  • Overall, although the exhibition was useful, some of the talk content was interesting, and the event was certainly well put together, I came away feeling that the event was a pretty average show overall. With so much competition in the conference circuit, I would far rather throw my conference dollars at shows such as SoCal Linux Expo, Ohio Linux Fest, or OSCON for open source-focused content or CloudCamp for cloud-related content. Interestingly, although many of these events are led by volunteers, they certainly equal, and in most cases surpass, OpenSourceWorld in terms of content and quality. I do believe IDG could deliver unique value in OpenSourceWorld, but I didn't pick up on it this time, and I genuinely hope that if they have an event next year, it delivers something unique for the demographic of the industry it is targeting.
