We have already announced that we will have a stand at Open Source Experience in Paris on the 9th and 10th of November. However, we did not say why we are so happy to be able to join this new event.
Open Source Experience aims to bring the entire open source ecosystem together for two dynamic days. “Entire” really means entire: From communities like Mageia to all sorts of companies, from students to experts, from journalists to politicians, from investors to researchers and inventors and much more, it is for anyone with a dedication to open source. Note that it is not just about open-source software, but also about open source hardware and network solutions, consultancy, training, cloud, data centres, security, AI, IoT, etc, more than can be mentioned.
Many interested people will visit the event, and certainly not only from France. The event will be hybrid: physical meetings on the 9th and 10th of November 2021 and a digital event platform, so (international) visitors who would otherwise be unable to attend can participate. At least one of the speakers happens to be a Mageia contributor and board member in his free time, Bruno Cornec. He will give two talks, one about an alternative for REST, the other about how (and how not) to open source a project.
Open Source Experience is an excellent opportunity to introduce Mageia to people who would potentially enjoy helping to make Mageia, but also to see what is going on in the open-source world, to learn and discover new developments, meet with other people and projects and to make the open-source ecosystem stronger.
