You know that conferences are one of the most efficient ways to learn about best practices and new tools and techniques, expand your circle of smart thinkers, comparison shop the latest products, and get inspiration to streamline and energize your day-to-day operations. But do you—or your boss—need help justifying continuing education? Below are a few ideas and points to make your case to attend OSCON.
Let your boss know that you'll also educate the rest of the team:
It's where the open source world meets. OSCON brings together people like you from across the open source universe, offering a broader perspective than niche events and exposure to the best of the best.
Be challenged and inspired. Hear from our roster of over 300 speakers, who come from a variety of backgrounds, about how they, and you, are changing the world through open source.
Understand the changing world of open source technology. Program chairs Edd Dumbill and Sarah Novotny and their OSCON Program Committee work carefully to take the pulse of the technology landscape, briefing you on key trends and developments like Cloud, Scala, Health IT, NoSQL, and mobile.
Keep your skills up to date. OSCON offers top-quality tutorials, sessions on a broad range of topics, a product-rich Expo Hall, and high-level keynotes. Choose the registration package that fits your educational needs.
Get it from the source. With 17 different tracks and over 175 sessions, you'll get to hear and talk with project leaders, experts, and vendors.
Understand how your business can use open source. Established and successful users of open source share their experience and advice on business, community, and legal topics.
Share and Collaborate. Open source is all about the people, and OSCON's participants are eager to share ideas and debate issues. The hallways of OSCON have been the birthplace of many ideas and collaborations, and OSCON’s after hours events are a great way to meet and network with like-minded people.
Meet face-to-face with the people behind the latest in open source technology. The lively Expo Hall at OSCON plays host to a broad variety of companies and organizations working in open source. Network with vendors and community leaders, and find out who's hiring.
A celebration of open source. OSCON is brought to you by O'Reilly Media Inc.. For more than 30 years O'Reilly has been an active participant in the technology and open source community, and has a long history of advocacy, meme-making, and evangelism
