Open source: a catalyst for innovation and transformation 

It's the 20th anniversary celebration this year at OSCON, the longest running conference with open source as the central theme. OSCON is the place to get an overarching perspective on the decisions that strengthen and grow companies, a deep knowledge of key open source technology to make it happen, and access to a community that can help both you and your organization thrive.

Innovative and emerging open source projects will be at the center of OSCON 2018. Each and every track has been selected because of its open source nature and the significant change it presents to software development. We're focusing on these topics as a means to consider and solve critical, real-world problems:

  • Blockchain beyond Bitcoin
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Emerging languages such as Kotlin, Go, Elm
  • Live coding: Python, R, Java, and C# using Jupyter Notebook
  • Software methodologies, from ideation to deployment
  • Cloud strategies and implementation
  • Evolutionary architecture
  • Distributed computing, from industrial to commercial
  • Edge computing
  • Open source in enterprise case studies
  • SMACK stack: Spark, Mesos, Akka, Cassandra, and Kafka

Sporting events are no longer the most preferred target for terrorists, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Outdoor events, conferences, festivals, and other events featuring public figures are all vulnerable. And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
