Eclipse Oniro

Oniro is a project hosted by the Eclipse Foundation having as mission to disrupt the existing IoT & Edge markets by creating a family of fully open source operating systems serving as the baseline for end-to-end solutions within different markets, focusing at first in consumer devices.

Such family of modern Operating Systems are tailored as a pre-production platform, capable of being deployed in a wide range of interconnected devices, big and small, having interoperability, security and sovereignty as core ID. Oniro contributors seek a future where devices are connected to each other independently of the device maker and users (individuals and organizations) control their data.

Agustín led the Open SUSE Team for almost two years which was formed by all SUSE employees working full time at the openSUSE project. At the same time, Agustín acted as program manager from SUSE at openSUSE, being responsible for the budged and the representation of the company at the project.

The openSUSE team led the transformation of the openSUSE distribution into a modern rolling release, which later on was called Tumbleweed. This team also created different tools and applications that became wide used like openQA or the Travel Support Program management app.


As project website states, “The BuildStream project develops, delivers and maintains an integration toolset called BuildStream specially designed for software application developers and integrators of complex systems that follow modern delivery methodologies to ship software that should be in production for a long time. At the same time, as Free Software project, BuildStream ships versions of the tools set advancing the features that will be shipped in the future for those who want to evaluate where the toolset is heading or test them.” Buildstream, together with the Remote Execution implementation called BuildGrid, constitute a new generation of Open Source integration tools.

Agustín contributed to this FLOSS project during the second semester of 2018 coordinating different areas, organising gatherings, planning activities, defining and documenting processes to help scaling up the project, creating reports, data analysis, etc. These contributions were done as part of his involvement at Codethink.
