OW2con'19 is the annual open source event bringing together the OW2 community, technology experts, software architects, IT project managers and decision-makers from around the world.

The central theme of OW2con this year is: "Open Source: Toward Industry Maturity". As open source is becoming mainstream, IT developers, vendors, users and even open source organisations such as OW2 have to adapt.
Free software came about in 1983 as a movement launched by and for developers working collaboratively on software projects, it evolved in the mid-1990s as commercial open source and with the explosion of cloud computing, big data, IoT, etc. in 2010, it became the de facto vehicle for collaborative innovation. What the billion-dollar open source mergers announced in 2018 tell us is that open source is reaching industry maturity. Open source projects are becoming increasingly competitive and all IT developers, vendors and users must have an open source strategy.
