What is Open Source RTP?
The meetup examines topics and technologies in the open source/tech/web space. Each meeting features:

  • technical talks from subject matter experts
  • networking
  • food and beverages
  • swag/technology giveaways

Target Audience
Target audience includes technologists and technology decision makers of all types, and of all experience levels. Being inclusive is a core principle and one we strongly believe in.

How Often Do We Meet?
Meetups take place every month – on average 10 or so a year.

When Do We Meet?
Meetups generally take place in the evening (live programming begins at 6:30 pm ET), but we’ll host a few sessions and special events during the day for those that can’t make it out during evening hours.

Who Hosts The Meetup?
The meetup is hosted by All Things Open (ATO), the team behind the All Things Open conference and network. We’ve been hosting open source events for nearly 15 years, way before it was cool.

Cost
All meetups are 100% FREE to attend. *Note, the team doesn’t sell products or services, so there is no “catch”. We simply love bringing people together around open source technology. See our core values here.

Where Do We Meetup?
Meetups take place all over the RTP region, including Raleigh, Morrisville, Durham, Cary, etc. An honest effort is made to move events around so everyone can attend and participate. A

How Do I “Join”?

*Note, joining one or both of the above is not required to attend a meetup. You can simply show up if you like. 

Upcoming Meetups

  • Tuesday, April 16 – Managing infrastructure and Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) are topics of huge interest to our community, and we’ll use the April meetup as an opportunity to examine an open source software (OSS) tool that will help you do both better – OpenTofu. Our speaker will be Douglas Flagg and we’ll be onsite at Fidelity Investments in Durham.
