Open Source Drives Companies to Change Hiring and Development


Open source today is not just about the products and technologies that companies use, but rather a whole rainbow of adjustments that have penetrated the corporate culture beyond the engineering department.

I heard some of the best examples of this during a discussion for data industry leaders at the forefront of open source software innovation this summer. The event was co-hosted by EnterpriseDB (EDB) and MIT Technology Review. We shared our experiences of data transformation with Postgres, NoSQL, and other solutions, and really learned a lot from each other.

These discussions have been part of a series that culminates at Postgres Vision on October 11-13 in San Francisco. Steve Wozniak, Jim Zemlin of The Linux Foundation, and industry and government leaders will be there to talk about the future of open source.
