Submit your proposal by February

This summer, we’ll celebrate 15 years of
and we’re inviting you to be part of the celebration by joining the ranks
of esteemed OSCON speakers.

Open source has come a long way--from the early days when a handful of
visionaries were working to make the case for free and open software
(imagine wanting access to your source code!) to today, when open source is
the standard for everyday programming languages, databases, utilities, and
operating systems. These days, *who doesn’t work with open source*?
*Speaking at OSCON is a great way to give back to the community*

The OSCON *call for
wrap up on Monday, February 4. When you speak at OSCON, you not only
share your knowledge with your peers, but you get your projects, ideas, and
your company in front of a savvy and connected audience. You don’t need to
be a guru or experienced speaker; it’s enough to have something worthwhile
to share and the desire to communicate it to others.

This year, make it happen. Let us hear from you by February 4. *See a list
