The Australian Open Source Industry & Community Census 2007

In September 2007, Waugh Partners launched the first national research project to study companies and contributors involved in the Australian Open Source industry and community, aiming to better understand the strength of Open Source in Australia, the economic potential for the broader Australian ICT industry, our skills capacity, and the symbiotic relationship between the Open Source industry and community around it.

Jeff and Pia will present a sneak preview of the Census Report, with findings of particular interest to the community from the Australian Open Source Industry & Community Census 2007, and a promotional campaign plan to keep Open Source in the news throughout 2008.

Stand up and be counted!
