Help us get ready for the 2015 conference by attending a Hackathon for Open Source Bridge. We'll be working on outreach, coding, documentation, and more: https://github.com/osbridge/planning/issues?q=is%3Aopen.

This is the first of several hackathons. If this one doesn't work for you, keep your eyes peeled for the next one, or fill out the survey here http://opensourcebridge.org/get-involved/ to be alerted about future volunteer opportunities.

Tasks you can help with:

  • outreach
    • look at the sponsorship prospectus (http://opensourcebridge.org/sponsors/sponsorship/ ), think of communities, organizations, companies you have connections to, and send them personal emails asking them to sponsor OSB
    • think of awesome diverse speakers you'd love to see talks from at OSB 2015, email them requesting a talk proposal & telling them to watch for the CfP in January
  • coding
    • wiki maintenance
    • OpenConferenceWare improvements (see github.com/osbridge/openconferenceware/issues), such as adding a field for YouTube links
    • talk to Reid about helping with server deployment stuff (using Chef)
  • documentation
    • help transfer notes and tasks from Etherpad and people's minds to GitHub
    • update notes on the Open Source Bridge 2014 wiki
