Sessions by Track

Business
From the straight-forward to the complex, we tackle them with experienced veterans of open source businesses. This track covers developing nations, business models, the future of open source in Europe, and more.

Databases
Open source RDBMSs are rolling roughshod over the over-priced commercial giants. You'll learn essential techniques and advanced tips from the people who built those systems.

Emerging Topics
The Emerging Topics track is where the most promising projects, proposals, and controversies are parsed. Expect everything from hardware hacking to Haskell, by way of design and uncommon programming languages.

Java
This year's Java track focuses on the practical, giving you the tools you need to get the job done with this hardworking, platform-independent language.

Linux
We've got something for every Linux user, whether the classic Jolt-fuelled midnight hacker or the steely-eyed enterprise bean counter. In the Linux Track, you'll gain insight into the creation, use, and future direction of Linux and its killer apps.

Perl
The Perl track covers the latest trends and developments in Perl, including Perl 6, CPAN, debugging, and Internationalization.

PHP
Simple yet powerful, PHP is one of the leading open source development languages for creating dynamic web content. OSCON sessions focus on PHP 5, web development, and application security.

Products & Services
Hear real world examples and case studies from our EuroOSCON Sponsors. Meet and engage representatives from IBM, Computer Associates, Microsoft, SpikeSource, Red Hat, Alfresco and others.

Python
Python has evolved from an emerging language to a widely accepted tool that traditional programmers use for real day-to-day development tasks on a number of different platforms. Python experts explore the latest developments from the worlds of Python.

Security
Ignore application, network, and data security at your own risk. We've got the essentials you need to make informed decisions and lock down your systems.
