Calling All Technologists! POSSCON is back in 2015

posscon-2015The following blog post was written by Todd Lewis.

We are extremely pleased to announce the Palmetto Open Source Software Conference, better known as POSSCON, will be held in Columbia on Tuesday, April 14 and Wednesday, April 15. This will mark the eighth year of the event and will be the biggest and best ever.

The conference will again focus on ‘open’ technology and will target a technical audience to include developers/programmers, engineers, scientists, database and system administrators, as well as CTO’s, CIO’s, CEO’s and IT managers of all types.

Five distinct tracks will be offered, including Front End development, Back End development, Cloud/DevOps, Operations, and a 101 track designed to provide introductory level content on the most popular topics in the ‘open’ space.

The overall format of the event will include traditional 45 minute sessions on Tuesday, April 14 and extended 2.5 – 3.0 hour workshops on Wednesday, April 15 to allow for ‘deeper dive’ training on 6-8 of the most in demand technologies.

In addition to the five tracks and the overall format of 45 minute session and 2.5-3.0 hour workshops, IT-oLogy is proud to present the conference the same week as ConvergeSE and The Indie Grits Festival. While POSSCON will be held on Tuesday/Wednesday, Indie Grits will kick off Wednesday night with its Opening Party and Converge will begin on Thursday. The cumulative result will be an entire week filled with technology, design, film and art.

Early Bird tickets will go on sale in early January. Anyone interested is strongly encouraged to purchase tickets quickly as the event consistently sells out.
