There are many challenges and limitations for open source, IT industry vendors, and for enterprises in today’s public clouds. Even as cloud computing becomes the predominant IT platform, many of the traditional software and open source models of the past 20 years no longer apply well in a world of cloud services. And, newer approaches such as turning software into SaaS offerings on top of public clouds are not enough to address fundamental customer and ecosystem needs.

This session presents Open Services Cloud, a new open approach for cloud computing to address these challenges, and a new initiative with Linux Foundation to drive this into the industry.

A Novel Way to Efficiently Comply with Licenses - Alexios Zavras, Intel Corporation
A well-known obligation in some Open Source licenses is the requirement to provide "Complete Corresponding Source code" (CCS). The fulfillment of this obligation can be broken down to the distinct steps of collecting, packaging, and provisioning the CCS.
This talk will present the relevant legal obligations in popular licenses and describe the ways these are typically fulfilled. However, the continuous provision of the CCS imposes a burden that may persist for a very long time.
The presenter will describe a novel way of fulfilling the source code distribution requirements by making use of a publicly accessible online repository of source code and present specific workflows that can be used in order to achieve legal compliance.

Pitfalls in Pivoting: How to Make Changes in Your Organization Without Exhausting Everyone - Leslie Hawthorn & Jen Krieger, Red Hat
While change is inevitable, it is also difficult, particularly in larger organizations. As enterprises grapple with an ever increasing rate of technical change, they risk demotivating - and losing - the key employees implementing these necessary changes. Without bringing your talent along in a holistic way, attempts to level-up your business culture and technical stack will fail.

In this talk, you will learn how implementing Agile processes and human-centered change management can combat change fatigue as your company architects and executes its digital transformation strategy. Attendees will leave with concrete steps they can take to ensure that pivots in strategy can be understood, explained, and effectively enacted by their management and technical staff.

The Future of Open Source Sustainability, as Seen Elsewhere - Jose Miguel Parrella, Microsoft
2018 brought us a rich conversation about open source sustainability, licensing, distributed funding models, infrastructure investments, money flows and relationships between providers plus a new take on the "freeloader" problem. Most of this conversation happened in English and over US-centric social media platforms while global contributions on GitHub continue to not only surpass US-based ones but grow faster, while every country in the Top 10 countries by growth of open source repos are developing markets.

In this session, we present different perspectives on this problem from open source leaders in developing markets and other underrepresented voices, leveraging interviews and discussions with different communities in 2019:
  • What is the perception of foundations and codes of conduct outside of the US?
  • Where do global leaders stand in the "open source business model" debate?
  • Is "startup money" seen as a threat to open source sustainability when VCs can't reach you?
  • Can we decouple sustainability of open source from the survival of the maintainer?

FOSSology is a software project that is specialized in identifying license relevant statements. It supports further compliance tasks, such as the identification of copyright statements or the generation of SPDX files. FOSSology is a collaboration project of the Linux Foundation. It is free software licensed under the GPL-2.0; therefore all organisations can download, use and extend FOSSology to their own needs.

Recently, new technology has been introduced for FOSSology, which is going towards more automation by providing a REST API for example. New scanning approaches have been developed which enables more automation at imprecise licensing. This presentation explains how users of FOSSology can use the new features.

Sustaining Jenkins Through the CDF - Tracy Miranda, CloudBees
Jenkins is one of the most widely used and loved open source projects. The mission of the project is to serve developers and help them continuously integrate and deliver their code.

As successful as the project was, as it continued to mature it faced new challenges the community were keen to tackle. Most significantly was how to sustain the community which eventually led to the formation of the Continuous Delivery Foundation.

This talks looks at the origins of the CDF, the specific challenges of managing a mature open source project as well as why and how the Jenkins community made the transition. We also look at the options that were considered but not taken such as a Jenkins Software Foundation. This talk will also cover consideration for a number of aspects including open source governance, security, outreach, managing debt and especially nurturing growth in new markets.

To overcome the challenge of the diversity of Open Source license obligations led to the OSADL Open Source License Obligations Checklists project. It aims (i) to translate obligations into semantic elements and (ii) to establish a common understanding of them.
(i) Creating the checklists
A vocabulary was defined and used to translate about 60 Open Source licenses into checklists with use cases. The compatibilities of the licenses with each other and with typical and individual proprietary licenses were evaluated and can be added to the list, respectively.
(ii) Obtaining approval
Aiming to integrate review by international legal experts, each checklist item is referenced to and highlighted in the related original license text.

