Guerrilla Open Source*
Come hear tales of how Open Source can survive, and even thrive, within the confines of some of the world's largest technology companies.
The oft forgotten other half of the famous aphorism “Information wants to be free” is “Information wants to be expensive”. Indeed, some of the world’s most valuable companies have been built on expensive information. Does that mean that these companies cannot also participate in the Open Source movement? This talk will cover a few of my personal experiences developing Open Source Software while employed at large technology companies, as well as how lessons learned there have helped inform my continued approach to the Open Source world.
I have 4 years experience as a college lecturer and have given presentations at the Boston Ruby Group's monthly meetings as well as two Ruby Conferences.
