Why We Code

Paul Ramsey’s keynote address from FOSS4G 2017, Why We Code, is now online. Open source software is everywhere around us, and this video presentation provides insight into the economics of open source ecosystems. Different people contribute to open source projects for many reasons, and his presentation dispels numerous myths.

FOSS4G (Free and Open Source Software 4 Geospatial) is the world’s largest annual conference dedicated to open source GIS software, drawing attendees from over 40 countries. The event rotates to a different continent each year. This year’s event was hosted in Boston, and 2018 will be a first for the African continent, hosted in Dar es Salaam.

FOSS4G 2017’s Post Conference Information is worth visiting, and we are starting to see a trickle of conference videos being uploaded on Vimeo.
