Swimming upstream, freeing the code, and eating dog food

A session at Fossetcon 2014

Friday 12th September, 2014

2:40pm to 3:20pm (EST)

For Red Hat, Open Source is not just a license, but a business strategy and a core value. This talk will discuss 3 aspects of that strategy and value

1) What happens when a customer brings patches to Red Hat?

2) What does Red Hat do with software that we purchase?

3) How does Red Hat use it's own (or other) Open Source software?

This talk will flesh out some of the realities of being the world's largest open source company by looking behind the scenes a bit at our interaction with the community on various fronts. I will review how we handle customer submitted code, how we interact with (or create) open source communities and some of the challenges of walking the open source talk.
