The Great Open Source Debate

About this event

Tune in as we bring together the greatest minds in open source for a no-holds-barred conversation on the biggest trends in the field today.

We are dedicated to sharing open-source knowledge

The debate follows an 'agree or disagree' format where, for each statement, the experts need to talk it out until we get some answers.

Here’s an example:

  • Open Source creates innovation, not finished products
  • Open Source is not beginner-friendly and has a steep learning curve

The experts will weigh in and the audience will get a chance to join the conversation in the live chat.

That’s right, this is an audience-first, interactive session. The more knowledge sharing, the better.

💡 Whether you’re new to open source or a seasoned veteran, this session will give you plenty of insights to take back with you.

📅 October 26th

⏲ 5pm CEST | 11am EST | 8:30pm IST

📍 Online

PS: Please feel free to share this session with your friends who are also interested in open source. Everyone is welcome.

PSS: If you can’t join the live session but still want to get involved, register anyway and we’ll send you the recording.
