OSCON is back in Portland, bringing the complete coverage of open source technology and projects, no matter the origin or affiliation. Rather than focus on a single language or aspect, our program solely focuses on projects in areas of innovation including AI, infrastructure, blockchain, edge computing, architecture, and emerging languages.
This year we introduce a new type of learning experience in the form of live coding sessions (no slides allowed!) from the likes of Joel Grus, Josh Long, and Eve Porcello on how to build a deep learning library, reactive spring, and GraphQL. See these speakers solve problems and overcome demo issues to show you exactly how to get to the best possible outcome. Good programming isn't magic!
Also new this year—the OSCON Business Summit designed specifically for executives, business leaders, and strategists. The high-level case studies presented will feature the most promising and successful developments in open source for the enterprise. You'll get an insider's look at the open source implementations that will have the most profound impact on your business.
For 20 years, OSCON has been the focal point of the open source movement. The inception of OSCON came from an event focused on Perl and grew to cover the other scripting languages. It has since evolved into the destination for all things free and open. The event has also provided a platform for the launch of major initiatives such as Kubernetes 1.0 and OpenStack—both announced at OSCON.
Today, OSCON continues to be the catalyst for innovation, bringing together large corporations and grass-roots communities to share insights and foster change. Open source helps technology to thrive, and in its 20th year, OSCON continues on with the tradition of bringing you the latest technological advances and a path to successfully implement open source in your workflow.
OSCON welcomes anyone who's passionate about open source:
