Panel Discussion: Challenges, Benefits and Fun of Open Source Contributions - Kenichi Omichi, Naoya Horiguchi, Ghanshyam Mann, Akihiro Motoki, Yuiko Mori & Shu Muto; NEC
Feedback form is now closed.
NEC has continually contributed to the Open Source ecosystem for over 20 years, and we are working together in many Open Source communities like Kubernetes, Linux, Hyperledger and OpenStack, etc.

In this panel discussion, we will gather Open Source contributors from different communities and discuss what are the hard challenges to contribute to Open Source and how to overcome those difficulties.

In addition, there are benefits from companies' viewpoints and fun from the developers' viewpoints. These factors motivate contributors well, so we will enjoy discussing them also in this panel discussion.
