by | Fri 16 Oct 2015

Tomorrow morning at the ungodly hour of 6am I board a slight to Raleigh for the [All Things Open](https://www.allthingsopen.org/) conference. The conference starts on Monday, but I am flying out earlier for a bunch of meetings with folks from opensource.com.

This is my first time at All Things Open but it looks like they have a stunning line up of speakers and some great folks attending.

I just wanted to share some of the things I will be doing there:

* **Tues 20th Oct at 9.05am – Keynote** – I will be delivering a keynote about the opportunity for Open Source and effective collaboration and community leadership to solve problems and innovate. The presentation will delve into the evolution of technology, where Open Source plays a role, the challenges we need to solve, and the opportunity everyone in the room can participate in.
* **Tues 20th Oct at 12.15pm – Lightning Talk** – I will be giving one of the lightning talks. It will an introduction to the fascinating science of *behavioral economics* and how it can provide a scaffolding for building effective teams and communities.
* **Tues 20th Oct at at 2.15pm – Presentation** – I will delivering a presentation called *A Crash Course in Bacon Flavored Community Management*. In it I will be discussing the key components of building strong and empowered communities, how we execute in those elements, how we manage politics and conflict, and tracking success and growth.
* **Tues 20th Oct at at 3.00pm – Book Signing** – I will be signing free copies of *The Art of Community* at the opensource.com booth (booth #17). Come and say hi, get a free book, and have a natter. Books are limited, so get there early.

I hope to see you there!
