Open Source in the Age of Cloud and Microservices

Date: 2023-12-14
Time: 13:40–14:30
Room: Tycho

The movement to cloud and microservice architectures have changed the industry quite a bit recently. These changes have an influence on open source both from a community and from a business perspective.

This presentation takes you on a journey of 30+ years of free and open-source software development. It shows the evolution of the movement and the ecosystem. With changes in business models open source communities have changed and vice versa.

The requirements of cloud and microservices have forced yet another paradigm shift onto the open source world. However, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Thus this presentation also shows how resilient the open source movement is.
