Open Source Bridge could use your help

Via Open Source Bridge “One of the unique things about Open Source Bridge is that it is entirely volunteer run. That’s right. 100% volunteers. All proceeds—sponsorships, registration fees, and in-kind donations—go to ensuring that Portland, Oregon, has a one-of-a-kind conference for open source citizens this summer—and hopefully for many years to come. Why do we do it? Because we love the idea of having an open source conference by developers for developers where they can focus on the topics that are important to them. But more importantly, it just seems like the right thing to do. But we can’t do it alone. So if you like the idea of Open Source Bridge as much as we do, we’d love to have your help.”

If you can, please bring a little cash donation to cover the cost of snacks and drinks n stuff. We pretty much have space for the whole day, but I figure we can probably be heading out around 4ish. Then we can celebrate our first Code Sprint, and all the great progress we’ll have made!”
