Data Analytics in investigative news stories
Investigative reporting has always remained an eye opener for masses. But sting operations are no more the ultimate weapon for investigative journalism. With the growing avenues of data journalism, data analysis is now the new weapon that allows the journalist to go beyond simple anecdote and gather evidence against corruption.
This paper will focus on how data analytics have employed to do investigative journalism. The paper attempt to analyse on how to analyse and investigate open data to build evidence. It will consider certain case studies. The paper further attempts to explore the concept of data integrity and data cleaning required for investigative journalism.

Microservices - How to adapt the testing strategy
Most microservices are using application programming interfaces (APIs). Understanding Microservices testing in a meaningful way can unlock the power to create a truly effective testing strategy.Microservices testing allows you to build a solid framework for identifying defects at multiple layers of your application. These tests can all be automated and run continuously, so you can ensure that your application is aligned to business expectations while also functionally precise. Testing earlier, at the lower levels of the application, helps you “fail fast and fail early,” catching defects early at their source, rather than later in the SDLC.

How and what to Test in Microservices/API Testing.

eBPF: BPF kernel Infrastructure
eBPF is an upcoming in-kernel mechanism that provides ability inject arbitrary user space code into the kernel in a safe manner.
With ability to program any userspace code into the kernel, it open up a lot of possibilities for end-user to easily interact with kernel components. 
This lets users to develop various hooks into the kernel and use existing infrastructure to improve various parts of it.
One such major use case is High performance networking. With the advent of XDP(Express Data Path), it is allowing people to do packet filtering at an early point in the software stack in an extensible manner, which enables very fast packet processing compared to nftables, iptables etc.
Other such usecase is Kernel tracing, which is possible due to bcc(https://github.com/iovisor/bcc) and Bpftrace(DTrace for Linux, https://github.com/iovisor/bpftrace). It enables you to use kprobes, uprobes and tracepoints to deep dive into the intricacies in kernelspace/userspace and make sense of it.

The Legal Side of Open Source
"The session will be focused on the legal side of open source like licensing. A lot of people know about the Open Source but very few people are aware of the importance of licensing in Open Source. Many people are confused about which to choose, which one is better for them.
Sharing creative work with the world can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It can also mean a bunch of legal things you didn’t know you had to worry about.
I will talk about why do people care about the legal side and why it is so important. I will also briefly talk about the different type of licenses available and Which open source license is appropriate for the project. What if someone wants to change the license of my project? Most projects never need to change licenses. But occasionally circumstances change."

Rethinking Gluster Management using k8s
Gluster is a scalable network filesystem well-known to most people for its ease of use. When Gluster is used in k8s, it adds multiple layers of communication and not getting any real benefits of Kubernets ecosystem. For example, Gluster maintains a list of peer details to make Gluster cluster, this clustering itself is redundant when the cluster is already available in k8s setup. When Glusterd starts brick or server processes then it starts in the same container because Glusterd manages the running server processes. Due to this more than one process will run in a single Pod and can’t use many of the Kubernetes features like auto-restart, resource limits, etc. In this talk, we will discuss how the Gluster’s current management layer can be skipped and managed completely using k8s.

OpenShift on OpenStack: A match made in heaven
OpenStack which started out as general purpose cloud computing solution has reinvented itself multiple times over the past few years to stay relevant with the trends of the industry. Some of the most mission critical workloads in the Telco vertical are running on OpenStack today. In its latest avtar, OpenStack has become the foundation providing flexibility, performance and scale upon which OpenShift can be deployed.  OpenShift is the best way to truly run multi-cloud, enterprise grade Kubernetes and the idea here with OpenStack is to deliver the on-premise portion of multi-cloud. Several OpenStack features such as Octavia, Kuryr and Cinder enable high performance OpenShift deployments. In this presentation we will go over the interplay between Shift and Stack and some performance numbers.

