It’s official. OSCON 2011 will be held in Portland, the unofficial hub of open source.

[HTML1]After being a sure thing for so many years, OSCON, the premier open source conference in the world, stepped away from Portland in 2009.

Now, now, now. Dry those little tears. They came back. OSCON 2010 was held right here in Portland.

But now, we always kind of have to wonder: will they or won’t they? Will they pick us again? Or will they choose another location?

Well, I’m happy to report that they will. OSCON 2011 is officially back in Portland, July 25-29, 2011, according to Gina Blaber, O’Reilly’s VP of Conferences.

First Linus becomes an US citizen and now this.

And with all of the municipal open data and CivicApps activity here around Portland, it could be a very very interesting summer for the Rose City in 2011.

Welcome back, OSCON. We’re glad you decided to stay.
