Back from FOSS4G 2019

It’s been almost 2 weeks since FOSS4G 2019 has crossed the finishing line. And it was a truly inspiring event with many participants from all cultures and interests.

We do not need to repeat that the local organizers did a great job. That we had an awesome night in a truly impressive parliament building. That there have been so many wonderful people with brilliant ideas.
And also that there were too many good presentations in parallel to go and see them all live.

So we will just repeat that thanks to a quiet but highly efficient group of people of the CCC Video Operation Center all talks were not only streamed live but are also available online now. For example ours which are listed below.

Our talks

Sponsoring FOSS4G

We have supported FOSS4G 2019 as a silver sponsor. For us, the whole FOSS4G stack and environment is the basic building block of what we work and live for every day. We couldn’t do what we do if there were not all the other people, organizations and projects out there who make the whole FOSS4G ecosystem what it is: a possibility to build a future in which we benefit all from one another and collaboratively tackle the big challenges of our time. And ultimately, the FOSS4G conference is the place where this vision takes shape.
