OW2con goes online in 2020

OW2con is the annual event of the OW2 community, it brings together technology experts, software architects, IT developers, project managers and decision-makers from all around the world. It will take place on June 17-18, 2020, this time fully online.

The central theme of OW2online’20 is: “The Challenges of Full-Stack Open Source“. This background theme refers to the challenges appearing today for decision makers who consider evolving their information systems with open source software. As open source has become mainstream it is not limited to the operating systems and infrastructure middleware. Open source software across the whole information system is what we call “full stack open source”.

The talks on OW2con are destined to improve the technical skills of open source professionals, strike their imaginations and motivate them to excel professionally. The OW2 annual conference is appreciated for its short, focused and cutting-edge sessions.

Multiple broad themes will be addressed: privacy and security, blockchain, AI, accessibility, open cloud, IoT, enterprise application platforms, Big Data and BI, dependency management, NLP, OSS challenges, OSS governance, OSS compliance, OSS market readiness, OSS in Europe, OSS in big cities, software quality & testing.

Given the duration of the pandemic in France and most recent government health measures, the annual conference will be adapted as follows:

  • OW2con’20 will go online and be held as a virtual event,
  • the event format will be maintained: one day of online presentations and 1/2 day of break-out sessions,
  • a catch up with an additional face-to-face community day on November 3rd.

OW2con is open to everyone, the event is free and conferences will be held in English. More information on www.ow2con.org.
