Utah Open Source Conference 2012
About the Event
May 3, 2012
Utah Valley University, Liberal Arts building
The Utah Open Source Foundation was created in June of 2006 with the goal of ‘Helping grow open source in Utah’. This goal, while a tremendous challenge, has brought with it some great successes, and some serious trials. UTOS is in place because of the hard work and efforts from a group of volunteers, several business folk who are interested in UTOS’ success and the generous encouragement of the Utah Open Source community.
UTOS launched out of the now defunct Utah Open Source Coalition. Our ideals are similar in nature to theirs, though on a larger scale. UTOS plans help Local User Groups (LUGs) and others involved in open source in Utah in several areas. Our main focuses are community, technology and business, with a growing interest in spreading open source in education. We believe that helping those who help free software succeed is a noble goal.
