There are many different views on how, when and to what extent OpenSource projects should involve end users. End users themselves are struggling to figure out how to get involved in and at what level. They often ask: How much do we need to invest? What types of resources? When in project’s life cycle? Unfortunately because the ubiquity of open source as an innovation model is so new many developers, vendors and end-users have gravitated around a set of beliefs and experiences that may or may not be accurate or useful. We’ve all heard “OSS comes from volunteers developing in a garage” or “vendors are evil.” In this session, led by Neela Jacques, Executive Director of OpenDaylight Project, we will together look at a series of myths that all of us hear often and look at learnings from OpenSource Projects and users that seem to have gotten this right.
