About the talk

RailsConf 2019 - The Unreasonable Struggle of Commercializing Open Source by Justin Collins


With at least $55 billion in open source-related acquisitions in 2018, you might think we finally figured out how to fund and monetize open source software. Unfortunately, we have only reached an awkward stage of growing pains! With conflicting goals, people are struggling to turn their OSS work into revenue while not losing the powerful open source effects which made the software successful in the first place.

From the perspective of someone who has gone through the pain of commercializing open source, let’s take a deeper look at the unexpected challenges and potential solutions.
