In the summer of 1787, a community of diverse individuals with a common challenge met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to discuss their problems with the Articles of Confederation and work towards a better outcome.

The attendees desired that the different states better understand and communicate with each other, and so they debated how best to do something new while organizing a framework for the entities which were represented and those new ones which were to come.

Come discover the similarities between Open Source and OpenStack communities and the Constitutional Convention over 200 years ago and what lessons there might be from history for our community.
