Keynote speakers for our grand finale!

We are pleased to announce that long time Open Source Bridge community member Kronda Adair will keynote the concluding year of our conference. Kronda is the founder of Karvel Digital, a digital marketing consultancy. Today Kronda helps small businesses take control of their technology stack, through consulting and her popular Working Websites course. In her own words: “I’m a recovering WordPress developer turned digital marketer who loves to reinvent myself and my business. At age 34, I decided to become a programmer and spent the next five years getting a degree in Web Design and Interactive Media from the Art Institute of Portland.”

We’re looking forward to hearing Kronda’s perspective on her journey through the evolution of our conference and community, and what she’s learned about how to making a living with open source.

Additionally, Christie Koehler will open this year’s event with an engaging history of our conference, how it was and is now situated within the Portland tech and greater open source communities, and some ideas for we could build together next.

Space is limited but tickets are still available. In addition to a couple of in-person options, there’s a donate-what-you-like “Gratitude” option for those of you who can’t attend but would like participate in some way.

We could also use a few more sponsors! To sponsor all you need to do is purchase a $250 Sponsorship ticket. Sponsorship is available to companies and individuals alike and you’ll be recognized on the Open Source Bridge website, in the Hacker Lounge, and by the co-chairs during opening and closing events.

See you next week!
— Christie and Audrey
