1 KICK-OFF,  Christian Paterson Orange, Jean Parpaillon OW2,  Cedric Thomas OW2, OW2

view the speaker's video 

The central theme of OW2con this year is: "Open Source: Toward Industry Maturity". As open source is becoming mainstream, IT developers, vendors, users and even open source organisations such as OW2 have to adapt.
Free software came about in 1983 as a movement launched by and for developers working collaboratively on software projects, it evolved in the mid-1990s as commercial open source and with the explosion of cloud computing, big data, IoT, etc. in 2010, it became the de facto vehicle for collaborative innovation. What the billion-dollar open source mergers announced in 2018 tell us is that open source is reaching industry maturity. Open source projects are becoming increasingly competitive and all IT developers, vendors and users must have an open source strategy.

view the speaker's slides 

Presentation of the open source MELODIC platform developed within H2020 MELODIC project. The platform allows for mulitcloud, cloud provider agnostic
deployment of the application with advanced optimization capabilities.
MELODIC is integrated with AWS, Azure, GCP and Open Stack based cloud providers and supports Virtual Machines, Containers, Big Data Frameworks (Spark) and serverless components. Due to highly advanced optimization capabilities using both deterministic (Constraint Programming Solver) and reinforcement learning methods (Learning Automata Solver) MELODIC is able to solve complex optimization problems. Using sophisticated utility based approach is possible to find the best deployment and automaticaly deploy all components. Thanks to built in mulit layer metrics gathering system based on ESPER MELODIC is able to monitor applications and theirs metrics. In case of the violation of the metric value MELODIC automatically reconfigures applications looking for better deployment configuration. The above capabilities sets new standard for multicloud optimization and deployment.
Comparing to container based schedulers like Kuberenets MELODIC allows for multi type components deployment (Vms, Big Data, containers, serverless) and dynamically adding and removing cloud resources, based on the current needs of application.

11 FusionDirectory at Campus Condorcet : Give access to services and allow the user to control its identity, Mortier Benoit, OpenSides

view the speaker's video 

For once, this presentation  will not be technical but is placed at user level, process and use case for a variety of different populations.

Campus Condorcet, future campus of social sciences, will receive very different user populations and therefore will need transparent processes that can accommodate these populations in a transparent manner and respectful of the GDPR.

The challenge was to allow registration campaigns conducted by reference persons in institutions in a flexible and fast manner.

Then, it should also allow other audiences to obtain accounts for access to very large documentary equipment and other services that will appear throughout these years.

This conference will show how free software has made it possible to implement this IAM solution in a record time, create reusable processes while leaving ease and security at the heart of the system.

12 How CLIF saved the benchmarking campaign of Orange's new domestic IoT service "Maison Connectée", Bruno Dillenseger, Orange

view the speaker's video 

view the speaker's slides 

In April 2019, Orange opened their new domestic IoT service "Maison Connectée". Orange subscribers with a compatible Livebox just have to download the application and buy some DECT-ULE connected devices. Then, possibly almost 3 millions homes may open a permanent network connection to the service platform, which is a technical challenge... also for the benchmarking campaign!
We found that CLIF was the only performance testing software able to massively generate network connections and traffic, thanks to its distributed traffic generation support and its ability to run an arbitrary number of virtual users on each traffic generator.
This talk will show how we used and contributed to CLIF to support up to 60 thousands simultaneous MQTT connections per traffic generator, with one virtual user emulating the traffic of a Livebox with its associated connected devices. We also explain how we used the same CLIF scenarios to perform integration tests and live Quality of Experience monitoring.

18 Functional testing with Docker and TestContainers, Vincent Massol, XWiki SAS

view the speaker's video 

As a developer, it really helps being able to debug on one's own machine a problem that happened in production, in a given configuration of the software! This is what the TestContainers framework allows doing. It lets you drive Docker directly from within your unit tests and thus to have a very efficient mechanism to run your functional tests in a given environment.

