SRCCON 2019 is Near
We’re so excited to see the program for SRCCON 2019 come together, built from dozens and dozens of amazing community proposals. Soon we’ll publish the list of sessions we’ve been able to accept so far on the SRCCON site, and we’ll add to it over the next couple weeks as we confirm more of the schedule.
If you take a look at this year’s program and think “wow I’d love to be there,” then, guess what, there’s good news. Our attendee form is still available, and we’d love to hear about how you’d like to participate in SRCCON this year.
