Why Attend?

Join the Mailing List

After all these years, open source skills are more important and sought after than ever.

More than anything, ATO is an educational conference where attendees learn about new technologies and topics, and it’s always been that way. The goal is for attendees to leave having learned something or been made aware of something new.

We’ve said it a thousand times – speakers are the reason people attend an event, period. The sessions they deliver provide the education that is so valuable. The lineup in 2024 will be tremendous. See speakers from 2023202220212020 and 2019

Attendance at ATO is always very, very good and the audience is a technical and sophisticated one.

For the 12th year in a row, the Raleigh Convention Center in downtown Raleigh, NC will serve as the host location. The layout is structured perfectly for an amazing attendee experience. In addition, it is downtown and within easy walking distance from attractions, hotels, restaurants and some of the top tech companies in the world.

You’ll be visiting Raleigh and The Research Triangle Park, one of the fastest growing tech centers in the U.S. and the world. Learn more about the location and venue.

The ATO community is a good one – kind, generous and genuinely supportive of other attendees and the open source community in general.

We started All Things Open to create an accessible and affordable world-class open source/tech/web conference. We strongly felt a world-class experience and accessibility shouldn’t be mutually exclusive, and 12 years later, we still do.
