OSCON 2010

OW2 attended OSCON, the reference event in the global open source community, for the third year running. On the exhibition floor, booth 808, OW2 was promoting the Open Source Cloudware Initiative with the Initiative's poster and a demo.

This year at OSCON, cloud computing was a hot topic. The launch of the OpenStack project promoting truly open source software for the cloud made the headlines. OW2 swiftly followed through by announcing its plan to support open stack with the Open Source Cloudware Initiative. Check out our press release. The move was well received and provided OW2 visibility in some blogs and the on-line press.

That same week we will also attended the Community Leadership Summit 2010, exchanging views and best practices in a very interesting and friendly gathering of open source and community activists.
