In this talk, I’ll discuss concrete steps your company can take to become a good citizen in various open source communities. I’ll also talk about strategies to influence upper management and show them that it’s in their best interest to become more involved with open source. Last but not least, I’ll share some of my experiences with companies I’ve worked for and how I was able to get them to become more involved with free and open source software.
