Event Overview

We started the Open Source 101 series in 2017, and we’re thrilled to be hosting event #8 on Tuesday, March 29 online.

The goal of the conference remains the same as it was in year one – to provide attendees an open source educational and networking on-ramp (or refresher) to better position them to contribute and consume effectively. When more people are contributing and consuming, we all benefit.

We hope you will register and join us on the 29th (it’s FREE).  

Virtual / Online Only

Because of COVID and Omicron, Open Source 2022 will be online/virtual only. Safety remains a top priority and this format will allow a truly global audience.

Registration is FREE, thanks to sponsors

We’ve got the best partners in the world, and OS101 will again serve as proof. Attendees won’t pay a dime to register, consume content and network.

What is Open Source 101? Two Minute Video Overview

We recently shot a quick 2 minute overview of the conference and included video footage from past events. We’ll do our best to replicate the in-person experience virtual on the 29th.

Gamification and Cool Prizes Available

The virtual environment will again be gamified this year and some very cool prizes will be up-for-grabs to those competing and accumulating points. We hope this adds a fun and engaging element for everyone, and it certainly has when we’ve done it in the past.

40+ expert speakers will deliver content

We’re grateful some of the top technologists in the world will deliver sessions in 2022.
