After the meteoric rise the Windows Platform using a proprietary development model in the 90's, in the past 20 years, Open Source and Open Standards proved to be very useful strategic options in the platform game. In this talk I will share my personal experiences in this area about the use of open source and open standards in platforms I have helped create or grow: Sun Portal Server, Google Adwords, OpenSocial, HTML5, Google App Engine, Cloud Foundry, Microsoft Azure, and Docker. I will also cover platforms I have studied, and try to extract some useful lessons and principles that I hope can be useful to other practitioners.
