There’s nothing quite like spending some quality time with like-minded tech geeks and swapping knowledge. Next week, we’re sending a bunch of our in-house experts to two big industry conferences.

OSCON (July 16-20, Portland, OR) is the annual gathering place for the entire open source community. It’s the best way we know to stay ahead of the curve and see the newest open source tools and software before the public does. It’s also a great place to watch our very own Nate Jones and David Castro lead a session on Wrangling Logs with Logstash and ElasticSearch, and get a free (mt) goodie bag!

Haven’t registered yet? Use our discount code OS12SD25 to save 25%. And if you can’t make it to Nate and David’s session, don’t worry—that coveted (mt) swag can still be yours. Just find one of our engineers in an (mt) T-shirt and give them the secret password: your favorite open source project on GitHub.

Meanwhile, back East, our product team is taking HostingCon (July 18-20, Boston, MA) by storm. Our new President, Russ Reeder, will be on the Sales and Marketing for Software Start-Ups panel while the rest of the crew is on the floor in their snazzy (mt) T-shirts. If you’ve got something to pitch, find us and say hi–we’re always looking for outstanding new partners and team members.