The Comcast RDK is a complex Linux software stack powering millions of set-top-boxes. In 2013 the project faced scalability issues with their home grown Linux environment which impacted internal teams and ecosystem partners.

The team engaged with Linaro to migrate the RDK into a Yocto Project based Linux distribution. The revamped RDK has been released into millions of homes throughout the world with many multi-services operators. It started with video devices but layered design has scaled beyond video devices into broadband, cameras, and other IOT devices making an infrastructure for RDK based Home OS.

What’s Your Open Source Strategy? - James Vasile, Open Tech Strategies & Susy Struble, Mozilla
Two years ago, Mozilla’s Open Innovation team took inspiration from a discussion at the OSLS around the need for companies invested in open source to be open by design: to ensure their entire open source approach for a project, from governance to tools, is thoughtfully designed to reach that project’s goals and impact.

To help with this challenge, in summer 2018, Mozilla together with Open Tech Strategies published a research report, a “field guide” into open source strategy and project design. This "Open Source Archetypes Report" identified 10 general types of open communities in their strategic contexts.

This presentation will not only share perspectives to encourage a more systematic approach to open source. It will also provide a sneak preview of the upcoming version two of the report, which takes into account industry feedback we collected in response to the original release.

Sentimine: A cregit Plugin to Analyze the Sentiment Behind the Linux Kernel Code - Isabella Vieira Ferreira, Polytechnique Montréal
Software development is a collaborative activity involving sentiments that can affect developers' productivity, creativity, and contribution satisfaction. Thus, different parts of the source code can be built either positively or negatively. In the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML), the discussions can get excited as different people from distinct cultures and interests are part of it. Besides that, the sentiment can vary across subsystem communities. The more positive discussions a community has, more attractive for contributing this community is. Finally, the patch acceptance or rejection may impact contributors' sentiment and retention. Sentimine is a plugin on top of the cregit platform focused on analyzing the sentiment behind the Linux Kernel code. As a result, project leads and maintainers can improve developers' sentiments, and, consequently, the team retention and satisfaction.

Not Business as Usual: Companies Change their Open Source Consumption Model - Jeffrey Borek, IBM & Nithya Ruff, Comcast
Open source has been a thing for over two decades now, and it's survived a number of growing pains and transitions. It began with individual programmers, who were looking greater freedom and flexibility in lieu of the traditional commercial software industry. Over time major IT vendor companies (IBM, Oracle, others) and then the hyper-scale platform companies (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) joined in. Most recently, enterprise companies have started to 're-think' their relationship to OS software and are leaning in smartly. Join this session to learn more about the "Fourth Wave" of OS evolution, the arrival of 'Open Data Sets' and the CDLA, and what's driving leading companies like Capital One, WalMart, and Comcast to not just consume - but actively contribute to and participate in OS.

Comparing Leadership, Mangement, and Mentorship within Open Source and Inner Source - Charlie Robbins, GoDaddy
Leadership. Management. Mentorship. When considering decentralized OSS projects all of these ideas come into play is a truly unique way. That is because of the nature of OSS itself: self-motivation and self-determination. The individual has considerably more control over their own destiny with respect to what, why, and how they do work as a contributor when compared to "work" inside a more traditional corporate structure. Further there is often a disparity in goals between the create of an OSS project and those who go on to maintain that same project months or years down the road.

This talk will explore the value systems that exist in OSS communities and discuss how they shape the ideas of leadership, management, and mentorship in OSS projects. It will compare these ontologies in several Inner Source & OSS projects and show how they manifest directly into actions or structures within.

The ODPi Egeria project was founded in 2018 with the goal of driving collaboration between vendors, end-users, solution providers, and developers. It provides APIs for communication between metadata management systems and tools that generate or use metadata. Apache Atlas servers as a reference implementation. Going forward ODPi intends to host other open source projects in the big data space to maximize this fruitful collaboration for all players in the ecosystem.

Detect and Remediate Bias in Machines Learning Datasets and Models  - Animesh Singh, IBM
One of the most critical and controversial topics around artificial intelligence centers around bias. As more apps come to market that rely on artificial intelligence, software developers and data scientists can unwittingly inject their personal biases into these solutions. 

Because flaws and biases may not be easy to detect without the right tool, we have launched AI Fairness 360, an open source library to detect and remove bias in models and data sets.

