Second Open Source Developers Conference in France

The concept is the french version of the OSDC conferences all around the world, that take place in Australia, Taiwan, Israel, Malaysia...

Our goal is to gather French-speaking developers from different communities around innovative technologies.

This conference aims to break walls between communities of developers. Those developers get together around languages such as Perl, Python, Ruby, Smalltalk... or Open Source technologies like PostgreSQL, LLVM, Apache, Git...

The conference

This 2nd edition will take place at Le Carrefour Numérique of the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, in Paris, on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October.
