The rise of software development forges like GitHub has dramatically reduced friction to create and run open source projects. In this context, what is the role of Foundations today, in the wider open source ecosystem? In this talk, Thierry Carrez, General Manager at the Open Infrastructure Foundation and vice-chair of the Open Source Initiative, will share his vision on this topic.
