Mozilla exists to make sure the web stays open and awesome. With recent launch of Drumbeat.org, we're now moving beyond Firefox to build more things that make the web better -- not just software. Examples include: open subtitles for every video on the web; free web developer skills training for people around the world; simple tools that unleash the full power of open video on the web. We're doing this by reaching out to new kinds of people - teachers, filmmakers, lawyers, journalists -- and you. Come to this session to learn more about how you can help shape the future of the web.

Open Source Configuration Sharing by Power Users/Developers Using YAML in a Wiki

in Community, Company, Entrepreneurship, FSOSS, FSOSS2010, Web Programming

Open source is a lot of the time about the code. But what about the configurations? In some cases, configuring a platform can take significant time and depending on the configuration, the resulting application can be very different and address varied uses. The power users/developers of TikiWiki CMS/Groupware had exactly this problem of configuration being too tedious and full of reinventing the wheel each time. They then figured out a way to share configurations as easy-to-learn YAML inside a wiki so that other power users/developers can make use, enhance and combine these modular application configurations, leading to new and innovative applications that are easily deployed through an automated system. The same approach should be possible for configuration sharing for many different platforms, not just TikiWiki.

Federating the Social Web

in Community, Company, FSOSS, FSOSS2010, Social Networking

Location

Social Networking continues to grow both in personal use as well as the enterprise. However, the dominate networks of today exist primarily as walled gardens - silos of users. The Federated Social Web is a growing movement to connect users across networks to allow following, status updates, favourites, etc between users on different systems. OStatus (http://ostatus.org/) is an open protocol we've developed at StatusNet (http://status.net/) to implement these features within our software. We'll cover who's implementing it today, and what kind of control a federated model gives companies and individuals. We'll also give first steps on what you can do to create your presence in a federated social web.
