OSCON: leading the way for the evolving software community

Not long ago, IT teams smuggled open source software through the back door and into production because these were the best tools for the job. Today, If you deconstructed your stack or took a survey of your favorite tools, you'd find a preponderance of open source software: still the best tools for the job. But this is history. Open source won. End of story...and the beginning of a new one.

For more than 17 years, OSCON has informed and educated software engineers, operations teams, and developers about the use of open source in real-world situations. With open source in nearly everything, today's IT professionals need OSCON more than ever. At OSCON, you'll learn from the combined experience of the open source community—yesterday's pioneers and today's innovators. Get insights and strategies for the best use of open source tools and technologies, as well as exposure to the full stack, in all possible configurations. Test-drive technologies and discover ideas that you can take back to test in your workplace.

Join us July 20-24 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OR. Meet the full stack, face to face, and rule. Need help convincing your manager? We've got you covered.

Help support diversity in the technical community

Please consider joining us in supporting this worthy organization by making a modest donation when you sign up. O'Reilly Media will match those donations at the end of the conference.
