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.

OSBridge year 10: We’ve confirmed availability of child care!

Good news: We’ve hit one of our budget milestones and so we’ve confirmed the availability of free child care from 9am-6pm during the event. Pre-registration is required. If this is something you would like to take advantage of, we need to know by end of day on Friday, June 15th. How do you let us know? By buying a ticket and completing the attendee question about childcare. If you’ve have already purchased a ticket, please follow the View Order link in the confirmation email from Tito to change your ticket details and update your answers to “Additional info.”

Even if you’re not planning to take advantage of child care, we encourage you to get your tickets now, whether or not you want to attend the whole day or just the party. In addition to a couple of in-person options, there’s a donate-what-you-like “Gratitude” option for those of you who can’t attend but would like participate in some way.

We could also use a few more sponsors! To sponsor all you need to do is purchase a $250 Sponsorship ticket. Sponsorship is available to companies and individuals alike and you’ll be recognized on the Open Source Bridge website, in the Hacker Lounge, and by the co-chairs during opening and closing events.

See you in a couple of weeks!
