Kitware co-founder Bill Hoffman will be at All Things Open 2017, which is taking place October 23 – 24 in Raleigh, NC. He’s presenting a talk titled ‘OPEN SOURCE/OPEN SCIENCE BUSINESS MODEL.’
Bill says, ‘In this talk I will discuss the successful story of Kitware’s open source business model. Starting with 5 founders, no venture capital, and one really great open source toolkit in 1998, the company has thrived for almost two decades. The slow growth model has resulted in a company of about 150 employees with three US offices and a French office. Our small but dedicated and growing team has had a disproportionate impact on global scientific computing, including the creation of the defacto standard C++ build system CMake. The talk will cover our business model and open source success stories.’
All Things Open is a two-day event that focuses on open source and the open web in the enterprise. The talks and workshops feature a diverse and unique line-up of some of the most well known experts in the world, as well as ‘new faces you’ll be hearing about for years into the future’.
