Open source project booths

We acknowledge that it's in the hallway-track you sometimes have the most interesting discussions and real friendships are forged. The Open Source Days conference itself is the product of a joint community effort, sparked from a common goal, so the community booth area is very important to us.

On saturday 4. october you can meet the following user groups and open source projects.

Pike is a dynamic programming language with a syntax similar to Java and C. It is simple to learn, does not require long compilation passes and has powerful built-in data types allowing simple and really fast data manipulation.

Pike is released under the GNU GPL, GNU LGPL and MPL; this means that you can fetch it and use it for almost any purpose you please.

We will talk about some projects built using pike and demonstrate how one framework (Roxen WebServer) can be used to quickly build web applications with Pike.
