Tuesday, July 28, 2020 - 12:05 by Jadon Ortlepp

Open Source technology is helping organisations worldwide overcome challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether used to facilitate the exchange of information between resource providers and those in need, as seen in China, or for the development of a tool to estimate the impact of COVID-19 on local communities, as seen in the US, it is clear that open source technology is playing a pivotal role in helping individuals, communities, organisations and governments circumvent and control the coronavirus.


OW2online’20, this year's virtual conference of the OW2 Open Source Community, will bring together experts from around the world who focus on open source software and its role in modern corporate information systems. The central theme of OW2con this year is: "The Challenges of Full-Stack Open Source". This background theme refers to the challenges appearing today for decision makers who consider evolving their information systems with open source software. As open source has become mainstream it is not limited to the operating systems and infrastructure middleware.
