Open Source Citizenship

What are the rights and responsibilities of an open source citizen? We’re exploring what open source means to us, what it offers, where we struggle, and why we do this day in and day out, even when we’re not paid for it.

Innovative Track Structure

Our session tracks are technology agnostic, based around shared community experiences and focus on the similarities between projects, not the differences. View the tracks.

Hacker Lounge

The geekery doesn’t end when the sessions do. We’re also running a hacker lounge for code sprints, bug bashes, bouncing ideas, starting new projects or just mingling and taking in the vibe.

100% Volunteer-Run

Your software is peer-produced. Why not your conference? Open Source Bridge is pioneered and planned by a team of open source developers and technologists. What’s more, we’ve built an open source application to manage talk proposals.

Get your OSBridge ticket today! (final year, limited availability)

A few weeks ago we announced ticket sales for the 10th and final Open Source Bridge happening on Friday, June 29, 2018 in Portland, Oregon. Tickets are still available but are limited, so if you’d like to attend, we encourage you to get your tickets now. In addition to a couple of in-person options, there’s a donate-what-you-like “Gratitude” option for those of you who can’t attend but would like participate in some way.

We could also use a few more sponsors! To sponsor all you need to do is purchase a $250 Sponsorship ticket. Sponsorship is available to companies and individuals alike and you’ll be recognized on the Open Source Bridge website, in the Hacker Lounge, and by the co-chairs during opening and closing events.

All proceeds from this year’s event will go towards covering expenses and any leftovers will go into the Stumptown Syndicate general fund. Even with our scaled-down event, we’ve committed to providing childcare and keynote live-captioning this year, which we should be able to do if we hit our sponsorship and ticket sales targets. You can help by purchasing your ticket today and/or asking your company to sponsor. Thank you!

But, wait, there’s more! Open Source Bridge is co-scheduled with two other awesome events:

A Django Girls PDX workshop, on Saturday, June 23rd. The deadline to apply is May 27th, so don’t delay!

Indie Web Summit on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 26-27. Register here.

See you next month!
