All Things Open (ATO) is one of the largest Open Source conferences on the east coast of the United States. This year it will take place from October 15th to October 17th in Raleigh, North Carolina. ATO is about making Open Source ideas affordable and easy for everyone. People are welcomed from all over the world to come to listen to experts but also join in the conversation. The topics range from new technologies to community building. This inclusive event will return to its traditional home at the Raleigh Convention Center, North Carolina. Early bird pricing is starting at $99 for all three days. If you are underrepresented in tech, there are scholarships available to attend for free.
The ATO conference has always been a great opportunity for education and networking, drawing professionals from across the globe. For 2023, the conference is gearing up to host an event mirroring its pre-COVID days in 2019, with the optimistic anticipation of attracting 5,000 attendees. October 15 kicks off with two co-located events, both free of charge – the Inclusion & Diversity in Open Source, and the Community Leadership Summit. These gatherings historically attract a strong turnout and act as critical dialogues for developing the open-source community. One of my favorite things about ATO is that they know that their large platform can lead to more inclusion in the Open Source community and they do it. Following this, October 16 and 17 will dive into the main conference days with keynotes, featured lunch sessions, and breakout sessions of various lengths. They are expecting around 20 tracks of sessions and nearly 100 speakers.
So, we have lots of speakers from all over the Open Source community, major tech companies offering major job opportunities, diversity and inclusion talks that seek to make the community even more “Open” and thousands of people from all over who are coming to teach and learn all things Open Source. Don’t miss this chance to be part of one of the fastest-growing tech centers in the world. Register now and be a part of this incredible journey of open source at ATO 2023.
