Join us for the Open Standards and Innovate Open Technology Summit CrowdChat on May 20th
Want to stand out from your peers? Want to understand which emerging technologies and open source projects are changing the world and why? Then join us May 20th in a CrowdChat to discuss open technologies powering today's cloud and mobile environments and reshaping systems engineering.
What is a CrowdChat?
A CrowdChat is a free community virtual event platform that works seamlessly with Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to allow users to engage in an online conversation held at a pre-arranged time around a topic using a specific #hashtag. You can sign in using your Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn account. It's easy (and fun!) to participate in a CrowdChat. Here's a quick how-to demo:

A brief history on open standards
Where would the internet be without open standards? That’s impossible to answer since open standards have been the cornerstone of what we now know as the web. Technologies such as HTTP, HTML, XML, and even the TCP/IP protocols provide a common ground that allows anyone to create and consume content easily across a sea of various hardware and software.
In 2008 IBM founded Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) at open-services.net with the goal of standardizing how lifecycle tools communicated with each other. Since then, over 40 organizations have participated in the initiative, working on 13 specifications, creating integrations for dozens of products, and founding related open source projects (e.g. Eclipse Lyo and OSLC4Net).
Reminder to attend the Open Technology Summit!
Meet us at Innovate on Sunday, June 1, 4 p.m. EST, Dolphin Southern 3 for the Open Technology Summit to hear industry leaders deliver lightning talks on the open technologies that are behind today's cloud and mobile environments and transforming systems engineering. You'll learn how open technologies such as jQuery, Cordova, OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, and OSLC enable development agility and velocity that were impossible to attain just a few years ago. You’ll have the opportunity to mingle and exchange ideas with the speakers and to help advance these industry initiatives. There'll be time to network and refreshments will be served. In addition, attending the Open Technology Summit will give you a preview into some of the highlights and exclusive content you won't find anywhere else at Innovate 2014, including a special welcome from IBM Rational General Manager, Kristof Kloeckner!
We hope to see you soon in sunny Orlando!
