Software and Hardware Projects
We create Open Source software and open hardware from science apps like the Pocket Science Lab (PSLab), event management systems (Eventyay), big "open" data analytics software (loklak), Open Source personal assistants (SUSI.AI), tools for development (Scrum Helper), to Android apps like the imaging app Phimpme.
Events and Meetups
Our signature event, the FOSSASIA OpenTechSummit, takes place annualy. Our OpenTechSummits are happening in Singapore, China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. We organize Science Hackathons in cooperation with companies and International organizations like the UNESCO and have meetups throughout Asia from Beijing, Saigon, Singapore to Dubai. Please join our events.

A little more about FOSSASIA
FOSSASIA is an organization developing Open Source software applications and Open Hardware together with a global community from its base in Asia. It is our goal to provide access to open technologies, science applications and knowledge that improve people's lives. We want to enable people to adapt and change technology according to their own ideas and needs and validate science and knowledge through an Open Access approach. FOSSASIA was established 2009 by Hong Phuc Dang and Mario Behling. We organize and participate in conferences, meetups and code camps. The annual FOSSASIA Summit is one of the top tech events in Asia. Other summits take place in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and India. FOSSASIA also runs a number of coding programs such as Codeheat. Please join us and start contributing to our projects, participate as a coder, designer, hardware developer or event organizer, become a sponsor of projects and events or support us by buying Open Tech products on the FOSSASIA store
Incubating Open Tech Projects
We incubate our most advanced projects into FOSS companies to support a sustainable FOSS Ecosystem.
Our teams are developing software to run events. We have Android apps to enhance photos or do scientific experiments. You can set up your own SUSI.AI personal assistant. Or, you use the Pocket Science Lab (PSLab) to measure just about anything. We also fund the production of Open Hardware like PSLab to get FOSS moving forward.Learn about Projects Check out PSLab.io
Pocket Science Lab - Open Hardware
PSLab is a FOSS/Open Hardware extension for your smartphone or PC. It enables you to measure all kinds of things by connecting it to your phone or PC via USB. You can use it as an Oscilloscope, Multimeter, Frequency counter, Power Source, Logic Analyzer, Wavelength Generator, Luxmeter, Barometer and many more. Use our Android or desktop app to collect and view the data. And, you can even plug in hundreds of compatible sensors to the PSLab pin slots. What experiments you can do is just limited by your imagination!PSLab GitHub Buy PSLab
Throughout the year FOSSASIA organizes meetups and events. FOSSASIA events are the place software development gets done. If you rely on open technologies you must be a part of FOSSASIA events, be it as an attendee, speaker, volunteer or sponsor. You can also organize your own event with our open event software at eventyay.com.Organize Events Sponsorship
Our Background and Mission
What We Do
We bring amazing people together to create, develop, design and make things with Open Technologies - hardware and software - and share our work for the benefit of all. We organize Open Tech summits, science hack labs, meetups and coding programs with developers, designers and contributors. We also incubate projects into companies to support the development of a sustainable FOSS ecosystem.
Why We Do It
Our main goal is to improve people's lives by sharing Open Tech solutions. We want to see that information technology and science has a positive 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 an organization of people from all continents based in Asia. We 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 benefit people around the world. FOSSASIA was founded in 2009 by Hong Phuc Dang and Mario Behling.
Coding Programs and Labs
FOSSASIA runs coding programs and contests such as Codeheat. In the Codeheat coding contest developers build up their code profile. Participants can win awesome prizes and winners fly to the annual FOSSASIA Summit. In FOSSASIA Labs we collect project ideas and discuss new features of existing applications. Different programs are available for high school and university students or professionals. And there are regularly job opportunities for full time developers listed on the job page. Check out details of our programs and opportunities here.
FOSSASIA Contests, Programs, Mentorship and Job Opportunities
Codeheat Coding Contest
The Codeheat contest takes place every year from September to February. Developers can join at any time. You can build up your developer profile, win awesome prizes and even a trip to the FOSSASIA Summit.
Developer Internship Program
The internship program is open to university students, freelancers and professionals. Internships usually take place over the summer. Interested developers can apply at any time.
High School Student Program
The FOSSASIA high school student program takes place towards the end of every year. We often cooperate with partners that provide opportunities for our students to participate in programs such as Google Code-In at the same time.
Advanced Developer Program
The 'Advanced Developer Program' is intended for developers who have previously participated successfully in an intensive FOSSASIA program.
FOSSASIA has two mentorship programs: Firstly the mentorship program for the high school student program and secondly the mentorship program for university students and developers. Mentors are listed on the program websites and support developers by reviewing PRs and issues and advising them on the communication channels.
As a developer at FOSSASIA, you will work together with a global community to develop our FOSS projects or hardware and to maintain web services. You’ll own what you build, making technical decisions and applying our best practices to every piece of code. The team uses scrum emails for the daily standup and Gitter for continuous chat communication. Candidates who have contributed code to one of our projects will have an advantage when applying.