Making right choices
Academics have been part of our life from a very very long time. Unfortunately with the fast paced tech world, our education system fails to cope up. Most of us are still learning the legacy stuff. How can we fix this? Students tend to miss out on opportunities due to lack of knowledge and/or confidence. Here comes the role of communities, it not only helps in building a network of like minded folks but also helps in seeking the right opportunities. Sayantika would address all those unsung pain points of a student's journey from 0 to 1.

NIC Partitioning in Openstack
Today some of the NFV telco use cases requires a pair of bonded NICs used for each of DPDK provider networks, SR-IOV VFs, Management network. This means there will be quite a lot of cabling requirements in the datacenter. Now with the introduction of high speed 25 Gbps , 40 Gbps, 100 Gbps Ethernet cards, we could simplify the network cabling of the openstack deployment. With 2 NICs we could meet today’s requirements as well as reduce cabling complexity by enabling SR-IOV on these >25G cards and each VF could be assigned to a network with a guaranteed QOS bandwidth.

Strategies for Replication in Distributed Systems
Any distributed storage system that scales out has some form of high availability (HA) built in to it. HA involves replication of data - either synchronously or in the background. This talk gives a brief introduction to both methods, explaining the pros and cons of each before diving in detail in to how gluster uses the the synchronous method in its Automatic File Replication translator for replicating data. We will understand the concepts involved in maintaining data consistency: locking of nodes, quorum checks, reconciliation of states, healing of data, preventing split-brains etc. and how they are actually implemented in code in gluster. Postulates like the CAP theorem are explained in practice from a real world system implementation.

Storage is Cheap, so is Water - Don’t Waste it
"Replication of data on different sites provides high availability, however, each copy adds more cost and latency. If you try to save money and only have 2 copies, it may lead to a situation where each copy claims to be a good copy and blame others as bad. This is called a split brain.

Thin arbiter volume just maintains information about the bad copy as a whole and not per file and acts as a quorum decision maker. This solution performs much faster than a three-way replica as it participates only in case of failure, only once. Thin arbiter keeps only one file of zero byte to keep information on good and bad copies. As a thin arbiter node does not participate in regular IO operations, it can be hosted on low-end servers or cloud, which saves money and effort.

Pet Containers in Fedora
Containers can be used personally for running desktop applications, also for locally building and testing software, and like pet VMs even as development environments. With the advent of Fedora Silverblue together with Podman non-root containers, "Pet Containers" become increasingly relevant to users. These development containers have the same advantages over VMs: they are light, start and stop very quickly, use less space and resources, and can easily be "provisioned".

In this talk I will present how one can use both short-lived and long-life containers on Fedora. Toolbox container tools in particular can provide convenient and flexible development environments particularly on immutable OS's like the Fedora Silverblue ostree-based desktop, using bind mounts and UID maps, etc.

Openshift 4 & Machine Learning with KubeFlow
The agenda of this presentation is to demostrate Machine Learning with our Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Red Hat Openshift .

Infrastructure engineers will often spend time modifying deployments before a single model can be tested. These deployments are often bound to the clusters they have been deployed to, thus moving a model from a laptop to a cloud cluster is difficult without significant re-architecture.
The open source Kubeflow project addresses these concerns by enabling Github Machine Learning stacks on Kubernetes portable across environments.
This presentation will focus upon the ML model which consists the following components.
o Jupyter Hub
o Tensorflow Custom Resource (CRD) that can be configured to use CPUs or GPUs, and adjusted to the size of a cluster
o TF Serving container

What hurts people in Open Source Community
To generate a thriving FOSS, most credible way is to generate a community which do not fall apart. Here prevention on degradation on quality is must as project can not be sustained for long without healthy community. Talk covers both symptoms and preventions for falling into holes where contributors fail to stay with project.

Short list of pointers to be covered are as following :

- Lack of recognition and credit for contribution.
- Bad elements which cause argue on name of discussion.
- Lack of focus on involving new blood into community.
- Lack of informal connection for sense of being belonged as family.
 - Absence of strong monitoring and ease of discussion about abusive or rude behaviour.

