What is FOSSY?

Initially introduced by The Software Freedom Conservancy as a replacement for O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON), which shuttered in 2020, FOSSY is styled after FOSDEM, where the tracks and conference planning are done by those who participate.

What is the FOSS for Education track?

The FOSS For Education Community Track will provide sessions dedicated to using, developing, and managing open resources within academic environments, from multi-institutional consortia to departmental projects. The track organizers will emphasize presentations and topics highlighting the common principles, practices, benefits, challenges, and models spanning the variety of open initiatives impacting teaching and learning environments and campus administration.
