OSCON 2012 Proposals

  • Michael: OSCON is the largest open source conference. There were ~4,000 people last year, and they have a call open for presentations. There are a few tracks that we may find opportunity with OpenMRS: 1) health care track, 2) open source community, 3) business and open source, 4) open source platform and 5) programming languages.
    • Michael: The audience is already tech-minded. There are individuals trying to integrate open source into health care as well.
    • Michael: I can send links of presentations from last year.
    • Michael: The call for papers is 12 January 2012
  • Burke: What are some of the benefits:
    • Michael: Larger open source projects present at OSCON, and we've received some help from people I've met there. It's a good way to form stronger relationships with project.
  • Hamish: What are some of the ideas?
    • Michael: 1) The history of the community and collaboration project. Going back to the beginning and showing how we scaled up. 2) Modular Architecture: focusing more on building a platform rather than be an "out of the box" product. Looking at it from a technical perspective and how to organise that. 3) Open Architecture and interoperability work.
  • Dawn: Are we agreeing that this is worth pursuing? Even submitting one project.
    • Hamish: I think it's worth pursuing. People are very interested, and it's important to get those nuances out there (we're not Linux, or mozilla, etc)
    • Ben: Who is funding this?
      • Michael: Presenters have waived costs.
  • Dawn: Ben, Mike, and Michael could all present something or are interested in presenting.
  • Michael: Let's bring this up again on the call in 1-2wks.
