  1. 1. Open Source is Good for both Business and Humanity Jonas Rosland Community Manager EMC {code}
  2. 2. History of OSS Genesis Where it led us Definitions Agenda Create OSS Get started Community The results For Business For Humanity The Future
  3. 3. History of OSS Giving away things for free
  4. 4. The UNIVAC A-2 system was released to customers in 1953 with its source code,_Boston

  7. 7. “Hello everybody out there using minix - I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones.” - Linus Torvalds, August 1991
  8. 8. PS. Yes - it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs. It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never will support anything other than AT- harddisks, as that's all I have :-(. - Linus Torvalds, August 1991
  9. 9. The Apache HTTP Server is released 1995
  10. 10. In 1997, Eric Raymond published The Cathedral and the Bazaar, a reflective analysis of the hacker community and free-software principles

  12. 12. OSS Definition Gather around a common goal
  13. 13. On January 22, 1998, Netscape announces that they will give away their Navigator browser and it's source code

  15. 15. On February 23rd, Netscape created the Mozilla project to coordinate the development of their now Open Source software
  16. 16. In 1997, Eric Raymond published The Cathedral and the Bazaar, a reflective analysis of the hacker community and free-software principles
  17. 17. • Freely accessed, used, changed and shared • Open collaboration • No vendor lock-in • No discrimination • Can be used for commercial purposes! More details here: Open Source definition
  18. 18. Who creates Open Source software?
  19. 19. Patents and OSS can co-exist, but needs commitment to survive • Microsoft Patent Promises and Patents • • Google Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge • • Tesla Patent Pledge • What about patents?
  20. 20. So how do you get started with OSS?
  21. 21. • Have an idea and share it with others • Choose a license • Start work and publish it • Invite the community and grow with it • Experiment! Open Source checklist
  22. 22.
  23. 23. • Collaboration is key • No one is an expert on everything • More people means more ideas • Not all are good! • Two-way communication • Ask your community what works • Ask for new features • Communicate plans early You need the community
  24. 24. We also need, among other things: • Designers • Writers • Marketing • Community managers • Bloggers • Mentors But it’s not all just code,,
  25. 25. The results You’re using Open Source things daily!
  26. 26. The Open Source movement has paved the way for modern software and hardware: • The Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack • OpenSSL • BIND, the DNS server that powers the Internet • Android devices • Arduino and the Internet of Things • Docker Open Source has made this possible,, content/uploads/2015/06/lamp-stack2.jpg,
  27. 27. • Highly available cloud resources • Cheap hardware • Automation tools • Short, iterative development cycles • Massive amounts of ready-to-run code Thanks to Open Source we now have
  28. 28. • Global collaboration • Accelerates innovation • Little to no financial resources needed • Freedom of choice • Nothing to hide • Bug-fixes • Features • Security Enabling us to move fast–Peters_projection
  29. 29. • Secure communications world-wide • Self-driving cars • Retrieving images from the surface of Mars • Posting pictures on Facebook To create life-changing opportunities

  32. 32. Keep innovating.
  33. 33. Summary
  34. 34. 1953 to now - it all started by sharing code
  35. 35. Join us in sharing knowledge!
  36. 36. Thank you!
