Once again, the CCSL is present at FISL! At the CCSL booth, we made contact with several members of the FLOSS community and presented the many development projects of the Center. A pleasant surprise of this year is the presence of a large number of high school students, learning more about FLOSS and, perhaps, preparing to go on to a carreer on Computer Science (always with FLOSS, of course!).
Don't miss the chance to meet Simon Phipps, one of the most influential persons in the FLOSS community, responsible for the open-sourcing of the JVM and Solaris.
He will be at the CCSL next Monday the 27th and will talk about "Open Source Concepts and Realities", focusing on two main themes: "Open Source Means Business Value" and "Open Source Communities".
