OSOM – Open Source Open Mind – is an event held annually, organized by  Pensacola Tech and Omeron Technologies. First edition was held on 30th October 2010 at Cluj Napoca, Romania and it was a success. OSOM is design to reveal the general Open Source and Free Software concepts, the differences between the two trends and the types of licenses used in this area, to demonstrate that Open Source and Free Software is a valid replacement or complement to proprietary software.

  • Widely used applications on open systems
  • Open source Caching Solutions
  • Things they say open source tools cannot do…Performance in testing by Jmeter

This year OSOM brings community leaders like Mozilla Foundation and Ubuntu to discuss about the hottest topics in FLOSS movement, demonstrating the advantages of adopting, using and developing Open Source and Free Software solutions.
Beyond this, the event tries to promote these open and free concepts in other fields, covering but not limited to, business, media and education.
