After 5 years of building proverbial bridges in the open source community, Reid Beels and Christie Koehler have stepped down as Open Source Bridge Chairs. Please welcome Thursday Bram and Shawna Scott, our co-chairs for 2016!
Shawna is a software engineer in Portland, Oregon. She works at 38 Zeros in Ruby on Rails and to increase empathy through software. Shawna strives toward social justice and creating spaces and communities that are affirming and accessible to all. To that end, she is a member of the Calagator core team, co-organizer for Women Who Hack, and a sometimes-responsible member of the PDX Ruby Brigade anarchist ghost pirate ship.
