New Models in Open Source - Rod Vagg, NodeSource

Open source history is divided into eras by the tools we use, there's a clear connection between the amount of friction in collaborating and the nature of the open source ecosystem that exists around it. Node.js is a child of the git and GitHub era of open source and is far more comfortable with inclusion, transparency and discussion than many of its open source predecessors. But Node.js is also on the forefront of something new. A radical openness is being adopted across the Node.js ecosystem and has also infected the Node core project. This is an openness that seeks to hand the reigns, and even ownership, to the individuals who invest their time to the project. Rod will explore the upsides and downsides of this new openness for individuals and companies and discuss what it might mean for the future of open source.
