Hi all,

Message received from O'Reilly...

Registration has just opened for the first
O'Reilly European Open Source Convention  
17-20 October 2005 at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam

Save 400 euros if you sign up before early registration pricing ends on 29 August:

At long last, OSCON is coming to Europe. It's a new adventure for O'Reilly Media, and we hope you'll join us in making O'Reilly European Open Source Convention, aka EuroOSCON, one of the most informative and inspiring "gathering of the tribes" on the Continent.

What can you expect from EuroOSCON? As our fearless program chair Nat Torkington puts it, "We have a whole track for business, covering developing nations, business models, and the future of open source in Europe. Java, Linux, and Emerging Topics are huge.  We'll have an Asterisk tutorial and a strong Python track. From web technology like AJAX, Ruby on Rails, and Plone  to server technology like MySQL and Apache, we've sought out the most essential open source technology. We're celebrating the best speakers and unique needs of Europe as well as bringing over top American open source experts."

We're still fine-tuning the progrom, but some of the current EuroOSCON speakers and topics highlights include:

- Keynote presentations: David Heinemeier-Hansson, Cory Doctorow, Tim O'Reilly, Nathan Torkington, Rael Dornfest, Marc Hedlund
- Business: Doug Levin, Donald Rosenberg, Danese Cooper
- Linux: Alan Cox, Luis Casas Luengo, Greg Stein, Frederic Descamp, Erwin Tenhumberg
- Java: Brian Sam-Bodden, Erik Hatcher
- PHP: Rasmus Lerdorf, Sebastian Bergmann, Daniel Guermeur
- Python: Alex Martelli, Joel Burton, Martijn Faassen
- Perl: Larry Wall, Damian Conway, Abigail, Leon Brocard, Autrijus Tang
- Databases: David Axmark, Theo Schlossnagle, Jutta Horstmann
- Security: Ben Laurie, Marty Pauley, John Viega
- Emerging Topics (Ruby on Rails, AJAX, Subversion): Kathy Sierra, Paul Everitt, Martin King-Turner

We invite you to gather with leaders, programmers, innovators, and users of every open source persuasion at the premiere of EuroOSCON. EuroOSCON is a place where you can hone your skills, learn about the newest features and versions, hear about open source trends and innovations from creators and experts, make new professional and personal connections--and best of all, have fun doing it.