Merkle Mania : An approach for privacy in DLT
TRAI has been forward-looking and has mandated the use of DLT for curbing the menace of Unsolicited Commercial Communication. Though DLT promises auditability and transparency for the use-case, privacy is still a question. There are only a few known ways to put private data on a shared distributed ledger, like encryption, channels, and ZKP. This session explores an alternative method of privacy inspired by Verifiable Data Structures which works well in the above case of co-opting partners by providing a provable "trust" rather than trust based on reputation and law and talks of an example of how to implement such a system at scale using DLT. It will give an idea of how to use Merkle Tree to solve trust issues while designing a system which can be adapted for future technologies like ZKP.

Panel Discussion:- The Promise and Peril of Artificial Intelligence: Is AI a bane or boon for our society?
There have been two worlds w.r.t the outlook on AI and AGI with the media. On one hand portraying a grim future around killer robots, rise of the machines and the doubt of having intelligence govern or take critical decisions when we can’t even explain sometimes how it works. On the other hand, with the advent of newer tools, techniques, hardware and methodologies in ML and DL we have seen remarkable advancements in areas pertaining to technology, healthcare, agriculture, logistics, transportation and a multitude of diverse domains impacted positively by AI. The intent of this panel is to discuss their viewpoints on how they think AI can be a ‘bane’ and\or a ‘boon’ to society and what should we be looking forward to (promises) and be careful about (perils) in the 21st century!

Considering above following are some of the topics I will cover :-
- Securing Kubernetes Control Plane
- Multi-tenancy and ResourceQuota using Namespaces
- Authentication, Authorization
- Securing Container Images
- Secret Management
- Network Policies to control ingress/egress traffic for Pods
- Pod Security Policies
- Underlying Node Security

Kubernetes Stateful Workloads with Legacy
"Node Storage Device Manager (NDM) acts as a Storage Device Inventory System that is Kubernetes native - it uses Kubernetes Custom Resources to save and manage the information about the storage devices connected to the Kubernetes nodes. NDM is highly configurable using provisioners(OpenSDS),probes(OpenSeachest) and filters that can be easily extended to manage any kind of storage device.
NDM captures the information of storage device into a BlockDevice custom resource. The consumers of the disk - either the administrator or the operators can issue BlockDeviceClaims to associate the required BlockDevices to a given application.
One of the unique features of NDM is also detect the devices that are attached at runtime or devices that move across nodes - manually or using external operations."

Resource Management in OpenShift
  • Objective:   
Application Containers are nothing but Linux Processes, and it requires sufficient compute resources to run.  Configure the right size of CPU and Memory resources for Containers is a sort of necessary evil, mainly while Orchestrating them using Kubernetes/OpenShift.If the containers in a POD not having the compute resources configuration, it not only affects the resource sharing of the host but also impacts the Scheduling Priority and Quota Consumption.

In production clusters, `resource configuration` is one of the mandatory best practice in a Kubernetes based platform.

We know that the Linux Control Group (C-Group) configuration is a bit daunting task. But the OpenShift `deployment config` API provides a rather simple option to set the resources for the Containers in a POD.

The objective of this hands-on workshop is to learn the APIs and Procedures to set the CPU and Memory resources for a containerized application.

  • Pre-requisites:       
Expected Skill Level: The participants for the session should have the necessary hands-on experience in Docker and Kubernetes. Also, since the example tasks in the workshop are primarily using the command-line interface (CLI) to execute, the attendees need to have prior experience in Linux CLI.

  • Hardware Requirement:  

1. All participant for the workshop should carry  `laptop` with the functional wireless network interface; and is a  mandatory requirement to attend the hands-on workshops.

2.  To save time and avoid the client-side configuration requirements in the workshop session,  a pre-configured VM needs to be deployed on your Laptops to execute the commands.

