September 2009 Newsletter

\[OW2 Newsletter - September 2009 - From the OW2 Management Office] 

Dear OW2 Members, Dear All,

For this newsletter, here is a global perspective on OW2:

Brazil. In August, OW2 was busy in Brazil and scored great success thanks to Strategic Members Bull, INRIA and SERPRO and Corporate Members EBM Websourcing, Konsultex and UNIFOR. See the report and pictures here . As President Lula declared his intention to position Brazil at the forefront of open source in the world, we realized that developing our membership in this country was a strategic objective for OW2. Note the Demoiselle Framework

China. In September, with the help of the OW2 China Local Chapter, we will hold a series of meetings and presentations to promote and grow the OW2 community in China. The Award Ceremony of our Programming Contest will take place in Guyang, China, Sept. 19-20. If you want to sponsor the event, this is a unique opportunity for exposure in China and for connecting with top students from world-class universities.

Europe. At least three important events for OW2 in Europe in the coming months: first, the Open World Forum, in Paris, Oct. 1-2, where OW2 will be center stage in the FLOSS Community Summit, the Open Innovation Summit and, of course, the OW2 Experience Day. And in November, the OW2 Europe Local Chapter organizes fOSSa the first European conference specifically dedicated to open source for the academic world.

North America. Things are moving in North America for OW2. Our presence at OSCON for the second year running was quite a success and we started discussions to further cooperate with our friends at the Open Solutions Alliance, an association of open source companies with a strong foofhold in North America.

That's all for now; thank you for your support!
