Datacenter Barometer: The Next Generation of Open Source Development
This week, for one brief moment in time, my home town has become the center of the open source universe.
No, this isn’t egoism talking–it’s all about the 6th International Conference on Open Source Systems, hosted at the University of Notre Dame.
This is the first time the OSS conference has been held in North America, having been in Europe after getting its start in Genova, Italy in 2005. Nor is this like any other open source conference you may have attended or heard of: these are academics doing serious research on the properties of open source development, communities, and products.
During the three-day conference, researchers from all around the world have gathered here to discuss their insights on what makes open source tick. To help them, they’ve invited notable figures in the open source community to speak on various aspects of open source. I’ve likened it to the penguins speaking directly to those strange folks in parkas just over the ridge, but in reality, it’s much more collaborative than that.
