Open Source Software

I was recently invited to speak at Open Source 101 in Raleigh, NC on February 4, 2017. The event is being organized by the same team that organizes All Things Open and Great Wide Open conferences, so it is sure to be another great event.

In the last few years, companies like Twitter, Facebook and Shopify release software libraries and frameworks that they used internally to the open source community; we have witnessed Oracle buying up open source projects like MySQL; and though pigs still don’t fly, Microsoft released .NET with open source licensing and partnered with RedHat to offer RHEL on Azure. The future of software is open source, which means that the best jobs will be on open source projects.
