Open Source Citizenship

What are the rights and responsibilities of an open source citizen? We’re exploring what open source means to us, what it offers, where we struggle, and why we do this day in and day out, even when we’re not paid for it.

Innovative Track Structure

Our session tracks are technology agnostic, based around shared community experiences and focus on the similarities between projects, not the differences. View the tracks.

Hacker Lounge

The geekery doesn’t end when the sessions do. We’re also running a hacker lounge for code sprints, bug bashes, bouncing ideas, starting new projects or just mingling and taking in the vibe.

100% Volunteer-Run

Your software is peer-produced. Why not your conference? Open Source Bridge is pioneered and planned by a team of open source developers and technologists. What’s more, we’ve built an open source application to manage talk proposals.

Announcing the 2015 Open Source Bridge schedule!

result

We’re super excited to announce the session lineup and schedule for this year’s Open Source Bridge conference! These presentations will be given as part of our 4-day event June 23th through the 29th in Portland, Oregon. If you’ve been holding off on registering, now is a great time to do so!

Our selection process was a tough one, with over 240 excellent submissions to evaluate, but we were helped immensely by comments left by the community — thank you! One thing that we still have left to do is to assign rooms for all of these sessions, and we could use a little help. Please indicate talks you’re interested in attending by marking them as a favorite (click the star icon to the right of the session name). This will (hopefully) let us make more informed decisions about which talks need larger spaces.

Check out the schedule, session lineup, and speaker list today!
