I just got a very welcome e-mail – an acceptance for my talk at OSCON in Portland this July. I’ll be speaking on Thursday morning, on this subject:
Most open source start-ups have some sort of lock on the code – dual licensing, contributor agreements, “open core” add-ons and more. But is it possible to start a profitable company without any of those – with just skilled people delivering expert service and developing new code in the community? I don’t just think it’s possible – I’m doing it!
All things being equal I’ll be planning another ForgeRock party while I’m there – watch this space for details!
