The Netherlands: Delft Software Days Kicks Off
- Business & Finance
The Delft Software Days started today. This event, held at Deltares, offers two weeks of presentations, workshops and courses on software packages in the areas of water, soils/subsurface and infrastructure.
More than 350 software users and modellers from all over the world – from 40 countries in total – are in Delft to meet each other and exchange know-how. Many experts, including those from Deltares, are presenting the latest software developments, such as making more and more software freely available (or ‘open’). More than 5000 people are active in open source communities and have daily access to software codes they can use and develop even further.
Two years ago Deltares started an open source policy. The latest developments and experience about this will be presented during the Delft Software Days.
The Delft Software Days, organised by Deltares together with UNESCO-IHE and TU Delft, is being held for the third time. Deltares software is used in more than 120 countries worldwide.
