Nonprofit Software Development Summit

Diverse Opinions of the NPDev Community

The community-building activities at the start of the Summit revealed a surprising diversity of opinions within the npdev community. What most surprised me is that there's mixed opinions about whether nonprofits are ideologically obligated to support open-source software. My own thought is that social entrepreneurship will take off in the tech sector, and there will be successful nonprofit businesses that promote and develop open-source software that is just as reliable and usable as any proprietary software: ethical dilemma solved.

final preparations

The final preparations of the summit are underway at Aspiration - nametags, folders, lunch orders; Gunner sent out an updates and reminder email earlier this afternoon; check out the final agenda at http://devsummit.aspirationtech.org/index.php/Event_Schedule

I am interested in quite a few sessions, some of which are in simultaneous tracks; choosing is going to be difficult. Not too bad though, irrespective, it is going to be interesting and a learning experience - moreover, I can always share/swap session notes with the other attendees. Looking forward to it!
