Open Source:  What it is Today

The Models (Business and Education as well as the future of government)

&

Principles (Openness, Transparency., Collaboration. Rapid prototyping)

 

Abstract

 

"Open source” was once a way to describe software code and a collaborative model for its development. It's now a business model, an education model, and the future of government. It's changing our lives through its principles: Openness. Transparency. Collaboration. Rapid prototyping. It's also the best way to get your ideas heard, make the world a better a place, and still turn a profit. No matter what business you're in, you can take a lesson from open source.  But it can be hard to understand how to apply those things--much less explain them to someone else--if you don't already know how they work for software development. To that goal, I use the broad language of pop culture. With examples ranging from musicians to movies to fashion design, I'll explain those principles that have made open source successful for software development alongside real examples of how open source is improving our world

 

Presenter
