Tutorial: Apache Karaf and OSGI Basics - Tom Barber, Meteorite Consulting (Additional Fee)
To those people who are used to monolithic webapps, OSGI bundles can be a daunting prospect, we'll help users wanting to move into an OSGI model by explaining how to get started.

OSGI allows for dynamically pluggable bundles in the Java run time. In this talk we'll look at Apache Karaf, and how to build a few basic OSGI modules that we can deploy into Karaf and demonstrate useful techniques for building OSGI bundles.

We'll discuss the differences between building standard (web) applications and OSGI applications and how to avoid common pitfalls. Learn some tips and tricks from someone who learnt the hard way about development best practice, building, deploying and maintaining your bundles and building features.

Tutorial: Setting Up a Notebook Based Data Science Environment with Flink and Spark Under the Hood - Trevor Grant, Market 6 (Additional Fee)
Data scientists stand to gain much by unleasing the analytical power of state-of-the-art big data packages such as Spark and Flink, however depending on their background these data users may be intimidated by building projects from source and working from the command line.

This tutorial will be a walk through / live demo of installing Flink and Spark, two state-of-the-art analytics packages, in cluster mode, and installing Zeppelin, a web notebook interface for these (and many more) projects. Finally, we will connect Zeppelin to the running clusters of Flink and Spark, run some simple programs, and explore the job managers of the cluster.

Apache Incubator: Possibly the Most Important Project in the Foundation - Roman Shaposhnik, Pivotal Inc.
While IBM is calling Apache Spark "potentially the most significant Open Source project of the next decade" and internet is still running mostly on Apache httpd the most important project in the foundation could very well be Apache Incubator. After all, without Incubator there will be no exciting new projects joining the foundation and turning into the next Spark or Hadoop. This presentation will cover the old school Incubator polices and will point out how they are changing and what new alternatives are now available for podling communities. It will also focus on areas where we are still experimenting with the process, how it relates to the ASF board of directors and how you can help speed things up. Finally, a few battle stories will be shared and wounds put on display. This former VP of Incubator has a few to show.

Messaging for the Cloud with ActiveMQ and Karaf - Hadrian Zbarcea, apifocal & Jamie Goodyear, Savoir Technologies
It has become increasingly clear in the last years that services are moving to the cloud (public, private or hybrid). Like DNS or authentication services, a robust, scalable multi-tenant messaging system is a crucial element of the cloud infrastructure. A messaging system allows services to talk to each other asynchronously, complementing the ubiquitos REST. Due to its dual framework/product nature, Apache ActiveMQ is the most viable and mature solution for messaging at scale. Coupled with other projects like Apache Karaf and its Cellar subproject featuring robust clustering capabilities, the ActiveMQ value is hard to beat. This presentation gives practical guidelines, code and a demo meant to help users deploy and manage elastic networks of brokers.

Flaky Tests and Bugs in Apache Softwares (e.g. Hadoop) - Akihiro Suda, NTT Corp.
Apache softwares are well tested.
Each of them has as many LOC of xUnit test codes as production codes, and the test codes are run frequently on Apache Buildbot.

However, unfortunately these xUnit tests tend to be "flaky". i.e. they can fail non-deterministically.
Even when tests are flaky on Buildbot, it is hard to debug for developers because failure cannot be reproduced by just running tests repeatedly.
So flaky tests can be a very troublesome threat for quality assuarance of Apache softwares.

In this presentation, Akihiro Suda will show the "flakiness" of several Apache softwares (e.g. Hadoop), and discuss why they are so flaky.

Additionally, he will also introduce his open-source debugging tool, named "Earthquake".
This tool can easily reproduce failures of flaky tests by increasing the non-deternimism of the thread scheduling for unmodified xUnit tests.

Building a Containerized Continuous Deployment Pipeline using Apache Mesos, Jenkins and Marathon - Sunil Shah, Mesosphere, Inc.
Apache Mesos is a popular open source cluster resource manager which provides a general abstraction to run tasks on clusters composed of thousands of nodes. Marathon is a Mesos scheduler that provides a robust platform for running containerized microservices at scale.

