The Open Source Bridge team is hard at work reviewing the many amazing proposals we received this year. While that process continues, we want to gather input from all the members of our community as well.
Is there a session proposal you’re excited to attend? Or a speaker you want to collaborate with in the Hacker Lounge (more details about the Hacker Lounge here)? Be sure to take a minute to leave comments on the proposals you’d like to see at this year’s Open Source Bridge conference, and tell your coworkers, friends, and fellow user group members to comment too.
There are two ways to tell our selection committee what proposals you’re interested in: 1) by marking the ones you like as favorites (using the little stars), and 2) by leaving comments on them (using the form at the end of each proposal).
The list of favorites is publicly visible on your user profile page, so you can share the list of talks you’re excited about with others. The comments are private and only visible to the selection team; this is the place to tell us why the presentation’s topic is important, how well qualified the speaker is, and so on.
Commenting on proposals and marking your favorites is very valuable feedback for us, and allows you to further help set the direction of Open Source Bridge.
