What is POSSCON?

The Palmetto Open Source Software Conference brings a world-class lineup of IT thought leaders to the Southeast for three days to discuss the latest issues for developers, executives, government leaders and educators.

Open source software continues to be one of the hottest and most relevant topics in information technology as organizations strive to meet the increasing demand for innovation with shrinking budgets. That’s why the goal of the organizers is to provide affordable access to quality open source education.

In 2010, more than 350 people from 14 states, 20 colleges and universities and about 100 business and government organizations attended.

In 2011, POSSCON will be held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center for all three days and will feature an executive forum, hands-on workshops, and social and networking events. Programming tracks will be offered for developers, educators and business and government IT leaders.

The mix of people in addition to stellar speakers, affordable registration fees, cutting-edge staging and Southern hospitality make POSSCON a must-attend event. People from varied backgrounds have attended since 2008 and all say the same thing – “this is a truly unique event and a unique blend of people.” We’re proud of that.

Experience POSSCON 2011. You have to be here!
