The best way for developers to solve the world’s problems is through an open ecosystem that supports their needs. Open innovation, open platforms and horizontal competition offer choice and build trust. An open ecosystem helps lower complexity and improve productivity, portability, and performance so developers can focus on creating innovative solutions. What challenges could you face to build a business case for consuming and contributing to open source? How do you build that culture of open ecosystem within your company? What tools and techniques can be used to enable developers to contribute effectively to open source? What role does Open Source Program Office play in all this? What is the importance of soft skills to foster this environment? This talk uses personal experience across multiple companies to address these questions and much more.