Continuous deployment is a process whereby applications are automatically built and deployed to a staging environment on each new commit to master. It can also be extended to allow manual or automatic promotion from a staging to a production environment, which allows easy automation and auditing of releases to production.

In this session, we'll introduce and explain the motivation behind the Apache Mesos and Marathon projects and show how you can easily build an open source continuous deployment pipeline using these tools and the popular Jenkins CI software.

Resurrecting FORTH - Niclas Hedhman, Morgan Stanley
In 1980 , BYTE Magazine dedicated an entire issue to the FORTH programming language. It is arguably the simplest and smallest language ever developed, but its postfix notation and alienation with disk operating systems made FORTH fade into the dusty shelves of history.
Today, FORTH has some uses at NASA, but is otherwise only a teaching tool for how a programming language can be built with extremely little CPU resources.
Internet of Things (IoT) are pushing the limits in the small. There are now $1 microcontrollers with WiFi built-in, that has not more memory than a computer from 1980. Of course C is used to program such devices, but FORTH not only allows for as small as, or even smaller, codebase but it gives you a REPL environment, to quickly explore the microcontroller and get rid of compile cycles.
We will look closer at FORTH, and a small IoT application will be demoed as well.

Mesos + Consul = DevOps Happiness - Brian Hicks, Asteris
Microservices change the way we think about distributed applications, and Apache Mesos helps by enabling dynamic scheduling across generic hosts. But… where is everything running? Discovery and monitoring are hard and often result in clunky, hard-to-use interfaces that are bound tightly to one service discovery mechanism. Hashicorp's Consul aims to fix that, and the Mantl project integrates the two of them in a way you hardly have to think about. In this talk, we'll go over what makes Consul so special, and how you can use it in your deployments for more discoverable apps.

Elastic Hadoop Clusters on Mesos with Apache Myriad (incubating) - Mohit Soni & Adam Bordelon, Mesosphere, Inc.
Most datacenters today are statically partitioned into siloed clusters dedicated to run various datacenter-scale applications including web services, databases, and batch/stream processing. This static partitioning model limits overall cluster utilization, decreases flexibility and causes operational challenges. There is an increasing need to integrate Apache Hadoop big data applications with other datacenter services like Apache Spark or Apache Kafka, ideally co-locating the data with the services that need it.

In this talk Adam and Mohit will show off Apache Myriad (incubating), which integrates Apache YARN with Apache Mesos. Mesos enables efficient resource sharing and isolation across a variety of distributed applications. This allows Hadoop workloads to run alongside other datacenter applications while sharing the same cluster resources, and hence breaking silos. Myriad’s multi-tenancy strategy improves overall cluster utilization and operational efficiency, while allowing cluster operators to run multiple isolated YARN clusters on the same hardware.

Polyglot Provisioning with Apache ACE - Jan Willem Janssen & Marcel Offermans, Luminis Technologies
In a world where the Internet of Things is becoming ubiquitous, provisioning software becomes more and more important. Challenges you need to deal with are not only the diversity and multitude of platforms that need to be provisioned but also the actual runtime environment and the sheer number of devices you need to manage. For example, how would you manage your software stack if the server parts run on Docker, your sensor network is running Python and clients run Android?

In this talk, we show how you can leverage Apache ACE to manage such a diverse set of devices and/or platforms. We introduce Apache ACE and go into detail on how it works under the hood and how you can use it to provision any kind of software artifact or configuration. A demonstration is given on how this would work in a concrete situation. For this talk, knowledge of Apache ACE is not a prerequisite.

Introducing Apache Milagro (incubating) - Multi-factor Authentication and Certificate-less TLS for IoT, Mobile Apps, Containers and End Users - Brian Spector, MIRACL
Apache Milagro (Incubating) is a pairing-based cryptographic platform, purpose built for an IoT connected world that brings together multi-factor authentication (MFA), secure communications (TLS), key management, data governance and compliance solutions in one offering.

Apache Milagro (Incubating) works without the need for commercial certificate authorities, putting into place a new category of service providers called Distributed Trust Authorities (D-TA’s) to create a more secure Internet.

