OSCON is one of the most important technology events of the year because, for an entire week, all the people that make open source possible get together to share their expertise, promote efforts, and discuss the way forward. This year we decided to invite along some of our best partners to help more people connect with some of the world’s leading open source projects.
If you’re at OSCON this year, stop by booth 501 and visit with representatives from WordPress, Drupal and phpBB. We reserved an extra large booth and, aside from our ping pong table and displays, turned over our space so they could host “mini-booths” of their own.
We think it’s really important that as many open source projects are represented at OSCON as possible. The open source community, as well as our partners themselves, gain a lot by attending and we’re thrilled to be able to help make this happen.
