The Power of Containers: Open Source and the Docker Ecosystem

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 03/11/2015 - 19:00
Webinar

Live Discussion with Project Managers From Docker and Google!

In early 2013, the PaaS provider dotCloud open sourced its Docker container technology, hoping to bring flexible PaaS-like environments to the enterprise and across clouds. In just under two years, Docker has taken the software development industry by storm, growing to over 700 contributors and the 24th most starred project on GitHub. That popularity has inspired an entire ecosystem of supporting technologies.

Black Duck recognized Docker as a 2013 Open Source Rookie of the Year. In 2014, two of the Rookies of the Year are Docker related projects (Kubernetes and cAdvisor) and two other Docker related projects (Drone and Fig) received honorable mentions.

This webinar will delve into the importance of the Docker ecosystem of tools and projects helping to propel container technology to the forefront of software development innovation.

Don’t miss this live discussion with:

  • Nick Stinemates, the Head of Business Development and Technical Alliances at Docker
  • Brendan Burns, Lead Engineer on the Kubernetes Project at Google
  • Victor Marmol, Senior Software Engineer and cAdvisor Project Manager at Google
  • Brad Rydewski, Co-Founder at Drone.io
  • Dave Gruber, Vice President of Product Development and Product Marketing at Black Duck Software

The Secrets to Establishing an Open Source Foundation

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Tue, 02/24/2015 - 17:30
Webinar

Today, open source projects range from a few developers collaborating on a module of code to thousands of engineers working together on a multi-million line code base (such as the Linux Kernel). While the vast majority of open source project collaboration is supported on a virtual basis solely by forges (like GitHub), an increasing number of projects are supported by standalone legal entities that can provide additional types of legal and other support. Projects benefit from this support, whether they already exist (for example, Apache, Eclipse, or the Linux Foundation), are new standalone legal entities, or are even a combination of both (e.g., incorporated entities supported by another organization). Some of these entities are primarily community supported and funded by donations (like the OpenDocument Foundation), while others are supported by many of the largest IT companies in the world (like OpenStack, AllSeen and OpenDaylight).

In this webinar, Andy Updegrove, corporate legal counsel for the Linux Foundation, and Bill Weinberg, Senior Director of Open Source Strategy at Black Duck Software, will discuss:

  • What resources are available under each of these alternatives
  • Advantages and disadvantages of each
  • How to decide which alternative may be best for a new initiative you may be considering launching
  • How to plan and execute the launch of that new project

You will learn:

  • How to manage your build process to ensure you get the right open source in your final build
  • How automated binary management plays a key role in the process
  • How to track and maintain continuous visibility of your open source utilization

Speakers:
