Open Source truly powers the internet. From WordPress, to enterprise database and web server platforms, “open source has moved from disruption to default”. Beyond (mt)’s support and sponsorship of top-level open source projects (such as jQuery, The Changelog, BoCoup, and Open Stack), all of the core technologies powering our products depend on open source software. This makes OSCON a mandatory field trip for our engineering department.
You can catch (mt) team members running around, geeking out, and even speaking. Check out how we’re leveraging open source tools at Chason’s presentation, or glimpse (mt)’s open source vision with our vice president of marketing, Todd Greene, this Wednesday at 9:45am in the Portland Ballroom.
In addition to supporting the OS heavyweights, one of our favorite contributions to the open source community is providing some liquid courage and a casual networking space. If you’re more into the social aspect of OSCON (read: open bar and pizza), come mingle at the Media Temple OSCON Party. See you in Portland!
