OSS - Open Source Leadership [clear filter]

Open Source Community Development in Greater China - Richard Lin, Huawei & Yun-Chen Chien, g0v.tw
The beginning of open source software is rooted in the community. Community begins with a developer willing to open source code to attract more developers to contribute together. Then, there is a community which can grow organically by contributors. Today, the rapid development of open source in Mainland China mostly comes from the efforts of enterprises, but the spirit of contribution and collaboration does not seem to be as strong as that of US and Europe. The two speakers of this talk, Richard and Yun-Chen, are contributors and community coordinators from communities in Taiwan such as COSCUP and g0v.tw. They will share the observation, experience and analysis of the bottom-up open source community buildings in Taiwan and Hong Kong as the best practice and examples of the operation and development of the community in mainland China.

Community Data is Not Community Metrics - Brian Proffitt, Red Hat
As Project CHAOSS highlights, metrics are key to measuring community health. And that quantitative data is a key to these metrics. But, as Brian Proffitt will describe in this talk, all the data in the world won't help you find answers if you don't know what the questions are. Brian will walk attendees through what happens when pretty data can distract from the real value of metrics, and what the right questions can be.

The Real Costs of Open Source Sustainability - VM (Vicky) Brasseur, Juniper Networks
In 2016 Nadia Eghbal released "Roads and Bridges: The Unseen Labor Behind Our Digital Infrastructure," which shines a light on how few people maintain the software that underpins a large amount of the internet and the services that run on it.

The software world has rallied around Open Source Sustainability. Going with what they know, folks mostly focus on paying FOSS developers. Funding drives were funded. Foundations were founded. Startups started up. Venture capitalists ventured that capital.

Money isn't the only part of sustainable FOSS projects. Sustainability is a multi-faceted concept that can't work if people focus on only one of its many elements.

This talk will:

* Review literature around the concept of sustainability
* Propose a definition that more accurately details what "sustainable" means to FOSS
* Provide tips for starting with your FOSS sustainability efforts

Selling Open Source Strategy - Michael Cheng, Facebook
We love open source and for many of us, open source started as a hobby. But somewhere along the way, we've all had to sell its value to someone skeptical. That pitch hasn't always easy. It may not even work in some industries. However, to take open source into future, we will all need it as a critical part of our repertoire.

Whether its pitching investors, getting your company to invest in a program office or convincing your manager to make open source part of your job, we could all do a better job of crafting compelling and coherent narratives for how to translate open source into business value. As more and more mainstream companies begin to understand and invest in open source, we'll need the tools and concepts to help capitalize on these opportunities.

Drawing from pitches to VCs, investors and board rooms, this talk explores themes and strategies for how to find and improve your voice and personal narrative to make open source an essential part of your growth trajectory.

Open Source and Standards Collaboration - Craig Northway, Qualcomm Technologies Inc
Recently there is a significant interest and need for Standards Defining Organizations (SDOs) to also participate in Open Source projects. Companies need to manage their standards and open source engagements in a coordinated manner. This has caused Industry Standards Program Offices (ISPO) and Open Source Program Offices (OSPO) to interact more frequently. Qualcomm has a rich history in SDOs and more recently is a strong developer and contributor in mobile and connectivity related Open Source projects. In this presentation we will review what we have learnt from joint engagements and collaboration between SDOs and OS.

We'll discuss typical standards and open source organizations and processes and address questions such as: What can your ISPO learn from your OSPO? What can your OSPO learn from your ISPO? And how can these 2 organizations collaborate within your company?
