Open Source Developers @ Google Speaker Series: Tim Ansell

Monday, June 2, 2008

Following a brief hiatus, we're excited to announce the return of the Open Source Developers @ Google Speaker Series. Please join us this Thursday, June 5th for Tim Ansell's presentation "Gaming for Freedom." Tim, Founder of the Thousand Parsec project, will explore the universe of Free and Open Source computer games, drawing on his personal experience as a case study for successfully building and contributing to an Open Source game project. He will also explore how the project's participation in the Google Summer of Code™ program over the past two years has shaped the Thousand Parsec code base and community.

As with all sessions of the Open Source Developers @ Google Speaker Series, Tim's presentation will be open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 PM at our Mountain View, California, USA Headquarters; guests should plan to sign it at Building 43 reception upon arrival. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome and encouraged to attend. For those of you who cannot join us in person, the presentation will be taped and published along with all public Google Tech Talks.

We're working on lining up a host of Googler Open Sourcerers for you to learn from over the next few months. Anyone in particular you'd like to hear from? Let us know in the comments section.
