Camera Tracking algorithms. It allows creating a 3D textured model from the analysis of a set of unordered images of a static scene taken with any type of cameras, from professional cameras to smartphones. Meshroom is the graphical user interface built around AliceVision. It has a nodal-based interface, with a default reconstruction pipeline that can be customized for specific acquisition systems or industrial workflows. The nodal pipeline is split into small tasks that can be computed on multiple machines in parallel on render farm. This nodal pipeline also allows the end user to customize the workflow for a specific acquisition setup or to add dedicated nodes to run any task from another script or piece of software. Meshroom has been used since 2014 in digital environment creation for the Visual Effects industry and now in many other industries including manufacturing, medical, cultural heritage, tourism, archeology, biology, surveillance and 3D printing. During this session, we will present the technology behind AliceVision, illustrated by some concrete examples of production pipelines built around it. Check out our website : alicevision.org

Infrastructure as Code: what are the trends? From cloud automation to multi-cloud orchestration!

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

There are numerous open source infrastructure automation solutions currently on the market and it can be difficult to make a choice.

From configuration management tools to orchestrators, not forgetting template generation tools, which should you use and how? Are orchestrators essential in current cloud architectures? Should the orchestration of IaaS resources be dissociated from PaaS or CaaS services? What issues are resolved by Infrastructure as Code? Are there market leading technologies or solutions? Does Infrastructure as Code have an impact on security? Does it benefit observability? What are the current major trends for Infrastructure as Code and how can we anticipate these developments? Is it a “must-have” for multi-cloud management?

A number of open source Infrastructure As Code tools will be examined, including Terraform, Pulumi and Ansible, in order to highlight all their potential, their synergies and their limits.

The future of Infrastructure as Code will also be addressed, in particular with the arrival of Kubernetes-based solutions as the control plane for your Infrastructure as Code, such as the Crossplane open source solution for understanding how a container orchestrator can become an infrastructure orchestrator.

The aim of this session is to provide participants with a good overall view of how Infrastructure as Code works and the different families of tools that it comprises, while anticipating the next developments, in order to continuously improve the robustness and reliability of their infrastructures. Participants will go away with an up-to-date understanding of this market and will be able to identify the benefits and drawbacks of Infrastructure as Code in their own environment.

Feedback from the Haute-Savoie local council: from a siloed environment to an Open Source Digital Workplace (sponsored talk)

Business Apps

‘Our network infrastructure didn’t allow us to share documents between various departments easily. Each new need for data collection and sharing between business applications had to go through the IT department, which generated a large number of tickets and took up a lot of time. In order to be more efficient and agile, the French department of Haute-Savoie decided to do away with silos within the local authority. That’s why the IT department sought out an efficient, open source, collaborative EDM. Today, thanks to the GoFAST solution, it takes less time to draft documents and makes it much easier to exchange information and work together.’ Ms Patricia Mugnier, IT Project Manager at the IT Innovation and Digital Usage Cluster in the French department of Haute-Savoie.

An allegory for the success of open science applied to maths – the HoTT project

Open Science

Open science, an old idea that has resurfaced as an obvious choice…. Even though its benefits are still not evident.
4 years after the death of Vladimir Voevodsky, I would like to talk to you about how this brilliant mathematician took part in the establishment of one of the most dazzling open science projects while, contrary to what you might expect, high-level mathematics had a tendency to be extremely closed and resistant to reproducibility.
And I am not talking about any old project: it involved nothing less than re-writing the foundations of mathematics, including automated theorem proving.
We will look at how the practices put in place, inspired by open source software, engendered this success and paved the way for greater openness in high-level maths. And how open and collaborative science is a major gain for human knowledge.

LFEnergy Seapath: Virtualization for real-time power grid subsation automation

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

The Power grid substation automation is moving toward virtualization. In order to facilitate this transition it is necessary to have a reference design and industrial grade open source real-time platform that can run virtualized automation and protection applications (for the power grid industry and potentially beyond). That is why RTE, Alliander and Savoir-faire Linux created SEAPATH project under the governance of Linux foundation Energy. Several solutions already exist but they cover only part of the needs. That’s why the project aims to assemble the right packages with as few specific developments as possible. The effort is put on testing to ensure that all the parts, hardware and software fulfill the needs for critical system. The first part of the presentation is about the virtualization platform which is built from the Yocto project with virtualization, high availability and cybersecurity features. The second part is about, a suite of test tools based on the IEC61850 standard that will validate that the platform can indeed host automation and protection applications.

Lessons learned from the development of open source photogrammetry software

Open Science

MicMac is 3D modelling software based on images (photogrammetry). Initially developed to meet the specific needs of the IGN (French National Institute of Geographic and Forestry Information), it is one of the oldest open source photogrammetry modelling software packages. It has been open source since 2007 and has enabled 3D models to be generated 100% automatically from an unordered collection of images since 2012. It is also used in an industrial context by the IGN, in services produced by the ESA and by various players in the defence sector.

Developed in a laboratory for the purposes of research, it is now reaching the limits of a tool created by “spontaneous generation”. A completely revamped version 2 was launched 2 years ago. This presentation will assess the conclusions drawn from 15 years’ development, by specifically addressing funding models, software distribution and the development approach adopted.

We will also look at the lessons learned from this for the new version, in particular prioritisation in terms of uses, which will focus on education and open and reproductive science.

Open Source for Railways ? An SNCF example with OSRD

Business Apps

Les besoins en mobilité évoluent régulièrement, et touchent aussi bien les personnes que les marchandises. A l’apparition de chacun de ces besoins, le système ferroviaire cherche la meilleure réponse à apporter. Plusieurs stratégies peuvent être adoptées : modifications d’horaires, ajustement du parc matériel roulant ou encore modifications ou création d’infrastructures (relèvement de vitesse, mise en place de nouvelles signalisations, nouvelle ligne ou nouveau produit), etc. A chaque stratégie correspond souvent un investissement considérable. Il est donc indispensable de comparer les scénarios entre eux avant de se lancer dans un tel projet. C’est là qu’entrent en jeu les études d’exploitation qui vont analyser chaque scénario envisagé. L’étude quantitative et qualitative de ces différents scénarios donne des orientations et des indications sur leur pertinence. Les simulations ferroviaires, qu’elles soient statiques ou dynamiques, servent donc à apprécier l’opportunité de réaliser un projet, et aident à prendre les décisions les plus objectives possibles. Chaque étude d’exploitation peut s’appuyer sur différents outils de simulation ferroviaire disponibles sur le marché. Pourtant, SNCF Réseau a décidé de développer le sien en Open Source : c’est ce qui a donné naissance à Open Source Railway Designer (OSRD) https://github.com/DGEXSolutions/osrd-core.

