See the true value of open source at OSCON in London

Sebastopol, CAOSCON, the O'Reilly Open Source Convention, celebrates the rich spectrum of open source technologies 17-19 October, 2016, at the Hilton London Metropole.

OSCON chairs Francine Bennett, Simon Wardley, and Roumeliotis have created a program of open source leaders and innovators.
