About Plain Schwarz

Plain Schwarz connects. As a door opener to the open source world, we organize knowledge sharing and access to open source technologies for world leading IT companies, start-ups and institutions. With our network of experts we support our partners and customers on their way to digital transformation with open source. We do this by maintaining close ties with the open source developer community. We know their needs and speak their language. Our network includes top-level organizations, foundations and non-profit organizations. Open source software is more ubiquitous than you might think, it is used across all industries by 85% of all companies. The open, participatory structure provides the perfect breeding ground for innovation and global networking, which we promote and cultivate in our events.

Plain Schwarz events are unique both in their atmosphere and in the make-up of the participants. Our programs cover the fundamental principles as well as the latest developments and insights from the open source world, and offer a platform for exchange between international developers.
With more than 15 years of experience as a mediator and active part of the open source community, our network serves as a gateway and catalyst for new partnerships. We successfully work together with local as well as global players such as Google, Amazon, Ebay, IBM, Microsoft, Elastic, Apple, Confluent, Red Hat, Lucidworks, Zalando and many more. This gives our partners a strategically important advantage on the way to digital transformation.
