The Color of Open Source Money – Are some open source business models more acceptable than others?
Eero Teerikorpi – Continuent

The color of open source money is a curious case! There are those organizations that make money from open source technologies, with or without making contributions back to the software itself. There also are commercial open source software vendors, who do add value to the underlying open source technology by enhancing the solution and providing support for it. And then there are commercial software vendors who extend the capability of the open source solution with proprietary solutions. And, last but not least, some cloud providers’ business model involves building SaaS solutions based on free open source technology. Some of the above business models are deemed to be more acceptable by the open source community than others.

Vivid Cortex

Bringing DevOps To The Database
Baron Schwartz – VividCortex

Applying DevOps principles and practices to the database can make software development processes faster, better and cheaper. Yet most companies do not include their databases in their DevOps initiatives because they face a variety of challenges to make it work.

Why is it hard to apply DevOps to databases? How can we get better at it? This talk addresses those questions (and more) by exploring the real-life stories of teams that successfully changed their entrenched culture, workflows, and tooling – and others who tried.
