OW2con 2019 is the annual open source event bringing together the OW2 community, technology experts, software architects, IT project managers and decision-makers from around the world. The conference will be hosted by the Orange Gardens Innovation Center, Paris-Châtillon, on June 12-13, 2019.
The central theme of OW2con 2019 is: “Open Source Toward Industry Maturity”. Indeed, with open source becoming mainstream, IT developers, vendors, users and even open source organisations such as OW2 have to adapt. Today, open source projects are becoming increasingly competitive and all IT developers, vendors and users must have an open source strategy.
During OW2con 2019, The Document Foundation and LibreOffice Online will be presented during two different talks:
- Breakout Session – Adding LibreOffice To Your Online Solution, managed by Michael Meeks (Collabora), Philippe Hemmel (Arawa) and Thorsten Behrens (CIB), on Wednesday June 12, from 1:45pm to 3:45pm.
LibreOffice Online can be integrated into cloud solutions, as in the case of Nextcloud, ownCloud, Pydio and Seafile. The software is 100% open source and can be the perfect solution for GDPR issues in organizations. During the session it will be possible to get an overview of the application, and ask both technical and business-related questions.
- Talk – Introducing The Document Foundation, by Simon Phipps (TDF/OSI), on Thursday June 13, from 9:45am to 10:00am.
The Document Foundation is one of OW2’s newest Affiliate organisations, and is a global charity based in Germany that works to promote open source productivity tools. Its flagship project, LibreOffice, is available across major desktop platforms and continues the fourth decade of impact from the code that started life as Star Writer on CP/M.
