Beyond Doing Business--The Continuing Importance of Community Development
Bdale Garbee, Linux CTO, Hewlett Packard

Track: Keynote
Date: Thursday, July 29
Time: 9:40am - 10:00am
Location: Oregon Ballroom


The Debian project is a very successful example of the community development model applied to Free Software. Starting with some of the key decisions in project history that enabled success, Garbee applies his unique experience to explore how communities of developers and users working together accomplish amazing things. His examples range from building amateur satellites and breaking the SPECfp2000 record, to improving the technology literacy of hundreds of thousands of students and ordinary citizens in Spain and beyond.