3. Attendees need to set up and test the Client VM on your laptop. You may follow the below steps to import and configure the Client VM. The  VM should be ready before coming for the session. ( Please note that the One-hour  window is not sufficient to set up the Client VM and complete the Workshop tasks)

3.1. Install `Virtualbox 6.0` or later on the laptop

3.2. Download  the `Client VM` preinstalled with OopenShift client (OC) from the URL :


3.3. Install an SSH client on the Host Machine (e.g:  putty)

3.4. Make sure that you could `SSH` the client VM from the Host Laptop using the SSH client.You may find the steps to configure `Port Forwarding` in the URL


3.5. Verify that; you could access the external URLs from the client VM terminal. (TIP:  ping -c3 google.com)

  • Takeaway:   
1. APIs to Configure Resources in OpenShift.

2. Resources Management Concepts like `requests` and `limits` for CPU and MEMORY.

3. How the resource setting impacts Quality of Service (QoS) of the Pods.

4. View and Use the resource settings in Containerized Applications.5. How we can enforce the resource settings in a namespace.

NOTE: This workshop is limited to 40 attendees. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.

Genetic Algorithm Optimization for Deep Learning
Selection of the optimal parameters for Machine Learning tasks is challenging. Creating a perfect deep learning model requires a hefty amount of hyperparameter tuning, which involves brute force trial and error, and takes an immense amount of time. In this session, we improve the brute force method using Genetic Algorithm(GA) to achieve a network with the optimal hyperparameters. GA is commonly used for generating high-quality solutions for optimization using bio-inspired operators such as mutation, crossover, etc. For Neural Networks, weights in all layers help to achieve high accuracy. So each solution given by Genetic Algorithm holds all parameters that might help to enhance the results.

Charting in Modern Design
As with anyone needing dashboards, we conceptualised a JS/SVG charts module for use in ERPNext. But with an unconventional focus: Design.

It involved an unbiased focus on elements representing data points and minimal design. And animating every element gracefully, in native SMIL to maintain zero dependencies. And making them interactive, being made for a dynamic medium: the web.

Their launch as a lightweight and minimum configuration library gained traction on HackerNews with 477 points, and over 12k stars on GitHub. They were ultimately featured in GitHub Octoverse 2018.

As the ideology in everything we do, we believe Open Source is the most efficient way to vitalise ideas. And with it, we'd like to show that our experience is replicable for anyone who creates well-designed utilities.

Dynamic Metadata Management in Ceph File System
This session is about Metadata Management in the Ceph Distributed File System. In Ceph, this is achieved by using a cluster of metadata servers (MDS).
The MDS cluster should be able to maintain file system directory and permission semantics for a variety of workloads like scientific and general purpose workloads. This is brought to life by Dynamic Subtree Partioning: subtrees of the directory hierarchy are assigned to respective MDS dynamically.
Things people will learn out of this session:
- Why we need proper metadata management in distributed storage.
- Some of the existing methods of metadata management and its advantages and drawbacks.
- What is Dynamic Subtree Partitioning? Why do we need it? What makes it better than other metadata management techniques like hashing?

Java9 helps you React- Reactive Programming?
Many things turn out to become magically Reactive these days. Let's see in detail why a development model structured around asynchronous data streams is the talk of the town and how JDK 9’s new Flow API is enabling us to adapt to Reactive programming using just the JDK.
Due to the simplicity of the Reactive Stream standard, many of the interfaces created multiple similar implementations. In order to reduce this duplication and importation incompatibility, Java 9 now includes basic interfaces for each of the fundamental Reactive Stream concepts in the Flow Concurrency library. I will be taking everyone through Reactive streams standard and into the official Java implementation

Will present a few of the major Java-based reactive frameworks and toolkits in the market today.

Kernel dump analysis made quick and easy!
The kernel dump (vmcore) generated during system crash provides vital information for post-mortem analysis. Standard tools such as 'crash' provide basic commands to analyze vmcores. But doing a manual review of several thousand similar structures from a dump is very time consuming and in many cases impractical.

