I was really impressed with All Things Open last year and have subsequently become friends with the principle organizer, Todd Lewis. I loved how the team put together a show with the right balance of community and corporation, great content, exhibition and more.
All Thing Open 2016 is happening next week and I will be participating in a number of areas:
- I will be MCing the keynotes for the event. I am looking forward to introducing such a tremendous group of speakers.
- Jeremy King, CTO of Walmart Labs and I will be having a fireside chat. I am looking forward to delving into the work they are doing.
- I will also be participating in a panel about openness and collaboration, and delivering a talk about building a community exoskeleton.
- It is looking pretty likely I will be doing a book signing with free copies of The Art of Community to be given away thanks to my friends at O’Reilly!
The event takes place in Raleigh, and if you haven’t registered yet, do so right here!
Also, a huge thanks to Red Hat and opensource.com for flying me out. I will be joining the team for a day of meetings prior to All Things Open – looking forward to the discussions!
