Open source has been a thing for over two decades now, and it's survived a number of growing pains and transitions. It began with individual programmers, who were looking greater freedom and flexibility in lieu of the emerging software industry. Over time major IT vendor companies (IBM, Oracle, others) and then the hyper-scale platform companies (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) joined in. Most recently, enterprise companies have started to 're-think' their relationship to OS software and are leaning in smartly. Join this session to learn more about the "Fourth Wave" of OS evolution, the arrival of 'Open Data Sets' and the CDLA, and what's driving leading companies like Capital One, WalMart, and Comcast to not just consume - but actively contribute to and participate in OS. The only way to sustain Open Source is through active contributions.
