What is HOT?

HOT = Heidelberg OSADL Talks are open information events that take place several times a year in Heidelberg, Germany. Participants will get an overview of the fundamental legal and technical aspects when using Open Source software in industrial products and will learn how OSADL can provide support.

The Mixed HOT on March 25, 2019 and the Mixed HOT on May 8, 2019 are one-day events with focus on legal and technical aspects. In contrast, the two HOT dates in fall have individual focuses (September 23 - Legal HOT with focus on legal aspects, September 24 - Technical HOT with focus on technical aspects) and can be booked either separately or as package.

Who can attend HOT?

  • Employees of OSADL member companies whose in-house OSADL information day took place some time ago and/or who would like to get an update on the legal and technical prerequisites when using Open Source software in industrial products as well as on current OSADL projects and services.   
  • New employees of OSADL member companies who are connected with Open Source software and who do not yet know OSADL and its services and who would like to get an overall information on the legal and technical requirements when using Open Source software in industrial products.
  • Companies that are not yet OSADL members and whose employees want to get acquainted with OSADL, its projects and services and get to know OSADL better before or in addition to an in-house OSADL information day for their company.
