It's the Final Countdown!

It's the final countdown to FOSS4G. Earth may remain intact, but your life will melt away if you don't attend! Only 23 days to go at the time of writing... (see the full post to see the countdown timer)

While the milliseconds spin by, mesmerising you, consider that 8% of our FOSS4G workshops are already sold out and others are quickly filling up. Review the workshops here.

If you've been holding out to the last minute to register, now is the time, to avoid disappointment. On the other hand, any workshop would be worth attending!

Have a friend, colleague, supervisor or spouse who doesn't have a whole week to spare for this pivotal event? Encourage them to take to the one day "Intro" workshop - check out that line up of speakers!
