Open source has come a long way in 30 years – and its success marks a new era for the overall OSS community. But success does not come without potential pitfalls. One of the greatest obstacles to project success isn’t the proprietary competition – it’s the lack of communication between large open source projects like OpenStack and Docker. Read more

For example, there are features such as identity management to monitor who has access to content, and data encryption to safeguard information while it’s at rest or in transit. Furthermore, open-source cloud software is peer-reviewed by community participants, leading to continuous improvements in the quality of security features and mechanisms. This community also monitors and rapidly discloses vulnerabilities and issues, and provides security updates to address them. Read more

What does an adult look like in an open source community?

You're no longer "just an adult." You're now trusted and looked to for opinions on how the community should grow. You're a community elder. You embody the history. You keep the history.
