Third time’s a charm: Open Source Bridge 3, June 21-24, 2011. This time… it’s personal.

When it comes to open source, Portland is the place to be next summer. Not only will we be hosting OSCON 2011, we’ll also see the third installment of everyone’s favorite completely volunteer run open source conference Open Source Bridge.

When you ask? Open Source Bridge 3 will be held June 21-24, 2011. Three days of open source developer goodness and—if things hold true to previous eventss—around 72 consecutive hours of hacking.

What’s that? You’ve never heard of Open Source Bridge? Well, let’s bring you up to speed, gentle reader.

As developers, we find ourselves in many roles; we are users, creators, and leaders. The Open Source Bridge team believes that our role as open source citizens informs our work whether we are conscious of it or not. Open Source Bridge is intended as a call to action to become better citizens, by sharing our knowledge with each other.

… with five tracks connecting people across projects, languages, and backgrounds to explore how we do our work and share why we participate in open source. The conference structure is designed to provide developers with an opportunity to learn from people they might not connect with at other events.

I know, right? Sorry you have to wait until next June. But it will be here before you know it.
