Development on Open Source platforms with a billion dollars at risk

A session at Open Source Developers' Conference 2010

  • Adam Kennedy

Every year Corporate Express delivers 1-2 billion dollars of material to governments and companies around the country, everything from pens and paper to body bags and explosive metallic sodium.

At some point, most of these order move through a large and complex non-public website built on an Open Source platform.

This wide ranging talk will take you behind the scenes of this operation for the first time. We'll discuss which areas Open Source excels at, where it fails, and what we've had to do with it to push at the limits of software complexity.

Finally, we'll demonstrate some of the tools and techniques we've created over the years to adapt to life in a world where bugs in your software can bankrupt your company or damage your country.
