It has been confirmed just a few hours ago. Open source guru Matt Asay will be giving the inaugural keynote speech at the Openbravo Get Together event in Barcelona, Spain, which will take place from October 26th to 28th. His presentation ‘Community Capitalism: The Art of Corporate Involvement in Open Source Communities’ will take place on Saturday the 27th at 10:00 a.m. The keynote will identify the most successful mechanisms that commercial open source vendors and community open source projects have found to improve the depth and breadth of their communities, as well as how end users can derive significant benefits from participating in and contributing to relevant open source communities.
Matt Asay has ten years’ operational experience working with commercial open source technology, and regularly speaks and publishes on emerging open source business strategies and opportunities. He is considered one of the industry’s leading open source business strategists and is a prolific blogger on open source, where he is a regular contributor to ZDNet and CNET. Asay co-founded Novell's Linux Business Office in 2002 and was an early agitator and architect for the company's shift to open source. He is currently the VP Business Development of open source content management vendor Alfresco, a board member at Open Source Initiative and advisor of several leading open source vendors.
