Event description

Description

Join us for an exciting session where we will share how open source can help you build and scale your fast growing company. Some of the questions we will discuss are: Is there a role for open source in your information technology strategy? What is the right way to engage with open source technology? Should you "make or buy", when we’re talking technology? How can you make the right technology decisions to focus on what’s critical for growth? Is there anything in open source, beyond “software”, that will help you build and grow your company?

This event is part of the Technology Track at Boston Startup Week.
