OSCamp 2006 at OSCON, July 24-28
OSCamp 2006, included with the free Expo Hall pass, is a grassroots
cooperative effort with O'Reilly. OSCamp seeks to organize the fringe of
activity that has grown up around OSCON during the last several years so
the event can rock even more! Come together to network, write code, have
fun and learn about the cool things that are afoot in the movement.
Bring your friends and join a good party that's growing even better!

OSCamp is an "open" space for meeting, for learning, for connecting, for
writing code...with no limits or agendas. The only charge is to come and
learn and contribute as much as you can. The agenda is created and
modified "on the fly" by the participants. You can add to the agenda any
issue of importance to you. It will be discussed and addressed to the
greatest extent possible. All of the key points and next steps will be
captured online at OSCamp.org so the entire Freedom/Libre/Open community
can benefit from our work.

Register by July 10 for the exhibit hall pass to be included in the
snacks count for OSCAMP.
and make sure you use the special code os06oscamp.
