Open source programs (also known as OSPOs) are now largely driven by engineering teams instead of attorneys — and created to refine engineering practices and attract developer talent, according to the 2019 open source program survey conducted by The New Stack, The Linux Foundation’s TODO Group, and VMware. Open source license compliance has long served as a reason for companies to start formal open source programs. But that’s changing as automated tools improve code scanning and compliance.

In this talk, Alex Williams, Founder and Publisher of The New Stack, will release for the first time the brand new results of the TODO Group’s 2020 survey and present top takeaways for how companies are building OSPOs today to best harness open source culture and best practices.

What does the research say about open source programs? Which companies and industries are creating them and how are they approaching it? What are the advantages and challenges? And what best practices should companies follow to help advance open source communities as well as their own commercial products? We'll use data to help answer these questions.
