Schedule Now Live! 24 total sessions + 4 workshops
As the very prescient article written by Bill Gates in 1996 so eloquently stated, content is king. It’s the primary reason people attend a technology conference (in-person, virtual, or otherwise), and that adage is certainly applicable to Open Source 101 at Home.
The schedule features 24 total sessions and 4 extended workshops. In addition, the speakers are subject matter experts and truly world-class.
A few important items about the 2020 Open Source at Home schedule:
Total conference time is only 5 hours.
We’ve limited the total conference time to only 5 hours, from start to finish. We understand it can be tough to set aside an entire day to watch your screen, so we’re not asking you to do it. Work in the AM, then join us beginning at lunch and learn and network.
All sessions are being recorded
With 6 concurrent sessions running in the afternoon, it’s quite possible two sessions you’re interested in are happening at the same time. Well, you’re in luck. All sessions are being recorded and all will be available for playback at the convenience of the attendee. Watch when your schedule allows.
Keynotes are only 15 minutes
Keynotes are chosen because they have wide applicability and the topic is important. On May 12, both keynote talks will deliver great content and value, but will be condensed to pack in as much as possible and will move quickly.
Each session will include Q&A
We’ve asked speakers to include Q&A as part of every breakout session and workshop. With virtual events we feel this is important even vital because it enables interaction, engagement and dialogue. So, have those questions ready!
4 extended workshops
We love workshops because they allow for deeper dives and more hands-on learning. And 4 really good ones will be featured. Topics covered are foundational and include three (3) 90 minute sessions – design, developer workflow automation, and 2FA enabling open source applications – and one 4-hour session – introduction to containers.
Essential processes and technologies will be featured
Our goal is to cover processes and technologies we feel are both foundational and worth knowing more about.
