Historically, source code has been kept strictly behind company walls. Open source now enables companies and startups to build a new collaborative model that boosts the product development and creates complete new business models for these companies. Even more, with open source it is now possible to build up companies without the classical VC model and bootstrap the company to a decent size. One example of open source which makes this model possible is Kubernetes with the consistent computing infrastructure across clouds.

This session demonstrates the power of open source and how you can use open source software to build a bootstrapped product company.