This session will present TestContainers, applied to a real use case (XWiki), with a demonstration of how to use it for writing tests involving a database, a Servlet engine and more. What will be shown: JUnit5 integration, creating a custom Docker image right from within your unit tests, automatic recording of videos of running tests and integration with a Jenkins pipeline to iterate over all the configurations to test.

19 FaSilET² : Full end-to-end testing solution, Cédric Pellerin, Silicom

view the speaker's video 

view the speaker's slides 

FaSilET² is an Open Source really end to end testing solution. End to end means it can input data on a UI, check that the UI is modified according to certain rules and also check that the data modification led to a database field modification, a new line in a log file, a mail sent, and so on.
This solution is based on Perl scripts with a high abstraction level, thanks to Perl modules, so almost every developper or tester can write testing scripts.
Another key point is that FaSilET² can check the whole project, including logs, mails, databases, etc. All tests are made in real-life situation without modifying anything on servers. Only SSH access is required.

FaSilET² uses "actuators" to simulate users input and checking results on UI and "validators" to check logs, databases, etc. on local or remote servers.

FaSilET² uses LXC containers to start validators in parallel of actuators scripts so they don't interfer.

Some metrology modules can also be used to check CPU, RAM, disk space, etc. on servers while running tests.

20 Configurations: Do you prove yours ?, Alexandre BRIANCEAU, RUDDER

view the speaker's video 

view the speaker's slides 

How can we be sure of the continuous configuration management proper operation? How to expose factual topic-related reports to dev, sec, managers, customers...?

We believe that, in order to deliver the full business and collaboration value of continuous configuration management, the solution needs to go further than simply applying policies - it must ensure configuration reliability; prove historized application and status; share it to other teams; notify of any drift with a relevant context.

This talk will present why and how we should be concerned about transmitting factual measures on infrastructure management to all parties involved. We will also guide you through the journey to include a full-fledged reporting feature in a configuration management solution.

view the speaker's slides 

Throughout history technology has influenced society. Reading, writing, arithmetic, agriculture, printing and radio are all examples of developments that changed the way we interact through trade, art and science. The most important cultural technology of the 21st century is software. It runs our workplaces, laptops, mobile phones as well as less obvious places like trains, cars, televisions, washing-machines, fridges, and many other devices. Today it depends on software how the government can implement laws, who will be able to join which university or job, or if and how long people might end up in jail.  As people and companies who create software, we should consider how our actions influence the distribution of power in our society — and thereby our democracy.

34 DEvOps for trusted, portable and interoperable Multi-Cloud applications towards the Digital singlE market — DECIDE, Kyriakos Stefanidis, Fraunhofer FOKUS

view the speaker's video 

view the speaker's slides 

DECIDE provides a new generation of multi-cloud service-based software framework, enabling techniques and mechanisms to design, develop, and dynamically deploy multi-cloud aware applications in an ecosystem of reliable, interoperable, and legal compliant cloud services.
DECIDE provides a set of architectural patterns and the needed tools to develop and operate (following the DevOps approach) multi-cloud aware applications that can be dynamically self-adapt or be re-deployed using different cloud services. Furthermore, DECIDE also sets up an ecosystem of trusted, interoperable and legally compliant cloud services (ACSmI-Advanced Cloud Service meta-Intermediator) and the required mechanisms to register, discover, compose, use and assess them.

The ARCITECT design-pattern selection tool, the OPTIMUS deployment simulation tool and the continuous deployment support tool (DECIDE ADAPT), go beyond the state-of-the-art in several ways. On one hand, they provide the most adequate deployment application topology based on a set of users’ requirements. On the other hand, they automate the provisioning and the deployment for multi-cloud applications based on the modelling of cloud resources at multiple cloud layers (IaaS, PaaS), multiple cloud nodes and of multiple cloud providers both at design-time and run-time.
Multi-cloud applications in DECIDE refer to applications that dynamically can distribute their components over heterogeneous cloud resources and still hold the functional, business and non-functional properties declared in their SLAs. Service based software deployed on multiple cloud providers require means to discover, aggregate (compose), and consume cloud services, functionalities provided by the DECIDE ACSmI (Advanced Cloud Service meta-Intermediator).

