[OW2 Newsletter - June 2024 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

Should I have a single word to say, it would be: OW2Con! Next week, June 11/12 at Orange Gardens Innovation Center, Paris-Châtillon. Not too late to join the 200+ visitors, just register - for free, thanks to our sponsors.

And we are happy to announce two last minute sponsors: Linagora, and Synaltic. Never too late! (well, a little bit, now).

OW2con is of course a great place for people interested in FOSS advocacy to meet: and I would like to highlight another good FOSS advocacy story, from FSFE, quite original because youth-oriented: "Spark children's interest in coding", after the now famous Ada & Zangemann story (with a film to follow: you may help with a donation). Children, sure, are the future of FOSS!

And I think this is all, because we still have a lot of hard work to make OW2Con a great event :)

Eager to meeting you in-person at OW2Con'24,

Pierre-Yves Gibello
