 Convention Coverage

Birds of a Feather Sessions

Sign ups for Birds of a Feather Sessions online are now closed.

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 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.

Due to the evening events we have scheduled, BOF times will only be avaiable on Tuesday evening from 19:30 - 21:30.

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.
