Join us June 14th to 17th to share, learn, discuss, innovate and celebrate all things Open edX!
The Open edX Conference will host engineers, site operators, startup founders, CEOs, CTOs all coming together to discuss how to use the Open edX platform to deliver the best online educational experiences in the world.
Topics will cover case studies in interesting and novel uses of the platform, technical deep dives about customization and deployment, course development best practices, and collecting and sharing feedback on the future of the platform and online education in general.
The CFP and early registration both close March 1st! We'd love to get involvement from the local edtech community in the Bay Area, so if you have ideas for a talk, workshop, discussion or lightning talk, please submit a proposal! Feel free to reach out to the Open Source team at edX (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you might have about proposals or the conference.

Stanford has been a supporter of the Open edX initiative since day zero. The Stanford team was instrumental in the open-source release of the Open edX platform, and continues to contribute their code, effort, and enthusiasm to the project.
Home to thousands of success stories in technological innovation, the Bay Area embodies the spirit that drives edX and the Open edX community to achieve great new things. Stanford University’s campus is in Stanford, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, almost equidistant between two major airports: just over 25 miles south of San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and just under 25 miles north of Mineta San José International Airport (SJC).
Stanford is easily accessible by Caltrain, part of the Bay Area public transportation network, using a connector service from either airport (SFO to BART to Caltrain, or SJC to VTA Flyer to Caltrain).
We are in the process of reserving a block of rooms at a local hotel and we'll send out information about that shortly. In the mean time, you can get an idea of lodging options on Stanford's website.
Why make the move from October to June? This time of year allows for more space and flexibility on campus. We also hope that moving to the summer means more of our academic community will be able to attend.
