You may be passionate about open source software or FLOSS (Free/Libre
and Open Source Software) or you may simply be focused on getting your
work done. Either way, according to Cory Doctorow, novelist, activist,
journalist, and blogger, when you use open source software the work you
do today is giving shape to the open source software of the future.
That's quite a responsibility—and a privilege. Cory explains what he
means, and more important, what this means for the world at large. We
invite you to listen to his thought-provoking keynote from the O'Reilly
Open Source Convention last year, /How you got here/. You'll learn about
the practical side of using open source as well as enduring benefits
that you may not have imagined. And Cory's a brilliant speaker.

P.S. In addition to fueling today's software and business systems, open
source software is rich with exciting potential. Learn useful skills,
languages, and best practices at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention
aka OSCON, happening May 8–11, 2017 in Austin, TX.
