Open source projects can leverage standards and specifications to further drive market acceptance and end user adoption of the project. We will review how standards development can play a complementary role to open source code development, and how projects can structure and establish standards.

We will also review current examples as to how standards are being leveraged by open source projects, as well as how the Linux Foundation structures standards development efforts.
