What is our motivation for Open Source? Does it bring value to our business? Allow me to share some thoughts on an Open Source study and motivation for Open* with you.
Last week, something exciting happened: We were actually able to physically attend an event hosted by the Research Center for Digital Sustainability from the University of Bern. The main reason for the event was the publication of this year’s Open Source Survey, but for us it was also a great opportunity to learn more about how other companies use or develop Open Source, build communities, and define the cultural aspect around Open Source. And if that was not exciting enough: actually being able to talk to other people over a cold beverage was definitely a big plus after the past months.
I want to share some insights and thoughts about the study, conversations and talks from the event, and finally about our Open* journey with you.
