PlovdivConf is part of IT Tour great initiative, to make regional IT conferences in 5 big cities in Bulgaria: Varna, Burgas, Ruse, Veliko Tarnovo and Plovdiv. They make it every year and it’s made by the same team which organize the biggest Open Source event in Bulgaria – OpenFest in Sofia.

As Open Fest is huge and there are usually more talks applications than time (OpenFest is just two days)  IT Tour decided to make these regional conferences where local people has more chances to talk on IT subjects.

This year I will have lecture at PlovdivConf and will talk about “How Open Source technologies can help to make our city better place to live”.

Plovdiv municipality recently show interest in Open Source and we will try to help with our expertise and experience. The initial subject they are looking for solutions are: Parking management, City Lighting management, Waste management, Transport management, Bicycle management, and so on. We are already working on FOSS/OSHW solution for all these problems. They are open though to any other subjects which could help them to do their job better, so if you have idea come and share.

In my talk I will try to show the advantages of the Open Source solutions. Everyone is welcome to join the conference. It’s free to attend and we will looking forward to hear you and have after lecture discussions and ideas exchange how we can make our cities better place to live.
