  • Starting this year, an exciting Software Development Conference, is planned in the heart of the Mediterranean, October 3-4, 2013. The event features two full conference days with multiple tracks, providing a community for learning, networking and tracking innovation in software development.

    We believe that “Knowledge Empowers You” and MEDIT Symposium conference gives the opportunity to affordably attend up to thirty sessions on topics such as, Cloud Computing, Open Source and Mobile Development, which all developers and professionals in the software community are passionate about, while meeting like minded individuals and Speakers from across the industry.

    The venue is is in the Castle of Milazzo, Sicily, which is not an ordinary venue, and has been selected for location, culture and food.

    Sicily, the island of Archimedes of Syracuse, considered one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity, Castle of Milazzo that gives a blast from the past combined with the view of the splendor of the Aeolian Islands (UNESCO) and the local community that has an ancient and wise culinary tradition.

    These are some of the ingredients that make the MEDIT, a unique conference of its kind, that gives to our Speakers and Attendees the perfect location and mind set to present, discuss and share.

    The hospitality starts from the moment you land on the island where you will be greeted by members of MEDIT team upon arrival at the international airport of Catania to accompany you to the city, passing under the slopes of Etna (UNESCO), the tallest active volcano in Europe and land of Cyclopes, admiring Taormina, Strait of Messina and arriving at the final destination, the cape of Milazzo.

  • Like 80% of other development teams, you are increasingly relying on open source components. This enables you to develop faster, reduce costs and improve efficiency.

    On the flip side, it is very difficult to know what components were used, and in which parts of your product. When a security vulnerability is discovered in an open source component, you will likely not know. And when it is fixed, no one will tell you that a new version is available.

    You're not alone… Research shows that 70% of applications fail to comply with basic enterprise security policies, and that 85% of software projects relied on at least one open source library that was out of date.

    There is a better way….

    Join Rami Sass, White Source CEO, on Tuesday, October 8th at 9:30AM EST to see how you can continuously track your open source components and be notified when a security vulnerability is discovered and when it is fixed.

    The session will cover:
    • Open source security vulnerabilities
    • How to effectively track and update your open source inventory down to the last dependency
    • How to be notified about security vulnerabilities and bug fixes
    • How to deploy an effective open source governance program

    Date: October 8, 2013 9:300 AM EDT.

Since joining forces last year, Strata + Hadoop World is also one of the largest gatherings of the Apache Hadoop community, with emphasis on hands-on and business sessions on the Hadoop ecosystem.

    Strata sells out every year. One reason for Strata's immense popularity is our speakers, who have real-world experience with exciting innovations in big data—and the desire to pass on their hard-won knowledge. Does that sound like you?

  • The membership of the Open Government Partnership has grown from 8 countries to 60 countries in just 23 months. Why? Because the desire for honest, efficient and effective government is universal, and is now more urgent than ever. In many places, public confidence in government is at all-time lows, and people are demanding a voice. More and more governments around the world recognize that to keep up, we must open up. And to open up, we must innovate.

    We now have the know-how and the technology to reinvent the relationship between citizens and the state. This is by no means an easy task, but when we look around, we see that good ideas come from everywhere. That is what the Open Government Partnership is all about. This October 31-November 1, 2013 we would like to invite you to join us in London to celebrate recent innovations in open government and challenge ourselves to stay ahead of the curve.
