Fully embracing Open Source Software means to go beyond simply using it – it means to become an active member of the Open Source community. But how do you get there as a company with thousands of employees? The folks at Daimler decided that if they are going to take Open Source seriously, this needs to become deeply ingrained in the company’s “DNA”, away from a strict “we develop our own code” attitude. This is why they created the Daimler FOSS Manifesto. It is a set of guidelines and core values which sends the employees on their Open Source mission, knowing well that they are fully supported by the company. It is now a key pillar in how Daimler intends to become part of the Open Source movement, and – in the spirit of Open Source – this talk wants to share it with you. Wolfgang will present the Daimler FOSS Manifesto and the therein contained principles. Attendees will learn how these principles can modernize and transform an IT organization to drive forward a cultural change towards Open Source which will profoundly impact the way in which software is developed at corporate level.
