Richard Lin explains why Huawei is transforming itself from a low-key, conservative software and hardware company to an open source one. In becoming a supporter of and collaborator with the open source software development community, Huawei has earned some hard-won knowledge about how to make this monumental shift while still keeping an enterprise not only running but growing. In the spirit of open source, Richard shares the challenges Huawei encountered and lessons it learned in establishing a developer community, contributing to open source, and creating an open API platform. Transitioning to an open source ecosystem has been the right move for Huawei. Let its story inspire other companies to make the leap.
This session is sponsored by Huawei.
