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.

OSB Volunteer Appreciation Party!

Volunteer Appreciation Party!

Because you folks are awesome and we couldn’t do it without you.

Friday, October 17th, 6-10pm.

New Relic has been kind enough to host us at their offices on the 29th floor of the U.S. Bancorp Tower (Big Pink). The elevators will be unlocked at 6 for the 29th floor.

We’ll have delicious snacks, plenty of beverages, swag, and a fun raffle. (You know you love a good raffle!)
So come, hang out, get another chance to connect with other volunteers, and let us tell you (again) how much we appreciate you.

Didn’t volunteer this year, but are interested in volunteering next year?  You’re welcome, too! Come see what it’s all about!

No RSVP required.

See you on the tomorrow!

– Amanda and Chris, OSB Volunteer Coordinators
