Join ictQATAR and Creative Commons Qatar for a workshop on Open Source Development, Saturday, September 24 – Sunday, September 25 at the W Doha. The workshop will run from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. both days. Workshop participants will receive a general overview of how open source works in development, including case studies of innovations in the field, then will engage in hands-on coding and development sessions that will result in a collaborative open source project.
This workshop is geared towards individuals with development experience, and is open to all web and software developers in Qatar, including those working in the IT industry, government, the public sector and students. It will focus on:
• Helping developers use the latest Open Source Software
• Working with developers to create sustainable software and business models
• Allowing for networking between local developers on their projects/business and global software development
• Working with startup founders who are also developers, attack their targets
• Showing and exploring new technologies
The Open Source Developers Workshop will be facilitated by Aiki Lab, a Singaporean company created to work globally to create technology which makes the quality of life better for people. It is co-founded by Bassel Safadi and Jon Phillips in order to build upon the software, Aiki Framework (http://aikiframework.org). The company has created numerous open source projects such as Creative Commons Asia, Creative Commons Arab World, Joi Ito’s People Project, helped to launch the startup Creation Mix, and continues to be the steward for its rapidly evolving software.
The workshop is free, but advance registration is required and space is limited. Register at opensourceqatar.eventbrite.com
