Developing, enhancing and using open source frameworks is daily business for us. We create a lot of open source software as committers and contributors for projects at Eclipse.org (e.g. EMF Forms) and for other open source projects (e.g. qb). Our business is to make open source work for our customers.
Although we spend a lot of time on open source in our daily work, we believe it is important for innovation to make room for an extended period of time to take a step back, collect new ideas and try new things.
Once a year we retreat for an open source week from all daily work including customer work and fully focus on defined topics in our open source projects. We will have dedicated blog posts for the results this year to share with you what we have achieved.
This blog post is just a teaser and is also meant to make you a bit jealous about the great location on top of a mountain we are having the OS week at this year 😉