36 How to MEASURE the Enterprise Architecture models quality with the MEASURE Platform, the H2020 Databio Project success story , Alessandra Bagnato, Softeam

view the speaker's video 

view the speaker's slides 

Softeam is specialized in modelling technologies through its modelling software “Modelio”. It includes methods and languages of designing software, systems and enterprise architecture according to well-known standards such as UML, BPMN, ArchiMate, etc. Softeam has been working on providing ArchiMate models for the DataBio project that can help understanding, communicating and collaborating between the partners.  

The DataBio ArchiMate models cover the agriculture, forestry, fishery pilots and the technologies included in this project. The works on these models has started since the beginning of the project and the generated diagrams have been included in most of the deliverables.  

Due to the importance of having these kinds of models for understanding the architecture of such big project, Softeam has been working on developing “ArchiMate Metrics” that guarantee good quality for the models. For this end, Softeam is using a “Measure Platform” to monitor all “ArchiMate” Modelio repositories used by all models contributors. “Measure Platform” was developed during the “Measure” project (http://measure.softeam-rd.eu/) and is basically a web app used for collecting measures and monitoring the quality of projects.  
The presentation will show how  Archimate MEASURE metrics applied have been applied to Databio pilots as new metrics within the ITEA 3 project MEASURE platform. Through the newly developed metrics it is possible to analyze ArchiMate models in order to evaluate the value of the business architectures through time with MEASURE visualization dashboards. Future work will also be presented on  new ideas on possible metrics based on ArchiMate models in order to obtain possible predictive analysis (e.g. too many isolated elements and elements of not high importance could lead to a model with inferior enterprise architecture value).  
A set of pre-defined complex measures to select from when creating a measure instance are already available open source on GitHub at https://github.com/ITEA3-Measure/Measures/tree/master/predefined-archimate-metrics)))

Today, pretty much all companies have embraced open source. But while they’re all keen to use open source, at lot fewer actually contribute to it.

And yet, there’s real value in doing so. Companies use their contribution to open source to boost recruiting (Facebook claims 75% of their new engineering recruit mention Facebook’s open source program as a key reason they accepted their offer), increase their market, build a moat around their business, or position themselves as leaders in their field.

In this talk, we’ll look at the different ways contributing to open source can benefit a business and become a competitive advantage. We’ll look at the open source strategies of different companies, big and small, and provide you with the knowledge to start building a business case for open source in your own company.

41 The end of Open Source ? What's going on between VC Backed Open Source companies and Cloud providers ?, Ludovic Dubost, XWiki SAS

view the speaker's video 

view the speaker's slides 

In this last year, we have seen an ongoing debate and flame wars about new Open Source licences, with Open Source VC backed companies changing their licences (Redis, MongoDB) and sometimes technical and business approach (Elastic Search) in a quite directed attack against large Cloud providers (AWS).

On one side, Open Source Companies state that their effort is being taken by the big cloud providers without giving back to the community. On the other side, the cloud providers and other actors are claiming the new approaches of the Open Source companies are not fully Open Source.

What's going on ?
What are the facts being the FUD of either side ?
What is at stake in this debate ?
Is this the end of Open Source and Free Software ?
What does this mean for launching new Open Source and Free Software businesses ?
Does this change how Open Source users and contributors should behave ?
If VC backed funding is not possible any more for "pure open source" are there alternatives ?

This presentation will show the view of an Open Source small business entrepreneur building an Open Source business for the last 15 years.

Profoundly influenced by the research communities, Open Data has originally been developed as an extension of Open Source culture. Both are consequences of the digital transformation and are based on similar values : openness, transparency and collaboration. However, the Open Data movement emancipated itself from Open Source as the economical and politic dimensions increased. Both movements as specificites even if the share a lot of similarities regarding development model and valorization, and have to address the same issues concerning licenses and sustainability projects. This talk will identify and analyse some links between these movements in order to sustain Open Innovation models.
