December 2012 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - December 2012 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

With more than 60 speakers, five keynote addresses, a brand new workshop on Big Data and our first OW2 Projects Awards, OW2con'12 was the busiest OW2 annual conference ever! Congratulations to all the speakers and attendees who contributed to making the event a real success.

Our particular appreciation goes to all the speakers for having so easily and efficiently adopted the new 15 minutes format!  As you know, the conference was broadcasted live on Dailymotion. We are now busy editing this video stream and each presentation will soon be published on the speakers page here, stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the detailed program here and the pictures here and, for those of you who had the good luck to attend the event, please take 15 minutes to complete our satisfaction survey here.

Congratulations to the winners of our first ever OW2 Project Awards: Shelbie (Innovation Award), EasyBeans (Community Award), the ProActive CLIF Fractal integration (Technology Council Special Prize) and Bonita Open Solution (Market Award). 

In November we were also in Santa Clara, CA,  launching the CompatibleOne project at Cloud Expo West with a host of supporting partners which included Intel, Prologue, ComputeNext, UShareSoft and Cedexis (check out the pictures).

Thank you for your on-going support.

Cedric Thomas
