    Open source has gone from experimental to front and center at many organizations, extending throughout IT from application development to infrastructure and cloud architectures. But implementing open source technologies can be challenging, both technically and financially. This one-day event will explore how the open movement is changing the way businesses use technology and how IT professionals work with it.

    We'll discuss the many of the things that business and technical teams will face as they look towards open source options, including:
    • Benefits of open source products
    • Challenges of open source products and ecosystems
    • Contributing to open source for non-developers
    • Finding the right open source platform to meet your needs
    • Promoting open source development within your organization
    • Learning some open source tools with hands-on session options

    The Summit, moderated by Eric Wright, will feature real-world perspective from expert technologists who have been involved in creating and consuming open source platforms, with a strong focus on enabling attendees to come away with a plan on how to succeed in embracing open source as a powerful tool in their IT portfolios.
