MS Open Tech @ OSCON 2012

If you’re at OSCON 2012 this week, drop by the Microsoft booth (#601) – we’d love to see you!

We have many members of the MS Open Tech team here, as well as OSCON attendees from a variety of Microsoft teams and product groups who work with open source software. Our booth features a huge an 82 inch multi-touch PixelSense display (which is just plain fun to play around with), and you can have your picture taken by photographer Julian Cash, who is bringing his unique photographic style to our booth for the week. We’ll also have demos of some of the many OSS technologies that work well with Windows Azure and other Microsoft technologies, with experts on hand to answer all of your questions.

Last night’s Opening Reception and Camp OSCON attendee party (sponsored by Microsoft and O’Reilly) were a blast, as you can see from the photos above.  Tomorrow morning, be sure to attend the plenary session in the Portland Ballroom from 9-10, where our own Gianugo Rabellino will be one of the participants, and on Friday  at 11:00 in room E147, don’t miss Microsoft’s Scott Hanselman’s session on "Will Microsoft ever get serious about Open Source?"

Hope to see you at OSCON today!
