What to Expect for Open Source Projects

Open UP Summit welcomes everyone to initiate and participate in open source projects. We hope to attract talents from various fields such as developers, designers and create influential projects with senior industry leaders. Popular projects and selected projects will have the opportunity to present their own open source projects at the summit.

Let’s start an open source project collaborating journey. It’s better when it’s shared. Join a project and continue to contribute to the project. By collaborating with others on projects, you're able to experience a brand-new way of project development. The prominent teams can get a chance to be the speaker and share with nearly 400 participants!
