    Open Source Bridge 2017
    through
    Eliot Center (First Unitarian Church)

    Open Source Bridge is an open source developer and maker conference, focused on bringing people from a range of technology backgrounds together to share our knowledge and explore what it means to be an open source citizen.

    For our 9th year, we’re changing things up a little, given the political, cultural, and economic crossroads we find ourselves at right now. We’ve added a new track to explore how activists are using technology, how open source communities are supporting activists, and how other open source and activist communities intersect. To encourage new connections, we’re also holding a project night in the Hacker Lounge to partner with community groups and individual projects looking for new contributors and adding a Community Organizer track to our Friday Unconference day.

    2017 keynotes

    • Nicole Sanchez (VP of Social Impact @ GitHub)

    LAS GNOME is the first U.S. based conference for GNOME, the free software desktop. This conference focuses on the Linux application story bringing in people from all across the Linux eco-system to build a powerful platform to design applications for the Web and Linux platform on all devices.

    This conference for you if you want to learn how to write ubiquitous apps that will work on any Linux distribution, contribute to a new application distribution model that puts control back on the developer instead of the OSV, and finally improve the general tooling on the Linux platform with the kind of tools that you would find on OSX and Windows.

    Registration is free, although we ask for a reasonable donation. We have some amazing and well known speakers including Matthew Garrett , Alexander Larsson, creator of Flatpak, and Matt Dalio, CEO of Endless.

    Bring your Linux applications and we will help you flatpak them so they run anywhere!

    Help us expand the market for Linux applications, and build the kind of eco-system that will support entrepreneurs build new products based on Linux platform.

    In addition, many core members of the GNOME project will be there, including the maintainer of GTK+, the creator of Flatpak, and the co-creator of the GNOME Project!

  • Data & Applications Across the Void :: Distributing Systems

    Today distributing applications is relatively easy, until you get to the data side of things. This is where the complexity in most applications comes into focus, where does the data go? How do I replicate or synchronize the data? How do or where do I cache data? What’s the geographic issues with data in one place and applications in another? How does the gravity of the data affect my application?

    This talk will hone in on key details around implementing a true distributed system across geographically dispersed areas and how to provide the end user a solid synchronized experience while using the application. Examples will be provided with hybrid computing solutions and distributed software solutions including distributed databases, PaaS Deployment packaging and other key technologies.

    BarCamp 6: Indie Video Game Showcase and Crowd Funding Jam

    Join us on March 30th to learn how to develop your own crowd funding project and explore the creativity of Portland's indie game developers.

    In February, video game company Double Fine Adventure asked fans to support their new game by contributing $400,000. After only twelve hours, pledges exceeded $1 million. After less than 30 days, their game became the most funded project in Kickstarter history with over 87 thousand backers contributing more than $3.3 million. In total, they had reached 834% of their funding goal (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/66710809/double-fine-adventure).

    Double Fine Adventure's success has generated massive excitement among indie developers & gamers everywhere. Instead of needing loans or credit, creators are finding new opportunities through our vibrant global community. At BarCamp Portland 6, we will showcase indie video games and explore crowd funding models. The goal of our event is to help local developers and entrepreneurs prototype their projects and discover best practices for crowd funding.

    For more information on this session, visit our blog http://kawaiidreams.wordpress.com/2012/03/17/barcamp-portland-6-indie-video-game-showcase-and-crowd-funding-jam/

    This year’s keynote will be Scott Hanselman (http://computerzen.com), who will speak on: “Lego, Open Source and Sucking Less: An Overview of the MS Web Stack of Love”. A popular speaker who, by his own admission, doesn’t “sleep too much”, Scott is currently a Microsoft principal program manager, has been Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, and a principal consultant at STEP Technology.

    Come listen to a wide range of topics and technologies inluding talks on: Android Apps, Windows Phone 7 programming, HTML5, Azure, the Cloud, Asynchronous Programming, Open Source frameworks, and much more.

    Through the generous support of its sponsors and donors, Portland Code Camp is free (registration is easy and painless at http://portlandcodecamp.org/) and includes snacks, lunch and what is best – the ability to hobnob with your fellow programmers while learning about many of the hottest programming, web and mobile technologies.

    If you have experience and a passion for some aspect of programming technology or process that you feel would be of interest to the community at large, please submit an abstract before May 25 (http://portlandcodecamp.org). We are encouraging sessions that range from sessions that help folks that are new to a technology to those that demonstrate pushing the edges with various technologies. If you have never presented before, be of good cheer – Portland Code Camp welcomes first time presenters.
