Spend enough time in strategy meetings, and you’re bound to hear “…and create a consortium to host our new open source project!” delivered to resounding applause, by people who have never done anything of the sort, and can’t tell if it’s a good or bad idea. Linger too long in those same strategy meetings, and you’ll be assigned responsibility for it.

Brian Warner will give an overview of the process he uses within Samsung to help well-intentioned but inexperienced teams decide whether initiating an open source consortium is truly the best option. He will also discuss common topics he covers to bring them up to speed on open source participation, as well as the information he collects from them.
