TimesOpen 2012: Open Source Science Fair
Thursday, November 15, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM (EST)
New York, United States
Open Source Science Fair
Every year, the TimesOpen series brings together the NYC developer community for technical talks on various topics. We've enjoyed great speakers, insightful discussions and a lot of live coding. This year we're trying something new: an open source science fair and symposium.
To kick off the night, we'll have our science fair. Contributors to the open source community will tell us a little bit about their projects and set up areas to show off their work. We won't have any model volcanoes, potato clocks or flatworms — but we will have booths, lightning talks and pull requests.
After the exhibitors, our speakers (so far, Jeremy Ashkenas of The New York Times, Rebecca Murphey of Bocoup and Zach Holman of GitHub) will talk about how to launch, scale and contribute to open source projects. No science fair is complete without awards, so we'll end the night with some ribbons and prizes!
Oh, and come hungry — dinner will be served! We look forward to seeing you at the Times building.