The AI F 360 Python package includes a comprehensive set of metrics for data sets and models to test for biases, explanations for these metrics, and algorithms to mitigate bias. In total, AIF360 has 30 fairness metrics and ten bias mitigation algorithms. 

We will share lessons learnt while using AI Fairness 360 and show how to leverage it to detect and de bias models during pre-processing, in-processing, and post-processing.

When Production is Someone Else's Black Box: Safely Developing OSS for the Enterprise - Isobel Redelmeier, LightStep
You dream of your open source project becoming ubiquitous; something that teams everywhere use and love. Or maybe that dream has already become a reality, and enterprise companies are actually paying for you for your open source work. Congratulations! You've opened an awesome, fun, challenging... can of worms. Welcome to the complex, rewarding world of open source for the enterprise.

In this talk, prepare to learn more about some of the issues that can arise when your team doesn't actually have any control over production. No longer does a simple pipeline from staging to production suffice!

The talk will highlight problems such as benchmarking, version support and upgrade paths, migrations, and API deprecations. You'll learn about how best to tackle these - or at least how not to, thanks to the speaker's chest of war stories.

Shifting Incentives in Open Source Participation - Craig Northway, Qualcomm Technologies
Much as Open Source has changed industries, industry has also changed Open Source. As other technologies and segments embrace and participate in Open Source, we should expect Open Source to continue to evolve. Its evolution will in part be driven by the incentives that exist for organisations to participate.

Being able to purchase or run software and platforms as a service has been a key instigator of recent change in both industry and Open Source. It has enabled deploying and maintaining complex systems and environments to become relatively easy.

This presentation discusses some of the historical incentives around Open Source participation and how they have and have not changed with the rise of cloud technologies. We will also hypothesize on how 3 coming changes will impact Open Source: Machine Learning, Standards and Open Hardware.

Management of OSS in the Enterprise can benefit a lot from collaboration between companies. The TODO Group is a great example. We talk about the newly kicked-off Europ. chapter, its activities, focus topics and how companies can participate. An important area of OSS management is tooling that helps to manage compliance incl. licensing and security. During the recent years, an ever growing set of OSS tools is developed and released by the community to help in this regard. Since more than one year, a group of companies is working together to collaborate in the “OSS Tooling Group” to understand which tools are available for which purpose, how they can interact and how they align and integrate in a generic DevOps scenario.

Building an open source community is not a difficult task: 1. announce your project with a link to GitHub repo 2. Let folks integrate if it piques their interest. However, as your project grows, how do you ensure your community remains accessible.
My talk will address points including:
- How easy is it to join your community?
- Is the project documentation easy to access?
- How do folks, especially those new to the project, communicate with each other? How and where do they ask/answer questions?
And most importantly, is everyone being kind to each other?

I will walk folks through Cloud Foundry community's journey from its inception to today.

Beyond Commit Counts: Better Github Stats through Devstats - Josh Berkus, Red Hat
Average daily commits on your project just went up by 0.75! Should you be excited, depressed, or indifferent? Who knows?

In the world of community stats, especially for GitHub-based communities, there's a lot of focus on reporting raw numbers, but less on turning those numbers in to actionable knowledge. In this presentation, we will go over the open source DevStats platform for GitHub community stats, and discuss how the Kubernetes project uses DevStats to identify problems, verify initiative results, and monitor community health.

We'll also talk about how you can run DevStats for your project, and the current work we're doing to improve community intelligence by creating higher-order metrics. If you have a "GitOps" project, you'll be able to make use of what DevStats offers, and if not, we'll discuss how to move beyond raw numbers in a way that's applicable to any platform.

Panel Discussion: Care and Feeding: Burnout and Self Care in our Community - Stephen Augustus, VMware; Myles Borins, Google; Noah Kantrowitz, Ridecell; Swarna Podila, Cloud Foundry Foundation; and Paris Pittman, Google
Burnout has recently been discussed a lot in both the open source community and broader tech industry, but too often these discussions simply acknowledge that burnout exists. We can do better. The care and feeding of ourselves is a start. How about the care and feeding of our community?

Together we will talk about the symptoms, sources, and (sometimes) solutions that we have used within the Kubernetes community to address burnout.

Whether you are personally struggling, know someone that is, or just want to know more about the difficulties our community faces, please join five of our community leaders in a discussion about burnout.

