FOSS Compliance Intensive Seminar June 14-15th, 2018 in Berlin (in German)

Catharina Maracke’s Software Compliance Academy writes to us:

Die Bedeutung der Open Source-Lizenzen und die Frage der Open Source Compliance hat in den vergangenen Jahren vor allem in der IT-Wirtschaft an Bedeutung gewonnen. Aber auch andere Industriezweige sehen sich zunehmend mit Fragen rund um den Einsatz von Open Source-Software konfrontiert:

  • Welche juristischen Vorgaben gilt es beim Einsatz von Open Source-Software im Unternehmen und vor allem in kommerziellen Produkten zu beachten?
  • Welche Anforderungen sind an das Lizenzmanagement zu stellen und welchen Beitrag kann ein standardisierter Lizenzmanagement Prozess (OpenChain) leisten?
  • Welche Möglichkeiten (und welche Grenzen) bieten technische Ansätze im Bereich Lizenzmanagement?

Sofern diese Fragen auch für Sie oder Ihre Kooperationspartner bzw. Ihr Netzwerk von Interesse sind, möchte ich Sie gerne auf unser kommendes zweitägiges Open Source Compliance Seminar in Berlin am 14. und 15. Juni 2018 hinweisen. Neben den Referenten der Software Compliance Academy wird auch Shane Coughlan, Leiter des OpenChain Projektes bei der Linux Foundation, einen Teil des Seminars übernehmen und die aktuellen Entwicklungen des OpenChain Projektes vorstellen.

Call for Papers: 1st Workshop on Innovative Software Engineering Education (ISEE 2018)

http://www1.in.tum.de/isee2018

In conjunction with the Software Engineering Conference 2018 in Ulm, March 6, 2018

Motivation

The number of students continuously increases and presents ever greater challenges for instructors in software engineering. In courses with a huge number of students, it is particularly difficult to motivate students to actively participate. At the same time, practice-oriented and project-related training is becoming increasingly important, but project courses in cooperation with industry are often associated with high costs.

Digital teaching, online courses and new teaching concepts complement the curriculum. They offer a wide range of possibilities for modern and attractive teaching, but pose methodical, technical and organizational challenges for instructors.

Call for Papers: 3rd Workshop on Continuous Software Engineering (CSE 2018)

http://cse2018.swc-rwth.de/

In conjunction with Software Engineering 2018

Ulm, March 6, 2018

Scope of the workshop

In order to develop and deliver high-quality products to their customers, software companies have to adopt state-of-the-art software development processes. To face this challenge, companies are applying innovative methods, approaches and techniques like agile methods, DevOps, Continuous Delivery, test automation, infrastructure as code or container-based virtualization.

Register now for Forum Open Source 2017

On June 20th, the the 2017 Bitkom Open Source Forum will take place in Berlin. In my opinion, this is the best vendor-neutral opportunity in Germany to meet and listen to open source experts and how open source is shaping the German and international software industry. I will present my main blockbuster talk on

why software vendors, large and small, “give away their intellectual property” by contributing to an open source project.

Essentially, I will be talking about the business models and industry strategies underlying contribution to and leadership of open source projects, platforms, and foundations. Participation is free, even for non-members, and I recommend you register early (by email) to make sure you get a seat at the table.

Open Source Collaboration—the other Open Source Innovation (in German)

Below, please find a blog post in preparation of the BITKOM OSS Forum in July 2016.


Open-Source-Software ist zu einem wichtigen Bestandteil von Softwareprodukten geworden. Es gibt praktisch keine Software mehr, die nicht auch auf Open Source aufbaut. Unternehmen, welche Open-Source-Software in ihren Produkten verwenden, machen sich meist Sorgen um die rechtlichen Konsequenzen, welche Open-Source-Lizenzen mit sich bringen. Entsprechend haben Unternehmen Open-Source-Governance und -Compliance Prozesse aufgesetzt, um diese Herausforderungen in den Griff zu bekommen. Am 02.06.16 werde ich für den ASQF in Berlin eine Einführung in gute Open-Source-Governance geben.

Call for Papers: OpenSym 2016, the 12th International Symposium on Open Collaboration

OpenSym 2016, the 12th International Symposium on Open Collaboration

August 17-19, 2016 | Berlin, Germany

http://opensym.org/os2016

About the Conference

The 12th International Symposium on Open Collaboration (OpenSym 2016) is the premier conference on open collaboration research and practice, including open source, open data, open education, wikis and related social media, Wikipedia, and IT-driven open innovation research.

OpenSym is the first conference series to bring together the different strands of open collaboration research and practice, seeking to create synergies and inspire new collaborations between computer scientists, social scientists, legal scholars, and everyone interested in understanding open collaboration and how it is changing the world.

OpenSym 2016 will be held in Berlin, Germany, on August 17-19, 2016.

Call for Papers: The 12th International Conference on Open Source Systems (OSS 2016)

The 12th International Conference on Open Source Systems

Gothenburg, Sweden, 30 May – 02 June 2016

Scope of OSS 2016

Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) has had a disruptive effect on the software industry and the ways that organizations and individuals create, distribute, acquire and use software and software-based services. The FLOSS movement has created new kinds of opportunities such as the emergence of new business models, knowledge exchange mechanisms, and collective development approaches. On the other hand, the movement has introduced new kinds of challenges, especially as different problem domains embrace openness as a pervasive problem solving strategy. FLOSS can be complex yet widespread and often cross-cultural. Consequently, they require an interdisciplinary understanding of their technical, economic, legal and socio-cultural dynamics.

Call for Papers: Continuous Software Engineering 2016 (Workshop at SE 2016)

In order to develop and deliver high-quality products to their customers, software companies have to adopt state-of-the-art software development processes. To face this challenge, companies are applying innovative methods, approaches and techniques like agile methods, DevOps, Continuous Delivery, test automation, infrastructure as code or container-based virtualization. These new approaches have a high impact on the specification, design, development, maintenance, operation and the evolution of software systems. Therefore, common software engineering activities, organizational forms and processes have to be questioned, adapted and extended to ensure continuous and unobstructed soft-ware development (Continuous Software Engineering). So far, there is a lack of systematic approaches to face these challenges. The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss innovative solutions, ideas and experiences in the area of Continuous Software Engineering (CSE).
