Alex is an early adopter of Linux and Python. He worked in different SMEs always promoting Open Source software and contribution to the eco-system. Although mainly a developper and tech lead, he always participated in a lot of tasks: from marketing or scrum master to machine learning or system administration. He joined Open Food Facts 18 months ago, where he also participates in a wide variety of tasks on software and community animation.
Open Food Facts, the free food products database, celebrated its 10 years in 2022, with a brand new app, more than 2.5 millions products in its database, 200+ more reuses of the data, and first plan participation in impacting projects like the Nutri-Score and the Eco-Score. In this talk we will discuss running and developing this Open Data Common: what are the challenges at stake; how the project weaves together public at large, food manufacturers, re-using applications, scientists, public agencies, private foundations and the community of contributors; how we try hard to be as open and transparent as possible.
