* Don't Get Scared, Get Started

Contributing to open source is rewarding in terms of the satisfactions you get while you help the open source community to grow as well as the new things that you get to learn. If you go on discussing about contributing to open source most of them find it intimidating. Most of them are scared of contributing to open source projects. Most of them think that it is too tough to get in, too tough to get started and they won’t be able to do it. There are a lot of myths about the difficulty level of getting started with contributing to open source. With this talk I would like to break the myths and tell the truths around them.

* Faults in Linux

In 2001, Chou et al. published a study of common faults in Linux versions 1.0 through 2.4.1. They used a static analyzer to get the results. In 2014, Palix et al. extended this work to cover the 2.6.x versions of the Linux Kernel [1]. They found that the number of common faults decreased from the previous study results, implying better code quality in 2.6.x, but was still very high. This talk will report on my work on applying the same analysis to the Linux 3.x versions. The studied period in particular includes the zero-day build testing service in 2012.
