Open Source for Closed Source Companies

45 minute beginner seminar

Description/Proposal

Just because you’re selling SaaS doesn’t mean you can’t adopt open source principles in your organization. We'll talk about how individuals and companies can open source their documentation, libraries, and ideas for the greater good of the community in a way that doesn’t mean giving it all away for free. Open source goes beyond software; it’s also an approach to the non-software aspects of your business. No matter what you’re shipping for profit, there are several aspects of your company that you can make public to increase transparency within your organization as well as outside of it.
