Join us to celebrate the 5th Annual Open Source Festival 2015 on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, 12:00pm-5:00pm, Campus Center Ballroom, Uptown Campus

The Open Source Festival is a celebration of the vitality and creativity of Open Source communities. There will be variaty of roundtable discussion, demonstrations, workshops, tutorials and hackerspace demonstrations; focusing on projects, applications, and techniques of Open Source technology and community practices.

The audience will be a diverse group of open source enthusiasts from academia, industry and government.

New Format This Year:

The format this year will take advantage of a large open ballroom where presenters will directly interact with small groups of attendees, as they wander around  through stations. As a presenter, you can reserve a station for any length of time, for example 30 minutes, 2 hours or you can have a station for the entire day. Submit your out-of-the-box ideas for different activities and corresponding durations. The goal is to create a dynamic and informal environment for open discussions.


This will be our 5th year celebrating this event; last year we had over 200 people in attendance. We expect even more this year.

This event is organized by UAlbany ASIS&T (Student Chapter) at the College of Computing and Information, University at Albany, State University of New York.
