Calgary Open Source Systems Festival: The largest free technology event in Calgary

This coming weekend is the Calgary Open Source Systems Festival (COSSFest 2007). For those open source lovers and those curious about open source, this is a must attend event. By the way, I will be giving two talks: one on Machine Learning Development with Perl and another on Open Source Business Analytics.

Here is the official press release:


COSSFEST 07 (Calgary Open Source Systems Festival) will bring together professionals, students and enthusiasts who share a common interest in Open Source software.

This one-day conference and expo will be made up of speakers and hourly workshops.

Booths featuring hardware vendors, software companies, services companies, and (of course) user groups will be on hand. This event is the largest free technology event in Calgary!


COSSFEST 07 will publicize open source systems and educate the community at large on how open source systems can satisfy their software needs. This is a great opportunity for visionaries, developers, technologists, entrepreneurs, programmers, CIOs, CTOs, educators, not-for-profit leaders, hackers and average users to meet, network and learn.
