Recap: CPOSC 2008 (Central PA Open Source Conference)

I had the good fortune of attending the CPOSC 2008 (Central PA Open Source Conference) this past Sunday in Harrisburg, PA. This is their first year and they did a great job with the organization of everything and especially of garnering well-qualified speakers. Tickets were a bargin at $29 each and included breakfast, lunch and a snack too.

There were a lot of presentations to choose from but I attended the following:
  • Javascript now works:An Introduction to jQuery — Nathan Powell
  • Running your business on Enterprise Open Source Software — Terry Johnson
  • Getting Involved in an Open Source Project — Bob Igo
  • Architecting a Community: How Mozdev Runs and Grows — Douglas Warner

I really felt like I picked up a lot of great information...and it didn't hurt that the food was good (and plentiful - Thanks Anteil) and I even won a door prize! If you can attend next year, I'd highly recommend it. It's great day for learning, networking and supporting the Open Source Community.
