Organizational open source is full of powerful potential and existential dangers. Plotting a path through the landscape is often as challenging as creating the software systems themselves. Like any adventure, there are levels of experience and sophistication, physics of how things work, actions and reactions, and a plot. In this talk we look at how you can build an open source adventure for your organization that is structured and intentional. Jeff presents an open source engagement model that covers the spectrum from fear of the unknown to mastery of the art and science, and a set of actions and activities you can use to develop your story. Attendees are encouraged to add their own twists, characters, and events to create their own storyline. In the end, you should have a great story and a solid basis for evolving your organization’s open source program.
