Among the finalists for the second Open Source Awards are an online document converter, a typesetting engine and the State Services Commission’s broadband map.
The awards received close to 100 nominations this year.
Open source shop Catalyst IT, which is organising the awards, to be held in Wellington in the end of September, says it is pleased to see so many new projects.
“We were a bit worried there wouldn’t be as many nominations as last year, or that we would see the same projects,” says Catalyst’s Don Christie.
But a lot of new projects have been nominated this year, both individual and government projects, he says.
