It’s been more than 20 years since the very first OSPO came into existence at Sun Microsystems, and in that time the idea of what an OSPO can do to support the worldwide Open Source movement from within a single organization has been implemented in various innovative ways, but aside from the TODO Group’s work to document best practices for in Technology companies, there has been next to no networking between OSPOs…until now! Learn how Academia & Municipal Governments are networking to bootstrap effective Open Source engagements to vastly improve their service offerings through the OSPO++ Network! Open Source is different for public institutions, and those differences make pooling resources and lessons learned essential for success. Imagine a world where effective translation of research actually improves the lives of local citizens, and enacting public policy is accomplished with the cooperation of diverse constituencies, and infrastructure is transparently developed & maintained. This talk will help you understand available resources and how to get involved whether you’re working in a traditional Technology company OSPO, or for an NGO, University or other organization adjacent to the OSPO++ movement, and how we can work together to transform these critical institutions.
