In the first half of 2015, we have been traveling around the world to participate in key Open Tech organization events from OpenStack to Cloud Foundry and Docker. It seems fitting that as we reach this midway point in the year that we turn our sights on OSCON to celebrate ALL of our favorite open technologies in one place. OSCON is a gathering place of the open source community, both celebrating and exploring open source technologies through a deep perspective on where weâ€™ve been and where weâ€™re headed. Because this conference draws 5000+ developers, coders, engineers, entrepreneurs and technology innovators, itâ€™s the place to be if you are â€śopenâ€ť minded.
IBM is proud to be a Premier Diamond sponsor of OSCON because we have a lot to celebrate in terms of open technology. Visit us at the IBM booth #501 to explore a wide range of IBM offerings running on Open Technologies from IBM Power and Z Systems to SoftLayer, IBM Cloudant and IBM Bluemix. Take some time to explore all open technologies in depth by visiting our Open Tech Zone in the booth which features open source tools and technologies across all industries and solution areas. And because we definitely like to take time out for some fun, set aside time to visit our Play Zone featuring fun and innovative demos for you to play with to build your own apps as well as relax with our IoT Foosball table. If you REALLY need a break, you can even take in a massage in the SoftLayer Zone of our booth!
While at OSCON, you can also learn about IBMâ€™s leadership in open source initiatives, services and solutions through our featured presentations. IBMers will be sharing updates and insights into our technology and the many communities which we support and contribute to, including OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, Docker and Node.js.
