Open Source collaboration is a team sport, comprised of different players with a diverse set of backgrounds. While the end goal is often the same, there can be competing options and routes to achieving those goals. So how do open source projects encourage collaboration, navigate conflicts, focus on the greater good, and instill the trust necessary to work as a team? OPNFV director Heather Kirksey will sit down with OpenStack executive Director Jonathan Bryce and former OPNFV TSC Chair Chris Price to highlight key examples and lessons learned from managing two of the most unique open source projects in market today: OPNFV and OpenStack. OPNFV focuses its work upstream by leveraging existing code from a variety of leading open source projects across compute, storage, and networking in order to build a common NFV reference platform for the industry. In this fireside chat, Jonathan Bryce and Chris Price will explore OpenStack’s approach to working upstream with OPNFV and vice versa, as well as among their own communities to maintain the sportsmanship necessary to advance the industry.
