The O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) is an annual convention for the discussion of free and open source software. It is organized by the publisher O'Reilly Media and is held each summer in the United States.

History[edit]

The first OSCON was held in 1999.[1] [2] The first Perl Conference took place in 1997.

Notable events[edit]

  • OSCON grew out of The Perl Conference, but the amount of Perl content has continued to decline year over year.
  • The OpenOffice.org open source project was announced at the 2000 conference in Monterey.[3]
  • The OpenStack open source project was launched at the 2010 conference.[4]
  • OSCON has been the host to Larry Wall's State of the Onion keynotes.
