The quantity and quality of career resources has grown substantially in recent years, from company reviews to salary data and from social profiles to connections. Dice has learned that to remain a top destination for the technology professional, it must leverage big data and open source technologies to deliver unique value. Through aggressive investments in data science, Dice has transformed massive collections of tech résumés, profiles, job postings, and surveys into a vast array of meaningful insights such as market trends, salary predictions, skill mapping, and career pathing to name just a few. But with an aging environment, Dice looked to open source to accelerate time to market and enable continual innovation.

Richard Maldonado shares experiences and drivers behind Dice’s move to open source, reviews trends happening in the open source job market, and demonstrates how to leverage the Dice tech community and ecosystem to gain visibility for the open source projects that are important to you.

This session is sponsored by Dice.
