Fully embracing Open Source Software means to go beyond simply using it – it means to become an active member of the Open Source community. But how do we get there as a big automotive company? At Daimler, we decided that if we are going to take Open Source seriously, this needs to become deeply ingrained in the company’s “DNA”, away from a strict “we develop our own code” attitude.
This is why we created the Daimler FOSS Manifesto. It is a set of guidelines and core values which sends our employees on their Open Source mission, knowing well that they are fully supported by the company. It is now a key pillar in how we become part of the Open Source movement, and – in the spirit of Open Source – we would like to share it with you.
In this talk, I will present our Daimler FOSS Manifesto and the therein contained principles. Attendees will learn how these principles can modernize and transform an IT organization to drive forward a cultural change towards Open Source which will profoundly impact the way in which software is developed at corporate level.
This talk is
- for a general audience with interest in Open Source philosophy and community
- if you are interested in the transformation process of a company where a change of mindset is required
- if you are struggling or want to pick up speed in the acceptance of the Open Source way in your own organization
