Open source has come a long way in the last 20 years and has had many shifts along the way, from altruistically-guided developers to commercial entities looking to profit or capitalize on the OSS model; from a concept of shared innovation and collaboration to a go-to-market (GTM) method for rapid awareness, engagement, and adoption for commercial benefit; from a world where the code ran on a box under your desk (with limited scale and reach) to one where it runs across global data centers and public clouds (unlimited in scale and reach); from a time where merit was defined by code to one where the lines have blurred on what actually constitutes a meritocracy.

With the rise of the developer and the shift of community and interest going to foundations and VCs, there are many strong voices and debates in the industry on what it means to be a good open source citizen, the role of licenses in GTM strategy and what’s “fair” in communities and commercialization. Featuring Zaheda Bhorat, Matt Asay, VM Brasseur, Matt Wilson, Adam Jacob, and Tiffany Farriss, the panel airs some of the strongest opinions on Twitter and was a lively discussion on what it takes to keep open source open and where the panelists see open source heading over the next 20 years.
