Calling all open source citizens: Open Source Bridge is nearly upon us

It’s that time of year again. Portland’s homegrown, volunteer-run open source conference—Open Source Bridge—is almost here. Now in it’s sixth year, the conference continues its by developer, for developers focus, bringing some amazing speakers to town and highlighting some of the incredible talent we have here in our own backyard.

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.

Open Source Bridge will take place June 24-27, 2014 in Portland, OR, 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.

The event runs June 24 through June 27 at the Eliot Center. Tickets are still available for the cost of $300 or simply by volunteering for eight hours. One-day passes are available for $99.
