There are several initiatives currently underway, such as Expunge MA. How might we ensure individuals are aware of and access their new legal rights to increase confidentiality of their court records? 

Juvenile and criminal records impede a young person’s access to housing, education and employment, preventing young people’s positive transition into successful adulthood. CfJJ, in partnership with youth-led organizers, successfully advocated for the creation of an expungement statute to allow individuals the opportunity expunge their juvenile and criminal records for offenses charged when they were younger than 21 year olds. In October 2018, a new law takes effect that allows for the expungement of certain records, but with certain limitations. Unfortunately, though this new right would help many young people move beyond their past transgressions, the eligibility criteria are complicated. Attorney assistance to help individuals screen their eligibility or to provide guidance and resources to take advantage of these new rights is significantly limited.

Code for Boston

Code for Boston is a Code for America Brigade – a volunteer civic innovation organization created by Boston-area developers, designers, urban planners, and data geeks with an interest in solving civic and social problems through the use of creative technology.

There are several initiatives currently underway, such as “Plogalong” - a mobile application that helps motivate people to clean up their streets, parks, and beaches. When you plog, you pick up trash as you go about your daily life... jogging, hiking, or simply walking down the street. “Plogalong” is looking to assemble a core team! Eva will serve as the project manager and UX designer, but we are in need of software developers to make the app a reality. This core team will begin constructing an iOS and Android app from the ground up using React Native. A tested clickable prototype of the app already exists, so we are ready to start development.

Abstract:

"Open Source Developers Are Security’s New Front Line"

Over the last five years, a shifting battlefield of attacks based on OSS consumption has emerged. Attackers effectively have a first-mover advantage based on responsible disclosures.

It’s become clear that we are in the middle of a systematic attack on the social trust and infrastructure used to distribute open source. In just a few years, we’ve gone from attacks on pre-existing vulnerabilities occurring months after a disclosure down to two days - and now, we are at the point where attackers are directly hijacking publisher credentials and distributing malicious components.

Open source developers are the front line of the new battle. We must not let them ruin the reputation of the things we’ve built. In this session, Brian Fox, 20 year open source developer, core contributor to Maven and CTO ofSonatype will:

  • Analyze, and detail, the events leading to today’s “all-out” attack on the OSS industry

  • Define what the future of open source looks like in today’s new normal

  • Outline how developers can step into the role of security, to protect themselves, and the millions of people depending on them
