Drones, IoT, Containers and Cloud: CollabSummit 2015

Our schedule for The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is out and I’m proud of the speakers and projects we have assembled. I use CollabSummit and its unique structure as a litmus test for The Linux Foundation’s progress. When we started CollabSummit in 2007, we gathered about 200 people at the GooglePlex and brought Linux kernel developers, ecosystem executives, open source legal experts and more together for the first time. Convincing the world that open source was safe was a dominant theme on the agenda, as was better collaboration between business and the open source developers shaping Linux.

Join Us at Vault: The Linux Storage and Filesystem Conference

We’re currently accepting submissions for Vault, The Linux Foundation’s Linux storage and filesystem conference, happening this March 11 and 12 in Boston, MA. The call for proposals will remain open until December 1. Submit a session proposal and register to get your space.   Why have a conference about Linux storage and filesystems? Over the last few years we have had enormous demand for conference education on Linux storage and file systems. As data has exploded so has the need for filesystem and storage innovation. And as the cloud, Internet and most data intensive workloads have moved to Linux, so has the need for a dedicated conference.  We created Vault to bring together the leading developers in file systems and storage in the Linux kernel with related projects to forge a path to continued innovation and education. By being co-located with the invite-only and exclusive Linux File...

Announcing Dronecode: Expanding the Architecture of Participation for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

A few months ago, I met Chris Anderson and Andy Jensen, CEO and COO of 3D Robotics, one of the leading manufacturers of commercial drones. They were interested in creating a software foundation for their open source drone projects and wanted to pattern it after the Linux Foundation. We quickly realized we could provide the collaborative and participatory infrastructure needed to advance the ecosystem, and Dronecode was born. The potential for drones to have an impact on our lives is just now hitting the mainstream. While makers and hobbyists have been in from the ground floor, applications such as search and rescue, agriculture, mapping and surveying, photography and film and ecological study have real potential to save lives, save money and improve efficiency. Chris was on the forefront of this movement with his bestselling book Makers: The New Industrial Revolution and his creation of Today we launch Dronecode with industry leaders who are shaping the coming Drone revolution. Joining 3D Robotics as founding members of Dronecode are BaiDu, Box, DroneDeploy, Intel, jDrones, Laser Navigation, Qualcomm, SkyWard, Squadrone System, Walkera and Yuneec. The Dronecode story is very unique, with three impressive elements: Today more than 1,200 developers are working on Dronecode projects with more than 150 code commits a day on some projects. The code forms the basis of many of the...

Resources for Women and Newcomers at LinuxCon

For many years, Linux Foundation research has pointed out that companies have a hard time finding enough skilled applicants for their Linux-related technical positions, especially in development. At The Linux Foundation, we have created a number of programs to address this: from Linux technical training to a free Linux MOOC to a training scholarship program to inclusivity programs at our LinuxCon and Cloud events. If there is a shortage of skilled applicants, we want to invite everyone to join the party.
