Open Source and the People Who Love It (Ep. 92)

January 25, 2018 Michael Coté

Open source has become one of the most popular - if not the most popular? - ways of producing and maintaining software. What are the advantages for developers, and how should organizations evaluate the long term viability of open source projects? We discuss these topics, plus a little bit of a look back at the history of commercialized open source in this episode. As always, we also discuss the news like Google undersea cables, Amazon HQ2, easier machine learning, and more.
