Cryptography and the Community: Tapping into a New Kind of Crypto Library with Hyperledger Ursa - Marta Piekarska, Hyperledger
Hyperledger Ursa is a modular, flexible cryptography library that is intended for—but not limited to—use by other blockchain projects in Hyperledger. Ursa’s objective is to make it safer and easier for distributed ledger projects to use existing, time tested, and trusted cryptographic libraries as well as new cryptographic library implementations being developed. The main advantage is that blockchain engineers can configure it to only include crypto implementations that meet their application requirements.

Attendees will get an introduction to Ursa and the role of a crypto library in the development of open source blockchain. Marta will speak to current development efforts on Ursa, including plans to support pairing-based signatures, threshold signatures, and aggregate signatures, as well as also zero-knowledge primitives like SNARKs. Attendees will also learn about how to tap into Ursa for their own development projects as well as ways they can contribute to the library.

BoF: Learning How to Learn - How Engineers can Approach Professional Development and IT Trainings - Karin Oey, Snow BV
Working in IT requires lifelong learning. Yesterday everyone was into Docker. Today you definitely need Kubernetes to help your client forward. IT professionals are expected to follow trainings and certify themselves, but even with years of practical experience training and certification can be difficult. Most IT people learn by doing. Learning from a training or book, and often both, can be challenging and is for some a frustrating experience. Fortunately there are ways to learn how to learn. In IT (and even in other areas) these techniques are not yet well-known. Considering how important lifelong learning is and how an inability to study impacts your live, this talk will definitely support the entire IT community. Using scientific evidence organisational psychologist Karin Oey will explain the learning process and demonstrate what effective and ineffective learning strategies are, using several real-life examples.

Lightning Talk: An ARM Based System to Monitor Server Farms Using Grafana - Sumit Lalwani & Shivesh Abhishek, MayaData Inc.
Most of the cloud companies today, including startups, have their on-premise data-centers. It is important that it should be up and running during mission-critical. Our goal is to provide a system or channel for monitoring the server vitals during such missions. In order to achieve so, we had created a system, using Raspberry Pi, that records the server/lab metrics and displays it using grafana in real-time. The metrics mostly include throughput, IOPS, bandwidth, downtime, etc. Grafana is an opensource tool that enables us to plot interactive graphs in time-series format. By leveraging such tool we can also generate intelligent alerts if there is any performance surge happening.

This talk will put light on the need for such systems in every mini/microserver/lab/data-center and a brief explanation of implementation followed by a Q/A.

Lightning Talk: Rose & Thorn in Building an Opensource Culture at Tencent - Dr. Han Xiao, Tencent AI Lab
Despite having numbers of high-quality projects on Github, Tencent is still a newcomer to the OSS community. Since 2018 Tencent has committed to building an open-source culture in the company. This includes learning from the industry standards, encouraging internal and external collaboration and contributing our practices and tools to the world. Despite of being a tech giant in China, embracing opensource is not easy. Legacy codebases, lack of motivation, competition between teams and low-engagement with communities; challenges come along all with way with us.

And yet here we are. Over the last year I work with my colleagues from Tencent OSS team and develop some successful and effective open source programs to improve collaboration on practices, tools inside the company.

SUSI Smart Speaker - A Completely "Personal" Smart Speaker - Sanskar Jethi, FOSSASIA
Until now, the smart speaker market has been dominated by proprietary speakers like Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Apple HomePod, etc. To break this Oligopoly we created the SUSI Smart Speaker which provides complete customisability to the users unlike the proprietary competitors available in the market. And no personal assistant is completely personal until you are able to completely customize it. We have tried to solve this issue by developing our smart speaker.
This talk aims to emphasize the lack of FOSS competitors in the Smart Speaker industry and the oligopoly created by the proprietary organizations. It will also cover how awe have implemented cool features like “region-free” youtube music support, offline functionalities, custom USB media Daemons, open skill languages, etc. Most importantly this new system doesn't track personal data.
The highlight of the talk will be how the SUSI Smart Speaker aims to fill this gap between the Open Source world and the Smart Speaker industries.

Developing and Deploying Microservices with Toro Unikernel - Matias Vara, Huawei
In a cloud-based architecture, microservices are deployed on VMs which are guests that run a General Purpose OS and the microservice runs as a user application. In this context, Toro is a dedicated unikernel for microservices that has several benefits against a General Purpose OS like faster instantiation, reduced memory footprint, and simple disk image management. In Toro, a microservice boots up in 150ms, consumes less than 4 MB of RAM and the image takes about 140 Kb of disk. The same image can then be used to launch VMs in a modern hypervisor like HyperV or KVM, or hosted in a cloud provider like AWS or GCE. This talk illustrates Toro by using as a running example a simple microservice that hosts a static web page. This example allows us to show the benefits of Toro in term of CPU usage, memory usage, and disk usage. Also, we show how easy is to change a network driver or a filesystem thus allowing the tweaking of a microservice depending on the target.
