A Journey Between Values and Value

June 7-8, 2018, Paris.

Held for the tenth consecutive year, OW2con'18 is the annual community event that brings together the OW2 community and technology experts, software architects, IT developers, project managers and decision-makers from all around the world.

The main theme for this year's conference is "Open Source Software: Values and Value"

Free software was defined a generation ago by the freedom to use, read, modify and redistribute the code. Yet these four simple rules have had the power to change the software industry. What appeared as an efficient techno-legal construct based on generous values of sharing and openness to efficiently collaborate on software development efforts has become open source software, a business model and a vehicle of collaborative innovation. OW2con’18 will concentrate on the many faces of open source software, its journey between values and value.We are designing a new format for OW2con’18. The event will showcase companies and communities, project demos and meet-ups, forward looking roundtables on breakthrough technologies, etc.

OW2con'18 is kindly hosted by Orange (Orange Gardens, Paris-Chatillon).

Attend OW2con'18 for two days of project presentations, demonstrations, roundtables, keynote presentations and free lunch and the now legendary OW2 free beer party!

Come meet the community. And don't forget to tweet about your participation!

The CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS will open mid-December, 2017. Stay tuned!
