Year in Review: Open Source at Microsoft

Bill Hilf, General Manager of Platform Strategy, Microsoft Corporation

Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 9:15am - 9:30am
Location: Portland Ballroom

Since OSCON 2006, much has changed in how and where Microsoft has participated with the open source community. We've seen tremendous technical partnerships grow out of the Open Source Software Lab, increased project hosting on Codeplex, and community excitement around the work of the Live Labs team. This talk will review the past year at Microsoft and how open source is changing the way Microsoft does business.
