Open Source isn't easy but the theory is, it's easier to write great code if we do it together.
Of course, as a boxer once said, everyone has a plan... and then they get punched in the face.

Trying to develop together amongst massive global corporations, often direct competitors, is challenging work. This talk is a down-in-the-trenches look at the good, the bad, and the ugly about how that really works.

Noah will walk through the experiences of building the AllSeen Alliance and EdgeX Foundry both at the tactical level and the strategic level. This talk will look at how funding is used, how marketing works (or not), how community is built, how development teams are sustained, and how IP - copyrights, trademarks, and patents - are addressed.

But it's not just about beginnings. Noah will discuss how AllSeen merged with OCF, how AllJoyn was left to die, and how EdgeX merged into LF Edge and the ramifications of all of this for the open source community writ large.