PyKdump provides Python based framework which lets you develop programs to quickly extract and process the required information. There are several practical tools already developed on top of PyKdump, e.g. xportshow (TCP/IP info), scsishow (SCSI and LVM), dmshow (multipath), nfsshow (NFS), hanginfo (hang analysis). They quickly extract information from dump and report potential issues. This is extremely useful to developers working on dump analysis.

Memory efficiency with Javascript Closures
Memory Leaks leading to undesired growth and exhaustion of memory are by far the most common production problem reported on enterprise scale Node applications. Closure, a powerful semantic feature in functional programs which are used pervasively in Node.js programs to support asynchronous and event driven programming model, is a prominent source of unanticipated memory leaks. In this presentation, I will explain three most common use cases where Closures are used in Node. The intent is to illustrate critical importance of closures in the functional programming, demonstrate peculiar ways in which closures retain memory resources and provide best practices in addressing those scenarios to help developers write efficient Javascript programs.

gRPC or REST, Why not both?
While writing microservices you have to make a choice, REST or gRPC (https://grpc.io). While REST has been the norm for writing microservices for quite some time, gRPC is replacing it. But what if one want their services to be available as both a REST and a gRPC service. In this session, I will show you how you can realise this. In addition to this, I will also show how you document your REST APIs.

Participants can have a look at https://grpc.io to know what gRPC is.
No resources are required.
Expected outcome - Attendees will have an idea about what gRPC is and how to write gRPC and REST services from a single codebase.

Open vSwitch Hardware Offload over DPDK
Telcos and Cloud providers are looking for higher performance and scalability when building nextgen datacenters for NFVi. While running OVS over DPDK which reduces the CPU/Memory overload of interrupt-driven packet processing, system resources are still not completely freed up from polling of packet queues.

To solve this challenge, OpenvSwitch is further accelerated through Hardware offloads. This methodology can enable a split data plane between OpenvSwitch and the advanced NIC hardware (SMART NIC).

We will be presenting how an OpenFlow tag that represents the matched rule in the hardware is passed to OVS which saves system resource cycles consumed for flow lookup. We will be using Mellanox Card.

Offchain instant payments using Lightning Network
In a shared economy where a person gets paid for lending goods,we need to ensure that the person who is using the goods has sufficient funds to use it as well as make sure that the payment is happening as per the duration of usage.This can be done using bitcoin but it has some drawbacks like high transaction fee & latency in a transaction.One of the possible ways to do such micropayments with less transaction fee is using the lightning network by creating a channel between the owner & the user which is a 2-of-2 multisig address where the user deposits the required amount of coins to ensure that he has sufficient funds.The payment will be done based on the duration of usage & only creation & closing of channels involves a fee which reduces the fee & the off-chain mechanism reduces latency.

Emulated Stack - A Virtual world of Openstack
The focus of this session is to provide a way in which one can utilize the power of virtualization to emulate the required pieces of hardware to build a cloud that is close to what one will be deploying in a production environment.

The idea is to primarily build a fully virtual lab that will consists of switches, routers and isolated vlans along with a Highly Available overcloud environment.

This will assist the field teams to better plan and also potentially eliminate any potential issues that may be encountered while deploying production grade overclouds in actual production environments.

Here's a outline of the various technologies that we will combine to emulate the stack:

B) qemu-kvm
C) Openstack
D) Vyos
E) Cumulus

Self-Learning : Is this the future?
This session will be focusing on trying to trace the general learning pattern of a developer - the self-learning route questioning how they find their communities, study-groups, resources, what they see as building their profiles, and how they integrate this education with the real-world jobs. It is to both trace and provoke conversation along learning online: are we really learning alone or is their a community that is always online to help each other out and do meet-ups help enhance that learning experience? The aim of this discussion is to uncover and explore the realm of possibilities for future learning and future jobs. Can MOOC credits help create an entire profile? Can online community referrals help a newbie build their own career from scratch? Do we see the patterns of Lambda Schools arising out and displace the traditional College Education in general? These are the questions and discussions that we would be attempting.

