Open Source Entrepreneur Network Symposium (Pre-Registration Required)
Everyone uses open source now; that much is a given. It's not so much about whether you use open source, but how do you optimize your usage and contributions. How do you transform your engineering and product management organizations to incorporate open source? How do you clear legal hurdles without putting your company at risk? How do you take advantage of the innovation happening on the upstream platforms while continuing to deliver products on schedule? What is the best way to participate in these upstream communities and ecosystems? And if you sell a product, how do you utilize open source platforms and sell something that can be obtained for free?In this symposium from the Open Source Entrepreneur Network, we will:

+ Discuss the myriad of business models for selling open source-based products and services
+ Investigate potential legal landmines around contributing to and using open source software
+ Look at best practices for incorporating the best of upstream open source innovation into your organization

FOSSology - Hands On Training (Pre-Registration Required)
FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit. As a toolkit, you can run automated license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a Web interface provides you with a compliance workflow. License, copyright and export control scanners are tools used in the workflow. Analyzing open source license compliance requires expert knowledge. Consequently, the use of the tool requires an understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. This hands-on training session will provide this understanding.

The following elements are covered:
1) Challenges in real world examples at license analysis
2) Learning how to cope with license proliferation and custom license texts
3) Efficiently managing large open source components with heterogeneous licensing
4) Saving work with reusing license conclusions of open source packages when analyzing
5) How FOSSology works with the SPDX standard
6) New features in the past year of FOSSology

This course will be valuable to anyone concerned with and involved in Open Source Management, including operational and legal executives, software development managers, open source program managers, and developers. Participants are encouraged to directly work on the given FOSSology software, in the best case on their own notebook computers for using FOSSology after the session as well. Assistance for installation will be provided.

How to Register:
Add FOSSology- Hands On Training to your existing Open Source Summit Europe Registration.

Devicetree Workshop (Pre-Registration Required)
The Devicetree Workshop is a chance for developers using Devicetree and those working on the Devicetree Specification to meet and discuss the changes planned over the next year. Devicetree is a hardware description language used to separate the details of hardware from software runtime implementations. Operating systems and firmware read the Devicetree data structure to get details of the hardware it is running and it's configuration. Planned topics at this year's Devicetree Workshop include tooling for schema validation, format for binding definition files, usage model for Devicetree on microcontroller systems, and review process for changes to the Devicetree Specification document.

Morning Hacking Sprint from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm; Afternoon Discssion Topics from 2:30 - 5:30 pm

Anyone interested in participating in this workshop should refer to the Devicetree Workshop wikipage at http://wiki.linuxplumbersconf.org/2017:device_tree
