Today's Under the Hood of Developer Marketing podcast episode is about Open Source.
And who is better to talk about it than an industry all-star panel!

This episode is part of our MasterTips series, which includes tips from industry leaders.
It is a panel discussion from the Future Developer Summit, an exclusive event for developer marketing industry leaders.

The discussion focuses on Open Source software and contributions, from the following industry all-stars:

  • Chris DiBona, Director of Open Source at Google,
  • Nithya Ruff, Executive Director of OSPO at Comcast,
  • Stormy Peters, Director of Open Source Office at Microsoft
  • And the panel moderator: Sam Ramji, CTO at DataStax

Some of the topics they discussed are:

  • How does your company decide when to contribute to Open Source?
  • Are there projects from hobbyists that drive major company contributions?
  • How can we open up Open Source?
  • Should we include non-developers in Open Source for content and use-cases?
  • What job title will help you be more successful in OSPO? Do you really need a title?

All these questions answered in the latest Under the Hood of Developer Marketing episode.
