August 5, 2016

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 brings the software engineering and developer community together to learn and practice what's new in open source languages, tools, and techniques.

"Open source now runs the enterprise, and OSCON shows businesses and practitioners how to leverage open source to get ahead, and stay ahead, of the competition," says Rachel Roumeliotis, Strategic Content Director at O'Reilly Media.

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

Featured speakers include:

  • Cory Doctorow
  • Liam Maxwell
  • Karen Sandler

  • Technical Director (HMG)
  • Danese Cooper
  • Patrick Chanezon
  • Lorna Mitchell
  • Alasdair Allen
  • Silona Bonewald

O'Reilly's just-released 2016 European Software Development Salary Survey illustrates the value of open source to individuals as well as to businesses, and the survey's findings are sure to power many lively discussions.
