The Open Bastion, a Holden Web subsidiary, produces open source events, training and conferences for an international audience.

The Open Bastion aims to help organizations that don't have the time or resources needed to organize quality events. We help produce both public, as well as private events. We'd love to help you produce your in-house technical event.

Steve Holden started organizing PyCon in 2002, and is the immediate past chairman of the Python Software Foundation. He has been an open source software advocate for over 25 years.

Our next event is ApacheCon NA 2013, running Feb 24 - Mar 2 in Portland, OR/. Reserve your place now!
