2018 Opensource.com community moderator meeting

One discussion topic at our meeting was how to find our future community moderators. Are you interested in learning more about what it takes to become an Opensource.com community moderator and the perks that come with it? Let me know and I'll tell you all about it.

Thank you! to everyone who stopped by the Opensource.com All Things Open booth; to our community moderators who are a joy to know, traveled from as far away as New Zealand to meet with us, and help drive the direction of the site; to the speakers who contributed to our ATO series; and to Todd Lewis and the All Things Open organizers, speakers, and volunteers who put on a world-class event in our Raleigh community.
