The Apache Way: How the Apache Software Foundation Does Things - Rich Bowen, Executive Vice President at Apache Software Foundation
With 150 projects, and 15 years in operation, The Apache Software Foundation is one of the most important software-producing entities on the planet.  We've gotten there because we have a set of core beliefs about how to do things, and we spend a lot of time teaching it to new projects. This way of doing things is generally referred to as "The Apache Way."

Linux Kernel Report - James Bottomley, CTO of Server Virtualization, Parallels
The Linux kernel is at the core of any Linux system; the performance and capabilities of the kernel will, in the end, place an upper bound on what the system as a whole can do. This talk will review recent events in the kernel development community, discuss the current state of the kernel and the challenges it faces, and look forward to how the kernel may address those challenges. Attendees of any technical ability should gain a better understanding of how the kernel got to its current state and what can be expected in the near future.

Invest for the Future: Our Motivation For The Upstreaming Effort - Hisao Munakata, Executive Manager at Renesas
Now almost 80% of Linux kernel patches are submitted by professional programmer who belongs to the industry. Traditionally Enterprise giant like IBM, Red Hat and Intel played a leadership role in the kernel development and now you can see many embedded semiconductor companies
join the development to make Linux support wider use case. This is very good thing, but can you imagine why major company committed to opensource development so much? Some people seem still wondering the how can we justify the investment for the kernel development as the work result can be shared by anyone who did not spend money. Renesas had been working for upstreaming and now we can say the value of upstreaming is much more than just a social contribution activity. In this keynote, I want to introduce our motivation of upstreaming work and how we utilized the work result to the real business case.
