About SRCCON: Space to Connect

SRCCON (a contraction of “Source con”) is a highly participatory and extraordinarily inclusive conference where participants come first so they can focus on collaborating on the work at hand. About 1/3 of attendees are also session facilitators who lead conversations and collaborative workshops focused on the practical challenges that news technology and data teams encounter every day.

We welcome about 300 attendees, and everyone at SRCCON actively participates, whether they’re facilitating a session, contributing to a conversation over lunch, or meeting new colleagues and supporting their work. The entire structure of the event is set up to allow participants to focus on getting to know each other and learning from the wisdom in the room, which means there are long breaks, group meals, and social events that create space for the life side of our work.

How to Participate

We’ll open a call for participation form in April to pitch a session, apply for a ticket, or tell us you’d like to participate in some other way. The session pitches create the entire SRCCON schedule, and the applications allow us to allocate tickets in an intentional way that equitably distributes attendance and ensures that there are a mix of perspectives and skills at the event. Our call for participation form helps us understand who would like to take part in SRCCON and what you want to get out of it.
