January, 2020: Post updated to include videos.

AWS is happy once again to be a Diamond sponsor at OSCON, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there! We’ve got a busy schedule this year, including an Open@Amazon day (Tuesday) open to all OSCON 2019 pass holders.


MONDAY, July 15

10:00am–10:25am: Building Java in the Open (video), Arun Gupta and Yishai Galatzer [D135/136]

TUESDAY, July 16

9:00am-5:00pm: Open@Amazon Day

Join us to understand how to engage, participate, contribute and grow with AWSOpen. We will discuss what it takes to keep open source open, and where we see open source heading over the next 20 years. We’ll also cover the story of how AWS open sourced the SAM toolset, tour the AWS IDE Toolkits and how you can help to make the tooling better for everyone, and more. We’ll have team members around to help answer questions, and close the day out with a happy hour.
