Keynote: Back To The Future of Open Source

Date: 2010-12-06
Time: 09:45–10:45
Room: Berlin 1+2

After a decade of "business model innovation" usually involving a dominant corporate sponsor, the open source community is seeing the return of collaborative community development as a strength. Communities like OpenStack, Illumos and the Document Foundation treat open-by-rule as a key strength. Meanwhile, contributor agreements are under pressure and license proliferation seems to be over. Why is this change happening? What are its drivers? Will it last? How does this inform the PostgreSQL community and its future?
