About the event
For several years, we've organized OctConf in cities around the world, bringing together our community of users and developers in a series of lightning talks, workshops, networking, and collaborative coding activities.
The Best Minds Working Together
Now we want to launch a new event this year in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon -- in a slightly different form. We want a highly collaborative and productive summit focused on bringing together Octave's top developers to code, learn from one another, discuss new ways of recruiting and mentoring members, and also work through important projects on our list as a group.
Why should you sponsor?
Octave is a growing open source project and has a community of passionate, dedicated developers and testers all over the world. You can play an important role in the continued growth of Octave, a platform used by programmers, educators, and students globally. Countless users choose Octave over MATLAB, a similar program designed for solving engineering and scientific problems with built-in graphics to visualize data, because of its growing open-source community supporting its future development and its innovative features that go beyond MATLAB.
Octave is one of several open-source communities that participate annually in Google's prestigious internship program -- "The Summer of Code," which currently supports 104 countries and 12,000+ students, designed to help mentor and support

It's a reality, open source is the future. I'm an avid supporter of the Octave/GNU community, and for helping the open source community continue to soar. I'm the wife of Mike Miller, one of the top developers for Octave who spends his free time fixing bugs, troubleshooting issues for his Octave peers, and mentoring students and young developers who want to get involved.

We are local to Portland, and are involved in various groups that support open source in the Pacific Northwest. I'm also a freelance writer, copywriter, blogger, and published author who is a tech geek at heart. While I'm not a developer myself, I do what I can to help spread awareness and support for open source.
