CITCON (Continuous Integration and Testing Conference) is the Continuous Delivery conference that pre-dates the term "Continuous Delivery". CITCON brings together people from every corner of the software development industry to discuss Continuous Delivery and the practices (e.g. Continuous Integration and Testing) that go along with it.
This includes everything from Test Driven Development to Continuous Deployment, from code metrics to post-release monitoring. Attendees include developer-testers, tester-developers, devops and other people looking for cross-functional solutions to make software better!
What makes CITCON different is the unique Open Space format: attendees don't sit in rows listening to presentations. Instead, they openly discuss the topics that matter to them, with the experts, both local and visiting.
There is also no upfront schedule. The schedule is created by the attendees on the first day. As result topics are broader than CI/CD. Last year, for instance, there was a session on non-violent communications.
Attendance is limited to 150 delegates on a first-come, first served basis, so register quickly.

Registration is free. Free contributions are welcome.
You have to register on the site of CITCON to be able to participate.
Facilitators: Paul Julius and Jeffrey Fredrick (former members of the CruiseControl open source CI tool)
