Ignite OSCON 2016

Call closed 11:59pm April 15, 2016 CDT.


Ignite OSCON happens 5:00pm–6:30pm CDT, Monday evening, May 16 in Ballroom A of the Austin Convention Center, following the day’s tutorials.

We’re interested in any topic as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to philosophy. The night includes time to network and chat; it’s a great opportunity to meet interesting people from all over the world! We’re always looking for new speakers, but are not interested in product demos. Instead, present a how-to, a travelogue, something inspirational, lessons learned, or a forecast. Speakers are limited to 20 slides, which automatically advance every 15 seconds—that’s the fun of Ignite!

Ignite speakers receive a Bronze pass to OSCON, which includes access to conference keynotes, sessions, and events on Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, May 19.
