The 4th annual Open Source Show & Tell wrapped up and we had such a great time experiencing and seeing some cool open source projects.

OSSAT 2017, Community-Submitted Talk: Musical Plushies: A STEAM-y Fusion by Ashley Qian

We got interactive with Ashley going on a journey building smart musical IoT plushies, and were wowed by Beth’s talk on unifying the .NET developer community.

Joel walked us through the inner workings of software development (the good, bad, and ugly), and show us how the purely functional and open source package manager, Nix, can help with package and configuration management. Zach took us on a journey into why the open source project Steeltoe was built, and showed us how developers can write in .NET and still implement industry best practices when building services for the cloud.

We learned from Josh at Algolia how you can scale a developer community by creating webhooks for community support, and Sarah (image left) took us along a journey understanding open source’s role in cloud computing at companies like Google.

Julia presented about internationalizing if-me, an open source non-profit mental health communication platform maintained by contributors from many backgrounds and skill sets.

There were lots of other excellent talks about open source project like Babelfish a self-hosted server for source code parser presented by Eiso, and Nicolas’s talk about helping people build better APIs following best practices via Apicur.io.

Check out all of the topics and talks here.

Big thanks to GitHub, Google, and Microsoft for co-organizing and hosting. Looking forward to seeing you at Open Source Show and Tell next year!
