Silona Bonewald, the ED of IEEE SA OPEN, will join us to talk about how and why to use open source platforms in Open Source Program Offices. While it is important for communities to understand how Open Source works, it is imperative for those communities to drink their own wine and put themselves in the perspective of their community. Most proprietary tools can’t support the customization needed, but Open Source has a vast amount of tools that can easily be tailored and upgraded for all to benefit from.  It is dangerous to integrate with proprietary tools as often Companies want to hinder centralization outside of their platform.   With a 100% Open Source platform, the community has control.
