Most organizations with open source programs (also known as OSPOs) consider them business-critical to the success of their engineering or product teams, according to the 2020 open source programs survey conducted by The New Stack and The Linux Foundation’s TODO Group. In this talk, Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, and Hilary Carter, VP of research at The Linux Foundation, will release for the first time the brand new results of the TODO Group’s 2021 survey and present top takeaways for how companies, governments and universities are building OSPOs today to best harness open source culture and best practices. What does the research say about open source programs? Which organizations are creating them and how are they approaching it? What are the advantages and challenges? And what tools and best practices should teams adopt to help advance open source communities as well as their own projects or commercial products?
