Google Open Source sponsors a variety of events across open source, from local meetups to industry-wide conferences, as well as hosting own our events to share Google expertise. We strive to support collaborative and welcoming spaces—please stop by our booths and spaces to say 'hi'! We'd love to meet you.

Google in the industry

We want open source projects and community members to thrive, and by sponsoring events, we help create spaces of connection, learning, sharing, and trust in our communities.
