Mr. Babar Zahoor
CTO, OpenWare Business Pvt. Ltd
Emerging as a Social Entrepreneur, Babar is also looking for a social change in society using Open Source Technologies hence ensuring “Equal Access for Everyone to Innovative Technologies”. He strongly advocates that following in the footsteps of many developed countries, Pakistan should end its dependence on borrowed and highly paid licensed closed source Technologies and instead use Open Source Technologies, which are cost-effective, user friendly, secure and can be developed to deliver on local demands of public and private sectors at very minimum cost as compared to costly and less adaptive closed source software. He argues that it will not only help Pakistan grow strongly in this field but will help, utilize and polish the skills of our teeming youth bursting at the seams to showcase their talent and entrepreneurship. To accomplish these ambitious goals he has made a humble effort of establishing Open Source Foundation of Pakistan (OSFP) with the help of a very highly motivated team of IT experts, academicians, researchers, innovators and even the go-get-it type of students.
As a founder of OSFP his initial aims was to promote Open Source Technologies in Pakistan, educate/train Pakistani IT community/ IT Professionals and common computer users to use Linux Operating System & Open Source Technologies. To spread the word and knowledge of Linux OS & Open Source Technologies around; he is running various technology blogs & portals i.e. http://www.LinuxUrduCBTs.com , http://www.OpenSourceEducation.net , http://Youtube.com/user/BabarZahoor , https://vimeo.com/babarzahoor, http://Tune.pk/user/babarZahoor
He speaks on National / International technology events to share his knowledge and experience on IT & Open Source Technologies. Babar is also part of Internet Society Pakistan Islamabad Chapter as a member BoD, who steers the Internet Society Pakistan chapter activities.
