Presented by John Mark Walker, Founder, Open Source Entrepreneur Network - osenetwork.com
Everyone uses open source now; that much is a given. It's not so much about whether you use open source, but how do you optimize your usage and contributions. How do you transform your engineering and product management organizations to incorporate open source? How do you clear legal hurdles without putting your company at risk? How do you take advantage of the innovation happening on the upstream platforms while continuing to deliver products on schedule? What is the best way to participate in these upstream communities and ecosystems? And if you sell a product, how do you utilize open source platforms and sell something that can be obtained for free?
In this symposium from the Open Source Entrepreneur Network, we will:
  • Discuss the myriad of business models for selling open source-based products and services
  • Investigate potential legal landmines around contributing to and using open source software
  • Look at best practices for incorporating the best of upstream open source innovation into your organization
The most successful organizations will be the ones that optimize the above - learn why participating and collaborating can be the key to building out your business and product strategy.
