If you’re in or around Portland, or will be from July 25th to 29th, and you’re interested in open source software, the Oregon Convention Center will be the place to be. O’Reilly’s 2011 OSCON (Open Source Convention) will be taking place there, and will be hosting a variety of workshops, keynotes, tutorials, and other geeky events.
According to the Google Open Source Blog, 17 Google employees will be on hand throughout the festivities, discussing Google products and OSS in general.
For a listing of the Googler events, see this post.
With tickets ranging from $25 to $2190 (the expo hall only pass is an outlier in terms of expense), there are nine price points. Some allow attending of specific types of events, while others break down admissions into categories.
On July 28th, Google is holding another “Ask Google Engineers Anything” session, at which apparently, anything goes.
