BigCo Open Source consulting
For the past year I've been doing some major Open Source strategy consulting for a global BigCo. It has been (and still is) a fascinating and extremely fulfilling experience.
My focus hasn't been on implementing a software project but on authoring an internal Open Source strategy whitepaper and establishing things like an Open Source policy and Open Source guidance or setting up an Open Source internal community within said BigCo.
Seeing the growing interest for Open Source within the corporation gives me some real satisfaction and in a way it shows that jumping into the - then - icy cold Open Source business "water" back in 2000 was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Another blog post - I'm sure this is just a fad.
