The 2010 Conference will have a higher mix of interactive participation which is consistent with the Conference theme "Make the Change". The Conference will consist of the following activities :
- Tutorials : There will be 6 tutorial sessions where participants get to follow the 2 hour session in a hands-on manner. This is an opportunity for participants to try out and enhance their development skills. Each session can accomodate a maximum 100 participants and 2 sessions will be conducted simultaneously over 3 tracks. This is expected to be very popular with programmers, administrators and students.
- Competition : There will be 3 competitions, namely, for animation, gaming, and open coding. This is a team event where participants get to test thier skills against their peers in that field. Each competition will consist of 6 teams of 5 participants. This is expected to be very popular among programmers and students.
- Talks : There will be 18 talk sessions from local and international speakers on topics that are expected to make profound changes to the Open Source eco-system over the next 10 years, whether in the aspects of new products or projects, technological innovation, creative features, development methodology, or community collaboration. Tentative topics that have been received are cloud computing, database systems, security, Open Source collaboration platforms, managing Open Source projects.
- Demonstration Booth : There will be 16 booths for sponsors to exhibit and demonstrate their products, services and projects in detail to participants. Exhibitors are encouraged to also organise their own mini events so that participants can get involved interactively. Sponsors are also welcome to distribute freebies at their exhibition booths.
