But We’re Already Open Source! Why Would I Want to Bring My Code to Apache? – Nick Burch
Open Source – that’s just a tick box, right? No? Anyway, we’re open source, so that’s all we need, right? No? OK, so what’s this Apache thing, and why might we want to take our existing open source project to the Apache Software Foundation? And why might we not!
Join us as we look at several real world examples of where companies have chosen to contribute their existing open source code to the Apache Software Foundation. We’ll see the advantages they got from it, the problems they faced along the way, why they did it, and how it helped their business. We’ll also look briefly at where it may not be the right fit.