The Subtle Art of Backward Differencing
With lots of data being generated at a pace that was once unimaginable it's now a challenge to acquire, examine and process the data. This talk exposes the use of a simple mathematical technique that aids in finding patterns in data especially sensor data from various devices around us. Finding patterns in data is an important task for data scientists/machine learning engineers so as to train models for future classification/regression tasks. Backward differencing has other advantages in data cleaning and feature engineering.

Skydive - The real time network analyzer
With the growing number of network cloud services, it becomes essential to be able to monitor, troubleshoot, and analyze different virtualization and container technologies. Being able to monitor a complex, heterogeneous, federated cloud environment is key. SDN solutions usually come with their own toolset. which limits the monitoring to a restricted perimeter.

In this presentation, we will present Skydive, which offers another solution. Skydive is a real-time and post-mortem topology and packet analyzer. While Skydive is agnostic to the SDN controller, it comes with connectors to OpenStack and container-based solutions. We will present Skydive’s ability to monitor heterogeneous deployments using OpenStack and Openshift, and we will show real network troubleshooting use cases

A recipe for online data migration in Redis
"Redis is an open source in-memory store, used as a database, cache and message broker. Redis in production often contain millions of objects, which are written to and read by multiple distributed micro-services.

Companies using Redis, at some point, will likely have to migrate data from one cluster/instance to another for reasons like scaling, modelling data, upgrading instance type/capacity, cost optimization, refactoring code, etc. Keys stored in Redis need to be accessible and services need to remain available at all times, including during migration.

This talk describes how Redis migrations can be handled at scale in production without any service downtime, the challenges we faced and how we solved it. It further touches upon best practices of using Redis cluster in production."

Panel Discussion:- The AI Revolution: Gateway to success in your enterprise and career with AI
The focus of this panel is manifold, the idea here is with a new advent of the revolution being brought about in our life, career, and jobs with AI, how do we ensure success in our ever-evolving careers and also ensure success for the enterprises, companies we work in and the businesses we run. There will be three major themes for this panel:
  1. Enabling Successful Adoption of AI in your organization: What does it really take to move from a data-driven company to be an AI-driven company? How do we tackle problems AI\Data first? What kind of workflows and processes are followed to take an AI product or solution from conception to production? How much importance should be given to understanding business problems, do we notice any gaps between the business and data scientists\engineers. How important is engineering to ensure the success of an AI product? How do we monitor the performance of AI models after production? How do we make our clients, business, C-level execs embrace change in existing processes with AI

  2. Job Roles in Data Science\AI and what they do: The ever-changing job landscape has been hit with a multitude of roles pertaining to data science and AI. We have data scientists, data engineers, ML engineers, DL engineers, data analysts, business analysts, ML architect and many more. What are some of the major job roles or rather tasks which people have to do in this field? What is a typical day in the life of a data scientist\manager? How do we measure and ensure success in these new job titles? What are some of the key use-cases panelists might have solved to drive their own careers towards success? Are creativity and innovation often dying out in larger companies which suffocate data scientists? etc
  3. How to build a successful career in data science: I’m a student, there is literally an overload of information out there with regard to data science resources, bootcamps, trainings, lectures, courses, degrees. Almost everyone seems to be “doing data science”. What do I need to learn, practice, implement and work towards so I can break into this field. What are the key pitfalls and challenges I should be careful about? How do I make sure I don’t get too deep and disillusioned into the AI hype?

Hybrid Cloud and Multi-Cluster Connectivity
Hybrid Cloud is becoming a common deployment these days. When your kubernetes clusters are spread across a mix of on-prem/public clouds, and you want your cluster local services to be made available to services in a different cluster, there are number of things to be considered like Cluster Connectivity, Service Discovery, Security etc.

In this presentation we would like to present a solution that is
1. Cloud Agnostic: works on both on-premise and public clouds
2. Tunnel Management and Health-check: includes mechanisms to connect two/more clusters and periodically perform health-checks
3. Service discovery and Service reachability: expose cluster-IP services to other clusters
4. Inter-Cluster Network Policy: provides mechanisms to explicitly allow/deny traffic
