OpenCON was born in September 2004 from an idea by Matteo Cantoni (goony) and Fabio Cazzin (fabioFVZ). The main aim is to create a conference entirely dedicated to OpenBSD and to gather users and OpenBSD enthusiasts from all over the world to let them share their knowledge, experiences and information about the operating system.
The conference is entirely organized by OpenBEER, the italian OpenBSD users group. OpenCON lasts about two days and, as usual, many official developers have already confirmed their presence. The main topics will be: information security, secure programming, and anything related to OpenBSD. The event is completely free of charge, but it will be possible to buy tshirts and gadgets to fund both OpenCON and OpenBSD. Travel and accomodation details can be found on the OpenCON website.
