Concerned about the latest development trends in the open source ecosystem in recent years, GOTC 2023 specially planned four "special forums" : 3D and Game World Technology Summit, eBPF, AI is Everywhere, and focus on open source security :

3D and Gaming World Technology Summit

Since 2021, Web 3.0 and Metaverse have gradually become popular concepts in the global technology community. Technology giants such as Meta, Google, Apple, Huawei, Tencent, OPPO, etc. have been actively deploying related industries. One of the key technologies is the 3D engine. Whether it is a smart city, building a virtual space, industrial design or a highly realistic immersive user experience, it is inseparable from a powerful 3D engine technology. Starting from open source technology, this forum will lead the audience through the 3D Metaverse world. In addition, this forum will lead the audience to enjoy the 3D and game world, appreciate 3D and game technology, and discuss the exploration and implementation of business in this field.


eBPF (extended Berkeley Packet Filter) is a very flexible and efficient virtual machine-like component in the Linux kernel. It can run directly in the Linux kernel mode, and can complete the processing of data packets and system calls in the first time, avoiding the kernel mode and user Switching between states and data copy overhead. Due to the strong security and stability of eBPF, more and more eBPF-based projects have sprung up like mushrooms after rain. At present, eBPF has been used in many kernel subsystems, such as common network, load balancing, tracking and security and other fields. In addition, some widely used open source projects, such as Cilium, Falco, Bcc, Katran, Bpftrace, Kubectl-trace, etc., have adopted this technology. This forum will provide an overview of eBPF technology and share how it can be put into practice.

AI is Everywhere

The era of AI empowering everything has arrived. The number of AI-enabled devices is expected to grow to 75 million by 2025, impacting every industry and job. Each type of AI application may have its own development ecosystem and architecture. For enterprises, this model means high maintenance costs and high security risks, and limits the pace of application and innovation of new AI technologies for enterprises. The LF AI & DATA open source community has been committed to creating a global AI technology and developer ecosystem. We sincerely invite all open source AI users, contributors and community members to join this gathering to discuss the future of open source AI.

Focus on Open Source Security

Open source software is ubiquitous in data centers, consumer devices and applications. The use of open source code has become the new normal in software development. Statistics show that an average of 90% of the code of a software comes from open source. Ensuring the security of the open source supply chain has far exceeded the ability of ordinary developers. Open source security requires the industry to work together to create automation tools for the industry, summarize best practices, promote security education, and encourage open source security collaboration. You will hear from open source security experts and users from around the world in this special forum. We invite all open source users, contributors, and community members to this meetup.

In addition, the conference also set up many sub-forums. At that time, around "infrastructure and software architecture", "big front-end new trends", "cloud native technology", "open source education", "programming language", "embedded", "open source governance", "data and database technology", "DevOps", "Web3.0 ” and other popular topics of open source, open source experts will take turns to play, stirring up the spark of thought.

  • Cloud Native Summit: Cloud Native Summit is the flagship conference of CNCF. The summit gathers users and technical experts from the world's leading open source and cloud native communities. Meet at the Cloud Native Summit China on GOTC in 2023 to discuss the future and technical direction of cloud native computing.

  • Linux Foundation Open Source Education and Talent Development Summit: In the recent Linux Foundation Open Source Jobs report, there is a strong demand for open source talent given the continued adoption of cloud computing and digital transformation across industries. Open source experts from all walks of life are invited to come to GOTC to discuss the challenges of domestic open source education and talent training source education, grasp the most popular open source technologies, help developers understand the way to enter the open source circle, and start open source careers.

  • Infrastructure and software architecture: operating system, database, programming language, RISC-V... These are the most basic, important and complex parts of the software system. How is the state-of-the-art in these areas? Any software needs a suitable architecture, how to make the architecture more ideal, and what new architectural tricks are currently available are also the content that this forum wants to discuss.

  • Web 3.0: Web 3.0 was pushed to the forefront this year, but it was actually proposed in 2014. However, when we talk about Web 3.0, what are we talking about? This forum will lead the audience to clear the fog, fully understand the form and technology stack of Web 3.0, and explore the direction that can be put into practice.

  • New trends in the big front-end: low-code, WebAssembly, small programs, cross-end, PWA, Flutter, Dart, RN, Vue, Angular... These technologies are becoming more and more popular. This forum focuses on front-end front-end open source related technologies and practical experience, so that Technology better serves the industry.

  • Programming language: In the world of open source, programming language is essential, and each language has its own ability and temperament. This forum will share with you the skills in the actual use of programming languages ​​that have been trending in the past two years, as well as the language-related ecology. development etc.

  • OSPOCon: "Our local companies are very strong, not only have a lot of contributions, but also open source a lot of projects, but there is one thing that is not enough, that is, the cooperation between companies in open source is still on the rise. Space." CNCF Greater China Director Keith Chan concluded in a live broadcast event. The logic of collaboration and competition in the digital world is completely different from our past industrial age. For large-scale software projects, or production projects that rely on longer chains, the engineering consumption, maintenance costs, and innovation promotion are not a commercial company. It can be done independently, but it needs to gather more companies to work together. This also means that enterprises related to information technology need to learn to cooperate. In many cases, they may compete in business, but they need to cooperate in infrastructure. There is no doubt that this puts forward higher requirements for enterprises. Taking advantage of the general trend of GOTC 2023, we would like to invite OSPO-related practitioners from local companies to discuss this huge problem together. It aims to advance an important step for the next local open source. We will work on the following topics:

    • What is the role of OSPO's corporate collaboration on open source projects?

    • How should OSPOs between enterprises interact?

    • How should benefits be calculated?

    • How OSPO convinces decision-makers and business departments internally

    • Business requirements and expectations for neutral organizations and institutions

  • DevOps Frontline: The most cutting-edge DevOps theory, technology and practice.

  • Data and database technology: The Internet and the Internet of Things continue to develop, and processing technologies for massive data emerge in an endless stream and continue to mature. In this process, big data, streaming data, and databases are becoming more and more closely connected. This forum will focus on data technology and lead the audience to the current technological frontier.

In addition to the traditional content sharing and event exhibition area, this conference also ingeniously planned new ways of playing such as "flash speeches", "big coffee parlors", "HR face-to-face", "open source space-time tunnel". Such as "Open Source Space-Time Tunnel", the conference site will build a 3D cyberpunk future world around open source. For practical issues such as community development and survival challenges faced in open source practice, the conference will invite mainstream communities, large open source experts, and authors of grassroots open source projects to hold closed-door meetings to find solutions.

Meet at GOTC 2023, investment promotion and topic collection are actively underway, and open source enthusiasts in various technical fields around the world are sincerely invited to join in this grand event.
