I’m packing my bags and heading to OSCON: the open source conference sponsored by O’Reilly. The conference is held July 23rd – 27th in Portland, OR.
This will be my first time going to OSCON. It was a tough decision because there were some other conferences I wouldn’t have mind going to.
The first two days of the conferences, Monday and Tuesday, are tutorial days. They cost extra, but you get 3-1/2 hours of exposure. I’ve decided I’m going to the following tutorials:
- Pthreads programming: a hands-on introduction
- Linux performance monitoring
- New parallel programming tools for a multicore world
- Next-gen interaction with Ajax, Comet, and PHP
There are a couple others that sound interesting, I have decided to focus on content that is applicable to the direction CB1 is heading.
Early bird discounts end Monday, June 4th, so you’d better register today.
