Off to OLF!



Hi folks,

I’ll be at Ohio LinuxFest this weekend. I’m looking forward to what I hear is an excellent conference as well as attending the sessions and meeting many of you. If you see me walking by, stop me and introduce yourself!


Silicon Valley Perl group

I attended the Silicon Valley Perl Meetup last night. Ian Kluft gave an excellent presentation on a “Preference Voting” module he has been working on for some time.

While this tool is an excellent way for a team to pick a place to go to lunch, this module could easily be used for “ranked choice” voting like what Alameda County in California uses.

To learn more about this Perl module, check out the page.

Going to OSCON

Hi folks, I’ll be in Portland, Oregon from Friday July 19 in the afternoon through Tuesday morning, July 23. If you are planning to be there, I’d like to meet you. Drop me a note at d at slashdotmedia dot com and we’ll set something up.



The Open World Forum 2013 Extends the Call for Participation

OWF2013CfPThe Call for Participation for the 2013 Open World Forum has been extended until the 31st of July. The Open World Forum is the premier European summit gathering political representatives, decision-makers and experts to debate on the technological, economical and social impacts that the Free and Open-Source technologies bring to market.

We have asked Pierre Queinnec, President of the 2013 Open World Forum, to tell us more about this edition.

The baseline for this edition is “Make it Happen!” and summarizes the focus on technological and industrial successes built on Free Software and Open Source. If you want to know how to build a successful free and open source strategy, and network with the people that make it happen on a global scale, then register now! OWF is a non-profit event and we expect this year 3000 attendees in Paris, France.

Last year we chaired the Open Forges Summit track. We look forward to going there again to update the audience about our advancement on Apache Allura development – the technology behind the SourceForge developer platform – and how that is helping EU-funded projects to succeed. For an example check out the opensourceprojects beta site powered by Allura.


Live from PyCon 2013

We’ve had a great time already meeting lots of SourceForge users at our booth at PyCon.  It’s great to meet developers using SourceForge, and telling people about all the new features at SourceForge.

We’re giving away SourceForge mugs, so if you’re here at PyCon come by today to get one!


If you’re not at PyCon, you can still watch all the talks streaming live at today and tomorrow (Mar 16 & 17, PST daytime hours).  Slides are also being posted at  Learn something new about Python today!
