Tracey Halvorsen is a consultant, designer, painter, author, and speaker. Her background in visual art and computer-based technology and her hands-on style of leadership has helped Fastspot consistently create award-winning and industry recognized websites, applications and marketing campaigns. Halvorsen, known for her innovative thinking and creative problem solving, is never short on opinions or ways to make things better, and she shares these observations in her blog, Think Design Interact. She is also currently an active board member with the Greater Baltimore Technology Council, seeking to enhance Baltimore's national visibility and attraction as a technology and cultural hub.
At the end of the day, it's all about content. When it comes to open source and providing a service to the community for free, the more people use it, the more the community can evolve around it. Big Tree, an open source CMS, isn't necessarily giving anything away, they're helping people grow. During this presentation Tracey will talk about proprietary vs. open source, community vs. competition, problems her team faced while building Big Tree, issues within the industry, and offering a service for free
