A World-wide Open Source Summit: Build your local community, while engaging the global community.
The State of the Source Summit invites open source communities of practice from around the world to organize and contribute to a global conversation on the current state of open source software: non-technical issues that foster development and community, the licenses that enable collaboration, the practices that promote contribution, and the issues confronting cooperation.
- Share the current state of open source licenses: understanding their value and impediments to further adoption.
- Identify current, non-technical, issues affecting open source software, development, and communities through the lenses of developers, companies, and projects.
- Conceptualize and plan for what the future may hold for open source software as a community and the Open Source Initiative as an organization.
