News and Recent Highlights from 2024

Still in the first week of this year,, Germany’s second largest IT news website has published another article from Markus Feilner. This one is about Grit:lab, a school in the Finnish Aland archipelago. In the heart of the Baltic sea, young people learn how to code, free of charge and without teachers.

FOSDEM has accepted two of our talks – a panel on openwashing, opencore (see Golem article below) and Commercial Open Source Software (COSS) and Second: a market overview on open source alternatives for modern knowledge management to replace Atlassian Confluence. Oh, there’s two more of Markus’ talks not yet approved neither denied…

What a great start into this year: Golem, Germany’s second largest IT website has published another one of Markus Feilner’s articles. This time it’s an in-deep analysis of openwashing and opencore and how the case of Red Hat vs. Centos is affecting the open source world. Is it legit, legal, morally or ethically questionable? And does it support the true spirit of Open Source Software?
