GOSCON and the Open Technology Roadmap

Lora Bentley

The U.S. Department of Defense created quite the buzz when it released its Open Technology Development Roadmap, which the department has been using to adopt open source and a shared software development model throughout its operations.

 

In a recent interview with IT Business Edge, Government Open Source Conference director Deborah Bryant described the roadmap as the most comprehensive document available for those contemplating an open source project but unsure where to start.

 

She and her colleagues are apparently so impressed with it that the upcoming GOSCON, to be held Oct. 12-13, in Portland, Ore., largely will be centered around the roadmap and the "synergies" it can create for other government agencies (or even for for-profit companies, she says) looking to share their knowledge of and experiences in open software development.
