FOSSASIA Activities


Coding Programs

FOSSASIA organizes local, regional and global developer trainings and cooperates with partners in programs such as Google Summer of Code. Please join us and browse our open issues, mini-projects and GSoC ideas.


Developer Meetups and Conferences

The FOSSASIA Open Tech Summit takes place once a year. We organize Science Hack Days and regular meetups throughout Asia from Beijing, Saigon, Singapore to Dubai. Please check out our meetup groups and get in touch with us if you would like to start a group in your region.


Software and Hardware Development

We develop applications for Science hack labs, software programs for events, community engagement and open data tools, and we support existing projects with resources. Check out the FOSSASIA Labs for more info.


What We Do

We bring people together to share, create, develop and make things with Open Technologies and software. We organize science hack labs, Open Tech events, meetups and coding programs with developers, designers and contributors.

Why We Do It

We want to see that information technology and science have a liberating impact on our society. We believe this can be achieved if people have access to digital tools and knowledge. Open Technologies offer free and open access. At FOSSASIA we are excited how sharing is possible on all layers from software, hardware and design to data and knowledge and we work hard to enable people to participate in the sharing society, expand knowledge, tools and opportunities, freedom of communication and expression for everyone.

Who We Are

We are a network of people from all continents, who want to see progress and improvements of people's lives in Asia and everywhere. We are developers, designers, event organizers and contributors who want to learn and share ideas, create and make digital software tools and hardware, that benefits people around the world. FOSSASIA was founded in 2009 by Hong Phuc Dang and Mario Behling.

The FOSSASIA Summit is an annual conference featuring prominent Open Tech icons.
