  • 1. 7 RULES OF DOING BUSINESS WITH OPEN SOURCE MIR NAZIM iKraft Software Pvt Ltd mir.nazim@ikraftsoft.com blog: http://saunzal.org    
  • 2. RULE 1 BE PASSIONATE (open source == passion) if you don't love it, you do not know it    
  • 3. RULE 2 BE AN EVANGELIST (open source + passion => evangelist) use, promote and advocate    
  • 4. RULE 3 DO ONE THING AND DO IT WELL (unix was built that way. And unix is big!) if you do it all, you don't do anything well.    
  • 5. RULE 4 DON'T PITCH COMPETING PROJECTS (example: joomla Vs drupal) generates bad vibes in community (example: think you are not good at taking decisions)    
  • 6. RULE 5 PARTICIPATE AND COLLABORATE (no community = no open source) show off your technical abilities + key to being loved in the community    
  • 7. RULE 6 KNOW IT WELL (do I need say more) know your niche + know your competion remember: competion means other FOSS projects (companies is a differen competion all together)
