Last week I was quite busy with the lswc’s talks. Sadly, I could only assist a few of them.
First of all, lets clarify what LSWC stands for. Libre Software Worl Conference is an event of open source related projects, where you can learn, assist to talks or even just know people. You can always find a lot of interesting people on this kind of places as well as a lot of nice talks. I found the Python Day quite interesting, as well as the independent talks, mostly given by SMEs and open source projects.
I personally attended (among others) the following ones:
- Guifi.net by gaueko
- Mysql optimization by Warp Networks (Victor Jimenez, CapitanGolo.)
- OpenStreetMaps, obiously by openstreetmap (Jaime Crespo)
- Developing android applications on python
- Open knowledge, or why open source software was invented on middle ages (Juan Freire).
- Introducing RedIs: key-value nosql database by NetNetics (Alberto gimeno)
I was myself a speaker in the lswc, presenting Furnivall, a framework for crowdscience we’re developing at institute of biocomputation and physics of complex systems.
We could not really expect the quantity of people that came to the conferences, it was amazing to see that much open source supporters in spain joint in our city, zaragoza. Dudes from libreOffice and kde, among with lots of people from SMEs related with opensource! We were delighted, and the talks were good enough, some of them could’ve had a little more technical level, but we can’t have everything, can’t we?