Can Linux serve Functional Safety as well as Cyber Secured domains

IoT / Embedded / Edge Computing / Smart City / Smart Industry

Linux in the past years has demonstrated its capability to serve highly secured applications. Will it be also capable to cover Functional Security demand ? Are we soon going to see ASIL B or D Linux based on the market ? While the basic tools required to serve Cyber Secured and Functional Secured applications are similar and even often identical, the process currently used for Functional Safety certification remains a serious challenge and still bars access to Functional Security to most Open Source applications. As we are now seeing the first systems claiming compliance with the CEI 61508 or ISO 26262 (automotive), we will look how those early players are configuring their systems to achieve compliance with Open Source based OS and try to demonstrate that the future will most likely follow that new trend.

From metrics to KPIs : Rating Operator

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

When referring to Data in the cloud context, engineers may often think of them as time series. Time series are a Data format storing variables values along with their timestamps, as for example system or sensor metrics. Data help to identify current execution status, as well as behavior or trends by sysadmins, and are used to build predictive models by data scientists. While there is a lot of information held in time series, they may not be expressive by themselves. They can either come in too great of a number, size, pace, or need specific transformation to provide end-user, human, readability. Nowadays, Cloud providers propose additional services, which deliver domain oriented information based on time series analytics, but these additional services are for the most part not free and very specialized. Rating-Operator is an open source Kubernetes application aiming to provide sysadmins and domain-oriented users, such as business developers, with KPIs built from time series metrics. These KPIs can either be infrastructure costs, applicative performance or any other kind of execution and business efficiency indicators. https://github.com/alterway/rating-operator In this talk, we will introduce Rating-Operator and demonstrate its usage : from defining and pushing a set of pricing rules, to making them available as a new datasource and achieve a public Cloud costs comparison use case.

During this conference, we will describe the benefits and drawbacks of each solution (GNU/Linux or Android) depending on the envisaged project, on the basis of a number of criteria:

– areas of application
– architecture and technical issues
– available development tools
– consideration of security
– licence management
– commercial constraints (cost, certification/compatibility)

Developments in the governance of open source projects

Governance & Strategies

The open source software movement began to organise itself in the mid-1980s and you would think that, after 35 years, it would have found an optimum way of working that is no questioned nowadays. However, this is not the case – quite the contrary. The organisation of open source projects is continuing to evolve, calling established models into question, in search of ever-increasing efficiency. This can be perceived, specifically, in four developments: lean management of contributions from a legal perspective with increasing adoption of the Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO), increasing popularity of permissive licences, a decline in historic governance models (meritocracy and a benevolent dictator for life) in favour of a democratic model and the emergence of new foundations embodying these changes.

This conference will present these four developments and the driving forces behind them.

Presentation of the TOSIT member Orange France’s fully open source GIS with its partner Oslandia

Business Apps

In 2016, Orange France launched a project to redesign its Geographic Information System. This project covers a set of applications based on a software package within a unique open source infrastructure.
This new platform needs to overcome a number of challenges:
– Scalability: Monitor new developments provided by all communities
– Mobility: Facilitate uses on the ground.
– Openness: Democratise mapping uses in Orange’s IS
– Performance: Fluidity of uses and application-to-application exchanges
To deal with these challenges, the platform is based on a sizeable technical architecture within which the mapping services are deployed. The QGIS server is its core component.

Orange France established a partnership with Oslandia at the very start of this project, in order to benefit from an expert vision, as well as to become a major player by publishing shared work.

In this session, our intention is to present the architecture of the mapping platform, as well as the open source strategy put in place by Orange France (including a partnership with Oslandia) in order to ensure the successful creation of this open source mapping platform.

Open source and patents, the OVHcloud strategy for securing its OS approach internationally

Governance & Strategies

As the leading European cloud provider, OVHcloud is absolutely convinced of the importance of an open and sovereign cloud and the place of open source in this strategy. Through its values, which focus on trust, collaboration and reversibility, OVHcloud has always supported and contributed to the open source ecosystem (the company is specifically a member of The Linux Foundation and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation).

Faced with the international threat of software patents and patent trolls, OVHcloud has gradually built up a portfolio of patents from a purely defensive perspective: in order to protect OVHcloud from the risks posed by software patents in its domain and, more broadly, in order discourage open source infringements on the basis of software patents.

OVHcloud’s strategy raised legitimate questions on the part of the community, leading the company to clarify its approach in 2020 to make it intelligible and transparent for everyone. A set of declarations were also made and actions taken: systematically making use of secure open source licences for distributed software, such as the Bastion security infrastructure, the Kubernetes operator for Harbor or the Erlenmeyer and Catalyst tools, joining the Open Invention Network (OIN) and the LOT Network and publishing its own especially broad Patent Pledge for the benefit of open source communities. https://www.ovhcloud.com/en-gb/about-us/patent-pledge/

This conference will provide the opportunity to present both the vision of a player such as OVHcloud on a fairly sensitive issue (combining an OS approach with a safeguarding approach in terms of international patents while remaining consistent with its values and those of open source communities), as well to share concerns, best practice and tools that were useful in implementing this approach both internally and externally.

Bénévalibre: a collective success story

Open Source Responsable

Faced with the increasingly pressing need to recognise volunteering within associative structures, the Bénévalibre project was born. In addition to complying with regulations that now require volunteering to be mentioned in associations’ accounts, this census of the work of volunteers also offers the opportunity to provide a clearer view of the proportion of local authority or government subsidies, where appropriate.

So, in order to simply satisfy this requirement, a group of associations decided to have a dedicated tool developed and made available: Bénévalibre. It is primarily intended for very small associations.

The collective approach adopted during development and the convergence of partners with complementary expertise (Comité Régional des Associations de Jeunesse et d’Éducation Populaire, April, Framasoft) subsequently enabled financial partners such as the Fondation du Crédit Coopératif, the Burgundy Regional Council and even the state, to be sought.

