Event Details

Open source. It's faster, cleaner, and more accurate than traditional methodologies -- and it's the culture the Triangle is fast-becoming known for. There's a reason that Red Hat, the first billion-dollar open source company, has built its headquarters here.

For September's “RTP 180," we're celebrating our region's fondness for open source with a speaker series that pulls from our three founding universities (NC State, Duke University, UNC-Chapel Hill), companies and communities. On September 17, we hope you will join us from 6:00-7:30, at RTP’s headquarters (12 Davis Drive, Durham, NC), for "RTP 180: Open Source All the Things.”

Our doors open at 5:00 so you can stop in right after work to grab a snack; a reception will follow after the event. We hear there will be tacos! And Gizmo BrewWorks.

Emcee Will Hardison returns to host and there are no suits, no ties, and definitely no hats allowed, unless they're red fedoras. This is the future of RTP. And it's a loud one.

See you there? Or at the "All Things Open" conference Oct 23-24 - where the world's open source leaders will convene in Raleigh.

Additional Details:

The 180° series is meant to be fun and light-hearted -- a sum of all the awesome of the Triangle. Our last event garnered some press attention and general appreciation; we hope you'll join us for the next iteration.

Our hashtag is #RTP180.

And after the event, videos of speakers will be uploaded to our YouTube channel over at
