Peanut Butter and Chocolate - Bringing together Government and Open Source - Silona Bonewald, IEEE SA OPEN

We will talk about the tools and techniques we have been using to merging two cultures that often can be in conflict. Though just like Peanut Butter and Chocolate - together they can create something better and more powerful than alone. The public sector loves the transparency, speed, and effectiveness of open source processes. But the public sector also needs standards, diversity, inclusion, open governance, and safety/privacy to be able to use these open source tools fairly and effectively. They need this even more so to be able to freely participate and fund these communities. For example, if an open-source project is actually governed by a single corporate entity they have to worry about anti-trust issues. Or if a project is mostly overseas, they have to be concerned about export control issues. We are focused on raising the maturity level of open source so that government entities and their OSPOs can both use and fund projects safely and legally. Let's open a conversation and start a checklist!
