Conference I (Almost) Attended
OSCON, the O’Reillly Open Source conference that once again took place here in Portland.
My company sponsors and speaks regularly at OSCON. This year we had individual contributors speak on a project they’ve open sourced. Open source contributions are a nascent thing for us, and having engineers speak about what they've contributed represents, to me, a significant incremental improvement in our community participation. I didn’t get to attend, but I did host a dinner for some of the out of town attendees at one of my favorite restaurants in Portland or anywhere.