Open Source Super Power: Accelerating Success Through Strategic Prioritization Techniques - Lauren Britton & Suzanne Ambiel, VMware
Do you know what your project is going to be when it grows up? Each open source project is unique and can range from a simple script to a flagship type of project that drives a whole industry such as Kubernetes. In our talk we will give you the guidelines we have cultivated and implemented to help your company and project leads determine what type of backing your project needs.

It is important to have a framework in place to help make informed decisions on IP, marketing, branding, management, legal, and resourcing. Without this you are liable to make incorrect decisions. Not everything will be a big thing and that’s OK. You can make sure your expectations are inline with your designs for the project and what the community is going to glom to. Our tiering system we designed and implemented minimizes misdirection, missed expectations, and ensure the right resources are invested.

Releasing Open Source from a Large Company - Jessica Marz & Alexios Zavras, Intel Corporation
A large company employing thousands of software developers worldwide faces many challenges to consistently manage its processes for releasing software under open source licenses. Open source knowledge and expertise often varies dramatically across business verticals, as does understanding of how open source communities function. What can a large company do to ensure certain degrees of cohesion and competency are reflected across its diverse open source offerings?
This talk will detail some of our experiences with developing and refining corporate-wide practices that address open source project best known methods and are designed to be transparent, repeatable, and scalable.

Embargo On, Embargo Off - Art Manion, CERT Coordination Center
Linux and a variety of other open source projects make up core components of increasingly complex modern software systems. Bugs in one component transition through supply chains and can affect many downstream nodes in the graph. The security bug (or vulnerability) ecosystem features a process called coordinated vulnerability disclosure. Someone finds a bug, tells a maintainer privately, a fix is developed, some more people are informed, and then the bug and fix are published. The length of time a security bug remains private -- under embargo -- has been the subject of debate for decades. The Linux and open source communities have a particular take on the length of embargoes. The more closed source and commercial communities generally have a different opinion. Safety-critical embedded systems bring yet another set of concerns. How do embargoes affect risk? Can they be optimized?

Establishing an Open Source Program Office - Lee Calcote, SolarWinds
In many companies, open source programs start informally with a group of diligent engineers and a few legal people. The ad-hoc group soon realizes it needs a more formal program to scale to address the litany of important issues and achieve specific business goals. With such an office in place, businesses can establish and execute on their open source strategies in clear terms, giving their leaders, developers, marketers, and other staff the tools they need to make open source a success within their operations. In this talk, we’ll discuss:

• Why create an open source program office.
• The role of the open source program office.
• Open source programs at prominent technology companies.
• How to establish an open source office.

Adopting an open source practice is a vital part of your digital cloud transformation. All members of the organization can and should contribute to open source activities just like all members of the organization contribute to the culture of the organization. The key challenge is to encourage the building of an open source community while managing the day to day goals of the organization.

Within this talk, Ben delivers the first five steps he took to build an open source practice with no budget in an organization that is highly regulated with legacy technology and that has a desire to change.

Open source software grew out of specific aspects of the computer industry, but it’s also tied to how companies and people have collaborated—and innovation has taken place—historically. Research into these topics contains many potential learnings for open source software development.

Gordon Haff—the author of How Open Source Ate Software—will delve into that research. He'll look at how innovation took place through collective invention in the 19th century steel industry and how coopetition among companies arose over time. He’ll discuss communications, modularity, and organizational structure.

The Serverless Landscape and Event Driven Futures - Priyanka Sharma, Gitlab & Dee Kumar, The Linux Foundation
Serverless design patterns have grown in popularity amongst developers and enterprises alike and the ecosystem is exploding. Developers like moving faster by focusing on business logic without worrying about the underlying infrastructure and enterprises appreciate the cost savings. Today, there are umpteen solutions and OSS projects in the market and the space needs some organization to maximize effort. There is a lot of curiosity and confusion around serverless computing: What is it? Who is it for? Is it a replacement for IaaS, PaaS and containers? Does that mean the days of servers are over? CNCF created the Serverless Working Group to explore the intersection of cloud native and serverless technology. The first output of the group was creation of serverless landscape.

REDy for Takeoff? - Sven Loberg & Chad Mott, Accenture
The age of pervasive AI, rapid system evolution, and amazing software-powered digital experiences is upon us. Or so all of the talking heads will tell you ad nauseum.

