Ignite OSCON 2017

Call closed 11:59pm 04/03/2017 CDT.


Ignite OSCON happens at the Austin Convention Center on Monday, May 8 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm.

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 10 and Thursday, May 11.
