This week in Portland is Oscon, the annual celebration of open source software, architecture, frameworks, and tools for today’s engineers.
We couldn’t be there ourselves, so instead we’ve assembled a list of some open source projects our members have contributed to the community that we think you’ll find valuable in your own work.

Here at Heavybit we understand the important role open-source software plays in building great commercial products, particularly at developer tool companies. We value the communities that emerge around open-source projects, and we see some of the values that define open-source as critical elements of all great software.
