The 2015 OpenSim Community Conference starts this Saturday, leaving just three days to register.
Registration is free here, but you can also choose to make a tax-deductible donation to support OpenSim development and get some extra benefits. For example, the “Exclusive Access” ticket, at $35, includes an invitation to a VIP Q&A session with this year’s keynote speakers.
There will be technical presentations about OpenSim, presentations focused on educational projects, and I will be giving a talk on the current state of the metaverse. On Sunday, there will be a day full of community events, including a hypergrid orientation and safari.
This year’s conference is organized by OpenSim core developers and the non-profit AvaCon, Inc. It will be held on a dedicated grid, accessible both by direct login and via hypergrid teleport at cc.opensimulator.org:8002.
According to OpenSim developer Michael Emory Cerquoni — also known as Nebadon Izumi in world — 800 updates were made to the core OpenSim code ahead of this year’s conference.
