Open Source Compliance at Twitter

Lessons from the Twitter Open Source Office

In 2011, Twitter embarked on creating an open source office. Since there's no real book out there when it comes to starting an open source office, we have a lot of interesting/hilarious lessons and stories to tell about the experience.

From how we handle open source compliance issues to starting an open data program to our attitudes towards open source, there's lessons to share. In particular, we will share our views on:

  • open source licenses: strong copyleft versus weak copyleft
  • scalable open source policies for engineers
  • open source foundations vs. github
  • practical open data
