Flourish! Open Source Conference 2014 on April 5th
Until last week I hadn’t heard of the Flourish! Open Source Conference held by University of Illinois at Chicago.
Back in 2007 the UIC’s CS Department, the UIC Linux User’s Group and the UIC Association for Computing Machinery hosted their first Flourish! Conference on April 6th and 7th. The conference goal was to discuss on the impact of Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) in Open Source development.
The conference is used to promote the use and adoption of FLOSS by demonstrating the practical FLOSS applications in the business and academic world. If you are interested in learning more, register for the free Flourish! Conference here. Topics I find interesting at this conference include Elasticsearch usage with Web API, HTML 5 workshops and a hack-a-thon.
I won’t be able to attend the conference however, I would like to hear feedback from others who did go.
