XOXO is an experimental festival celebrating independently produced art and technology.
Exploring innovative solutions to tech diversity and inclusion. As technology continues to affect every sector of business and innovation, there’s a growing concern for the lack inclusion across the tech ecosystem: from the pipeline to the boardroom to Capitol Hill. Entrepreneurs, corporations, education facilities, policy makers and investment firms are all ready to do something about it. The Tech Inclusion workshops and conference will provide a safe, informative environment to explore comprehensive answers.
The Open Source Developers’ Conference is a not-for-profit conference covering all aspects of Open Source Technology, from software and systems to open data. For the past 11 years OSDC has been held across Australia and New Zealand, and in 2015 will be hosted for the first time in Tasmania, from October 27-29 at the Wrest Point Convention Centre in Hobart.
The focus for OSDC 2015 is Opening Up For A Better World. Open source software, hardware and standards facilitate higher quality technology, better security and faster innovation; open data allows us to better discover and understand the world we live in; open government aims to ensure that citizens can participate in their democracy; open access publishing exists to spread knowledge and allow that knowledge to be built upon. Open by design is the best default.
