All Things Open Celebrates its 10th Anniversary

All Things Open (ATO), the largest open source conference on the U.S. East Coast will host its 10th-anniversary event in Raleigh, NC bringing together the world’s top open source developers, technologists, community leaders and decision makers from all over the world. This year’s event is in person and online, with more than 150 speakers and 200+ sessions featured on Tuesday, November 1 and Wednesday, November 2. In conjunction with ATO, two free in-person co-located events – Inclusion & Diversity in Open Source and Community Leadership Summit (CLS) – will take place respectively on Sunday, October 30 and Monday, October 31. (Both events require separate registration.)

The folks behind ATO believe open source is at the core of innovation and remains a gateway to participation and opportunity, as evidenced in the stats below and a proliferation in inclusion and diversity efforts.

VMware OSPO at ATO

VMware’s Director of Open Source Community Strategy, Dawn Foster, will be speaking at the event on November 2 from 2:45 – 3:30 EDT on GitHub API 101 with Python and Jupyter Notebooks. In her talk, she’ll explain why GitHub APIs are powerful tools for accessing data about open source projects and are easier to use than many people realize. She’ll then conduct a quick tour of commonly used GitHub API calls. The audience will walk away with an understanding of how to use the GitHub API to gather some basic information along with the link to a GitHub repository containing the notebooks, demos and other materials from the session.

This year marks Dawn’s third year speaking at ATO (in person and virtually). “It’s a great conference. It’s so well organized, and I love the community feel of it. The organizers and attendees are so friendly and welcoming.”
