A talk about the OSGeo Live project; covering 43 projects that are available in a live DVD format (for you to run without installing). The project is much improved with OGC documentation and a description of many of the projects. New this year (thanks to some sponsorship) is quickstarts for several of the projects.

      • Tip
        • Many good things start at FOSS4G
        • Go to a Bird of Feather session!
    • FOSS4G 2009 – Version 2
      • Version 2.0
        • “Arramagong” produced by LISAsoft

        • Increase to 21 projects
        • Xbuntu based, with an actual build process
      • Success!
        • FOSS4G provided a printing run
        • Used an example “template” script inviting others to fill in the blanks in order to take part
        • 48 hour build cycle (automation!)
    • FIG 2010 – Version 3
      • An international Surveyors conference
        • “Arramagong”
        • A wombat is like a cute bager

        • Templates for Project Developers
        • Build Scripts
        • Quality Assurance
    • Why is OSGeo Live Successful Today
      • Gap between ...
      • Developers who write the software
        • Cost of writing “proper” Linux installers was too expensive
        • Producing DVDs takes too much time
      • And installers who package it for others
        • Cost of figuring out the software too expensive
        • Cost of describing the software too expensive
      • OSGeo Live bridges this Gap
        • “project management” for developers and installers
        • Arrange sponsorship for DVD print runs
        • Contact point for conferences and education programs
    • OSGeo Live is Valuable
      • Great example of collaboration to produce value!
      • Conferences:
        • Provide Printing, and get a great ready-to-run DVD for your delegates
        • A bit more effort and you can brand to match your conference
    • How to Help!
      • Volunteer on our mailing list
      • Sponsor an activity
    • The Projects
    • The Projects
      • There are a couple of ways to think about the projects
      • For each project
        • Name
        • OSGeo Project
        • License
        • Features
        • Website
        • Visual
        • Sponsors – who is paying for the developers
      • For more information please check the OSGeo Live documentation on your DVD
      • Some projects also have a “Quickstart” which is a good help
