Have you ever been to OSCON? It’s the O’Reilly Open Source Conference. If you have, you wanna go back! If not, you wanna go!
OSCON is arguably the best open source conference around. It’s in Portland, OR (awesome city), July 15-18 and we are lucky to have one ticket to raffle off!
Flights are cheap. Check Southwest. Places to stay are abundant. Great hostels and hotels, Airbnb’s and more. Public xport is easy. It’s a bicyclist’s dream, too.
OSCON has great sessions on everything from languages to operating systems, architecture to project management. There’s an expo with loads of companies and it’s also a good place to network for jobs and staff.
After hours is also a blast with happy hours, activities like a fun run, more!
If you’re interested in checking it out, http://www.oscon.com
is the URL. You also get access to Safari, the online book library.
All in all, it’s the best educational and social experiment I know of, and if you want to go, just send me an email with your contact info and I’ll do a drawing shortly.
All the best,