Even though there were numerous discussions when drawing up the specification and there were many and varied attempts to add certain features, the steering committee strove to adhere to the guiding principle of maintaining the simplicity of the tool and attempted to consider volunteers who are not comfortable with digital tools.

Finally, in order to remain consistent with the desire to develop a common tool that is of use to all associations, development was entrusted to an open source software cooperative (CLISS XXI).

It is this journey, from the concept to the production version, that it is our intention to present by focusing on the collective aspects and the way in which funding was secured.

Share your code and not your secrets

Cyber Security / Privacy / Blockchain

Platforms for hosting and sharing open source code (Github, Gitkab, BitBucket, etc.) are the mainstay for the distribution and organisation of open source software. They enable source code to be structured, contributions to be orchestrated, versioning to be organised and the community of contributors to be managed, as well as providing a vital showcase for all open source projects.
Presenting your source code to the public is a vital part of the open source sharing approach, but it can lead its author to disclose vulnerabilities that can be more or less easily exploited by an attacker. One of the most common and easier to exploit vulnerabilities consists a leaving secrets (API keys, passwords, tickets, confidential information, etc.) unencrypted in the code or in the code’s change log. The consequences of this kind of vulnerability can prove disastrous for companies, organisations and citizens. The 2016 case of Uber, which suffered a leak of the personal data of 57 million of their clients because of an unprotected password in Github, is a prime example of this.
In this presentation, we will discuss the reasons that may result in this kind of vulnerability, ways of protecting yourself from them and various open source tools enabling projects to be scanned and the risk of disclosing secrets to be detected upstream.

Vitam, an open source digital archiving solution supported by the French state but accessible to everyone

Governance & Strategies

Starting from a situation shared by everyone, that of a digital tsunami of data and documents produced by organisations, a group of expert archivists and computer scientists has delved into the subject and worked to come up with a solution for storing them, with the watchword being sharing:
– sharing within a programme, combining open source, partnerships and agile organisation,
– sharing technological challenges based around probative value, sustainability and digital preservation, with innovative choices,
– sharing thanks to a community of users with widely varied profiles and projects, who are invited to contribute to the software solution.
These founding principles have enabled an inter-ministerial programme to be structured with the aim of producing a software solution enabling data originating from big data to be archived and to be re-usable by everyone, which thereby enables a legal requirement to be fulfilled: “my data originating from my business IS and produced in 2019, I must be able to store it and guarantee that I will have access to it, with complete integrity, until 2039… ”. These principles have also fostered the emergence of a club of users, which ensures that the solution is used, which has a place on governance bodies and which is a source of contributions and shared projects. This session will provide the opportunity to take stock of Vitam users: who are they? what do they want? how are they involved? In order to examine whether, for you too, the Vitam open source software solution would be perfect for archiving your data.

What is the business model for open source in the 21st century?

Business Models

1. Findings from organisations and companies:
– The needs include: responsiveness, trust, simplicity, transparency, guarantees, high-quality services, support, sustainability, relevant development of solutions.
– Increasingly exacting requirements: data control, sovereignty, security, technological standards, independence (cf. licences)
– Market trends: why are many people opting for Big Tech solutions despite the heavy dependence and costs of these? Focus on the customer approach: the need to have an account manager and not just a community of developers, feature-rich functionality in order to satisfy business requirements while providing more than the market leading proprietary solutions, communication understandable by non-IT decision-makers.
2. Open source: how to move from a “technology” to a “service”?
– Historic view of open source: a technology, a community, open source code, being “free” (N.B.: there are still costs! Internal if you opt for a “technology” and external if you opt for a “service”).
– What is meant by “service”? Focus on: how to satisfy the new needs and requirements with a minimum impact on the internal costs of organisations and their IS? How to provide sufficient guarantees (availability, security, etc.)? How to move from an “IT-focus” to a “user-focus”?
– How to compete with the market leaders, including Big Tech, with an open source solution? Focus on: combining the benefits of open source with a “client” focused business model, offering excellent value for money, guiding without dictating (a pragmatic and objective approach).
3. Example of a proven business model (GoFAST Digital Workplace):
– How to implement “SaaS/OnPremise” with open source and what are the inherent constraints?
– Why is there a need for sufficient profitability of the business model?
– How to interact with the community, in order to correctly focus developments?

LinTO: a sovereign, open source voice framework

AI / Robotics

LinTO is a voice technology and smart conversational platform that allows its users to control a variety of services with their voice.
The LinTO platform is 100% open source, respects personal data (especially voice), and is sovereign (free of big American tech firms). It offers a set of tools such as wake words, transcription, processing intentions and managing skills.
LinTO allows you to install smart assistants designed for professional use cases. These assistants help employees in their daily tasks and interactions and are offered as a layer of voice access in end-user products.
The main use cases are:
– Operating a managed large-vocabulary voice recognition service (LinTO transcription service API) whose performance is comparable to or better than our big American and Chinese competitors.
– The meeting minutes editing platform (LinTO Conversation Manager) transcribes and corrects remote and in-person meeting minutes by integrating with the open-source web conference platform Jitsi. This tool offers a set of smart assistants based on natural language processing algorithms to help produce meeting minutes.
Available under an AGPL licence, the entire LinTO platform can be deployed within the IT system. It was developed with funding from BpiFrance as part of the ‘Grand Défis du Numérique LinTO’ investment programme.

Testimony from Orange France (member of TOSIT), developing Intelligent Chatbots using Rasa

AI / Robotics

In this session, We propose to discuss how Orange use the open source technology Rasa to develop Djingo, a contextual AI assistant that can assist customers quickly and in a personalized way. The Challenge As the #1 telecom brand in France, Orange always prioritizes customer satisfaction, it is essential to continuously improve our user experience while controlling costs. We set out to create an interactive, self-service resource capable of first-line technical troubleshooting and answering questions about customer accounts. The Solution Orange France developed Djingo: a contextual AI assistant that interacts with customers much like a human chat agent, through the text-based conversational interfaces. Djingo is made on top of a 100% open source stack, including Rasa for NLU and dialogue management. Orange chose Rasa for its flexibility, its ability to execute on premise, and its fully machine learning-based approach. With every conversation users have with Djingo, the assistant learns and improves, providing greater accuracy over time. A Rasa Community is also created within Orange so that Rasa users could be closely linked and reinforce each other. The mutual exchanges accelerate development and provide internal technical support. The Results We developed a real partnership with Rasa based on 3 axes: developing skills rapidly, correcting bugs quickly, and sharing a wish list with the dev team. Happy customers, happy developers, a win-win partnership! Since deploying Djingo, customer satisfaction is on the rise, with the ability to resolve issues when they happen, day or night.

