CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The Bazaar is the foremost interactive educational event in support of the free and open source software movement. This movement, founded and supported through a massive global development community, embodies two major segments of the software industry committed to solving complex computing problems for users, notably in the area of enterprise and internet-based development:
1) The Free and Open Source Community - this community is composed of the visionaries, risk takers, designers, coders, and maintainers of the growing number of foundation technologies available today as free and open source software.
2) Product and Service Companies - leadership software, hardware and service enterprises motivated by the passion and excellence of the community and driven by the promise of the resultant technologies. Product companies embrace the foundation projects and build upon them. They also insure that popular layered application, tools, middleware, languages, and more can live with, and enhance, the open source accomplishments.
The Bazaar is the only conference to provide a separate but equal voice to both parties for the benefit of the end user. The Bazaar not only provides an environment for the visionaries of Open Source to meet and discuss current and future advancements in the community but also provides the only hands-on and workshop oriented instruction for users taught by leading product and education companies in the industry.
