Friday Unconference Details

Welcome to day four of Open Source Bridge, the Unconference Day!

The weather forecast is for a high of 68F, with a chance (less than half!) of rain. The activity forecast is for a slate of topics mutually planned by you, OSBridge attendees.

Session planning starts at 9am. Doors open at 8am, with coffee and pastries. There will be doughnuts from Voodoo Doughnut. The Hacker Lounge will be open throughout the unconference day.

Community passes are still available if you know someone who would like to attend the unconference.

Lunch will not be catered today; instead there will be a field trip to nearby food carts, which offer high-quality and tasty offerings from a variety of cuisines. Meet in the Atrium at noon if you’d like to find others to walk with.

Niche Massage will be in the Hacker Lounge from 12-2pm. Sign up for your 10-minute appointment at Registration.

We’ll be having a wrap-up session and asking for your feedback from 3:30-4pm. One of the reasons OSBridge is better every year is the feedback we get in these sessions. Please join us!

You can also give your feedback in the anonymous attendee survey. Let us know what to change and what to keep for next year.

If you’re sad that after 4pm today, Open Source Bridge 2013 will be over, start planning for next year. We’ll be back here June 24-27 2014. You can purchase a Ridiculously Early Bird Registration now and through the end of this month.

Looking forward to 2015, we’re looking for local organizing teams that want to host an Open Source Bridge in their own city.

As always, our Code of Conduct and recording policy apply during the unconference.

  • Hacking bureaucracies: No large business has a compliment department, so they’ll just keep passing you up the chain. #osb13 https://twitter.com/kronda/status/347855473552277506

  • Humans are the most important part of any software (eco)system. #osb13 is a conference which recognizes that. That’s why I love it. https://twitter.com/mdzimm/status/347813306762919942
