Open Source pioneer Tim O’Reilly to take the stage at OX Summit 2018

By John Broomfield, VP Marketing Open-Xchange

We’re really excited to announce that Tim O’Reilly, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, will appear on stage as a keynote speaker at OX Summit 2018. Tim is an iconic figure within the open source movement, having organized the famous 1998 meeting where the term “open source software” was coined.

Tim has been influential in starting conversations that have reshaped the computer industry a number of times over, witha central role in the formation of the “Web 2.0” model, and he has helped formulate multiple policies and initiatives associated with the modernization of government technology and policy around the world. We are honored to have such an eminent member of the tech community appear at OX Summit.

Tim will be discussing his latest book, WTF? What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us, which looks at the way modern technologies are transforming the nature of work. Tim has a truly unique perspective on the history of computing and where the industry is heading, and I know our customers and partners will be excited to hear from a true industry giant.

After the Keynote Tim will be joined on stage by Rafael Laguna, Open-Xchange founder and CEO, where they will continue to discuss the transformation that is taking place and what the implications are for Open-Xchange and many of our customers and partners. During the lunch break there will also be a book signing where you can chat to Tim and get a signed copy of his latest book.

We’re pleased to welcome Tim to OX Summit and can’t wait to see him in action. For more information on our annual US event, please visit our web page.

OX Summit 2018 will be held on April 17-19 in Nashville, TN.
