Come listen to an interactive discussion with a panel of experts from Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions. This session will begin with a short primer on the basics of open source, then address topics such as: the role of community development in open source technologies, the factors at play in determining the appropriate open source license, the challenges faced by a company like Red Hat of developing an open source business model around a freely available product, and the challenges many proprietary companies face of incorporating open source technology into their proprietary business model.
