This Friday and Saturday, the Chicago area open source community will converge on the University of Illinois at Chicago for this year’s Flourish Conference.

Flourish is a totally free (as in beer) conference and if you register ahead of time you get a free t-shirt as well.  Speakers will be covering various topics such as Git, Python, Women in Open Source, Building Open Source Software Communities and Video Recording Presentations.

Pumping Station: One will be manning a table in the mini-expo room handing out stickers and debuting our larger than life photobooth TARDIS for the first time outside our space.  Bring yourself and your friends to come see us and all the great speakers at UIC this weekend.  At 6:00 PM on Saturday right after Flourish 2010 closes, there will be an afterparty at OfficePort Chicago sponsored by