This presentation will cover Apache Milagro (Incubating)'s  capabilities. The first half will illustrate how to use Milagro MFA with the Apache Web Server and standard off the shelf modules to secure web applications that are immune to authentication credential theft (i.e., password database breaches) while improving the user experience.

The second half will illustrate how to use Milagro TLS to bring perfect forward secure communication to Docker containers without the need for certificate management or PKI. Milagro TLS, when used with Apache Mesos, enables automated robust security that will enable immediate deployments at Internet scale.In addition to Milagro's capabilities, this presentation will illustrate the motivation for Milagro, the roadmap and its path to graduation.

Last BaaS Standing - David Johnson, Apigee

Paypal shutting down Stackmob in 2014 had developers flocking to Parse. Facebook shutting down Parse in 2016 left developers angry and left their apps serverless, and not in a good way. Lock-in is bad enough, but what happens when you get locked out. 

In this presentation, we will discuss Apache Usergrid, the most scalable and trusted Backend as a Service (BaaS), and the one you should consider for your next app, whether it be mobile, desktop or wearable. First, we'll discuss why an open source is BaaS is the ONLY long term viable solution for developers. Then we'll discuss how Usergrid is architected to give its scalability and graph database properties. Finally, we'll go over real-world use cases and explain how Usergrid is used by major retailers and other organizations.

Composite Oriented Programmiing with Apache Zest - Niclas Hedhman, Morgan Stanley
Domain driven design is hard, and the lack of agile modeling techniques in code, makes it tedious and even error-prone. The paradigm of composite oriented programming allows the team to focus on the models and not the mechanics of making it work.
This presentation will show how Composite Oriented Programming, using Apache Zest, can help developers get a clearer understanding of their own models, reduce the amount of code needed for a given implementation, and avoid boiler plate code. We will go through the basics of Apache Zest, and show how to build a real world Restful API using Apache Zest and Restlet.

Thevast nature of the Web has forced researchers to continually develop advanced data acquisition strategies that overcome a multitude of obstacles in order to acquire relevant topical content and assimilate it with their needs. Many groups have researched focused Web crawling techniques in order to better guide their data acquisition efforts, however few approaches consider the scenario where one wishes to undertake DD on the open Web for which no prior semantic knowledge resources are available. Sujen and his team have investigated and developed a new application of the cosine similarity metric (CSM) which has been implemented as part of a novel strategy for domainspecificDD.

Finagle, linkerd, and Apache Mesos: Twitter-style microservices at scale - Oliver Gould, Buoyant
Finagle (Twitter's Apache-licensed RPC stack) and Apache Mesos are two core technologies used by Twitter to scale its multi-service architecture to high-volume traffic loads. In this talk, we describe how Twitter used Finagle and Mesos together to address the challenges of scaling its application. We introduce linkerd, an Apache-licensed proxy form of Finagle, which extends Finagle's operational model to non-JVM or polyglot multi-service applications. Finally, we show how linkerd can be used to "wrap" applications running in Apache Mesos to provide higher-level, service-based semantics around scalability, reliability, and fault-tolerance for multi-service or microservice applications---even in the presence of high traffic loads and unreliable hardware.

DRAT: An Unobtrusive, Scalable Approach to Large Scale Software License Analysis - Karanjeet Singh, University of Southern California
The Apache Release Audit Tool (RAT) performs software open source license auditing, however RAT fails to successfully audit large code bases. Being a natural language processing tool and a crawler, RAT marches through a code base, but uses rudimentary black lists and white lists to navigate source code repositories, and often does a poor job of identifying source code versus binary files. We introduce Distributed "RAT" (DRAT). DRAT overcomes RAT's limitations by leveraging: (1) Apache Tika to automatically detect and classify files in source code repositories and determine what is a binary file; what is source code; what are notes that need skipping, etc. (2) Apache Solr to interactively perform analytics on a code repository and to extract metadata using Apache Tika; and finally (3) Apache OODT to run RAT on per-MIME type and per configurable K-file sized chunks in a MapReduce workflow.

