First Annual Outercurve Open Source Software Conference (OuterConf 2013) will be held May 8 - 9 at the Hilton Bellevue in Bellevue, WA.

The Outercurve Foundation supports a growing number of open source software projects and the developers that create them.  Many of our projects have large and growing user communities and  it's time we got together to share the best of what we've learned, and to learn from the best.

OuterConf 2013
provides a forum for Windows open source developers to come together to share knowledge and experience.  This day and a half conference provides presentations and workshops to help Outercurve project developers learn:
  • How to develop vibrant user communities
  • How to turn users into contributors
  • Latest developments from key projects
  • How to support businesses that develop and rely on open source projects to deliver real-world solutions using open source software
  • How to grow a business around an open source project
Here's a look at agenda highlights to date:
  • Keynote:  Jono Bacon on "Developing Successful Engaged Communities"
  • Ross Gardler on "Understanding Community Governance Models"
  • Bertrand Le Roy on "Building the Orchard Community" 
  • Phil Haack will talk about "Developing a Community and an Ecosystem with NuGet"  
  • “Outercurve Fight Club”, a.k.a Managing Conflict in Community: Jeff Handley (NuGet), Rob Mensching (WiX), and Garrett Serack (CoApp) debate the relative merits of their approaches to Windows package management and installation.
