Opening press conference of " COSCUP x GNOME. Asia x openSUSE. Asia 2018 "

Since its founding in 2006, COSCUP (Conference for Open Source, Coders, Users and Promoters) has been the leading promoter of open source and innovation in Taiwan.

This year, COSCUP has invited two very well known organizations- GNOME.Asia and openSUSE.Asia who will be joining us from August 11-12, 2018 at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology.

We have invited honorary guest speakers, from the likes of Audrey Tang (Digital Minister of Taiwan), Simon Chang San-Cheng (Chairman of the Taiwan Mobile Foundation), Chen Hsien-Li (Executive of Breaktime Inc), Wu Han-Chang (Director of Asus Cloud Corporation), to the representatives from COSCUP x GNOME.Asia x openSUSE.Asia.

We are grateful to have such honored guest represent and share their passion for open source. We want to break down the misconception that only engineers/developers can benefit from the open source community. Our hope is to share the open knowledge and community that COSCUP has to offer to all fields of discipline.

COSCUP is the largest open source event in Asia that will soon take place on August 11-12, 2018 at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. To top it off, this year we are fortunate to have GNOME.Asia and openSUSE.Asia help kickoff our event.

The mission of COSCUP is to create an open source community that promotes the sharing of knowledge and code amongst users and developers. We are a group of volunteers passionate about sharing the idea of open source to others. Only with this sort of commitment, is COSCUP able to continue on for 13 straight years.

We started in Taipei and our hope is to connect users and developers from all over the world, putting Taiwan on the map as an important distributor of open code.

As for our partners, GNOME.Asia is currently the world’s most popular open source user interface. The GNOME Foundation in Asia was first established in 2008, and shares our passion for open source software.

The openSUSE Asia Conference is an important event in the open source community that promotes the use and application of the highly popular operating system, Linux. This is the 5th year that the openSUSE Asia conference was held in Beijing. Every year, they invite participants from around the world to share open source knowledge and experience to users and developers alike.

Thus, we are excited to have both GNOME.Asia and openSUSE Asia attend this years’ 2018 COSCUP event.

2017 was the first year we invited honored speakers to come to speak at COSCUP by sharing their open source story and experiences. Fast forward to 2018, COSCUP took on the challenge to invite Mr. Simon Chang San-Cheng, chairman of Taiwan Mobile Foundation, and Mr. Chen Hsien-Li, executive of Breaktime Inc., and Mr. Wu Han-Chang, director of Asus Cloud Corporation, to represent the 2018 COSCUP press conference leading up to our main event.

The press conference is an opportunity to showcase the 13 - year journey of COSCUP, and also invite speakers to share how greater society can benefit from an open source community.

Our open source representative, Mr. Simon Chang shares what it means to have the “open source spirit” and applications that are not exclusive to software development. He mentions an example of open source farming that takes place in Hualien, and touches upon the potential and opportunities of open source.

Further, Executive, Chen Hsien-Li shares how he benefited from open source with his teaching background.

Director Wu claims that ,” from the use of Linux to EeePC 10 years ago, the market has been well received. In recent years, the development of the Asus cloud platform has used a large number of Open Sources. Asus has always been a loyal supporter of Open Source; Open Source is a very important platform for connecting developers, through sharing, feedback and Solving problems allows technology to progress faster and lays a good foundation for Taiwan's system software."

 

Finally, we will have a ceremonial breaking of the ice to represent our desire to reach out to other industries and not be limited to engineers/developers. We hope to share the value of open source to all areas in the world. We firmly believe that the values of open source will contribute to the greater good in the world. While the concept of open source may have started from programming, the open source spirit is surely not limited to it.
