2013 Will Feature World-class Speakers, Sessions and Training

  • Some of the best speakers in open source will again attend and participate – in a boutique, personal environment.

    We’ll focus specifically on developers, system administrators and IT managers.  If you do any of this you’ll find excellent information in a session or training format.

    We’ll focus on established technologies and topics, like Linux, Drupal, MySQL, LibreOffice, Security, Virtualization, Licensing and Patents.

    We’ll focus on emerging technologies like Riak, MongoDB, Software Defined Networking, JavaScript, backbone.js, Python, Clojure, Couchbase and HTML5.

    The biggest companies in the open source space will again attend and participate, including Mozilla, SIOS, SparkFun, Red Hat, Engine Yard, GitHub, ForgeRock, HP, and Google.

      The synergy between developers, business people, and teachers makes POSSCON pretty unique, I haven't really seen this anywhere else.

      It was very nicely run and I think you did a bang-up job. You should all be proud of what you did.

      This is like nothing you've ever seen before.  You can look at the pictures, you can watch the videos... but just like a concert, you have to be there.
