Apart from technical topics speakers will share their experience from making prototype to going to large scale production and working with mass manufacturers.
Open Data, Internet Society, Community
More and more governments, companies and citizens share data for the benefit of the society. What are the use cases for Open data? What possibilities do we have for a truly free society in the times of tracking devices and supervision technologies, how to keep communities engaged in Free and Open Source development?

Learn about network servers, hacking with x86 Windows tablets, asynchronous integration of GPU computing with HPX many task processing, Unikernelized Linux, Open Build Service in Debian, and C from the trenches.
Science Tech and Education
Science needs to be open and verifiable. As more and more tools are available to a larger part of the population the chance to become a scientist or simply to participate in citizen science increases. What tools exist? What hardware is available? How to do science hands-on with Open Source software and hardware?
