The Schumpeterian sensibility of our age is that incumbents get disrupted. So when one asserts that open source has won, the logical follow-up questions are: What will disrupt the incumbent? What comes next? Robert Lefkowitz explains why the answer is the democratization of software.
Robert explores the changes that will disrupt open source in the near future, rendering it less important if not completely obsolete, and traces open source’s central evolution away from the ability to change the source code to the ability to change the running code. Along the way, Robert also discusses how to let users safely modify your website, database, libraries, and APIs. You’ll learn how to engage nondevelopers and less-committed developers in the development and deployment process, making your software more accessible to contributors.
Robert “r0ml” Lefkowitz is the chief architect for software at Warby Parker. Previously, Robert was a software architect in the insurance, telecommunications, and finance industries. He is also a distinguished engineer of the ACM.
