This event has ended. Please check back for videos(which will also be captioned eventually), as well as leave feedback if there's something that was missing this year. We'd love suggestions for next year, and possible proposals for any kind of involvement in next year's conference. Thank you for making this year the most attended so far, and we'd love to see you again.

Welcome to the Flourish 2012 Open Source Conference website! This is Flourish Conference's sixth annual student-led conference hosted at the The University of Illinois at Chicago. We are proud to help promote the use of open source and provide a gathering place for open source enthusiasts in the Chicagoland area.

Throughout the weekend, we will bring speakers from around the country to talk about their contributions to the open source community. Topics ranging from the development of free and open source software to the issues with software patents and copyright will be discussed. Then after all the speeches are over, join us in our workshop to gain some hands-on experience.

Flourish Conference is FREE to attend and there will be free T-Shirts to those who register in advance. We really appreciate everyone for coming to Flourish Conference for the past several years and we hope to bring another great and educating year!

In the mean time, follow @flourishconf for updates and check our website regularly!
