Collaborating across open source software projects

Tuesday, 28 May 2024 @ 14:00 - 14:45

Many OSS projects are individual programs or tools which address a section of a process or value chain (a survey tool, a modeling application, a security component, etc.). Unfortunately, building the pricing and business models can feel like a contortionists act and larger customer segments can be too distant in the value chain.

The topic of this workshop is how can several open source projects work together to serve one value or process chains, creating more natural pricing models and access to new markets. First, is that a good idea? When is it a good idea? If they do join forces… then how structurally should they? How do projects maintain autonomy, and what functions should be centralized? What successful examples can we find?
