  • The membership of the Open Government Partnership has grown from 8 countries to 60 countries in just 23 months. Why? Because the desire for honest, efficient and effective government is universal, and is now more urgent than ever. In many places, public confidence in government is at all-time lows, and people are demanding a voice. More and more governments around the world recognize that to keep up, we must open up. And to open up, we must innovate.

    We now have the know-how and the technology to reinvent the relationship between citizens and the state. This is by no means an easy task, but when we look around, we see that good ideas come from everywhere. That is what the Open Government Partnership is all about. This October 31-November 1, 2013 we would like to invite you to join us in London to celebrate recent innovations in open government and challenge ourselves to stay ahead of the curve.

  • Gary O’Neall, founder of Source Auditor & Rami Sass, CEO of White Source will discuss consequences of improperly managed open source components and what can be done to prevent technical and compliance failures and missed business opportunities.

    Source Auditor is a provider of analysis and audits for open source since 2003. White Source is an automated cloud-based SaaS solution for complete life-cycle management of open source components.

    "Since 2003 we have provided hundreds of software audits and in only one occasion have we not found a “surprise” – some software that was either not disclosed or was not known by the software vendor. Although most of the findings are relatively benign, some have very significant impact requiring re-engineering of software, or resulting in lost opportunities."
    - Gary O’Neall, Founder of Source Auditor

    On the Agenda:
    • What to expect from an open source audit
    • Real case studies illustrating typical findings
    • Best practices for managing open source

  • The initiative was launched by Neelie Kroes' Young Advisors with the support from DG Connect at the European Commission. Sounds fancier than it really is. We're just a bunch of young people with a dream of a world where all sort of crazy ideas are given a chance to change the world. But it's not really about us.

    Actually, it's about all of us. Our future. Technology is shaping our lives, but we're letting a minority decide what and how we use it for. We can do better than just sharing and liking stuff. We can bring our crazy ideas to life, build things that will bring joy to others.
