Thursday Lunch Speaker Series

Day: Thursday, March 26, 2015
Time: 1200-1245
Room: Parisian

In this talk, Google's Chris DiBona talks about the direction that Open Source has taken over the last few years, where it has been succeeding, where it has failed and how the IETF has impacted adoption. As part of this, he talked about the spread of Android and Chromium codebases and what it has meant for the industry. Questions were answered! What do open standards mean without open source? What does open source switches and routers mean for the future of the internet? SDN is source software? Is open daylight a thing?
