Open Source Fireside Chat - Jenny Wagner, LF Public Health; David A. Wheeler, The Linux Foundation; Rob Bredow, ILM; Ruth Suehle, O3DE; Eric Bourque, Autodesk; Moderated by David Morin, The Academy Software Foundation
Registration is required to attend. Register here!

Open Source touches all facets of daily life, from the movies we watch, to how our energy grids operate to operating systems in our computers and more.  Open Source continues to shape our world in obvious and not so obvious ways. For the motion picture industry, we rely heavily on open source software to create cinematic masterpieces, but that just scratches the surface on the outlook of open source.

In this keynote panel, moderated by Academy Software Foundation Executive Director, David Morin, we will hear from open source industry experts on the impact of open source. This panel will feature leaders who will touch on industry-specific challenges, such as public health crises, as well as important issues facing the broad open source ecosystem, such as security and supply chain vulnerabilities.
