Open Source Event in Boston at Open Source Prices!
There's an Open Source Summit in Boston on Friday, June 24 that looks to be a great way to spend the day. It's only $20, some open source heavies will be there, and you get a free video by Dan Bricklin titled "A Developer's Introduction to Copyright and Open Source" - that's some serious value.
Here's the key info from their web site:
"The event, moderated by Dan Bricklin, President, Software Garden, and Bob Zurek, Vice President, Advanced Technology, Ascential Software, will consist of 3 key audience driven interactive panel sessions, along with a luncheon industry keynote.
- Open Source Licensing
Hosted by Karen Copenhaver, general counsel of Black Duck Software, and Ira Heffan of Goodwin Procter, this panel will discuss some of the most interesting recent developments in open source licensing topics.
- Open Source Business Models And Strategies
Hosted by Tim Yeaton, Chief Marketing Officer, Red Hat, Paul Doscher, CEO, JasperSoft, and Douglas Heintzman, Director of Technical Strategy for IBM Software Group, this session will discuss the state of affairs in the world of open source businesses and the challenges they face as they go against the proprietary commercial giants.
- Open Source Technical Discussion
Hosted by Nat Friedman VP Engineering and Collaboration, Novell, and Miguel de Icaza, VP Engineering, Mono Project and Ximian Co-Founder, this session will feature a technical discussionalong with tips on how to create a successful open source Project.
The Luncheon Keynote will be presented by Marc Fleury, Founder, Chairman and CEO, JBoss Group." If I were in Boston I'd be there. I hope there are some collaborative note-takers in attendence. Thanks go to Bob Zurek at IBM for telling me about this. He's blogged a note about it with a little more information.
