All Things Open is a conference that explores open source, open tech, and the open web in the enterprise.

Open Source is a hot topic. Yes, open source allows for a shorter time to market and reduced costs, but the reality is if your open source doesn’t work, you don’t either. We’ve previously discussed the lack of support surrounding open source, so at All Things Open, we’ll venture in-depth on this topic. Join Rod Cope in this session and he’ll give you all the facts behind the myths that are open source.


  • Presenter: Rod Cope
  • Title: Open source support: The facts behind the myth

Rod Cope, the CTO of Rogue Wave, is a certified expert of all things open source. As open source software becomes more popular due to its help for reduced time to market, and reduced costs, it becomes even more important to understand the complete risks and facts of open source.

Knowing these facts, and how they differ from the myth, will allow you to understand how to use OSS safely and successfully. Rod will explain the real costs of using “free” open source code, and which packages see the most requests for support.

We will educate you on the statistics, the questions, and the realities of using OSS in the enterprise.
