The 15th anniversary of OSCON showed its interest in diversity, and continuing to broaden the market for open source technology.

Do you know who my current hero is? Jono Bacon. Even for you coders/developers, he's a hand you should shake. He gets community leaders together to think about their community and ways to help it to be better. He helps us to help you, and it's more important than I had realized.
Hey, everyone, good news! I know a lot of you (and us) were incredibly frustrated by not being able to access JIRA. There was a security issue, so JIRA was locked down until it was resolved.
