Talk announcement – Italo Vignoli – ‘Software Heritage, the global OSS archive’
Sir Italo, a founding member of The Document Foundation and the LibreOffice project, the Chairman Emeritus of Associazione LibreItalia, an Ambassador of Software Heritage, and a proud member of Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). In his lightning talk, we will hear how Software Heritage is the global archive of software source code, and is supported by UNESCO in cooperation with INRIA. Software source code represents a unique asset for human knowledge in recent history. It is therefore crucial to work together collectively so that the knowledge embedded in software source code is properly preserved, valued and shared with all.
