Hey everyone, I forgot to mention this last week, but here is a special deal for the very awesome open source summer conference here in Portland: Open Source Bridge! Usually they have really good talks and people from all over the country attend.
DISCOUNT CODE: Members of your group can register at http://opensourcebridge.org/attend/ using the code "osbugluv" for only $200 (that's $100 off our regular registration rate). And if you are interested but can afford it, consider being a volunteer -- that will get you a free pass! OS Bridge is all volunteer run and could use your help! Read more below ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Igal Koshevoy <i...@pragmaticraft.com> Date: Sat, Mar 24, 2012 at 5:13 PM Subject: PSAS + Open Source Bridge To: Nathan Bergey <nathan.ber...@gmail.com> Nathan, We're holding the fourth Open Source Bridge conference this year, June 26–29 in Portland, Oregon and would love to have the members of PSAS involved. We'd be delighted if you could mention the conference at your user group meetings and encourage participation. We have two great bonuses to offer user groups: 1) DISCOUNT CODE: Members of your group can register at http://opensourcebridge.org/attend/ using the code "osbugluv" for only $200 (that's $100 off our regular registration rate). 2) FREE PASS TO GIVE AWAY: You can raffle off a free conference pass to a member of your group. When you have selected a winner, just send their name and email address to usergro...@opensourcebridge.org and we'll take care of the rest. These raffles work best when you let everyone know about the conference details, allow anyone in the group to sign up, and then draw the winner at random (preferably at a public meeting). In past years, we've had some local user groups hold their monthly meetings at our conference venue or organize other related events. This can be a great way to connect your user group with both local and out-of-town conference attendees. While passes are required to attend our daytime content, we open things up to the public in the evenings and are happy to provide meeting space and promotion. Email us at i...@opensourcebridge.org if you're interested in holding a meeting or have an idea for another event. I've included further details about the conference and the discount code below, for easy forwarding to your group's mailing list. Thank You! Igal Koshevoy Open Source Bridge http://opensourcebridge.org/ ### Open Source Bridge is a volunteer-run conference for people who work with open source technologies. It will take place June 26–29, 2012, at the Eliot Center in downtown Portland. The conference includes five tracks focused on connecting projects and experiences across different areas of open source.

You'll find relevant sessions and activities whether you write web apps, tinker with operating system internals, create hardware, run a business, write documentation, or contribute to open source in other ways.
