Working for a company whose culture and growth emerges from a shared passion for open source, is my dream job and I am fortunate enough to do it at Bocoup.
Open source fuels engineers’ professional and personal development as well as our client work. By doing so, we’ve created a sustainable environment that is driven by purpose. In this talk, I will share some of the principles we’ve adopted and how we managed to make it work. Most importantly, I’ll explain why building a company with open source at heart is better for the team, the clients, and the open source community.
