Straight to it. Myself and Bastian Greshake have been invited to OpenCon this year. Sadly though, we were not awarded travel grants. Super sadly, we’re both poor too.
As such, we’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo to help us get to Washington DC. All the details are on the page, including a video with some out-takes.. We’re nerds, not crowdfunders.
I’ve written extensively about how amazing OpenCon is before, for PeerJ, and personally for 2014 and 2015. I’ve also led a satellite event in Berlin, and am planning on leading another satellite this year too that will be even bigger and better! You can see my application here too.
If you can support us by reading, sharing, or contributing, we would both be eternally thankful.
