FOSSMeet’24, an event uniting open-source enthusiasts, developers, and innovators from around the world, is fast approaching. This February, FOSSMeet’24 promises an exhilarating gathering featuring a diverse array of workshops, lectures, and interactive programs. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the latest trends, technologies, and best practices in the world of open source.
Our call for proposals is wide open, inviting a broad spectrum of content formats: lectures, demos, tutorials, workshops, and discussions. We have slots for both experienced professionals (45-minute sessions) and bright student minds (15-minute talks).
But this isn’t your run-of-the-mill event; it’s where innovation intersects with inspiration. We’re not just looking for speakers; we’re on the hunt for visionaries. If you’ve got a fresh take on open source or a unique viewpoint, we want to hear your story.
While we applaud your creative flair, let’s ensure it orbits within the open-source universe. Proposals should revolve around open-source software, development, or related fields. While we value diversity, your topic should connect with the audience. Aim for the sweet spot—engaging yet comprehensible, unique but not excessively obscure. And here’s the deal: We won’t be counting upvotes in our selection process.
Join us at FOSSMeet’24, where innovation, inspiration, and open-source excellence converge. We eagerly await your proposals!
Open Source Entrepreneurship - Balancing free software and business models
This talk will give a perspective on commercializing open-source software with an introduction to various types of business models that open-source startups typically follow, why a startup might choose to go open-source (open-sourcing as a GTM model vs a product strategy), the challenges and pitfalls startups in open-source might face, etc
While commercializing open-source can sound controversial, this talk introduces the concept of making open source a sustainable model through financial incentives to all stakeholders and leaves it to the audience to form their own view on the topic.
