Why You Should Go to OSCON

Since the popularity of open source is growing exponentially, it’s not surprising to hear that we teach a lot of open source classes. We like to stay up on the latest and greatest in open source technologies, so we’re attending OSCON in Portland, July 20-24 – and we want you to join us.

Open source is a cost-effective way to leverage solutions without a huge investment in commercial programs. Not only does open source help you increase productivity, it can help lower the cost of deployment; innovations in open source technologies can help increase efficiency.

You might think conferences such as OSCON are meant just for developers working with open source, but this isn’t true. As a manager for technical teams, there are a lot of benefits to you attending OSCON. Like most conferences, you’ll experience benefits such as hearing from industry thought-leaders, meeting a concentrated pool of talent, and getting some brand recognition at OSCON. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in unusual events such as the OSCON 5k Glow Run/Walk and Finish Line Festival, Open Cloud Day, OpenStack Basics featuring HP Helion OpenStack, and BoF(Birds of a Feather) sessions.

When you’re managing teams working on projects that involve open source code, you need to be aware of licensing compliance. You also need to know what support is available for the open source tools your teams use. At OSCON, you’ll learn about new projects, services, languages and tools, and how to decide what best fits your company’s strategic goals.

We’ve got one OSCON Bronze pass available to give away to a lucky winner. The pass includes access to all keynotes, sessions, and events. Fill out the entry form here; the winner will be notified by July 13. Even if you don’t win, you can save 20% on your ticket by using our discount code, DI20, when you register.

Hope to see you there!
