If you use open source technology, and nearly every single current technologist does or has, you’ve been directly affected by a foundation.
Whether they host and support an open source project/technology you use and benefit from, establish strategic and legal parameters and direction for the project and technologies, or cultivate a community you might be a member of, you’ve been affected.
Four of the most important open source foundations in the world will be represented at Open Source 101 in Columbia, and attendees will have an opportunity to meet them and learn more.
Foundations attending and participating at the conference include:
The Linux Foundation – John Mertic, Director of Program Management
The Apache Software Foundation – Jim Jagielski, Co-Founder
NodeJs Foundation – Mark Hinkle, Executive Director