Two obstacles often stand in the way, the Monolith and Data Prison. Legacy systems can shackle the Enterprise to decades of technical debt and starve AI for lack of data. There is a way out of the mess, and both the technology and method by which to succeed now exist: RED architecture: Reactive, Realtime, Event Driven and Decoupled.

In order to embrace RED and make the promise of Digital Transformation real, companies must embrace open source and cloud native technologies: business events streams provided by technologies like Apache Kafka, functions (provided by technologies like Fission and Kubeless) and many more. We will highlight trends crucial to success using the example of air travel.

Working in Foundation-based vs. Company-led Open Source Projects - Ray Paik, GitLab & Stefano Maffulli, Scality
What are key differences between foundation-based and company-led open source projects? What skills, tools, metrics do community managers need in non-profit and for-profit projects?

Open source projects hosted at foundations typically involve dozens of member companies with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of developers. Company-led open source projects on the other hand, typically involve majority of developers employed by the “host” company with a small number of volunteers from a wider community.

Ray and Stefano will discuss their learnings from managing open source communities both at non-profit foundations and at for-profit companies.

Be Smart, Stay Smart - Open Source for Long-living Products - Urs Gleim, Siemens AG
Big companies coming from the old industry business are moving slowly but steadily towards Open Source which is becoming a more important part of companies strategy every year. Urs Gleim will talk on the journey over the last two decades of Open Source Software usage and re-distribution as part of products up to strategic projects. One of the current strategic projects is the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project which aims to speed implementation of Linux-based civil infrastructure systems such as railway infrastructure, power generation, and power distribution, traffic lights, as well as industrial automation. It builds upon existing open source foundations and expertise, establishes de facto standards by providing a base layer reference implementation, and contribute to and influence upstream projects regarding industrial needs. Furthermore, the talk will cover how to internally disseminate the Open Source efforts and what companies can learn from Open Source governance models.

Issues of Open Source Compliance Check of Modern Programing Languages and Container Images - Gergely Csatari, Nokia
With the spread of modern programing languages and containers, there are more and more external dependencies are built to the software products. Most of these dependencies are open source thanks to the boom of the open source development in the recent decade. A proper check of the added open source dependencies requires a solution to the following problems:
- Identification of the used open source components
- Identification of the license of the open source components
- Collection of the source code of the open source components (even if they are pulled in a binary form)
- Policy based decision framework
- Collection of license texts and source code
In this presentation I will outline an ideal toolchain, I will map the different functionalities to existing open source tools and identify missing features from the pieces of the toolchain.

What’s Brand Got to do with it? Building a Positive Open Source Reputation - Suzanne Ambiel, VMware
Reputation: it’s what’s in the room when you’re not. It’s qualitative and often based on emotion. When it comes to your personal reputation, the levers are pretty easy to identify and pull. But what about a company’s reputation? How do you groom, grow, and measure reputation? And with the vast open source community – where do you start? What strategies and tactics should you consider? If you’re in an Open Source Program office or contributing to your company’s open source community, join me for a lively discussion on what matters, what doesn’t, and why you should care.

Breaking Barriers: Using Open Source to Drive Big Data Accessibility - Todd Mostak, OmniSci
Big Data has become the number one roadblock to organizational insight. Mobile devices, IoT, social media and hundreds of other sources are driving up data volumes 40% annually. If Big Data analytics are to become faster and more efficient, organizations need new solutions. Enter GPU-accelerated analytics. Delivering speed increases of up to 1,000x over CPUs, GPUs are enabling analysts and data scientists to query and visualize massive, multibillion row datasets in milliseconds—far beyond the limits of mainstream analytics tools. GPU-based analytics platforms eliminate the need for laborious data manipulation tasks such as pre-aggregation, downsampling, and pre-indexing.
After this presentation, open source users will be able to implement a solution to assess and interrogate Big Data at speed and scale, without locking into a proprietary approach.

Sell Expertise (Open Source the Rest) - Kendall Miller & Sarah Zelechoski, ReactiveOps
Running a business built on open source tooling is hard. But service has a very human component that tools can't satisfy. Therein lies a business.

Many companies are taking an open source tool and modifying it slightly so they can charge enterprise support rates. At ReactiveOps the product is the expertise of the people.

ReactiveOps relies heavily on existing open source projects (such as Kubernetes), and the things the engineers build on top are open sourced for the community.

In a world dominated by tools, building a team that can deliver expertise on tooling is more important than ever.

