In May 2023, I gave a talk about user-led open source consortia at the Open Logistics Foundation’s (OLF) open source innovation day. In a user-led open source consortium, software users come together to develop or sponsor the development of the software they need to run their business as open-source software. The OLF is an excellent example of this, representing the German and international logistics company community.
The OLF doubled down: After the conference talk, they invited and penned for me an article about open source communities in their own magazine, the open logistics magazine. The article appeared in issue 2 of the new magazine. Not to slow down, they are now using and reusing the article in various forms for social media marketing. Catch it, while it is hot!
All eyes on the Open Logistics Foundation: They are on a roll!
