Upcoming keynote: Sustainable open source

I’ll be keynoting the 16th KKIO Software Engineering Conference on Sept 22, 2014, in Posnan, Poland. Here is the abstract. See you at the conference!

Abstract

MySQL was sold for one billion US-dollar. Red Hat is worth a multiple of that. The Eclipse Foundation has pushed many software tool vendors out of business. How come that open source, a phenomenon dubbed “temporary” not only has become sustainable but the business strategy of choice? In this talk, I discuss the four main business models, two for-profit and two not-for-profit, that have made open source sustainable. These models are changing the business of software and the future of our industry.
