If there’s one thing people think of when they think of summer in Portland, Oregon, it’s beer. But once they stop thinking about that, they usually start thinking about all of the awesome tech events that take place here over the summer. And then they probably go back to thinking about beer.
Be that as it may. If you’re into open source, there is no better place to be this summer than Portland, where Open Source Bridge and OSCON will be filling the Rose City with all sorts of open source goodness.
Open Source Bridge, now in it’s sophomore year, is the entirely volunteer run conference for open source citizens. It will be held June 1-4 at the Portland Art Museum.
Four days is a lot of time to fill. But Open Source Bridge has a whole heck of a lot of talks and activities to keep things moving, from Haskell to hardware, from SSL to Spaz, from MariaDB to MongoDB. The list just goes on and on.
So start getting your favorites put together by taking a gander at the complete Open Source Bridge schedule.
When it comes to open source, there’s no more celebrated open source conference than OSCON. And even though they decided to leave Portland last year, we’re willing to let bygones be bygones. Because they’re back. And they’ve got a great line up.
So, get ready. Because from Monday, July 19 through Friday, July 23, Portland is going to be chock full of open source goodness. And geeks. From Django to Java, from Puppet to Python, from Android to APIs. It’s all going to be there. And you’re not going to want to miss it.
So start picking through the sessions and choosing your path by walking through the complete OSCON 2010 schedule.