This talk will cover the line between tooling and service. And how to build a service company on top of open source tools that still turns heads.

Zephyr: Developing Open Source for Safety and Security - Kate Stewart, Senior Director of Strategic Programs, The Linux Foundation
Open source projects thrive when they can accept great ideas and developers are able to extend the code to “scratch their itch”.  Developing safety critical applications, on the other hand, requires rigorous processes to make sure they won’t fail in critical ways and there’s a high threshold before change is accepted.    Zephyr is designed for devices where Linux is too big to fit, or have long battery life needs.  The project has seen a productive and prolific developer community emerge in the 3 years since its launch,  new products have already hit the market with Zephyr in them and the team is now tackling the challenge of getting open source ready for certifications as well as monitoring for potential security vulnerabilities (and coming up with fixes).  This talk will summarize the current state of Zephyr,  and its progress towards the first LTS release,  as well as the project’s plans for going after Functional Safety certifications in 2019.

When Hyperledger Met Kubernetes - Duncan Johnston-Watt, Blockchain Technology Partners
A hot topic at the Hyperledger Member Summit in Montreal back in October 2018 was the idea of standardizing on Kubernetes as the runtime container orchestration platform of choice for all projects.

This was a recognition of a trend that was already well underway as exemplified by the work of Hyperledger member companies like Monax and Blockchain Technology Partners.

Fast forward to the Hyperledger Global Forum in Basel in December 2018 and there were a number of presentations and workshops focusing on this topic including contributions from Monax and BTP.

Open Source – Innovation and the Paradox of Plenty - Andrew Aitken, Wipro
Today, Open Source drives virtually every technology innovation; from cloud computing to AI. Also, this development model is being applied inside the firewall to drive efficiencies, break down silos & increase innovation. Yet, it faces a challenging future. Today, there is a problem of plenty; plenty of creativity, plenty of new projects, plenty of corporate money, plenty of media attention. What is missing is plenty of developers. For e.g., on Github there are 25M repos and 24M total users. Is the pursuit of innovation paradoxically threatening the future of open source?
We will discuss how open source drives innovation, how that model may be infringed upon by the continuing growth in projects and the fragmentation of interests. We’ll discuss some of the common mistakes made today when trying to create new projects and how to avoid them, and industry, corporate and individual solutions.

Intro to Setting Up an OSS Compliance Program in Your Organization - Indira Bhatt, Independent Consultant & Gwyn Murray, Matau Legal Group
Open Source Software is everywhere and has formed the backbone of the software supply chain. With this firstly, there is a need for organizations to know what OSS is being used (brought in and shipped out) Secondly, organizations need to discover the license and security obligations around its usage. And thirdly, there is a bigger need to define a compliance program that works well within an organization to effectively discover, manage and remediate both licensing and security risks. Indira and Gwyn will review current trends in OSS usage, legal implications, compliance lessons learned from past Tech Due Diligence transactions.

What's Running My Containers? Highlighting Today's Container Standards and the Container Runtime Landscape - Phil Estes, IBM
While much of the talk and excitement around containers have moved to higher layers like Kubernetes and FaaS/serverless, container runtimes are still the driving force that underpins many of these technologies. When applications are deployed to platforms such as Docker, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, and many of today's serverless platforms, it is container runtimes at the bottom of the stack running and managing the lifecycle of these container-packaged applications.

How did we get from the burst of excitement around the open source Docker engine in 2014 to the CNCF landscape of today, featuring a myriad of options for interacting, orchestrating, and building containers?

In this talk, we'll look at the importance of the OCI and the CNCF, including the requisite standards and projects that have kept the container runtime community on the same page and working together even as many competitors as both vendors and implementers.

End-to-end Injection Safety at Scale - Mike Samuel, Google
18 years have passed since Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) became the single most common security problem in web applications. Since then, numerous efforts have been proposed to detect, fix or mitigate it, but these piecemeal efforts have not combined to make it easy to produce XSS-free code.

This talk explains how Google’s security team has achieved a high-level of safety against XSS and related problems by integrating tools to make it easier for developers to easier to produce secure software than vulnerable, and to bound the portion of a codebase that could contribute to a vulnerability.

Mike Samuel will show how this works in practice and end with advice on how to achieve the same results on widely-used, open-source stacks and new browser mechanisms that will make it much easier to achieve high-levels of security with good developer experience.
