Good morning and welcome to day 1 of Open Source Bridge 2012!
Our evening begins at 6:30pm with Community Night in the Hacker Lounge (sponsored by Intel). A number of open source projects will be there to hack and share what they’re working on, including folks from Wikimedia‘s Visual Editor, Mozilla‘s Boot to Gecko project, and Intel‘s open source projects office.
There’s still time to schedule your BoF session for Wednesday or Thursday, so be sure to submit your details so we can let everyone know to attend.
We’re continuing the tradition we started last year of recognizing noteworthy Open Source Citizens who participate in the conference. If someone helped you file or fix a bug, gave an eye-opening talk, or just made open source a little bit more awesome for you, let us know! We’re going to announce this year’s winner at the party Thursday night.
If you’re posting something about the event online, don’t forget this year’s hashtag: #osb12
Speaking of volunteers, we still have several shifts left to fill. Even an hour of your time will help us keep this event running smoothly. See which volunteer shifts are open and how to sign up, or stop by the Volunteer Lounge on the main floor.
Thank you to this year’s sponsors for making Open Source Bridge possible:
Intel, Google, Engine Yard, and Rentrak; our Friday Unconference Sponsor, Wikimedia Foundation; Thursday night party sponsors Gilt Groupe and Simple; and other Citizens and Friends.
