SiteGround sponsors OpenFest conference

SiteGround was a proud sponsor for a second consecutive year of the largest Conference for open-source software on the Balkans – the OpenFest. The event was held last weekend in Sofia, Bulgaria. This was the 7th consecutive annual gathering of open-source developers and fans from the region and it attracted more than 30 speakers and 700 participants.

Among the most interesting speakers at the conference were Cornel Creanga from Adobe Romania, two of the Bulgarian developers, working on the Samba4 project, Philip Paeps – a prominent FreeBSD contributor from Belgium, and many more. SiteGround Head System Administrator? Marian Marinov, also participated in the conference with a special presentation on Artificial Intelligence(AI) in the System Administration, which provoked great interest and was visited by more than 150 professionals.

As a web hosting provider, we depend greatly on open-source software in our daily work. And what is even more important: our customers greatly depend on open-source applications for creating and maintaining their websites. We believe that without the open source ideas and applications the web would have never been so widely used by the people and the web hosting industry would have never been so big and successful. That is why we are happy to support OpenFest and other events dedicated to the open source software development as a humble contribution back from the industry to the great idea.
