Trace the history of human innovation from the dark ages to the modern world, and learn how open development will take us to the next era.
Open source powers everything from drones to Mars landers. Justin Reock, who lives and breathes OSS, shares his vision on what open source truly is, what it can be, and how we all participate in this larger community. By tracing the history of human innovation from the dark ages to the modern world, and mixing Ulysses, Stallman, and Heinlein with his own views, Justin examines the secret life of free software to answer: How do we power the cool things we want and build faster, better, free software? The Holodeck awaits. (Keynote at Zendcon 2017, PHP.RUHR 2017, and GeekOut 2019. Video available here: https://vimeo.com/363997313)
