O’Reilly’s amazing OSCON is coming to Austin, Texas from May 8-11th, 2017.  OSCON celebrates open source, the community, and the driving forces for open source software on the web.  We’ve all used open source software and many of us have contributed to those open source projects.  OSCON gives you a chance to meet and listen to like-minded people in the community.


O’Reilly is giving a free pass to one of my awesome readers!  All you have to do is leave a comment below mentioning the first open source project you contributed to.  My first open source contribution was to MooTools and I look forward to hearing what your first contribution was!
