NASA Open Source Summit
Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 9:00 AM - Wednesday, March 30, 2011 at 5:00 PM (PDT)
We've secured a larger venue to allow for additional in-person participants! Register to attend at the NASA Ames Research Park while tickets are still available.
You're invited to help define the future of open source at NASA.
The Summit will bring together leaders from the open source community, NASA developers, and NASA policymakers to lay the foundation for improving how NASA develops, releases, and uses open source software.
If you have the time, we have a spot for you to participate remotely.
All speakers will be livestreamed, and all discussions will happen both in-person and virtually, with the outputs of all discussions woven together. It will be two intense days of enlightened learning, invigorating discussion, and focused achievement.
This is not your standard conference. It's a Focus Forum.
What is a Focus Forum?
A Focus Forum is an inter-agency collaborative event hosted by an agency for the purpose of innovating new thinking and capturing solutions on a specific topic. This deeper focus is the next stage in the evolution of the popular OpenGov Community Summits that were co-hosted by the DOT, USDA, NASA, Treasury, EPA, and GSA throughout 2010. You can learn more on the Open Forum Foundation website. If you are interested in hosting one at your agency, please contact Wayne Burke.
