In this talk, I explain the single-vendor open source business model (also: multi-licensing, open core) and in particular its intellectual property strategies. This is the slide deck of a previously posted video.
In this talk, I explain the significance of the software industry for a country’s economy and how to strengthen it using open source. It is directed at public policy makers and the general public. This is the slide deck of a previously posted video.
My research and teaching group just celebrated its tenth anniversary, and I wanted to take some time to reflect on our teaching: What worked and what didn’t.
When I started as a university professor ten years ago, I drew on my experience as a student, as a teacher, as a practitioner, and as an entrepreneur, to define the basic principles of how I wanted to teach:
Theory and practice should be joined at the hip; there should only be minimal delay, if any, between hearing some concept and applying it in practice
Learning requires repetition and practice, so the theory and practice of something to learn needs to be drawn out over several iterations to become effective
Learning is a marathon, not a sprint; therefore, learning and using the stick (grading) to direct learning should be continuous and not a fire-and-forget exercise
Feedback needs to be immediate and connected to a student’s actual doing, and not come at the end of a semester or later
Learning is holistic; while some concepts can be isolated, more often than not, concepts interact and require a realistic setting to be learned

In this video, I explain the single-vendor open source business model (also: multi-licensing, open core) and in particular its intellectual property strategies. This talk is partly a reaction to the recent licensing changes by commercial open source firms and the resulting confusion. An upcoming article will go into more detail next year.
