July 2022 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - July-August 2022 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

We would like to thank all our community for the great moments spent together in June. After OW2con'22 and all the interesting content and animated debates you brought, our physical event in Paris was a delicious moment, particularly our 15-year anniversary community event: more than 40 of our friends were there, some from Italy, Belgium and Poland, and passionate discussions lasted well into the night!

All the OW2 team was present: a way to remind you that each of us is accessible, none is hidden behing the scene. You are welcome to fix technical issues with our sysadmin, discuss project strategy with our CTO, or interact with our marketing manager or community developer to synchronize communication. Each of us talks in the name of OW2 and contributes to our identity: this also makes OW2 unique.

More than ever, OW2 appears as a digital common, a safe harbour for those who believe in digital sovereignty, care for personal data protection and believe in the power of open source: the coming months will see us more involved in open science, open source in government institutions, methodology related to open source governance and adoption in global organizations... Open source and cooperation have to go mainstream: they are the basis of our freedom and independence in such an uncertain world.

So, sure this autumn will be full of changes and announcements: but first of all, let us wish you a great summer holiday!

Thanking you for making OW2 shine,

Pierre-Yves Gibello
