Throwing code over the wall, holding open source release until "perfection," and expecting too much from the community are just a few of the common mistakes we see in enterprise open source efforts. We'll explore these and other mistakes along with successful counterexamples drawn from a varied consulting practice. The involvement of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) in the GeoNode project will serve as a case study of best practices for institutional investment in open source.  This talk is aimed at decision-makers at all levels of an organization.

As engineers, we build some pretty cool apps. Inevitably, those cool apps have errors. Keeping track of these issues can get messy, getting alerted is stressful, and measuring it can provide you with an overwhelming amount of info. So, how do we combine all these things to make our cool apps work even better than before?
