As the economy has gone into freefall, funding for new projects has dried up overnight. Developers need to be creative about sourcing a no or low cost technology stack that they can use as a platform for innovation. The first thing that often goes out the door are the fun side projects that lead to innovation and advancement. Instead, resources are allocated conservatively to the older, more mainstream projects. In this session we will explore many of the ways to innovate without the need for a significant budget by using open source software to try new things under the radar and on a shoestring budget. This session will be packed with success stories of business-critical applications built entirely on open source. Attendees will leave the room armed with what they need to know to calm their CIO’s concerns about business critical open source so no apology will ever be necessary.
