OS//OS = OS

By Peter Kerr 13/04/2015


The OS//OS (Open Source//Open Society) conference has got itself a new definition – at least for the OS bit.

OVER SOLD!

What a great problem to have.

But maybe the organisers had a cunning plan up their sleeve, because they’ve collared some extra space at Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre on Thursday and Friday this week (16/17 April) and there’s an extra 50 tickets for sale, over and above the original 300.

At $199 each, for the quality of people speaking about all things Open (except maybe golf) and people attending, that’s a fair bit of bang for buck.

Undoubtedly, the geeks, nerds, developers, designers, IT people and interested others like me will be keen to hear what GitHub, the world’s largest respository of open source code to co-host its first ever event outside America is a pretty big feather in Wellington’s tech cap.

Mind you, we’re pretty spoiled for smart digital events in the capital; so just how many tickets co-organisers Loomio and Chalkle thought they might be able to sell would’ve been anyone’s guess.

Well guess no longer.

There’s a lot of interest – book your tickets pretty damn quickly (shortcut here) if you want to be among the lucky last.

As I post this, half of those 50 extra tickets have already been sold
