Pushing on a Piece of String - OSIAs adventures in influencing governments

Presented by Paul Foxworthy
Tuesday 2 p.m.–2:30 p.m.
Target audience: Community


During 2016 Open Source Industry Australia (OSIA) made multiple submissions to Federal and state government inquiries, committees and taskforces.

This talk will look at the issues we raised, the changes we would like to see, what effect we’ve had, and what we’ve learned that might be useful to the open source community and other open source organisations.
