Fun at OSCON
OSCON runs five full days--and nights. One of the best things about OSCON
is connecting with interesting people you just wouldn't run into anywhere
else. To help you make those connections, we're planning all kinds of
receptions, special presentations (hint: Damian Conway and "The Da Vinci
Codebase"), tours, awards, "off-campus" shindigs, and a couple of other
surprises, too. Watch our Events page for more details:
