A unique opportunity to take part in the revolution that is changing the software industry.
OW2con'13 is the fifth edition of the annual community event that brings together technology experts, software architects, IT developers, project managers and decision-makers from 50 countries around the world. This year’s international conference will be held at Innovation Gardens at the Orange R&D complex in Paris-Issy-les-Moulineaux, on Wednesday and Thursday, 13-14 November 2013. A full workshop day will take place on Tuesday November 12. All developers, open source strategists, technologists and entrepreneurs are welcome to attend, share their experiences and network with their peers.
Open source is a great mechanism for collaborative innovation in software. No cumbersome IP negotiations, no costly contracts, the rules of engagement are defined by the license attached to the code. Leveraging open source to accelerate collaborative innovation is definitively the way forward. Our experience at OW2 demonstrates this everyday through our involvement in collaborative projects and our support for innovative cloud computing projects.
What's new in 2013?
This year's conference programme will give a larger room to panel discussions, expanding the speaker's profile to professional end-users, other communities and IT specialists. The OW2 Projects Awards contest will be renewed this year.
This two-day event will cover a wide range of current topics, including middleware technologies, Business Intelligence, Big Data, security, mobility and open source cloud computing, while providing opportunities to socialize with open source professionals in an informal atmosphere at the landmark venue. OW2con'13 will also enable OW2 members, including organizations and individuals, to gain visibility on their initiatives and collaborative projects.
