Give your talk at Open Source Bridge!
The power of open source software is in the commitment, ambition, and vision of real people working individually and collaboratively to create tools that shape how the future is built — with no strings attached. To cover a variety of ways that power is demonstrated, we aim to provide an innovative track structure at OSB. The 2017 Open Source Bridge tracks are:
- Activism | Demonstrate how you’re making change
- Culture | What makes open technology and culture communities effective?
- Hacks | It doesn’t have to be elegant, it just has to work 😉
- Practice | How do you get a project to work
- Theory | Explain the components of a project and how they interact
While you’re welcome to submit a proposal to speak on anything open source, here are a few topics that we thought would be compelling in 2017.
- Open source tools for game development
- Security: tools that make it easier for non-technical audiences to manage their own security / privacy
- Git for open source, version control, and other tools for working together
- Fun hardware hacks
- Information Technology Operations (Devops)
- The social and physical dangers of the Internet of Things (IoT)
- An introduction to Threat Modeling
See what others have proposed already, for inspiration.
Submit a proposal to be considered to speak at Open Source Bridge this year!
P.S. There’s plenty of other ways to get involved. OSB is 100% volunteer-run, so your help would be 100% appreciated, and 8 hours of volunteering gets you a free ticket to the conference. Let’s meet up at Open Source Bridge 2017!