Open Cloud: why Open Source and Open Standards are still important in the Cloud era

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

There are many interesting benefits of Cloud and SaaS for clients as economies of scale and service quality can increase when services are being managed by the creators of the business software. However the typical Cloud business model is to attract customers by giving them something free and then taking it back progressively. Cloud services are using this strategy extensively, and then evolving their business model and use the lock-in of proprietary software to increase their pricing and their revenue. It also has the effect of global platforms not letting competition integrate with their offerings and as well favoring their own offerings. In this talk we will share the experience of some customers now looking for alternatives after being let down by a proprietary software vendor going “Cloud first” and raising their prices for both on-premise and cloud software. In this talk I would like to address the importance of Open Source and Open Standards for the Cloud and SaaS businesses. Can customers trust providers that are letting them down and asking for even more control on the customer. Customers should favor Open Cloud companies which propose their services on the Cloud while building their offer fully Open. This talk will also address Open Standards which can help by allowing data portability and integrations between platforms.

The OW2 Market Readiness Levels method. A tool for IT decision-makers.

Business Models

Public launch session for the OW2 Market Readiness Levels method.

The evaluation of open source projects is a constant challenge that OW2 has successfully overcome by defining a unique composite indicator, which it now applies to its projects. This indicator facilitates the evaluation of open source projects by the managers of company IT systems.

Open source software is expanding in two major directions. On the one hand, by being incorporated into the layers of IT systems, from the operating system to business applications, open source software is increasingly being used by non-IT specialists. On the other hand, by becoming “mainstream”, the market is becoming commoditized, as far as including decision-makers who are not very familiar with open source. For these new users trained in the business practices of proprietary software vendors, open source is a counter-intuitive model, the specific technical, legal and community aspects of which are a source of doubt, which is not conducive to positive decisions..

It is essential to talk to “mainstream” decision-makers in a language they understand. This is the role of the Market Readiness Levels (MRL) method for evaluating open source projects developed by OW2. With MRL, decision-makers have an index, which ranks open source projects on the basis of “business” decision criteria, which they are accustomed to. Open source will come to them.

The session begins with a presentation of the MRL method, its three levels of analysis and the hundred or so criteria taken into account (20’). It then turns to five projects evaluated using the method, namely XWiki, LemonLDAP, BlueMind, Lutece and OCS Inventory. They explain how the method also provides the means to define a roadmap for their development on the “mainstream” market (25’). The session ends with a round table and questions from the floor (15’).

For an open, shared & tool-based approach to open source compliance – the Hermine project

Governance & Strategies

The widespread adoption of open source in all industrial sectors of our society is prompting organisations to collectively reconsider the efforts needed in terms of open source compliance.

When it comes to meeting a common non-differentiating need, it is both logical and natural for the tools developed to be open source, in order to allow costs to be shared and best practice to be exchanged.

In the specific area of compliance (which relates, in this case, to respecting third party intellectual property), such a collective approach also brings about a reduction in the associated legal risks: improved traceability, greater transparency of licence information relating to packages and standardised interpretation of the main requirements for benefiting from these licences

The ecosystem of open source compliance is now extremely rich in high-quality open source elements, including tools, data or standards. Within this framework, it is a matter of presenting the complementary approach initiated during the course of 2020 by the firm Inno³ in order to develop, with a group of companies organising the use of open source within their organisation, a tool for managing open source software components (Software Bill of Materials), licence policies and their obligations.

This presentation aims to explain the advantages of the approach and to present the Hermine project from the perspective of its components (shared software and data) and its emerging community.

Survival tips for prioritizing cyber threats

Cyber Security / Privacy / Blockchain

Solutions must be found to face the overall growing threat of attacks, talent shortage and cost optimization challenges in cybersecurity. The current trend is to rely on automation and orchestration of security operations. The fact is automating SecOps activities leads to manage more security alerts. The downside is that potentially a bunch of new security alerts every day. By the way, with hundreds of vulnerabilities with critical or high severity to deal with, the daily security reports look like a shining Christmas tree. It could definitely lead to jaded teams or, even worse, bad decisions in vulnerability handling. Obviously, it is not realistic to hope that all vulnerabilities will be fixed. A line have to be drawn by the business owners according with the security teams. Prioritization is an essential success factor for improving efficiency and continue to provide the highest quality and relevant service in security incident response and vulnerability management. Because the CVSS score is not enough, which are the relevant metrics ? How to collect them ? Which decision should be made ? How to review efficiency of this process and adapt it ? This talk is about to share insights on a risk-based methodology in vulnerability management using open-source solutions like PatrowlHears. This approach is enabled by a balanced usage of SecOps automation to keep us updated for vulnerabilities, exploits and other threat information, and prioritization using vulnerability metrics, threat topicality and asset criticality. Also, it will be discussed on examples of events that should conduct us to consider vulnerability reprioritization.

An audit tool for accessibility, open-sourced by the French state

Open Source Responsable

The compliance of public and large private companies’ websites has now become mandatory.

These organisations are required by law to publish a declaration of compliance on (all) their websites, i.e. how accessible the website is in relation to the RGAA (the French government’s official guide to improving accessibility).

It should be noted that when 97% of the most frequently visited websites in the world have at least 1 accessibility error, this relates to automated tests. More than 70% of tests against the RGAA can only be performed manually.

So taking account of recommendations for monitoring and/or improving accessibility remains a lengthy and tedious task. Above all when there are very few tools available for this kind of monitoring.

If we want large website groups to be able to conduct regular audits of their websites, the provision of methodologies and open source tools by the state seems to be a prerequisite.

Let’s first take a look at why accessibility helps to improve the overall quality of a website, then let’s examine the large-scale methodology for monitoring the compliance of initiatives put in place by the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Recovery.

