FOSSCON 2017

Who Are We?

FOSSCON is a Free and Open Source software conference held annually in Philadelphia PA.

FOSSCON brings together users of FOSS from a wide variety of fields. Our attendees include students, systems and network administrators, developers, executives, and more. Attendees come from around the world to participate in talks, learn of new technologies, and visit sponsors and FOSS projects represented in our exhibit area.

Our History In Numbers

Staying immersed in the local Philadelphia area has given us the opportunity to build relationships with the community at large, which in turn creates loyal supporters and attendees each and every year. Our continued growth from a meager start at 50 attendees to our current average of several hundred, coupled with our desire to enrich and educate the community is the biggest reason our event continues to progress in all areas.

Our Team

FOSSCON is run by a solid team of volunteers who dedicate year round help and care in producing this ongoing event. Every person gives their time and resources to maintain, plan, build, and reach out so that we can continue to offer a better event each year. There are 2 Directors, 7 Staff Members, and a handful of volunteers. We would not exist if it were not for these dedicated individuals and their commitment to our mission. If you have interest in joining our team, please email one of our directors (Jonathan Simpson - jsimpson@fosscon.us jsimpson@fosscon.us or Christina Simmons - csimmons@fosscon.us csimmons@fosscon.us ).
