Free Software and Open Source Symposium Update Thu, Oct 4. 2007
This year, FSOSS run from Thursday, October 25 to Friday, October 26 and features talks by some of the open source community's best and brightest. I think this event is an absolute steal at $40 (advance price; $60 at the door) or $20 in advance if you are a student. This includes both lunches, a reception, and two full days of presentations.
As an incentive to register sooner rather than latter, all entries received by the end of the day on October 8 (Thanksgving Monday in Canada) will be entered in a draw for an iPod Nano. See the FSOSS site for details: http://fsoss.senecac.on.ca)
This year I have the pleasure of co-chairing the Seneca Free Software and Open Source Symposium (FSOSS 2007). We've just opened the registration for this 6th edition of the event, which will run October 25-26 in Toronto. The speaker list includes many familiar names from projects such as OpenOffice.Org, OLPC, Python, Mozilla, DemocracyTV/Miro, and Creative Commons, as well as companies and organizations including IBM, SAP, Nokia, Environment Canada, and Microsoft. Check out the full details of this (very affordable!) event at http://fsoss.senecac.on.ca/
