Open Source 101 2022 – A Review

Open Source 101 2022 was the 8th event we’ve hosted – and it was fantastic.

The format was virtual / online only due to COVID and Omicron, and although we’ve all been attending and participating virtually for two years now, the networking and “vibe” was extremely positive, enthusiastic and supportive.

The team behind the event. Everyone worked hard behind the scenes.
We constructed a makeshift “set” at Expansive Workspaces in downtown Columbia, SC

The virtual format also enabled a global audience to participate (78 countries were represented), which resulted in a richer experience for everyone.

And to be fair, we did experience a few technical issues that impacted the attendee experience (three tracks experienced Zoom issues). To everyone affected, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and really appreciate your patience and kind words. Each and every one of you were gracious and understanding in your response and communication/feedback. We could not be more grateful.

We’ve attempted to “sum up” Open Source 101 2022 below with graphics, numbers and links. Take a look and let us know if you have questions at

And to everyone that registered and participated – THANK YOU from the entire ATO team!! We have the best community in the world, and OS101 was again proof of that.

Finally.. many, many thanks to our wonderful and world-class sponsors and partners for making the event possible as well. Please visit each of them and say “thanks” if the opportunity arises.
