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."

Definitively Measuring Community Health
Open source has matured to the point where community leaders must have concrete data and evidence on how a community is succeeding (or not), beyond just a "feeling." But, as Brian Proffitt will describe in this talk, data will not solve this problem alone. All the data in the world won't help you find answers if you don't know what the questions are.

Brian will provide clear and focused guidance on what the right questions can be for a community and how to obtain the data communities need to determine their health, based on his work as a governing board member of Project CHAOSS.

Community Management : Not less than a curry
I have been managing the Mozilla communities across the globe since 2015. Link: https://reps.mozilla.org/u/prathamesh/
Every volunteer joins an Open Source community for a reason. The reasons could range from technical gains to finding his/her/their passion. This community of diverse volunteers require a leader who can not just mentor them with their interests but also a manager managing the community activities in terms of community engagement and planning. A community manager is not less than a candle of light and in this presentation, I would be highlighting my learnings and experiences about starting a community from scratch around a project and maintaining a healthy community management practices.
A volunteer interested in community mgmt. can best benefit out of this presentation.

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.

FOSSology–Efficient Open Source License Compliance
In collaborative project development, it is important to get an insight of the open source software, to determine involved licensing and license obligations. FOSSology is a software project that is specialized in identifying license relevant statements. It can also scan source code for Copyright notices, Keywords and Export control relevant statements. FOSSology lets users generate compliance documentation according to the organization's needs, in a variety of data formats (SPDX tag-value, RDF).
FOSSology, is a Linux Foundation collaboration project, licensed under the GPL-2.0. Recently, new technology and approaches has been introduced in FOSSology, which is going towards more automation by providing a REST API for example. This presentation explains how users can use FOSSology features.

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.
