    Open Source Bridge volunteer sprint

    Market Street Pub

    The next Open Source Bridge volunteer sprint will be this Saturday, April 10th at the Market Street Pub. We’ll be there from 11am till 5pm, but you can come to as much of it as you’d like. Add this event to your calendar.

    Some things we need your help with:

    • Audio: We need to process last year’s audio from our sessions and be ready to quickly process this upcoming year’s audio. It would be great if you could download the 2009 event’s audio, familiarize yourself with it, think about how to clean it up so it can be posted, and bring it along with your computer to the sprint.

    • Wiki: We want to provide useful information to our attendees and offer structure to help them organize and contribute information through our wiki. There is a lot of useful content on our 2009 wiki that can be used as inspiration for content to add to the 2010 wiki.

    • OpenConferenceWare: We have a few branches containing valuable contributions to our open source conference software that we’d like to finish reviewing and testing so we can incorporate them, including security improvements, performance fixes and software upgrades.

    • Complimentary ticket issuer: We’d like to make it easier for our volunteer staff to be able to issue complimentary tickets to speakers, raffle winners, and volunteers. We have developed a plan (PDF) for doing this, and need to start development.

    • Hacker lounge planning: We have a 24-hour on-site “hacker lounge” this year for attendees to collaborate and hang out at. We need to discuss how to organize events in this room to provide just enough structure to help attendees without stifling their creativity.

    • Logistics, venue and activity planning: We’re using the beautiful Portland Art Museum Mark Building as our venue this year. Discuss how to make the best use of this space and incorporate fun activities ranging from mobile donut trucks to on-site massages with our logistics crew.

    • Or whatever you think would be helpful.

    Thanks and see you at the sprint!

    pdxruby: Ruby fixtures alternatives exploration and dinner

    Join a few Ruby programmers for dinner to explore alternatives to fixtures for use in tests.

    We'd like to co-present our findings at the next pdxruby meeting.

    Libraries we'd like to explore include factory_girl, machinist, and others: http://www.ruby-toolbox.com/categories/rails_fixture_replacement.html

    We can use existing open source Ruby software to experiment with, by making a branch, trying out the library, and requesting a merge if we like the changes. Apps we can contribute to include http://calagator.org , http://openconferenceware.org and http://pdxruby.org.
