af83 sponsor and co organizer of Open World Forum 2012
By Marie 08-10-2012
Louis Montagne, af83 CEO and Vice-President of this year edition, says "we are totally in line with the subjects tackled and the values at the very heart of the Forum. This is the reason of our unfailing involvement in organizing and running it". The Forum’s format has undergone a number of changes last year, while he was Chairman. "I really wanted to make the event evolve, to be more comprehensive, pragmatic and accessible, while keeping its forum and think-tank dimension: a place to yield ideas, an event after which communities change and projects are formed. Hence, two dimensions were added to the conference: Code, to gather the best developers, and Experiment, to share with the general public who is often interested but kept apart."
So for the second year straight, three tracks will coexist, Think, Code and Experiment to put Open Source in everybody’s hands – decision maker, developer and general public – through various talks and demonstrations.
Taking place from October 11th to 13th, it’s a unique opportunity to meet the key actors of the domain and take part in in-depth reflections on Open digital Strategy, but also test the latest Open Source technologies, attend high-level talks or see artists’ performances.
You can register on the Open World Forum site http://www.openworldforum.org/user/register, and also find the detailed program on http://www.openworldforum.org/Programme. The event is free and open to everyone.
