OSS Business models

818

Published on

From a philosophical point of view, everybody loves open source software: you, your wife or girl friend, your father, your mother, grand-father or grand-mother, your children, your boss, your employees, your custormers, your students, your teachers, your cat even your fish, everybody.

Once the first enthusiasm gone (it takes arount 10 minutes for persons and 3 sec. for the fish), a simple question arises : ok, open source is not gratis, however, a consequence of the open redistribution is gratuity, so how are you making a living with open source software ? Is it viable in the long term ?

The conference will present the mechanisms (the "business models") around open source software and especially those for software editors.
