Depending heavily on Open Source for the software we rely on has been the norm in tech companies for a few years now, but nevertheless it can be a challenge to make Open Source contributions a priority in our organizations.

At Spotify we love Open Source, but giving Open Source contributions the place they deserve within our tech organization has been difficult at times. In this talk we tell you all about what we have done to facilitate both contributing to upstream projects and releasing some significant internal infrastructure technology as Open Source.

This talk will give both practical tips when it comes to licensing, legal and patent issues and talk about changing engineering culture away from in house development towards a more open process. We will also give details on how we went about creating the Open Source release of Nameless, a service discovery system we built.
