Open Source Bridge

Open Source Bridge is a new conference for developers working with
open source technologies and for people interested in learning the open
source way. It’s not a typical technical conference.

Here’s what makes it different:

  • It’s entirely volunteer-run, by developers, for developers. This is the conference you’ve always wanted to attend.
  • Session tracks are technology agnostic, based instead around shared
    community experiences and focused on similarities between projects, not
    differences.
  • The geekery doesn’t end when the sessions do. There will also be a
    24-hour hacker lounge for code sprints, bug bashes, session deep dives,
    bouncing ideas, starting new projects or just mingling and taking in
    the vibe.
