Event description

Description

Sunderland Digital aims to bring together and enrich our burgeoning digital and creative community through a series of informal monthly meetups and talks.

Open Source Software

Open source software has been around for a long time, but it is reaching a new stage in its evolution. Open source has been facilitating much of the internet, our mobile phones and all kinds of weird and wonderful hardware for decades, but open source communities often go unseen, and the real power of open source untapped.

Adam Hill, CEO at Consult and Design, has been involved with open source communities for almost two decades and brings his experience and knowledge to explore a brief history of open source, how open source communities work (or don't!) and discuss how collaboration, transparency and community development is transforming the way we live and work.
