Apereo Community Reflections on FOSSY 2023 

September 25, 2023
The Apereo community joined the wider open source world at the inaugural FOSSY conference in 2023. We asked a few of the Apereo community members who attended FOSSY to share their reflections about the conference.  Overwhelmingly, folks were glad to be in the same physical space as their Apereo colleagues after a long hiatus. Leveraging the wider OSS community present at FOSSY enabled several partnerships for the Foundation and spread the word that open source has a presence and power in education, which FOSSY attendees wholeheartedly supported and were excited to hear about. We hope you enjoy reading these reflections and consider joining us at FOSSY next year and/or at one of the other conferences where Apereo has been invited to partner.
