I want to give some explanations about the upcoming conference in Denver.
Although most of the communication around the event has been done as coming from openFrameworks, the event itself has been organized in full by Clinic for open source in the arts (COSA)…
The topics of the conference, the public communication and the selection of the candidates has been done by COSA along with a steering committee selected by COSA and formed by members of the community with different extents of involvement in the project.
The core maintainers of the project or the extended OF community has had no part in the decision making or possibility to review this decisions before they were made public. This isn’t something that we were notified about beforehand.