Using Tika and Spark to Cluster the Crawl Output of Nutch - ThammeGowda Narayanaswamy, University of Southern California
Most users who consume data from the web are concerned with a subset of documents in the crawlers output. Though crawlers like Nutch offer flexible configuration mechanisms to make the crawl focused on interesting pages, it is almost impossible to isolate the less interesting data from the more important information that the crawler should be focused on. In this presentation, Thamme Gowda and Chris Mattmann will describe a useful clustering technique they formulated by combining various similarity measures on DOM structure and CSS styles of web pages including Tree Edit Distance and Jaccard Similarity. The clusters can be thus used for extracting interesting data and applying special analysis based on cluster content. They also showcase an implementation of this technique which is planning to contribute to Apache Tika and shows how this can be scaled to web scale using Spark's MLlib.

Proxying Sensitive TLS Operations in Open Source - Susan Hinrichs & Dave Thompson, Yahoo
The private key is the linchpin to web server authentication. If an attacker gains the private key to yahoo.com, he can set up another server that will authenticate without error as yahoo.com. In a content delivery network, the private key must be distributed to all Edge devices, creating a bigger attack surface. In this presentation, Susan and Dave describe how they augmented Apache Traffic Server using openssl engines to work with a CryptoProxy server hosted in a more secure location. They analyze the costs and benefits and show that not only does a CryptoProxy solution increase security but it also improves performance in many cases. While their solution uses Apache Traffic Server similar techniques could be used for other network servers.

PGP Key Signing: Expanding the Web Of Trust

Why participate in the key signing? Among other things, all Apache releases are PGP-signed; but a key with no signatures attesting to its own authenticity isn't very useful. Bring your key (which you will have emailed to our special address at apachecon-keysigning@apache.org,) and sign. You will need a pen, and some manner of identification.

The "Apache Way" is the process by which Apache Software Foundation projects are managed. It has evolved over many years and has produced over 100 highly successful open source projects. It generally works well! But not always..

In this session, we'll follow on from the theory, and look more on the practice of how it works. We'll look more at cases when it has worked well! And when it has had problems. We'll see more of the boundaries, the things that can be changed, and those that are fixed firm rules. We'll see how businesses can get involved, and where project independence means they need to step back. Licensing, Trademarks, Decisions, Marketing, Infrastructure and more.

JSSE is known to have poor performances compared with OpenSSL additionally ALPN required by HTTP/2 won't be in the JVM before java9. The goal of the new connector is to get ride of the old APR connector and use the NIO or NIO2 one and still have the performances of OpenSSL. Additionally the tc-native can be used in other java web server for example undertow, the presentation will explain how and demo it quickly.

Seamless Upgrades for Credential Security in Apache Tomcat - Christopher Schultz, Total Child Health
Clear-text credentials (user passwords) were never a good idea. Not only are both MD5 and SHA1 now dead, even more modern hashing algorithms aren't appropriate for credential storage in an era of hash-lookup sites. Some recent additions to Apache Tomcat have made it easier to use more secure credential-storage mechanisms along with container-managed security. They can even be used to seamlessly upgrade from older, less-secure algorithms to newer, more secure ones.

We'll investigate the modifications to Tomcat that allow developers and operations staff to use these features, and look at how to actually plug custom credentials-handling mechanisms into an existing Tomcat-based application.

Apache Traffic Server's Huuuuuuuge Performance - Phillip Sorber, Comcast
Virtual Memory (VM) systems allow you to map a virtual memory space onto a, typically smaller, physical memory space. This is usually done with the assistance of a Memory Management Unit (MMU). The MMU breaks the memory space up into units of "pages" and keeps a very small very fast hardware cache (TLB) of the virtual to physical mappings (page table). Traditionally the pages are relatively small (4KiB) compared with today's physical memory sizes (100's of GiB). Because the page cache is so small (10's to 1000's of entries, depending on the architecture), applications with large heap sizes often cause thrashing of this cache. To combat this, most modern processors offer alternate larger pages sizes. They are most commonly referred to as huge pages. This talk will be about the usage of huge pages inside Apache Traffic Server, some real world results, and future direction.

