Todd is the creator of multiple open source technology conferences and meetups, including All Things Open and the Open Source 101 conference series. All Things Open is now the largest open source/tech/web event on the East Coast of the United States. In addition to conferences, he's worked with numerous nonprofits, educational institutions and elected officials to encourage technology education curriculum creation and adoption. He regularly speaks at conferences and events, and to audiences of all types and sizes. He strongly feels open source will remain the dominant methodology in the future.
