Be sure to attend this panel, which discusses how OSS fits into the company strategy, the role of the Open Source Program Office (OSPO) and lessons learned. As OSPO leaders, we often get questions on how to convince the company leadership, how to work with legal, which organizations to join and why, etc. This is a practical ask-me-anything panel to inspire and influence companies who do not yet have an OSPO or wanting are thinking of starting one.
