More speakers confirmed for Open Source Junction 5

speaker line up

We’ve got a great variety of talks lined up for Open Source Junction 5 next month. We’re still finalising the programme, but here’s some teasers:

We’ve got Sander van der Waal from the Open Knowledge Foundation who’ll be talking about CKAN and public sector open data.

From LocalGovDigital we’ve got Phil Rumens, who’ll be looking at how we can overcome the barriers to adoption for OSS in local government.

Malcolm Newbury is coming to talk about Open Source in the NHS, and how Hackdays can be a useful activity for public sector organisations wanting to get to grips with what’s possible.

I’m also very pleased to announce that Simon Phipps will be joining us from the Open Source Initiative and talking about… well you’ll just have to wait and see!

We’ve also got a European perspective on Open Source in the public sector, with Gijs Hillenius from  the JoinUp initiative and Mike Holcombe, who’ll be sharing what was learned from the OSEPA project.

We’re still working on confirming folks from central government… we’ll let you know more soon!

If this has whetted your appetite, go sign up on our Eventbrite page. The event is free for public sector workers.
