We need your help

Over the years, we’ve gotten the greatest show of love for Open Source Bridge! We’re so grateful to work on such an amazingly inclusive conference that celebrates all aspects of open source technology.

In addition to our fantastic Keynotes, new in 2017 is a dedicated Activism Track for the week’s talks and a Community Organizer track addition to our Friday Unconference day. We’re excited to showcase inclusive tech communities — especially in this time of political, cultural, and economic crossroads — that are driving the future of open source projects.

In order to cover the costs of producing a community conference, we rely largely on sponsorships. We haven’t been as fortunate this year in monetary recruiting and would love extra help in spreading the word about Open Source Bridge to your company or tech managers.
