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.
