Hi there, 

We just opened registration and unveiled the program for this
year's OSCON, the annual gathering of the best and brightest in open
source. As a UG leader, there are few things we wanted to make sure you
knew about.

July 16-20, 2012 
Portland, OR 

UG Discount: Save 20%
Registration for OSCON 2012 is now open. User group leaders (and members) 
can save 20% on any OSCON pass by using discount code OS12UG when they 
register at:

Remember, the Best Price ends May 3 so register early to get the best

Help Promote OSCON and Earn Free Passes 
This year we're offering a rewards program to community groups who help 
promote OSCON. We'll give you a unique 20% discount code to distribute 
publicly and for every 5 people who use your code when they register, 
you'll earn a free 3-Day Pass for a colleague or friend. The 5 uses of 
your unique discount code must be for passes greater than $800 in value. 
If you're interested, please email usergroups at oreilly.com and we'll send 
you a unique code.

Now Accepting Applications for the Nonprofit Pavilion 
If you know of a nonprofit organization using open source technologies to 
support their cause, mission, or community goals, encourage them to apply 
for a complimentary booth in the Nonprofit Pavilion at OSCON. In addition 
to the booth space, we'll also provide a 3-Day Pass to OSCON and exposure
on oscon.com. Applications are due May 3.

Community Leadership Summit
The Community Leadership Summit is returning to Portland July 14-15 
(the weekend before OSCON) at the Oregon Convention Center. This free 
2-day event is your chance to join a diverse range range of community 
leaders and managers to discuss, debate, and explore the many avenues of 
building strong community in an open unconference setting, complimented 
by additional structured presentations and networking. For more 
information and to register:

Birds of a Feather Sessions (BoFs)
If you are coming to OSCON and looking for a smaller, more intimate setting 
to chat with other people interested in the same topics as you, we encourage 
you to lead a BoF. 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). 
We provide the space and time, you provide the engaging topic.

Ignite OSCON
We'll once again be hosting Ignite OSCON on Monday evening, July 16. If you 
had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides 
and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Would you pitch a project? 
Teach a hack? Get the wheels turning and start thinking about what you want 
you'd present. We'll open up the formal call for Ignite talks later this

Submit a Proposal for the Open Edu Track 
We're looking for speakers to lead sessions in OSCON's Open Edu track. We want 
to hear about the key projects, APIs, open standards, and technological 
challenges in education technology as it accelerates the progress of U.S. public
schools. Proposals are due April 25.

We hope to see you in Portland this Summer,
