Oniro Program Manager at Eclipse Foundation

Agustín became Oniro Program Manager at The Eclipse Foundation from August 2021 until February 2023. This was a remote position.

At Eclipse, Program Managers have three main assignments:

  • Become the liaison between the assigned project and the Eclipse Foundation.
  • Facilitate that the project works under the Eclipse Foundation principles and values.
  • Support the Working Group Members and community members to make the project a success.

Oniro, before becoming an Eclipse Foundation project, was developed in the open, following many of the Open Source principles and practices. It was called AllScenarioOS, led by Huawei through its Open Source Technology Center (OSTC) in Europe. The project was contributed to Eclipse Foundation late in 2021 and called Oniro. Agustín invested most of his efforts during the first year in the role in supporting the onboarding of Oniro into Eclipse Foundation.

Agustín supported Oniro Members in the creation of the Oniro Working Group and Project charters, in the formation and proper functioning of their governance bodies as well as the definition of the Program Plans, the documents that defines the yearly goals as well as a variety of key processes like the Oniro Platform Release Roadmap process or the Oniro Prospects Pipeline management process.

The last few months of Agustín’s activity at Oniro focused on supporting the release of oniro-core v2.0, the first release under Eclipse Foundation, published in December 2022.

Oniro was the first big operating system under Eclipse Foundation. Such kind projects bring challenges to any organization in areas like IT or IP, to name a few. Agustín’s experience in the operating system field as well as Open Source foundations has helped to make this onboarding process smoother on both ends.

In addition, Agustín supported the project in areas like business development and communication, bringing attention to the project among developers and organizations to increase Oniro’s community and ecosystem. Agustín participated as speaker in several international Open Source and IoT-Edge industry events promoting Oniro.

Agustín did also other things at Eclipse Foundation like promoting the organization within Spain, co-organising in Málaga, ES, the Eclipse Foundation EU team yearly face-to-face retreat, promoting internally remote-work good practices or advising about operating systems and automotive platforms to a variety of stakeholders and staff, among other actions.
