Developing profitable business with open source software is an essential component of a healthy commercial eco-system. Open source software is quickly providing a benchmark for products, services and interfaces across all aspects of software related business. Open source is no longer a component developed by a university one might fit into a product, it has become a methodology for industrial alignment and architectural co-development. Open source has not reached the point where it can be widely consumed “from the repo” in commercial environments, however the line between open code and shipped products continues to thin.
How does an industry continue to motivate and promote the development and adoption of new technologies through open source co-development, while maintaining a highly motivated, skilled and compensated workforce driving innovation through the ecosystem. This talk will discuss methods for efficiently bridging the gap between open source and product, the emerging roles of the consumer and seller in a co-producer ecosystem and describe models for promoting community engagement and innovation.
