Networking App

Connect with fellow Open Source Summit Attendees!

When you find yourself surrounded by countless attendees with many interests and areas of expertise, it can be hard to find who you are looking for.

That's where the Open Source Networking App (powered by Grip) comes in! The networking app uses artificial intelligence to provide you with tailored recommendations of people to meet at the event based on your personal networking needs. The recommendations are presented in an easy-to-use and intuitive swiping interface.

From this app, you will be able to schedule face-to-face meetings to be held at Open Source Summit & Embedded Linux Conference Europe with your mutual connections. Start booking your meetings today!


How It Works:

  1. Download the app or log in via our online platform:

  2. Log in with your email and badge ID number (badge IDs will be sent out via email to attendees; please email if you have questions)

  3. Choose to connect with social media platforms or skip this section

  4. Network - Swipe - Make Connections!

  5. Set up face-to-face meetings with mutual connections or simply reach out to other attendees through the app.

*You can set up meetings before the event begins!



Benefits of Using the Networking App (powered by Grip):

  • User-Friendly design - Simply swipe 'Interested' or 'Skip' through profiles to make connections with fellow attendees.

  • No Spam - users swipe anonymously until both have swiped 'interested' for a 'handshake' - key influencers will not be bombarded with unsolicited messages.

  • Sign up easily with your current social media profiles.

  • The AI will recommend people to you who align with your business needs and interests.

  • Schedule meetings before and during the event and meet face-to-face at the event.




There will be an exclusive Networking Area available on Level LL, just outside the Roma room, at Hilton Prague for you to:

  • Set up meetings with your mutual connections

  • Once you schedule meetings, check your 'meetings tab' to keep track of your scheduled meetings

  • Meet in the Networking Area at the assigned date/time and at the assigned table for a 15-minute meeting networking chat
