Over the next few days, Collabora is very excited to be taking part in three events where we'll be exhibiting as well as giving talks! If you are planning on attending any of these events and would like to meet, please get in touch!
Starting tomorrow, we'll be attending and exhibiting at the Augmented World Expo, in Santa Clara, California! We'll be sharing a booth with our friends Vrvana, where they'll be showcasing their Totem headset. Come by booth #645 to give it a try, and see how our extended reality (XR) team has the experience and knowledge to assist you in developing XR related products and applications that push to boundaries of human-computer interaction in the modern world.
Also noteworthy, Vrvana's CEO & Founder, Bertrand Nepveu, will be giving a talk at 10:45 PST on Friday, June 2, titled "Welcome to Tomorrow: Creating Content that Blends AR & VR (Lessons Learned)". Head on over to the AWE schedule to learn more about Bert's talk.
While AWE takes place in sunny California, we'll also be exhibiting on the other side of the Pacific, at the Automotive Linux Summit in Tokyo, Japan! Guy Lunardi, VP, Business Development, and Sjoerd Simons, Core Domain Lead, will be at our booth to showcase some of our latest work in the automotive industry. If you are planning on attending, please come by and see how our team is uniquely suited to accelerate and facilitate the realization of your in-vehicle Open Source related projects!
Furthermore, in addition to our booth, Guy will also be giving a talk at 16:00 JST on Thursday, June 1, titled Keeping Up with Upstream: From Source to Build to QA:
Figuring out a way to meet your security and safety requirements while at the same time addressing the ever growing demand of consumers for technological innovations in cars means that ideas and concepts thought of in-house are no longer enough. Opening up innovation to external application creators is now a necessity. This session intends to walk through some of the work happening upstream to help facilitate that.
We will be touching on some of the changes coming in 2017 around: Pushing the security model of Wayland forward to ensure applications are compartmentalized and secured, Faster and smaller updates on Linux kernel based systems, Friendlier developer build tools and automated QA capabilities, Split run-time environments and Sandboxing of applications.

Last, but not least, Collaborans will also be attending the Open Source Summit Japan, which is co-located with ALS. Andrew Lee, Software Engineer, will be giving a talk on Wednesday, May 31, titled "Open Build Service in Debian", while Gustavo Padovan, Principal Software Engineer, will be speaking on Friday, June 2, with a talk titled "Unifying Android and Mainline Kernel Graphics Stack".