We will present Frago (https://github.com/DISIC/frago), a goHugo theme enabling RGAA audit summaries to be generated from simple .csv files

Publish open source software then create a commercial version of it: why and involving what issues

Business Models

In 2015, SMILE decided to add to Magento by filling a yawning gap in this solution in terms of the search engine. Although there were already basic search functionalities within the tool, they did not permit the level of use that web users would expect of a professional e-commerce website, and there was no way for a merchandiser to optimise their performances by promoting customised products. This solution, named Elastic Suite, was published under an open source licence and achieved resounding success, exceeding a million downloads this year, and is incorporated into tens of thousands of websites of all sizes around the world.

However, maintaining such a solution comes at a cost and we needed to find an economic model that ensures the continued existence of the solution. We examined a number of options and performed tests, some of which ended in failure and some in success. The aim of this talk will be to frankly share our lessons learned with you on what led us to offer a commercial version of this open source solution, what issues we encountered and how we finally found our way.

Orchestrate machine learning models with opensource tools

AI / Robotics

Many tutorials exist for creating machine learning models. In most cases, a model is created and then improved either by adding training data or optimizing hyperparameters. But how do you manage the creation and optimization of thousands of models in parallel? How do you make sure that the models and forecasts are up to date? We have built an ecosystem around open source tools to respond to this problem.

Demystifying Event-Driven Architectures with Apache Kafka

Big Data / Data Visualization

Event-Driven Architectures (EDA ) are perceived as mythical objects that instantly transform your systems into “real-time” ones! BUT, come to think of it, aren’t they already “real-time”? I mean, adding an item to the cart is pretty much instant in ( most ) webshops. In fact, EDA solves an entirely different set of problems and with the help of Apache Kafka, we will walk through the (re)evolution path. Microservices are easy to get started with, but once we do, we keep stumbling across the same issues: data access, consistency, and failures ( sounds familiar? ). The solution? Patterns, patterns, patterns … You’ve probably heard about terms such as “Event Notification”, “Event-carried State Transfer”, or even “Event Sourcing”, but how can they be used to solve our problems? And more importantly, how can we use Apache Kafka to take advantage of these patterns? I guess we will find out soon!

Building the Best E-commerce Search with OSS

Full Stack / Web

E-commerce search is often broken: users see irrelevant results or even no results. Commercial e-commerce platforms offer only limited ways to customise search results and the open source search engines available aren’t specialised for e-commerce. Search teams find it hard to measure search quality and lack the tools to fix the issues they know about from customer feedback. How can we fix this problem for the web shops we are increasingly relying on? In this talk we’ll describe Chorus, an open source reference implementation for powerful and accurate e-commerce search. Chorus allows the quality of search results to be measured and improved – without the need to change the core search algorithms, putting tuning tools directly in the hands of customer-facing teams. Chorus tools are already in use at many large e-commerce sites across Europe. Chorus is compatible with leading search engines Apache Solr and Elasticsearch and is maintained by a team of search relevance experts.

The rise of open infrastructure

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

The last 10 years have seen the rise of a new role, distinct from users and developers: the infrastructure provider. Those are the people providing programmable infrastructure for the other roles to consume. Open infrastructure is about providing this new role open source solutions for providing infrastructure at scale. With the success of OpenStack and Kubernetes, open infrastructure is in full rise. Digital sovereignty is one of the concerns that will drive further open infrastructure adoption, especially in Europe. What will the next decade of open infrastructure look like?

What is the value of Open Source? EU Study on the impact of Open Source: results and recommendations

Filière et Souveraineté

OpenForum Europe and Fraunhofer ISI have produced an ambitious study for the European Commission on the impact of Open Source Software and Hardware on technological independence, competitiveness and innovation in the EU. This study will guide EU open source-relevant policy for the coming years, but is relevant for jurisdictions globally. Our research indicates that the economic impact of Open Source on the European economy was between €65 and €95 billion in 2018 and in the same year, EU countries and companies made significant investments into Open Source surpassing €1 billion. The products of these investments are available for reuse to private and public sector and advance development and innovation. Historical data shows clearly that Open Source has contributed immensely to economic growth, but if supported with relevant policies and actions, it could boost the economic landscape even more. For example, if Open Source code contributions increased by 10% annually, the European Union’s GDP would generate additional €70 billion and could boost the number of ICT start-ups by 1,000. In this talk, representatives from Fraunhofer ISI and OpenForum Europe will share in detail the findings from the study on economic impact, case studies, policy analysis and policy recommendations.

Free/open source software in higher education and research, open science, evaluation of research

Open Science

Higher education and research is a major producer of open source software, as demonstrated, for example, by the Gaspard-Monge computer science research laboratory (LIGM), situated to the east of Paris, with more than 80% of its software output distributed under an open source licence. The laboratory sets great store by the visibility of its software, and has proposed, for example, a procedure for distributing software that assists researchers during the distribution stages, or even a template for managing software (PRESOFT template).

More recently, we have addressed the question of the value of this scientific output and, in collaboration with Professor Tomas Recio (Nebrija University, Madrid), we have proposed the CDUR protocol for evaluating research software. It comprises four steps: Citation, Dissemination, Use, Research. It is the Dissemination aspect that examines the conditions for distributing and sharing software and, in particular, the use of FLOSS licences.

The improvement in research evaluation procedures, including taking account of the production of software within researchers’ careers, will provide favourable conditions for its distribution.

On the basis of our experience with open source software for higher education and research, we are proposing a broader definition of open science. We are drawing on work to provide open access to publications and research data to include open access to other scientific output. Open science is thus the political and legal framework within which scientific output is shared and distributed, in order to be rendered visible, accessible and reusable. It also encompasses the changes in evaluation procedures, which help to make scientific output more openly accessible.

