Just because you’re selling SaaS doesn’t mean you can’t adopt open source principles in your organization. We'll talk about how individuals and companies can open source their documentation, libraries, and ideas for the greater good of the community in a way that doesn’t mean giving it all away for free. Open source goes beyond software; it’s also an approach to the non-software aspects of your business. No matter what you’re shipping for profit, there are several aspects of your company that you can make public to increase transparency within your organization as well as outside of it.

Thoroughly enjoyed the talk. Made me properly think about how we do things at my work. Although due to the nature of the work we do we would not be able to embrace everything but certainly can in areas.

Well presented, particularly liked the transparency theme and the things you can do internally to have a more open culture. Interesting to hear about what worked well at Pagerduty and GitLab.

I liked to see a conference about open source. One point, I expected to see some "success stories" about companies who achieved to build a business model around an open source solution

Great talk, Amanda spoke very passionately which kept audience engaged (me at least). I believe most - if not all - people left the room convinced, good job!
