Open Source as a Business

by David Cramer for

It’s becoming more and more common that companies are driving open source initiatives, but it’s still far from a standard.

This talk will focus on the arguments one might make for (or against) open source in a company or even as a company. It will be driven from the takeaways of pushing open source as a fundamental culture at Disqus as well as the lessons learned from establishing a real business from an open source project.

Specifically, I’ll cover:

  • Why open source is important for companies like Disqus
  • The takeaways of choosing to drive and use open source products
  • How a simple project like Sentry was born
  • Why Sentry remains open source (even as a for-profit business)
