The conference provides opportunities for the FOSS4G community to learn, explore, share, and collaborate on the latest ideas and information.

FOSS4G NA is all about community. Contributors, adopters, users, extenders, teachers, service providers, consumers and business and research organizations gather to share their expertise and learn from each other. FOSS4G delivers camaraderie and networking opportunities that lead to synergies in the community, as well as opportunities to give and receive help on specific technical issues or to generate business opportunities.
