Featured Speakers

Open source has changed a lot since 1999. So has OSCON.

OSCON has informed and educated IT professionals about the use of open source in real-world situations for nearly two decades. With open source in nearly everything, software engineers, operations teams, and developers 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. Come to OSCON to explore and solve critical, real-world issues around these tracks:

  • Protect — Identity, privacy, and security are emerging and nuanced facets in the digital age and an exciting cross-functional track at OSCON 2015 in Amsterdam.
