Our keynote speakers this year will be:
- Danny O’Brien, journalist and activist with the Committee to Protect Journalists,
- Leigh Honeywell, software security consultant and co-founder/director of HackLab, and
- Portland Mayor Sam Adams.
Danny O’Brien will explore how open source can help those at the cutting edge of free expression, and will detail tools that writers and speakers in repressive regimes need. Leigh Honeywell will be discussing hacker spaces, and the culture of DIY spaces for making things around the world. Mayor Sam Adams will give an update on Portland’s open source and open data initiatives, and hopefully kick off a round of hacking on CivicApps.
We’ve honored to have these inspiring keynote presenters this year! We have accepted over 80 talks so far, and will be publishing our initial list of talks on Monday morning.
Registration is open, and we hope you can join us!
