Every spring the team at All Things Open not only hosts Open Source 101, but we attend a good number of events.
The reasons are simple: To support the community by creating educational and networking opportunities, and to help out wherever and however we can.
There are so many great events being hosted by so many great people, we figure the least we can do is show up, help out, and get the word out in every way possible.
We encourage you to come out and join us at the following local and not-so-local events throughout the remainder of the spring. We’ll greet you with a smile and will most likely have a few spare t-shirts and stickers available.
You can find us at the following amazing events:
Tuesday, April 17 – Open Source 101 – Columbia, SC
An event we host ourselves, the one-day conference will be the second in a series hosted this spring. Hundreds of technologists and decision makers will attend and content will cover the technologies and processes foundational to open source, open tech, and the open web.

Tuesday, April 17 – East Coast Game Conference – Raleigh, NC
It will be a busy Tuesday as we pull double-duty, but it’s well worth it as we attend and support this very cool conference hosted by Walter Rotenberry and his team. It’s the largest gathering of video game professionals on the east coast of the U.S. and we’ll have a booth and will be giving away t-shirts and other swag. We have also partnered with the team at Red Hat to deliver a fantastic workshop on open source gaming tools.
