WordCamp NYC this year took place as part of the Open Camps Initiative, which was held from July 8 through July 17 at the United Nations. The initiative brought together more than 25 open source conferences, boasting 7,500 attendees, and featuring more than 400 presentations.
According to the Open Camps website, the mission-driven event is “focused on supporting open source innovation, adoption, and contribution.”
“We are also committed ‘permissionless innovation, and ensuring there are no barriers between the best developers & presenters — regardless of age, race, gender or creed,” the site said.
It was the perfect forum for the tech world to come together and celebrate the power of open source. We sat down with open camps co-organizer Forest Mars to talk about the United Nations, open source, and more.