6TRON, a technological innovation open source hardware platform for embedded systems

Open Hardware

CATIE, a non-profit association, the aim of which is to stimulate and encourage the adoption of digital technologies by companies openly and freely provides 3 technological innovation platforms, sustained by its research and knowledge transfer projects.
These include the 6TRON platform, which provides hardware and software building blocks designed to accelerate the development of digital objects in the form of open source hardware.
The origin of 6TRON lies in the premise of a deep chasm between the world of “makers”, which advocates sharing and collaborative development, and the world of embedded systems professionals, which often develops its solutions alone.
Those in the first group, which includes many French tech start-ups, develop very fast, but the industrial constraints are disregarded and their projects struggle to get past the modelling stage.
Those in the second group, mainly originating from the electronics sector, successfully complete their projects but could develop much more quickly if they made use of community solutions.
At CATIE, because we believe that rapid modelling and industrial development are not necessarily incompatible, we have taken up the challenge of designing an architecture and an environment where it would be as quick and easy to develop your model as in Arduino or Raspberry Pi, but where the transition to an embedded and industrial object would be completely natural and fluid.
Over the past 4 years, more than 50 projects have made use of 6TRON and its open source hardware to allow companies to develop industrial electronic items, which are mainly produced in France, at a low cost.
At present, with more than 30 building blocks, the 6TRON platform (6tron.io) is continuing to grow and now covers topics such as cybersecurity and embedded AI, which are key for development of the future IoT. In addition to the ARM branch, a branch of the extremely promising RISC-V will be launched in 2021.

Are you familiar with the following Scenario? You’re running your Apache Spark app on EMR, and the log file gets pretty heavy. You try and open it through the AWS UI, or download it straight to your computer. You end up connecting to the server running your driver or any of your executors, relentlessly searching your logs while simultaneously looking at Ganglia and the Spark UI for additional logs and metrics. If you are, this talk is exactly for you. Let me tell you how made it all easy with just some bootstrap actions, some bash scripts, Beats and Elastic. Customizable per app logging, with less searching of big log files and more looking into useful Kibana dashboards. This architecture is not nice to have, it’s essential.

Health Data Hub and open science

Open Science

The Health Data Hub (HDH) is a public interest group put in place by the Law of 24 July 2019 on the organisation and transformation of the French health system. It involves 56 stakeholders, mostly from the public sector and implements the major strategic guidelines relating to the National Health Data System (SNDS). The HDH is a service for the health ecosystem, data controllers, general interest projects and civil society. In this context, the HDH promotes innovation in health and accessibility of data and knowledge. The HDH is involved in an opensource approach and offers free access to information, documentation (notebook, interactive dictionary etc.) and training to facilitate the data reuse. These tools, whose source codes are open in Gitlab and maintained by the HDH team, are also supplied by HDH partners and the community users. This open science approach is essential for the HDH: the project leaders of the pilot projects selected had to justify their willingness to open a part of the knowledge created in their project in order to be selected and to benefit support from the HDH. This knowledge-sharing initiative is a first in France in the field of health and is a success since some resources have been reused and adapted for other purposes by French health institutions. The HDH plans to launch a call to co-fund projects to develop opensource codes to facilitate the data reuse. The HDH also interacts with the health data ecosystem and pursues the ambition to contribute to the diffusion of a health data culture and open science. The HDH organises various events such as regular meetups and data challenges, with a first data challenge held in 2020 (over 400 participants) and whose prizes were awarded to the winning participants who published as opensource the developed algorithms. A new series of data challenges is planned for 2021/2022. Finally, some code of the technological platform related to the project workspace will be made available as opensource code.

SlapOS: 12 years of edge computing and perspectives

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

SlapOS is one of the first edge computing software. Created in 2009, it is the result of joint work between Nexedi and the University of Paris 13. Its network architecture is based on the babel software from the University of Paris 7. It has been deployed at Mitsubishi, Stellantis, SANEF, City of Munich, etc. It is at the core of Teralab, a founding member of Gaia-X, and Rapid.Space, a hyper open cloud provider member of Gaia-X. We present 12 years of experience and the perspectives that edge computing offers or does not offer for the years to come. We describe in particular the challenges we faced in relation to networking and how we solved them with babel routing on an overlay IPv6 network. With massively distributed systems such as edge computing, minor network glitches can turn into major sources of instability due to the exponential growth of split horizon problems. Babel and re6st were key to the solution, Similar ideas could be applied to other edge computing stacks. We discuss the situation of SlapOS in terms of portability, reproducibility, resiliency, hard real time, vRAN and how this compares to other open source edge computing software on the market. Today, SlapOS is for example used inside swarms of drones, 5G base stations and industrial automation. We provide our insights on the evolution of edge and discuss in particular which new technologies (eg. HTML5 service workers) could surpass edge computing with better performance, lower cost or lower CO2 impact.

Open science in the service of people with epilepsy

Open Science

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects 600,000 people in France. Almost a third of these patients are known as “drug-resistant”, which means that they continue to have seizures despite drug treatments. Consequently, they have very few alternatives. These unpredictable seizures are a source of stress and a daily accident risk for patients. Besides, this is a complex disorder and there are more than 80 distinct epilepsies.

Aura is a non-profit association, the aim of which is to improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy. By means of an open science approach, the project brings together a multi-disciplinary community for the purpose of developing a connected thoracic patch enabling epilepsy seizures to be detected and the patient to be warned. For a person with epilepsy, a better understanding of their disorder represents a first step in regaining their independence and everyday peace of mind.

A key component of the device is the design of a customised algorithm for detecting epilepsy seizures. This algorithm is based on statistical methods and makes use of machine learning. In order to overcome this technical challenge, we have put in place an automated processing chain based entirely on an open source stack (Airflow, MLFlow, InfluxDB, Grafana) and a set of dedicated open source libraries for processing the cardiac signal. We will explain how this approach, which is still too marginal in the health sector, guarantees the transparency, reproducibility and robustness of our results, as well as the dissemination of our work among the scientific community.

Web mapping services and PostgreSQL

Big Data / Data Visualization

Today, PostgreSQL/PostGIS is the de facto database solution for all geographic data storage or analysis operations.

The Open Geospatial Consortium is a standardisation body, which publishes standards for the geospatial sector. In recent years, the OGC has worked to revamp its formats and protocols in order for them to be better suited to the reality of the modern internet.

Once the geographic data is in a PostgreSQL/PostGIS database, it is a matter of using it in the form of web mapping services, in order to be able to integrate these services into more complete applications.

This presentation will demonstrate the options offered by a set of GO components making the best use of PostgreSQL/PostGIS to provide OGC web services with increased usability and performance: pg_tileserv and pg_featureserv.

