Stanford's Open Source unConference '08

Some old news here as back to back holidays and projects have sidetracked me from posting this earlier. On Friday November 14, 2008 Stanford Open Source Lab had its first Open Source unConference. Hosted by Stanford's Metaverse man Henrik Bennetsen, it was an intimate turnout of those supporting open source tools and technologies.

The event grid had great topics and speakers for all the sessions. There were several sessions on Drupal (the open source content management platform), I caught Vladimir Bacvanski's engaging session on Javascript and the Dojo Toolkit, and finished off with Gene Leybzon's session explaining and showcasing some cool applications he developed for Google's Android open free mobile platform.

Only natural to have a session on the open standard for the 3D Web/Metaverse and cover its open source players. Thanks to Web3D Consortium Board member Dr. Michael Aratow for also participating in this session.

Expect to see some of these slides used in Anita Havale's SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 Web3D presentation.

All shared slides are available here and are worth checking out. Thanks to Henrik for supporting open source and always being a gracious host of informative events.
