The Investor's Case for Open Source Startups
Moderated by Salil Deshpande (@salil)
Managing Director, Bain Capital Ventures
Open is for winners. In this panel, we'll invite leaders from the venture and angel communities to discuss why open source should be on the mind of every investor, and share success stories from their own portfolios.
Meet the Rainmakers: Towards a Vision of an Open Cloud
Moderated by Christian Perry (@aporya)
Cloud computing has revolutionized the modern internet — and the world of startups — as we know it. This panel critically examines the shortcomings of proprietary cloud computing, inviting an all-star, all-founder panel to share an alternative vision: that of an Open Cloud powered by an interoperable stack of free and open standards.
The Art and Science of Community Development
Moderated by Michael Gold (@michaelgold)
Open source startups rise and fall on the strength of their developer communities. This panel explores the vital role that communities play in making open source startups successful, looking at how the best companies build, manage, and engage with them.
