Summer of Coders at OSCON

So we had a few technical difficulties with the video from our OSCON BoF, but our friends at SilverStripe CMS were nice enough to send us a write up of the evening's festivities. About twenty mentors, students and well-wishers convened at the BoF and headed out for pizza, and a merry time was had by all. In addition to the folks you can see in the write up photos, we were joined by Brenda Wallace and Penny Leach of Moodle mentor fame - yes, we had quite the New Zealander contingent - as well as Josh Berkus, organization administrator from Postgresql.

Special thanks to Greg Lund-Chaix of Oregon State University's Open Source Labs for leaving BeerForge 2.0 early to hang out with all of us and make sure we got to our final destination smoothly.

To all those of you who joined us, our sincerest thanks for coming and sharing your Summer of Code joys with us. For those of you who were unable to join us, we raised a glass for you. Needless to say, we're planning the same shindig for OSCON next year, so perhaps we'll see you then!

Thanks for all the work you did in putting together the meetup!

I enjoyed meeting everyone who was there.

May the next meet-up be even better. :)

Have a great rest of the summer,
