The 5th edition of the Paris Open Source Summit is taking place on 10 and 11 December 2019 at the Docks de Paris. This is Europe’s leading event dedicated to the fields of Open Source, free software and open innovation. It came about through the merger between Solutions Linux and the Open World Forum, two iconic events in the sphere of free software and Open Source. Its purpose is to highlight the technological innovations, latest developments and economic dynamism of this digital sector’s solutions and its societal impact.
“Open Source is now everywhere! (…) Today, Open Source is now central to the technology strategy and governance of big groups, start-ups, public services, SMEs and mid-cap companies alike: an extraordinary acceleration found at all levels and in all projects. Every day, a huge number of companies appreciate the benefits they derive from Open Source, now in terms of not only budget but also solidity, openness, a developmental dynamic and independent decision-making (…). Today, the paradigm has changed in that these companies now see how they can make use of these technologies and innovations to serve their business, while contributing to a better world. “Open Source: Innovation for good” is the journey we are offering you with this new edition of the Paris Open Source Summit, exploring the best Open Source technologies and innovations and how they can be used. “– POSS19 press release-
