Open Source Enthusiasts: this is a great conference. I have been to OSB and I can vouch for it. It's well attended and the talks are top notch. Plus, it'll bring you back into touch with the Portland community this year. Here's some info:

Open Source Bridge:

Open Source Bridge is a conference for those working with open source technologies. It will take place June 21–24, 2016, in Portland, Oregon, with five tracks connecting people across projects, languages and experience to explore how we do our work and 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. Attendees will learn and interact at three days of traditional conference presentations, a day of free-form unconference sessions, and our all-day Hacker Lounge.

We’re also seeking presentation proposals through April 15th. Read our Call for Proposals here:
As a user group member, you can use the coupon code “osbugluv” to register for only $215 when you select Regular Registration. Learn more and register today at

The conference is run entirely by volunteers who believe in the need for an open source event that focuses on the culture of being an open source citizen, regardless of where in the stack you choose to code.

Our event shares in-depth knowledge about using, creating, and contributing to open source as citizens of a greater community. You’ll find relevant information whether you write web apps for the cloud, tinker with operating system internals, create hardware, run a startup, or blog about technology.

The city of Portland is a great place to visit. It has a thriving tech community, a love of all things open source, and offers many attractions for visiting geeks, including Powell’s Technical Books, dozens of local brewpubs, and large greenspaces like Forest Park — all accessible by mass transit.

Visit to learn more about the conference, see our session proposals, and register to attend.
