The Literate Programmer: Cargo Cult Open Source

Wes Chow | Cortico

ABOUT THE TALK

Wes Chow walks through a narrow slice of computing history and illustrates the problems that occur when practicing engineers don't learn the lessons of the past. Along the way, he examines incentives and business models, and argues how we as consumers can better align our behavior to make for a more robust open source ecosystem.