The Key to Becoming a (Well-Rested) App Dev Rockstar - Glynn Bird, IBM
For developers who have tapped into the power of open source technology, a question of reliability has to be front-of-mind. When the database doesn’t run, the business doesn’t run. It’s that simple. Harnessing the power of open source technology without the proper support, guidance and documentation leaves the data layer vulnerable, and developers exposed to sleepless hours of database maintenance. In this presentation, Glynn Bird, IBM Developer Advocate, will discuss how to overcome this challenge with a managed database service that:
  • Gives users increased visibility and control of technology environments
  • Enables users to spend less time obsessing over their database
  • Provides simpler integration between technologies

Why Can't We Be Friends: Do Corporations and FOSS Really Mix? - Lynn Root & Noa Resare, Spotify
Many folks in the community appreciate and contribute to FOSS. But sometimes, your employer may not be on your side. There are a lot of things that we can all agree with respect to what the FOSS community would like to see companies do. From the small things, like being more polite when interacting with volunteers and writing high quality bug reports, to the more expensive and time consuming things like employing maintainers of software you use or donate significant money. However, it requires a lot of work to get your company to move in this direction. You need to have good, solid arguments and employ smart strategies. In this talk, we build on the experiences we have from working with Free Software inside Spotify and recount lessons learned. We also look at other well-publicized examples of organizations engaging with the FOSS community and help provide strong arguments for persuasion.

Apache Traffic Server and the Traffic Control CDN Project - Jan van Doorn, Comcast
In recent years, Apache Traffic Server (ATS) has emerged as the preferred choice for the caching proxy in large scale CDNs. The Traffic Control open source project is a CDN control plane that manages multi tier, large scale CDN configurations based on ATS. Traffic Control not only manages thousands of ATS caches, but it creates a cohesive CDN from them, adding health monitoring, content and location aware client routing and all other CDN functions needed to deliver HTTP content at extreme scale. In this talk we will use real life experiences from large scale operators to describe how Traffic Control can help you run ATS server farms with dozens of petabytes of storage and multiple terabits per second edge output.

The new threat landscape of open-source security - Mark Curphy, SourceClear
Building software using open-source libraries is the new normal but the bad guys are trying to spoil the party having figured out that re-usable code means reusable vulnerabilities. In this presentation we will show you how the threat landscape has changed and how the end-to-end open-source software supply chain is being attacked with actual exploits and real examples. We will show you what hackers are doing and how to protect yourself and your team from these attacks so you can carry on shipping safe and secure open-source projects. We will cover:

Bad security advice from Q & A sites
Malicious code editor plugins
When bad things happen to good build and package managers
Trusting binary repositories like Maven central
Vulnerabilities and backdoors in open-source libraries
Hiding bad things in source code management
Abusing continuous integration systems to mine Bitcoins

The Formation of International Law and the Formation of Open Standards-- What Can We Learn? - Joanna Madej, the Front
Even for those of us who aren't developers or Apache committers, the world is digitizing. As a consequence, while still confined to the relative niche of the technical and open source worlds, open standards are set to become an increasingly mainstream concern. As they govern the world around us, they deserve a "political science" of their own. In her presentation, Joanna Madej will compare the evolution and development of international treaties with the evolution and development of open standards, arguing that principles of international politics and international law can be applied to studying this evolving "international politics" of software.

Failsafe Mechanism for Yahoo homepage using Apache Traffic Server and Storm Crawler - Shu Kit Chan & Pushkar Sachdeva, Yahoo
Yahoo homepage is one of the most popular destinations on the internet. It is crucial to our users for the site to be available all the time. In this presentation, we will talk about the failsafe mechanism in Yahoo homepage to help improve the site availability. It involves using Apache Storm Crawler to crawl the site and send static HTML and assets to 3rd party cloud object storage. Then on the serving side we use Apache Traffic Server as reverse proxy in front of our origin servers and custom ATS plugin is used to catch various problems from the origin server and continue to serve the users with static contents from the cloud object storage. We will talk about the details of this solution with in-depth information on ATS plugin and Storm spouts/bolts. We will also talk about our future plan of using Apache libcloud and jclouds to avoid cloud storage vendor lock-in for this solution.
