His achievements were rewarded in 2009 with the Federal Cross of Merit on Ribbon by the German government. Today Georg Greve is living with his wife and two sons near Zurich, Switzerland.

Living in the Free Software Society

Open Source is central for innovation, democracy, security and many other aspects that are becoming more essential as the digital society is taking shape. For all these reasons it is winning, and betting against it is increasingly becoming a losing bet. The only question is: Where will be your place in all of this? How do you transition, and deal with the complexities that arise? Georg Greve has spent the past 20 years in Free Software and is one of the world’s leading experts. He was founding president of the Free Software Foundation Europe, has consulted the European Commission, Google and World Bank, and is now the CEO of Kolab Systems, the company behind Kolab, the world’s most secure and open collaboration solution.

Kolab: Do it right, or don’t do it at all

The Kolab Groupware Solution was initially developed 2002 for the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) where it is used until today. Its design principles included including the most radical Open Source and Open Standards approach in the industry in combination with the strongest security principles. Learn why large users including the city of Munich have chosen Kolab and what are the benefits these organisations get from its modular architecture and the options for deployment, especially how it excels in complex environments including Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, and why the city of Munich has chosen Kolab. The CEO of Kolab Systems, Georg Greve, will introduce you to one of the only fully Free Software companies in this area, and share some anecdotes from launching MyKolab.com which larger events turned into the world’s leading privacy haven with built-in escape hatch.

Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph

Elizabeth Krumbach JosephElizabeth Krumbach Joseph is an Automation and Tools Engineer at HP working on the OpenStack Infrastructure team. She is also a member of the Ubuntu Community Council and on the Board of Directors for Partimus.org, a non-profit in the United States providing Linux-based computers to schools in need.

Elizabeth will have keynote:

Continuous Integration system for OpenStack developers

The OpenStack project is one of the biggest and fastest growing Open Source projects in the world, and its project integration testing and gating infrastructure is key to the project’s success. Every change, after passing peer-based code review, is automatically tested and merged only if it passes the test suite. This talk will give an overview of this fully Open Source infrastructure, which runs on public OpenStack clouds with running Linux.

Miklos Vajna

Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph Involved with OpenOffice.org since 2006 where I started as a packager for Frugalware Linux. Then I completed two Google Summer of Code projects to improve the RTF import/export filter of Writer. Hacking on LibreOffice Writer for Collabora.

LibreOffice — what we fixed in 4.2/4.3

Since LibreOffice 4.1 was released in July 2013, we released 4.2 and at the time of the conference, 4.3 will be also branched off.  The talk attempts to give you a brief overview on what changes these two major releases bring to developers and users. Upcoming future plans: the recently completed Calc core rework, our currently developed prototypes, like our mobile app on Android will be also presented. Come and see how TDF is growing and the exciting new features and  interoperability improvements it helps to provide, while working in parallel to make also the life of developers easier: reworking and cleaning up under the hood, inventing more techniques to increase test coverage and more. The talk will also cover how a new contributor can become part of our community: how we successfully managed to lower the entry barrier enough so that volunteers are no longer afraid of contributing changes to our large codebase.

Dave Whiteland

Dave WhitelandDave joined mySociety as a developer, and is now also part of the international team, travelling widely to meet organisations and help them set up websites using our code.

He has cut code across a range of our projects, including FixMyStreet, ePetitions, and PledgeBank.

His recent travels have seen him help to set up an SMS-based version of FixMyStreet in the Philippines; he’s also been involved in the formation of the Poplus initiative in Chile, and travelled on mySociety business to Malaysia, Myanmar and South Africa… among many other places.

Sharing Things That Work
or “hey I just had somebody else’s really good idea”

UK civic coding charity mySociety’s international team is actively engaged in encouraging civic coders to avoid re-inventing solutions to problems that someone, somewhere has already solved. Most recently this means making a collaborative effort to make useful components rather than whole websites. But there’s more to sharing than just saving developers’ typing time: is it possible to pass on some of the learned experience too? Dave will look at a few of the more subtle aspects of mySociety’s successful projects (and perhaps some less successful ones) to point out there are things going on in there that are easy to miss, fun to know, and useful to share.

Harald Welte

Harald WelteA programmer resident in Berlin, Germany. Within the free software community, Welte is well known as a hacker of the Linux kernel and for his activities in enforcing the GNU General Public License (GPL), the license that governs the use of much of free software.

Welte is also involved in a number of free software projects, such as Openmoko, (a version of Linux for completely open, low-cost, high-volume phones) and the netfilter/iptables project (the core firewall mechanism in Linux-based firewall computers and routing devices). He is an active member of the Chaos Computer Club.

Osmocom.org – Open Source Mobile Communications

The Osmocom community has established itself as a small group of developers dedicated to bring more Free Software into the world of mobile communications infrastructure. Some key projects include the OpenBSC project, enabling you to run a private GSM network with voice calls, SMS and GPRS data services. The OsmocomBB project implements a telephone-side GSM protocol stack for a specific family of feature phones. Maany other sub-projects exist within osmocom, covering technolgies like TETRA, DECT, Thuraya satellite telephony, SDR, SIM cards and many other aspects. The talk will give an overview of the various projects and their status.

OpenBSC – running your own GSM network

Traditionally, operating a cellular telephone network required mainframe-sized racks of equipment costing hundreds of thousands of Euros. Very few entities outside the elite circle of mobile operators were able to afford this. As a result, we had few GSM networks available for teaching at universities, for academic as well as private research, and also for the IT security community. This changed in late 2009, when the first humble attempts of what is now known as OpenBSC started and was first demonstrated at the Chaos Communications Congress.

The talk will illustrate the progress made since, and how you can use OpenBSC to run your own GSM network.
