OSCON, the open source community's annual gathering
Open source is now found everywhere--from the bottom of the programming stack to the very top--so we're changing the way we organize these stories at OSCON. We've adopted a more holistic approach, focusing on the following topics as a means to consider and solve critical, real-world problems:
- Identity – An emerging and nuanced facet in the digital age and an exciting cross-functional track at OSCON 2015.
- Security – We'll explore security from top to bottom, offering frameworks and libraries, strategies for testing, and field reports of both security failure and success.
- Privacy – Computers remember our interactions at a level of detail the physical world never has. Do we want to be remembered, and for how long?
- Performance – From compilation and interpreter time to DOM manipulation, browser responsiveness, and network latency, we'll explore performance in all its facets.
- Mobility – We'll look at what it means to have a successful mobile game plan, from wearables to native apps.
- People – Making projects work requires communications, collaboration, and respect; we'll look at the ways a new generation of tools and approaches can help you work.
- Architecture – Software architecture is a massive multidisciplinary subject, covering many roles and responsibilities--and a key position in the success of any business.
- Scale – You’ve created a great web interface that is well designed, secure, and works well in a beta with 100 consumers, but how about 10,000, 1,000,000, or more?
- Storage – Find your way among the myriad choices for storing data and optimizing your systems for stability, distribution, convenience, and performance.
- Teaching – You want to share your best practices, projects, and tools with the world, but how do you go about sharing this knowledge? We'll examine learning theory and methods of teaching.
- Design – It's critical for success; learn how to incorporate design best practices from the very beginning of your project and all the way through.
- Solve – Harness the power of math to manipulate, secure, and create data.
- Data – Let's tackle data’s continued, growing influence over the entire business world and how you can make it work for you.
- Foundations – A strong foundation in computational thinking, problem solving, and programming best practices makes for a successful programmer.
Stay tuned. We'll unveil the preliminary program and open registration in March.
