Open@Amazon is open to all OSCON 2019 pass holders. (Please note that seating is limited. Please arrive early to ensure seating availability.)

Start off your OSCON 2019 in Portland with AWS! At the intersection of Cloud and Open Source, this day is dedicated to helping the audience understand how to engage, participate, contribute and grow with AWSOpen.

In the course of this full-day event we will discuss what it takes to keep open source open, and where we see open source heading over the next 20 years. We’ll also cover the story of how AWS open sourced the SAM toolset, tour the AWS IDE Toolkits and how you can help to make the tooling better for everyone, and more. We’ll have team members around to help answer questions, and close the day out with a happy hour.
