Combining Open Source with Open Standards - Charles Eckel, Cisco
Open source and open standards are uniting to maximize the pace and relevance of both. Standards organization such as IETF and MEF realize that they need to change their mode of operation in order to continue to produce relevant standards in a timely manner. Open source hackathons aimed at producing reference implementations and tools in parallel to the definition of evolving standards is a key way standards organizations are embracing open source. Come learn more about the IETF Hackathons and MEF LSO Hackathons and how open standards and open source are brought together to the benefit of both communities.

Using Open Source and Open Standards in the Platform Game: War Stories and Lessons Learned - Patrick Chanezon, Docker
Software platforms are a particular case of two-sided markets, where growing the 2 sides of the market at the same time is quite hard, but once established, the network effects accruing to the platform provider provide a solid moat to grow a robust business.
After the meteoric rise the Windows Platform using a proprietary development model in the 90's, in the past 20 years, Open Source and Open Standards proved to be very useful strategic options in the platform game. In this talk I will share my personal experiences in this area about the use of open source and open standards in platforms I have helped create or grow: Sun Portal Server, Google Adwords, OpenSocial, HTML5, Google App Engine, Cloud Foundry, Microsoft Azure, and Docker. I will also cover platforms I have studied, and try to extract some useful lessons and principles that I hope can be useful to other practitioners.

Does Open Source Need SDOs? - Doug Davis, IBM
In the past when it came to standards development traditional standard bodies (SDOs such as ISO and OASIS) led the path through the development of paper standards that would then lead to development efforts to verify the specifications. Today, however, most open source projects are forgoing the SDOs and developing specifications that they then call "standards". What does this mean for SDOs? What about those consumers who demand "official" standards? Is there a path forward? This talk will go into the pros and cons of both worlds and how both have a place going forward.

Panel Discussion: How Open Source is Reshaping Standardization - Thomas Li, Huawei; Pascal Menzes, MEF; David Rudin, Microsoft; Ildikó Váncsa, OpenStack Foundation; Steven Wright, AT&T
Networking and telecommunications technology adoption has been traditionally driven by standardization, which meticulously specified detailed requirements because of the high-cost of productization. Conventional methods prove to be infeasible to standardize software-based functionality, considering the complexity and scope.

This panel discussion addresses why open source will play a vital role in technical standardization in the cloud era. Our panelists consist of experts who are actively participating in SDOs and open source projects, who will reveal how open source is transforming the standardization process to accelerate the entire technology adoption lifecycle.
