WSO2Con 2011 starts next week in Colombo, Sri Lanka – and no matter where you are in the world, it’s not too late to participate!
We’re very excited at the scope of this year’s conference – we have speakers and guest speakers from Sri Lanka of course, but also from across the world. When we opened the call for papers, we were astonished at the results. Users from Russia, Chile, Mexico, Canada, the Ukraine, New Zealand, even Cuba responded with interesting case studies and session topics.
WSO2Con 2011 features three full days of sessions – although I’m having trouble choosing which of the two tracks to attend! And bookending the conference two full days of tutorials are available. Keynotes by Dr. Mohan of IBM, Gregor Hohpe of Google, and Sastry Malladi of eBay, all folks with compelling experience that we love to introduce to the wider WSO2 community.
So, with such an impressive program, isn’t Colombo a bit of an odd choice for a venue? Not really. WSO2 users – as well as employees! – come from around the world. There isn’t a single place that would be convenient for all of them. Where ever we bring the conference, many attendees need to travel. And with Sri Lanka being one of the world’s top travel destinations (#1 in New York Times for 2010), isn’t it an excellent choice? And believe me, our event team really knows how to deliver a memorable event that goes beyond the conference rooms!
Still on the fence? Let us know how we can help tip the scale and get you to Sri Lanka to join us for this exciting global event. But act quickly – folks around the world are already packing.
