FOSSASIA’16 Singapore

FOSSASIA is the premier Free and Open Source technology event in Asia for developers, start-ups, and contributors. Projects at FOSSASIA range from open hardware, to design, graphics and software. This year it took place in Singapore at the Science Center. This was my first visit to Singapore.

I met quite a number of people who shared their opensource contribution and experiences. I gave a talk about my Outreachy project and attended a couple of others too. The event spanned over three days.

Day 1 was about OpenTech and IoT,

Day 2 was dedicated to Internet, Society, Community

On Day 3, I explored OpenTech and Workshops

I learned how to communicate and share one’s knowledge in front of an audience. I realized that even though people belonged to different countries, what united them was thirst for knowledge and passion for open source 😀

One talk that I can clearly recall was about how companies like Apple, Xiaomi and Samsung manufacture at scale. It is quite thought provoking even now.

Here are some pictures from the event:
