"I don't think you can go wrong with this conference"

Positives:

Learned a ton! I couldn't believe how many helpful and outgoing people were willing to speak with a newbie like myself to open source software

Negatives:

No complaints that I can think of...I'm hoping that I will find the same value in the event each year I go as I continue to level up

"Get updated on open source and meet passionate developers"

Positives:

OSCON brings together many passionate open source advocates, many from large business entities. Most attendees are from technical background, mostly software developers, but you can also find community leaders and executives. OSCON is a great venue for open source technology companies to connect with potential customers and partners over similar values. A great event to meet technical talent for your company.

Negatives:

OSCON is a wonderful event on all fronts, but it is only relevant for exhibitors who have some component of open source to their technology. One other thing to keep in mind is that about 50% of the attendees visit using a free expo-only pass and may not represent a specific company or have budget decision making roles. If you expect these numbers, though, it won't come as a surprise on the show floor.
