OSI at OSCON 2016

This year, OSCON moves to Austin, Texas and we’ll be there! (Plus, we’re attending Community Leadership Summit the weekend before the conference.) Join us from May 16th to 19th, as we’re delighted to announce that OSI will once more have a booth in the Expo Hall. We would really love to see you there!

Rather than the usual 20% discount for OSI members, OSCON have generously given us a 30% discount code for our member to use when purchasing Gold, Silver, and Bronze conference passes.

Let's meet the 2016 OSI Board of Directors candidates!

The nominations for the Open Source Initiative board of directors closed on February 15th and we are delighted to share our list of candidates with you!

We are excited that so many people want to take part, and as such would like to introduce you to the candidates before voting opens on February 29th.

To promote and protect open source software and communities...

For over 20 years the Open Source Initiative (OSI) has worked to raise awareness and adoption of open source software, and build bridges between open source communities of practice. As a global non-profit, the OSI champions software freedom in society through education, collaboration, and infrastructure, stewarding the Open Source Definition (OSD), and preventing abuse of the ideals and ethos inherent to the open source movement.

Open source software is made by many people and distributed under an OSD-compliant license which grants all the rights to use, study, change, and share the software in modified and unmodified form. Software freedom is essential to enabling community development of open source software.
