> connect people across projects, languages and experience and would l
> ove to have members of the Portland Java community involved as speak
> ers and participants. Details about the conference are included below.
> Bridge isn’t a typical conference. It’s entirely volunteer-run,
> by developers, for developers. Session tracks are technology agnosti
> c, based instead around shared community experiences and focused on
> similarities between projects, not differences. Plus, we’ll be runni
> ng a 24-hour hacker lounge on site for code sprints, bug bashes, bou
> ncing ideas, starting new projects and generally socializing around

> DETAILS TO SHARE WITH YOUR GROUP’S MEMBERS
> Open Source Bridge
> Open Source Bridge is a conference for developers working with open
> source technologies. It will take place June 1–4, 2010, in Portland,
> Oregon, with five tracks connecting people across projects, languag
> es and experience to explore how we do our work and why we participa
> te in open source. The conference structure is designed to provide d
> evelopers with an opportunity to learn from people they might not co
> nnect with at other events. Attendees will learn and interact at thr
> ee days of traditional conference presentations, a day of free-form
> unconference sessions, and our 24-hour Hacker Lounge.
> This year we are thrilled to have an excellent downtown location at
> the Portland Art Museum ( http://pam.org/ ), an extra day packed
> full of open source goodness, and an on-site 24-hour Hacker Lounge!
> As a user group member, you can use the coupon code "osbugluv" to
> register for only $200 when you select either an Early Bird
> Registration (through April 1st), or a Regular Registration (after
> April 1st). Learn more and register today at http://opensourcebridge.org/attend/
> 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. All proceeds from conference registration and sponsorship go
> directly to the costs of the conference.
> 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 clou
> d, tinker with operating system internals, create hardware, run a st
> artup, or blog about technology.
> We're still seeking proposals — and we've just extended the deadline
> through March 25th — so submit yours before time runs out at http://opensourcebridge.org/proposal
> Visit http://opensourcebridge.org/ to learn more about the
> conference, see our session proposals, and register to attend.
