More than 300 participants took part in the Malaysia Open Source Conference 2014 held in Menara Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur recently. The two day event played host to various workshops, discussion, and keynotes on how Open Source Software (OSS) and Hardware can be used to leverage a business.

“MOSCMY 2014 marks six successful years of engaging with the Open Source Community and Malaysian businesses on the promotion and utilization of OSS and Hardware. Over the years, we’ve seen growing interest in OSS implementation and success stories, and we couldn’t have done this alone. This year, we are proud to partner with the likes of Microsoft to bring MOSCMY 2014 to the masses, but our work here is far from over. We will continue to work and partner with open source communities at all levels to bring the latest in OSS developments, solutions and trends in the coming years,” said Harisfazillah Jamel, Co-Founder of the Open Source Developer Community and Chairman of MOSCMY 2014.

The event was participated and sponsored by Microsoft Malaysia. It’s Director, Developer Experience & Evangelism, Dinesh Nair, said that Open Source standards are an integral part of the Cloud ecosystem, which provides developers and CIOs with the freedom and flexibility they need to operate their business.

“Microsoft is committed to advancing the company’s investment in interoperability, open standards and open source. At our core, Microsoft is the productivity and platform company for the mobile-first and Cloud-first world. In the Cloud, we support key standards that provide the building blocks for open, interoperable Cloud services, and we support developer choice of programming languages. By supporting these standards, we are contributing to and partnering with open source communities to promote interoperability, which makes it easier and less costly for customers to develop and manage mixed IT environments,” said Dinesh.
