OSCON 2013 Program Announced

Posted by fnikola on April 4, 2013 at 8:41 AM PDT

Registration is open for the O'Reilly Open Source Convention 2013 and we know you won’t want to miss it, especially this year—it’s going to be an extraordinary event. We're celebrating OSCON's 15th anniversary with a look back at open source's rich history, some prognosticating about tomorrow, excellent after-hours events, and, as always, a deep dive into open source today.

And we've assembled a great lineup of speakers and sessions. For five days, you'll immerse yourself in open source technologies, ideas, and projects, surrounded by some of the best minds in the field, open source rock stars, hackers, developers, and vendors.

Here's a sampling of what you'll get at OSCON:

  • Full open source immersion: From the time you arrive at OSCON until you leave, you'll be deep in open source--ideas, discussions, hands-on exercises. You may even dream open source at night.
  • Training, hands-on and otherwise: You'll add to your current skills and acquire new ones through OSCON's sessions, workshops, and tutorials. When you leave OSCON, you'll definitely be better at what you do.
  • Help with problem-solving: Connect with people who do what you do and get answers to your most vexing problems. The hallway encounters, lunchtime discussions, and office hours with OSCON speakers put you face-to-face with people who have successfully tackled the same things you're working on.

It's not too early to start planning your OSCON experience now. OSCON is happening July 22-26 in Portland, Oregon. Mark your calendar, convince your manager, or better yet, reserve your spot now. Best pricing ends April 25.

See you in Portland,
Edd Dumbill, Sarah Novotny, Matthew McCullough, and the OSCON Team

P.S. We're now accepting applications for the OSCON Nonprofit Pavilion. If you're a nonprofit organization using open source technologies to support your cause, mission, or community goals, we invite you to apply for a free spot in the Expo Hall before April 19.
