If you’re undecided about the conference, here are some reasons why this year’s conference is going to be amazing:

 

  • Visit the beautiful Wellesley College campus and experience autumn  in New England. The post-conference hackathon will be at the welcoming offices of CIC Boston, which boasts a view overlooking downtown Boston which  you’ll be able to enjoy during kickoff and presentations.

  • Network with edtech experts from all over the world. Approximately half of conference speakers come from outside the United States.Conference participants represent every continent (except Antarctica–Antarctic educators, consider getting involved in the Open edX project!)

  • Discuss edtech across functionalities. In addition to educators, academics, and developers, Open edX Con participants include students, business specialists, medical professionals, government representatives, and researchers.

  • The speakers are inspiring and diverse. In addition to the diversity in  geography and and field of expertise of Open edX Con speakers, 20% are women, and an even greater percentage identify as members of groups typically underrepresented in tech and at technical conferences.

  • The talks are going to be great. The results from this year’s CFP were astounding. Every proposal will be a valuable contribution to the conference proceedings. This year, we consolidated the edX, and added sessions to incorporate more representation from community members in more could. This year’s presentations are nott to be missed.

  • The Open edX Community! In addition to learning more about the Open edX mission of and the amazing work the community does to further it, this conference is an opportunity to spend time with the people you work with and hear from as an active member of the community. If you’re new to the Open edX project, you won’t have another chance to get to know so many people passionate about the Open edX project for another year.
