Coder? Apply for free tickets for you and a friend

We’re giving away 1,000 Collision tickets to developers and open source contributors as a small thank you to the open source community.

This is your chance to hear from world-leading CTOs, engineers and pioneers such as Brian Behlendorf, the creator of the Apache server, Chris Wysopal, co-founder and CTO of Veracode, Caroline Sinders, the mind behind Wikimedia's anti-harassment tool, and many more.


What's happening?

We are giving away 1,000 tickets to Collision for open source contributors and their friends. Your ticket will allow you entry to all Collision talks and content, a range of networking events and workshops, our legendary pub crawls and Night Summit events where you can meet the creators you follow and connect with fellow programmers.

Collision is taking place during the same week as the world-famous New Orleans Jazz Fest™.

How to apply

Rather than relying on chance, we thought it would be fun to weight the chances of winning by open source contributions on GitHub in order to favor frequent contributors to high-impact projects.

This competition will run for a limited time after which all applicants’ contributions on GitHub will be reviewed. Frequent contributors to high-impact projects will have a higher chance of winning.


Terms and conditions: The prize is two free Collision tickets per winner. The tickets are free apart from a 1% service charge per ticket. We require your email address so that we can notify you if you’ve been successful. Our regular terms and conditions apply.
