EuroOSCON 2006 takes place in Brussels, Belgium on 18-21 September. The Call for Participation opens in February 2006; registration opens in May 2006. To receive EuroOSCON news and announcements, sign up for the EuroOSCON newsletter.
The 2005 O'Reilly European Open Source Convention in Amsterdam brought together diverse projects and communities from across the continent and around the world to address the changes and challenges unique to the European computing community. Over four days, Convention participants explored the remarkable range of open source technology and business innovations, from AJAX, Ruby on Rails, and Plone to open source stacks and IT best practices for open source adoption, integration, and deployment. Visit the Coverage Page for news, blogs, and photos of the event.
EuroOSCON targets the specific needs of European developers, programmers, strategists, entrepreneurs, and technologists, helping them to deliver the benefits of open source technology to their companies and organizations. Tutorials, sessions, panel discussions, and on-stage conversations focus on all aspects of building applications, services, and systems with an emphasis on practical skills.
EuroOSCON is the crossroads of all things open source, so it's the one place where you can:
See what's on the horizon for open source locally and globally
Make new professional and personal connections
Discover solutions to your open source challenges
Meet the movers and shakers in the OS community
Hear success stories and cautionary tales from companies and organizations of every size
Discover new products, technologies, skills, and experts--all under one roof
Network within and across the whole spectrum of open source communities
EuroOSCON has come and gone in Amsterdam. It was a great experience and attendee comments ranged from "wonderful" to "I'll be back again next year!" We learned a lot, too, and visions for next year are already dancing in our heads. OSCON will definitely be back in Europe next fall, as well as in Portland in July.
