We have a great Hacker Lounge that attendees can use to hang out, chat, and hack on code into the wee hours. Because the Lounge is in the same venue as the rest of the conference, it'll be easy for attendees to go between it and other conference activities. The Lounge will be open almost all day long for your marathon coding sessions, but closed from 6-8am for cleaning. For more details, see the [http://opensourcebridge.org/blog/2011/03/hacker-lounge-returns-to-open-source-bridge/ Hacker Lounge returns to Open Source Bridge] blog post.

This year we have an on-site Hacker Lounge, sponsored by Intel, and it will be open nearly 24 hours a day starting Tuesday at 9am, but close 6-8am for cleaning. This is a big, well-equipped room where attendees can gather to chat, hack, and collaborate. There'll be plenty of wifi, power strips, beverages, and snacks in a comfortable and friendly space. This will be a popular gathering spot between sessions and in the evenings. To get the most out of the Hacker Lounge, we challenge you to be bold, introduce yourself to new people, offer to work on projects, team up on research and experimentation, etc. For more details, see the [http://opensourcebridge.org/blog/2011/03/hacker-lounge-returns-to-open-source-bridge/ Hacker Lounge returns to Open Source Bridge] blog post.
