Join us for OSI's first State of the Source Summit!

We need open source now, more than ever. Now is the time to foster global connections, knowledge exchange and cross-border collaboration. Only by working together can we make bigger strides in solving some of the world’s most pressing problems. The mission of OSI has always been to advocate for the benefits of open source and to build bridges among different constituencies in the open source community. Our goal is to establish State of Source as a platform to bring together open source projects, communities and advocates from around the world.

We want to thank our supporters of this event, without whom this endeavor would have been far more challenging! Our amazing sponsors for the State of the Source Summit include RedHat, Indeed, Eclipse Foundation, Bloomberg, XWiki, Zup, Bitergia, Command Prompt, Salesforce, LexPan Law, Blindside Networks/BigBlueButton, and DigitalOcean.

Please mark your calendars for September 9-11 now and visit www.opensource.org/stateofthesource to register for this exciting event!

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.
