  8. 8. The Linux Foundation is a leader in open source collaboration The media and the industry agree on the value provided by a neutral The Linux Foundation “OpenDaylight arrives with some instant credibility because it’s hosted by the Linux Foundation, the not-for-profit that oversees the Linux operating system, the most successful open source project of them all.” “Just like the Linux kernel, Xen enjoys contributions from a variety of different companies, so a vendor-neutral organization to host development and collaboration is a big win for the project.” "The Linux Foundation has shown it can manage competing visions and egos, a bit like when Phil Jackson ran the Bulls." "Google is committed to advancing the state of computing, and to helping businesses everywhere benefit from the patterns that have proven so effective to us in operating at Internet scale. We believe that this foundation will help harmonize the broader ecosystem, and are pleased to contribute Kubernetes, the open source cluster scheduler, to the foundation as a seed technology." 12 Oct 2017 The Linux Foundation - Board of Directors 8

  20. 20. It’s actually open source software that’s eating the world. - VentureBeat 2015
  21. 21. Open Source Isn’t Slowing Down Any Time Soon
  22. 22. Code Club (Sandwich) Choose a Framework Open Source Code (~20%) Write Custom Code Custom Code (~10%) Use Open Source Libraries to Solve Problems Open Source Code (~70%) Open Source Code = ~ 90%
  23. 23. The Real Question is Which Projects Matter? ValueofofIndividualProject Number of Open Source Projects
  24. 24. The Answer: Projects With Sustainable Ecosystems Successful projects depend on members, developers, standards and infrastructure to develop products that the market will adopt PROJECTS PROFITS PRODUCTS DEVELOPER COMMUNITY
  25. 25. Sustainable collaboration requires real work GOVERNANCE AND MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROCESS INFRASTRUCTURE ECOSYSTEM DEVELOPMENT IP MANAGEMENT o Incorporation, Tax status, Bylaws, Member Agreements, Anti-trust, etc. o Ongoing business development and membership recruitment o Technical Decision Making Framework o Project Life Cycle o Release Process o Custom infrastructure using open source best practices o Security and reliability o Marketing o Events o Training o Code Provenance, license management o Trademark management o Legal defense and Collaboration
  26. 26. A sustainable ecosystem engages developers, users and vendors Sustainable projects have a developer community whose technology is used in commercial solutions that profit businesses, who in turn participate and reinvest back into the project and hire developers to work in the community. Community Development Products/Solutions Bug Fixes, Security Updates Project Governance & IP Model Commercial dependency drives a virtuous cycle of commercial and community engagement based on accepted governance and IP models
  27. 27. Sustainability is about longevity sustainability (from sustain and ability) is the property of systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely.
  28. 28. Products have a lifecycle INVESTMENT TIME Invest Reap rewards
  29. 29. Open Source Projects also follow a life cycle INVESTMENT TIME
