What we do:
We look to the ecosystem of Silicon Valley to meet new ideas and to inspire others. We expect the unexpected, and embrace the unavoidable as quickly as possible while preparing for the next wave on the horizon.
We spend our time in the Cloud, hacking new products from the Valley, evaluating them with test-beds and benchmarks, and crafting adaptations of disruptive technology for use in our networks and devices. SDKs, APIs, and frameworks are the tools all developers use, and we learn from the ecosystem by using these tools alongside them.
OSV experts participate in open source forums, test-beds, and benchmarks. We host events, support innovators and analysts in Los Angeles and the SF Bay Area, and maintain an active schedule of conference attendance throughout the year across the innovation center that is California.
We actively bring Orange senior managers, major customers, and European policymakers into dialog with the disruptors of Silicon Valley. OSV takes you behind the latest news and puts you in contact with the newsmakers before it hits the Web.
