The organizing committee is sincere in its belief that attendees will not choose us unless there are strong reasons to do so. After all, this is not a period of limited resources, and there are plenty of invitations for open-source events and conferences. So why do we think you should take the time to participate in OSPO Summit, a first-time organized event?
How to know others’ minds? It is a challenging task. For those closest and familiar, we may be able to identify their thoughts through experience and shared culture. But for unfamiliar groups, it is almost impossible. However, is there any way we can do that? That is to observe and explore the culture and social environment in which the group lives and thus to judge an individual in a general way. Many strengths embrace open source. Efforts from individuals, businesses, governments, think tanks, universities, and others are all essential social strengths.

Based on local characteristics, participation in open source as a unit represented by enterprises is a unique and powerful indication. Based on numerous sociologists’ studies, it is reasonable to assume that collectively participating in open source is the main local approach.  Then participation in such a way requires appropriate theoretical and practical guidance, especially for the open-source project office. For our peers who care about the Open Source Project Office, after a series of events  and lectures , we believe that, as an emerging function, the Open Source Project Office  is a new professional community that is vertical and crosses knowledge backgrounds. So we wanted to take a two-dimensional approach to ensure that participants’ understanding of the Open Source Project Office was not elementary. For the more weakly related or unrelated potential interested participants, we hope to see you at the OSPOCon  held early next year.
When you see this invitation, it will not surprise you, especially to see the following characteristics.
As part of the warm reminder, we would like participants to do some preparation. Other attendees also made preparations, as this is part of the summit itself, meaning that we focused more on the preparations before the summit. Such as for our LFAPAC OSPO SIG preparation team , the process of interacting with each other and being hands-on is itself the essence of the Open Source Project Office. And if you haven’t participated in the preparations, then we recommend that:
As the organizers of the Summit, we would wishfully assume what you would receive for your participation, but we would prefer to design a structure, a platform for people to communicate and gain unexpected knowledge. However, we think attendees will at least get:
