Building a business and growing a community around an open source project involved lots of trade-offs. How do you position your product offering and your community commons relative to competitors? What is the value proposition for product customers? Should you put more effort into growing a user community or satisfying early customers?

In this talk, Dave will take you through some of the trade-offs involved in business models based on open source software, and how to craft a community strategy that supports your company and product goals.