Makina Maps: a Vector Map background Server based on OpenStreetMap

Big Data / Data Visualization

Vector tiles are a cartographic solution where data is served separately from the style and only assembled in the web browser for example. Allowing more fluidity and interaction. Makina Maps is a new solution to produce vector tiles on demand from an OpenStreetMap database while supporting data updates. Makina Maps is a vector tile server built using Docker and based on Imposm, OpenMapTiles, TileServer GL and NGINX. The stack can be easily and quickly set up. The components allow importing OpenStreetMap data into a Postgres database and serving tiles on demand. Caching of tiles is supported. Using Imposm, OpenStreetMap data can be updated and tile caching invalidated. This software stack can be used as a tile server for on-demand requests and support fast updates after many improvements to the OpenMapTiles project. First, it was necessary to speed up the generation of the OpenMapTiles data layers to allow tile generation while users are browsing the map. Secondly, it was necessary to be able to update the database as quickly as OpenStreetMap updates arrive and without locking the database. In addition to building and serving vector tiles, Makina Maps can also serve vector tile styles and is able to produce and serve raster versions of these tiles for legacy applications. There is also the possibility to serve pre-computed tiles stored in MBTiles as raster tiles or for example dynamic terrain shadows.

In the maritime sector, in particular, (pleasure craft or merchant vessels) the more a modern on-board Linux system becomes connected, the greater the number of cyber threats it needs to deal with. The variable quality of the link connecting it to the cloud also makes reliable uploading of data flows from its sensors to land more difficult.

After clarifying the specific constraints of the maritime sector, this presentation will provide details of the architecture put in place for the secure collection of data from several hundred sensors on connected ships, via a variable link.

Using open source to build a sovereign edge cloud for Europe

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

The European Commission has recently identified edge computing as a strategic technology that is going to bring a paradigm shift to the cloud. The idea is based on moving core computational processes and storage to distant locations that are closer to the entities and the data sources they interact with, including end-users and IoT devices. The benefits come from improving network latency and user experience, but also from reducing security risks and energy consumption, minimizing data transfers to central cloud locations, and improving service availability. Telcos and 5G operators are expected to play a key role in Europe’s digital transformation by contributing to democratizing access to edge computing, making it broadly available to EU companies and citizens. On the other hand, non-EU hyperscalers are also starting to quickly position themselves as edge infrastructure providers, trying to consolidate their proprietary platforms as de facto standards in this emerging market. In this talk we will discuss the potential of open source technologies for the EU Telecom Industry, and how it is already being used to explore possible alternatives with open platforms and standards that ensure interoperability and digital sovereignty while preventing vendor lock-ins in Europe’s next generation edge cloud.

F/OSS and digital sovereignty across the EU

Filière et Souveraineté

The issue of sovereignty is now at the heart of the digital debate in Europe. Political actors and commentators are gradually becoming aware of the influence that American “Big Tech” (also known as “GAFAM” or “Hyperscalers”), and soon Chinese, can have on our economy, our democracy, and the daily lives of our fellow citizens. While there is a growing consensus on the risks involved, there is no consensus on how to deal with them. In particular, the alternatives are still little known, if they are not devalued by political decision-makers. While a recovery plan representing several tens of billions of euros in the budgets of European countries is being put in place, we note that the idolatry of foreign technologies is still the norm among European political elites. Blinded by this tropism, they currently seem to be resolved to favour the regulatory or contractual route, while leaving the way open, in the areas of cloud and software, to proprietary technologies that are beyond the control of European players. The network externalities and lock-in inherent in these markets give rise to fears that these choices will gradually become irreversible. Deprived of a strong competence in the development of the fundamental building blocks of cloud and Internet of Things technologies, the ability to innovate and create value in the context of the digital transition risks being lost forever. This roundtable will be an opportunity to compare the views on these issues of several representative European open source actors, both at national and European levels, gathered within APELL and EUCLIDIA.

Data in Motion: a challenge for the modernization of information systems (sponsored talk)

IoT / Embedded / Edge Computing / Smart City / Smart Industry

Whether through Open Data or Open Banking projects or more simply exchange of information between players in the same field of activity (health, insurance, transport, etc.), data mediation is a key topic for all businesses and organizations. The cloud can facilitate these exchanges, but the essential point remains the implementation and control of flows: the data pipelines.
The journey of AAA Data, an association that has become a leading company in automotive data, illustrates how the opening of a “data pool” (datalake) can irrigate an entire sector and help create new services.

DIY Enterprise Search – the open source building blocks for creating an in-house search solution

Business Apps

DIY stands for “do it yourself”. In this session, I will talk about Enterprise Search, an organisation’s in-house search engine, which allows employees to search for documents within their structure. I will present the various technological building blocks and the challenges of assembling them, and check out Datafari Enterprise Search, in particular its capacities and limits in the open source version, in order to know what to expect if that’s where you want to start.

Zero-downtime deployment on Kubernetes

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

Kubernetes allows a lot. After discovering its features, it’s easy to think it can magically transform your application deployment process into a painless no-event. For Hello World applications, that is the case. Unfortunately, not many of us do deploy such applications day-to-day because we need to handle state. Though it would be much easier to have stateless apps, and despite our best efforts in this direction, state is found in (at least) two places: sessions and databases.

You need to think keeping the state while stopping and starting application nodes. In this talk, I’ll demo how to update a Spring Boot app deployed on a Kubernetes cluster with a non-trivial database schema change with the help of Hazelcast, while keeping the service up during the entire update process.

An American in Paris: A View of Digital Sovereignty from this Side of the Pond

Filière et Souveraineté

It is no secret that we live in an ever more divided world – cross-border trade conflicts, growing income inequality, climate change, food insecurity, and wars across geographies threaten humanity ever more daily. It is against this backdrop that we find ourselves at a crossroads in how we will choose to approach collaboration and the protection of our citizens – as we confront these problems, shall we go it alone, or are we truly better together? If we are better together, how will we decide with whom we are together and how we will engage one another? In this talk, Leslie Hawthorn will share her unique perspective on the value of Digital Sovereignty to Europe. Drawing on her own experience as an American born and raised in Silicon Valley, an early employee of a major US hypercaler, an open source advocate throughout her career, an expat living in Europe since 2014, and the mother of a German citizen, she will explore how the global influence of technology providers has brought both promise and peril in how we create and deploy the technical tools that dictate the freedoms enjoyed by the world’s citizens. She will cover considerations of the threats to European values posed by this global influence, and how these threats might be mitigated. She will conclude with an exploration of how Digital Sovereignty might be framed to both protect the citizens of Europe and to ensure Europe’s rise in influence on the world stage from an economic, social, and sustainability perspective.

