We've just opened registration for the O'Reilly Open Source Convention, July 25-29, 2011 in Portland, OR. This year we're adding two new conferences, co-located with OSCON, focusing on key areas where open source is driving innovation: OSCON Data andOSCON Java.

Don't forget to arrive early to attend the Community Leadership Summit on July 23-24. We're hoping to get as many user group leaders and other community contributors as we can to participate at this free annual event.
