The online Attendee Directory can be used to easily contact and network with other attendees before, during, and after the event. We encourage you to do so and get the conversation started with others attending OSCON 2014.
Here is a quick overview of how to access and what you can do on the Attendee Directory.
Set up Your Profile
Visit your profile management page to fill in your your personal details. Be sure to add your Twitter ID and upload a profile photo to make it easier for people to connect with you onsite.
As an icebreaker and to become more "findable," you might want to include the following information in your personal bio ("Biography" field):
Build & Share Your Personal Schedule
A link to your personal schedule will be on your profile. Keeping your schedule up to date to allow fellow OSCON 2014 attendees to compare interests and locate you on-site.
Sort your view of your contacts using the "Show" drop down menu. You can also use the search field on this page to search for attendees by name, company, and bio/geo keywords (ex: "finance", "Python", or "mobile").
Click on the "Messages" tab on your OSCON 2014 Dashboard to view and respond to any messages sent to or by you. Your notification settings will allow these messages to be sent directly to you via email.
To discontinue receiving an email notification whenever someone messages you, marks you as a contact, or would like to meet you, set your Notification preferences.
