This year, OW2con, the annual conference of the OW2 open source community, is going to be an online event. On June 17-18, OW2online’20, the name of the virtual event, will include one day of online presentations and 1/2 day of break-out sessions. OW2online’20 will offer attendees dozens of presentations and the ability to chat with the speakers.
There will be an additional face-to-face Community Day in November: besides a high-level program of keynote addresses, roundtables, and the OW2con Best Project Awards, the Community Day will provide ample time for networking and informal discussions.
The central theme of OW2con this year is: “Keep the conversation going!“.
This theme refers to the challenges appearing today for decision makers who consider evolving their information systems with open source software. As open source has become mainstream it is not limited to the operating systems and infrastructure middleware. Open source software across the whole information system is what we call “full stack open source”. What is at stake is more than just deploying Linux servers; it is about defining an architecture, engaging with the whole open source ecosystem and establishing a mature governance system.OW2 website
Engineering is proud sponsor of the event and Knowage, the open source suite powered by Engineering, will join the event thanks to the speech “Boost dataviz with Python“, presenting the new Knowage R/Python widget that allows to embed R and Python scripts directly within a cockpit filling a gap between datavisualization and datascience. With this widget, datascientists are able to integrate python facilities in a heterogeneous and multi-source environment and to present advanced analytics to a broader audience. The speech is scheduled for Wednesday 17th of June at 11.45 AM CEST.
