Free Software and Open Source Symposium, 2011


The 10th “Free Software and Open Source Symposium”, commonly known as FSOSS, is an annual event held in Seneca College to discuss and share the latest trends in open source.

“It is an event aimed at bringing together industry, developers, educators and the community and any other interested parties to discuss open source, open web, and academic/industry partnerships.” – Source, FSOSS 2011

There were two presentations that I really wanted to attend (which I will discuss later in this paper) and I was left with two options – either pay the registration fee or go in as a volunteer. I decided to go for the latter as my current financial standings is not in my favour.

There are many presentations that were held during FSOSS 2011. I had the opportunity to attend a number of these presentations and I will talk about two of them.
