Join us next week for Open Source 101, a one-day conference where we'll dive into the latest around FOSS virtual & augmented reality, and look at the implications of enabling automated testing upstream!

Designed for developers, technologists, students, and decision makers alike, this educational event will touch on different tools and processes that are integral to navigating different aspects of open source. It's an excellent opportunity for novice learners but also for those more experienced to reinforce any insights that they might have.

Taking place entirely online, sessions will be live-streamed on Tuesday, March 29. You can catch two of Collabora's very own giving talks in the afternoon. Here's a look at what each will be discussing.

Collabora @ Open Source 101

FOSS virtual & augmented reality
Presented by Jakob Bornecrantz – Tuesday, March 29 at 12:30 PM EST.

In this talk Jakob will cover Monado and Khronos’ OpenXR standard, and give an overview about the current state of open source VR and what lies ahead. He'll also detail some of the recent work done in Monado as part of two internships here at Collabora.

Upstream code quality: Making open source work out of the box
Presented by Guillaume Tucker – Tuesday, March 29 at 2:30 PM EST.

Many open source projects are used as building blocks in products. Full software stacks for commercial products using them tend to be heavily tested. They typically include downstream changes and fixes. Ideally, those eventually get sent upstream although this can easily become a second priority compared to releasing products. This talk will look into the implications of enabling automated testing upstream: What are the benefits? How can it be done? Which projects are already doing it?

If you're all set for Open Source 101, why not drop by to say hello! We would be happy to have a chat after one of our talks or you can find us in the Networking Lounge.

Tune in!
