✈ Join Me At Open World Forum

The conference landscape evolves constantly. Old events pass away, new ones arrive and it’s good to get pointers to know what’s worthwhile. I can recommend this year’s Open World Forum, happening in Paris on September 30 and October 1.It’s a volunteer-run conference for the open source and free software community and covers multiple tracks and events both for business and community interests.

Unusually for such a broad event, admission is completely free of charge and you’ll have the chance to listen to speakers such as James Governor, Eben Moglen, Matt Asay and many more. I’m honoured to be chairing the opening plenary session on September 30th.

With such a  broad and rich agenda and hosted in such an appealing and central location it’s easy to find reasons to attend and hard to see why not. Looking forward to seeing you there!

☞ Packaging Redux

  • This post, effectively a manifesto for the next generation of packaging, is well worth reading as Matt articulately describes the same issues that led the OpenSolaris team to develop IPS.
    His solution differs – not one ring to bind them all, but rather a decoupling of cooperating package management approaches so that appropriate solutions can address specific needs. This is a call to order that deserves a serious, collective, non-partisan response.
