Individual Members: Candidates Profiles


Individuals make Open Source. Companies make Open Source business ecosystem. OW2 is a major opportunity for developers to be part of the Open Source ecosystem.

As OW2 individual members representative for 2 years, I've been trying to make OW2 the place to be for developers, and find the right equilibrium between individuals and companies interests. Working tightly with technology council, I'm applying this year again to represent individual members interests at the board as well as proposing new challenges for highlighting developers projects and skills.
