Tidelift is headed to Seattle to sponsor the Open Source Summit, taking place Sept. 27 through Sept. 30. This is the first in-person event we’ve attended since February 2020; we’re super excited to be back on the expo floor—fully vaccinated and wearing our Tidelift masks, of course!
This event is especially cool because a) it’s hybrid, so people can attend in person or virtually; and b) the tracks are tailored and super niche. We are co-hosting one track: the first ever OSPOCon! We work closely with many open source program offices and think everyone could learn a lot from them on a variety of subjects, including contributing back to upstream maintainers and communities—a topic touched on in this Upstream webinar with Kevin Fleming of the Bloomberg OSPO.
Tidelift co-founder Luis Villa is speaking at 10:30 a.m. PT on Wednesday, Sept. 29, about making open source more secure by moving upstream. You can check out more information here.
If you’re attending, virtually or in-person, look for our orange booth. We’re eager to share all we’ve been working on to streamline the development processes and improve software supply chain health and security. Our goal is to help your organization move fast and stay safe when developing applications with open source, and we work closely with upstream maintainers to make that a reality.
So if you’re in Seattle, stop by booth S3 for a socially distanced demo; if you’re attending virtually, click on our to our page or chat with us via the Open Source Summit Slack channel. We’ll see you there!
