Birds of a Feather Sessions

Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions provide face to face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. BOFs can be organized for individual projects (Mono, JXTA, bioPerl), or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards). BOFs are entirely up to you. We post your topic online and onsite and provide the space and time. You provide the engaging topic.

If you're interested in moderating your own BOF, please fill out the questionnaire, today. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Vee McMillen via email: .

Please note that audio/visual equipment, including projection equipment, will not be available for BOF sessions. If you require any audio/visual equipment, you may contact , the official convention audio/visual producer, for rental rates.

The following BOF's have been scheduled for OSCON. Please check the "Birds of a Feather Sessions" corkboard located throughout the foyers of the Hotel for up-to-the-minute changes and information.