Lessons learned from building a connected artificial nose using TinyML

IoT / Embedded / Edge Computing / Smart City / Smart Industry

It was a long weekend of May 2020, early during the pandemic, and I started to explore how a simple microcontroller coupled with an off-the-shelf, low-cost, gas sensor could help me figure out when my sourdough starter had reached the perfect level of fermentation. Join this session to hear about my journey from not being able to grasp what a neural network even really was in the first place, to building a complete open source & open hardware DIY artificial nose that unlocks a wide variety of applications, in addition to providing a great framework for introducing developers to AI and TinyML. I will also touch on the intersection of AI and IoT—sometimes referred to as AIoT—and share some best practices to make TinyML applications first-class citizens in IoT scenarios.

How can we attract more women to the open source ecosystem? The scientific viewpoint & specific avenues

Open Source Responsable

One of the questions posed in the conclusion of the 2021 CNLL survey relates to how to attract more women, in particular female developers, to the open source ecosystem.

The aim of this presentation is to provide a scientific viewpoint derived, specifically, from social psychology, and some specific avenues for responding to this ethical question for the benefit of an open and inclusive digital environment.

FinOps: what open source solutions are there to keep your cloud computing costs under control?

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

The FinOps aspect of any cloud computing project is highly structural: deploying and managing your applications’ lifecycle on a public cloud supplier impacts your architectural decisions. Cloud computing, with its pay-as-you-use model, encourages variable workloads and adapting operating time to users’ or application services’ actual use.
Currently, most players in this field, such as Flexera and VMware, are proprietary and dominate the key accounts market. However, the FinOps Foundation, an integral part of the Linux Foundation since 2019, is a key part of this market and has positioned itself as the main community that defines the best practices in financial management in cloud computing.
In this context, how are FinOps practices situated in the open source world? Do comprehensive offers exist? Should you base your FinOps strategy on several open source tools? What about maturity? Is it wise to base your FinOps analysis platform on open source solutions? Doesn’t the very progressive learning curve of FinOps practices within companies encourage using open source solutions in their FinOps processes?
Finally, don’t the best cost optimisations come from raising awareness among all the players involved in cloud management and encouraging them to be active and vigilant?
After a reminder of the main avenues for optimising costs through FinOps practices, participants will be able to identify the right open source solutions that are mature enough to help them advance their current FinOps practices.

A fresh look at toolchains and crosscompilers in 2021

IoT / Embedded / Edge Computing / Smart City / Smart Industry

Up until recently, when you were tasked with creating a toolchain for a new device, it was clear what to do: Build a cross-binutils, build a cross-gcc, build a cross-glibc, rebuild cross-gcc with more options. But this has changed: With the rise of LLVM/Clang, musl and other related projects, many alternative options are available, each with their own advantages and drawbacks. This talk goes over available options and when (not) to use them.

The stakes of managing a large-scale configuration

Cloud / Devops / Infrastructure / Telco

Information systems have evolved greatly in the past ten years. They are increasingly large, hybrid, immutable, elastic and evolving with the involvement of more and more participants.

The stakes and problems of managing the configuration of a fleet of 20,000 servers used 24/7 by a company’s services is no easy task: whenever you make changes to it, you must do so while ensuring continuity of service and security, with areas of responsibility that are shared between many teams—and sometimes historical constraints.

There are no magical solutions to these challenges, but feedback does offer a few possibilities.

Open Source & Diversity

Open Source Responsable

Everyone can see in their Open Source projects the low number of participating women. The problem is not new, it is not unique to Open Source, and yet it seems exacerbated in our projects by a culture that leaves little room for women, contrary to the values of inclusion displayed by the Open Source. Three years after the intervention of Open Heroines at the Paris Open Source Summit, which of the eight proposals presented have “worked”? Should we resign ourselves to an Open Source world where women have only a small place? Our three speakers will share their journey towards their first contributions, before opening a dialogue with the audience.

OSS to the rescue!

IoT / Embedded / Edge Computing / Smart City / Smart Industry

How can a global solution be built using OSS components in a rapidly changing environment?

The main pressure for start-ups is to have a time-to-market that is as short as possible, generally on a tight budget. OSS helps this aim to be achieved in part, by offering reliable and approved products.

However, from a non-purely budgetary perspective, the ecosystem and collaborative aspect allow you to move far more quickly than with a proprietary solution. Involvement in a number of OSS projects enables you to rapidly navigate this ecosystem.

In addition, it’s a two-way street: what we develop can be shared, thereby allowing other users to benefit.

This presentation covers the lessons learned from 2 years spent building a solution based largely on this ecosystem.

To use or not to use big American tech firms for local authorities

Governance & Strategies

Adullact has promoted open source alternatives to local authorities for nearly 20 years. Recently, the association wanted to set up a new service based on Nextcloud for its members, in partnership with the company Arawa. The goal is to allow local authorities to discover an open source solution rather than entrusting their data to well-known alternatives from big American tech firms (Microsoft365, Google Doc, etc.). The idea is not to compete with technology companies that work with open source solutions, but to offer a familiarisation with them to the benefit of the entire open source sector. Pascal Kuczynski, Managing Director of Adullact, and Philippe Hemmel, Chairman of Arawa, will explain the service’s multi-authority operations and approach along with a demonstration.

Unlocking the Digital Markets: EU Platform Regulation, Interoperability and Open Source

Filière et Souveraineté

The EU is determined to regulate the digital sector. The Digital Markets Act, currently under negotiations, is arguably the most ambitious take to increase competition in the digital markets. It aims to update the competition law for digital markets with new rules for large online platforms. For open source stakeholders, the interoperability obligation  is perhaps the most relevant, holding the potential for open, interoperable alternatives to compete on a more level playing field. 

Interoperability obligations are supported by a large number of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), European governments, European tech companies and civil society organisations. From an open source policy perspective, this is a policy debate reminding us of past conflicts such as browser interoperability, open standards, document formats, and net neutrality.

In this talk, OpenForum Europe’s Giulia Guadagnoli will give an overview of the questions currently debated, the different stakeholder positions as well as an outline of why this matters for open source organisations large and small.
