Open Source and You

A session at Groovy & Grails eXchange 2013

Open Source has been around for a long time, with perhaps it's first formal appearance in the guise of the GNU project in 1983. 30 years later, do we yet understand how open source works? How is it funded? Is it a sustainable model? And how should we as developers approach open source?

These are important questions to answer if we are to gain the benefits of open source and avoid disappointment. You will learn that open source software cannot be treated as simply having no financial cost and that investment reaps rewards. We'll also discuss how to get communities more active and engaged.
