Coming to OSCON?

We'll be hosting the second annual Summer of Code Community Gathering next week at OSCON 2007, so if you're attending the conference or find yourself in the Portland, Oregon, USA area, come and join us! We've already heard that some of the mentors and students from Adium and SilverStripe CMS will be attending, and the folks at SilverStripe have graciously offered to videotape the BoF. Following some group discussion and the filiming of our collective fifteen minutes of Summer of Code fame - coming soon to YouTube - we'll head out for the ultimate evening open source celebration: that's right, pizza. And free beer!

Access to all OSCON BoFs is free of charge; you just need to register by July 22nd. If you plan to come, post a comment to introduce yourself and we'll keep an eye out for you at the conference and the BoF.

If you'll be attending the entire conference, Google's Open Source Team will be giving many talks and hosting a few other activities. You can check out a full list of all things Googley at OSCON on the Google Code Blog.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Hi there!

I'll be at the first day of OSCON, but I don't know if I can make it on Thursday...

@ omer: Cool! I'll be around and wearing a Google tee, so keep an eye out for me.

I think that the BoF is during the Sourceforge Community Choice Awards, which I'm going to in case XMMS2 wins. I'll hopefully be able to make the end at least.

@ alexbl: No worries. We'll leave maps to our pizza destination of choice in the BoF room so you can join us later.

If you're already familiar with Portland, we'll be here:

Oops, can't believe I forgot to comment earlier, but I'm coming as well! I'm in town visiting my parents, but I consider Portland to be my hometown anyway.

Great party! It was wonderful to meet some of the SoC'ers from outside the US.

Thanks to LH and all the Google folks for sponsoring the meetup.
