Nat Torkington previews OSCON 2006

by Daniel H. Steinberg

This year's Open Source conference runs July 24-28 in Portland, Oregon. Nat Torkington talks about what you can expect at this year's show. He explains that each technology has a great set of talks, but the strength of OSCON is that so many different topics are covered in one conference. It allows you to stretch and learn things from, and share ideas with, people solving similar problems using different tools. (5 minutes, 47 seconds)
