The Gandi Community

Open Source Summit 2019—Gandi was there!

The 2019 Open Source Summit (OSS) took place at the Centre des Congrès in Lyon, France from October 28–30, 2019.

It’s the main conference for developers and other technophiles and the Open Source community.

The use of innovative open source solutions is of primary importance to us at Gandi, whether for collaboration, information sharing, or learning the latest techonlogies.

Two Gandians were able to attend the conference.

What is the Open Source Summit?

While the name of the conference doesn’t explicitly mention Linux, the event was organized by the Linux Foundation and the program is 99% oriented towards Linux.

Besides presentations, the organizers also put together some networking events to put members of the community in touch.

The strength of the program is that it’s accessible to people at every level of knowledge. Certain presenations were really introductions to Linux while others were more specific and advanced.

Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, opened and offiated the conference as master of ceremonies each morning in the big amphiteater.

All presentations were filmed and are available on Linux Foundation’s YouTube channel.
