Most companies are consuming open source, but are now also hiring developers to work on open source projects that are the basis of their products. This makes sense, since having input to strategic direction in key projects is critical to innovation and business continuity. However, large organizations still struggle with cultural and procedural barriers to effective collaboration with these community projects. This panel features some of the best-known experts in the open source community discussing how you attract key open source developers to your organization, as well as 'grow' new contributors internally through adjustments to your culture and processes. The panel is moderated by Guy Martin (Senior Open Source Strategist, Samsung), with Jono Bacon (Senior Director of Community, XPRIZE), Karsten Wade (CentOS Engineering Manager, Red Hat), Karl Fogel (Community Author, Developer, Consultant) & Leslie Hawthorn (Community Manager, Elasticsearch).
