My Experience... OSCON 2011

I used to attend conferences quite a lot in the 1990’s; in fact I was on the planning and speaker selection committee for the CA-Technicon conference for 2 years. OSCON is the first major conference I have been to since I really discovered and adopted the principles of the Open Source movement. So it was doubly important from my perspective to get to this conference.  Additionally, I had started the next phase of my career only 3 weeks prior by taking a new senior consulting role with OSSCube and I had yet to meet my new “handlers”.

OSCON Participation: Great Team Work…Great Learning!

The recently held OSCON 2011 Convention in Portland, OR was a fantastic experience for the OSSCube team. This conference gave me the opportunity to meet and speak with many technology evangelists around the world. I delivered a major presentation on SmartWorks Project (a federal level use system that OSSCube has helped design and roll out) during day two of the event while the, President Lavanya Rastogi and Head of Business Development & Customer Advocacy Vivek Agrawal alternated booth staffing duty and new business prospect meetings throughout the event.
