This year, the panel of judges is comprised of Brenda Wallace, Bronwyn Holloway-Smith, Dave Lane, Edwin Bruce, Dr. Fabiana Kubke, Jason Ryan and Jay Daley.
New Zealand's open source community will gather on 25 October to celebrate those businesses, projects and individuals that have been recognised by their peers as representing the best in open source endeavours over the last two years.
