Open Source & OVH

A presentation at Rencontres Régionales du Logiciel Libre in in Nantes, France by Horacio Gonzalez

Today almost every company is using lots and lots of open source software, open source has won... Has it really?

While companies makes lots of money with products and service based on open source software, many companies don't contribute back neither code nor money, not even community support, and many open source contributor strive to get a decent living or burn out.

In this talk I'm talking of OVH's approach to open source. We love Open source, we build on open source, and we contribute!

Taking four different projects, I am going to explain the different ways to contribute to Open Source, how we do it at OVH, and how your company could also do it!
