Description

This week we welcome John Papa to the show to talk about the Open Source Fest at MIX, which is a soirée for open source project leaders to come together to show off their great open source projects, and win some cool
prizes!  The Fest will be held on the evening of Monday, April 11th from 6:00-9:00pm, and is open to all MIX11 attendees who want to have a nosh, hang with the community, and vote for their favorite open source projects. Prizes will be awarded, but the key is the opportunity to showcase the open source projects created by the community, stir the collective brainpower, and network. There will be food, drinks, a fun Vegas atmosphere, and a chance to meet many of the MIX11 speakers and attendees.  If you have a project you want to show off, register by sending your name, project name, link to your project, Twitter ID, and email address to John Papa at jopapa@microsoft.com.

      I'm looking forward to the open source fest! Unfortunately, I won't have anything to show, but I'm hoping to get involved with something.

      Maybe one thing you could do is provide a way for the open source project teams to post where they need help. Kind of an open source job board.  It might be especially beneficial at MIX because there is a higher concentration of us UX/Front-End people and many open source projects tend to be weak on the design and UX side of things.
