Wildest Dreams of Making Profit on Open Source

At Rails World 2023, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Open Source is amazing—for decades, it’s been the driver of tech industry creativity and growth. But as long as our food, devices, and homes are not similarly open and free, this creativity needs to be rewarded monetarily, too.

Commercialized open source has effectively supported authors while also maintaining the benefits that open principles have on the industry. By obtaining an adequate share of the value we create, we’ll be able to work on industry-changing projects we’re passionate about for years to come.

Yet, achieving success in this domain is not without its challenges. We must be willing to learn, experiment, and overcome obstacles along the way. In this talk, I will unveil my insights on navigating this journey, harnessing the power of Rails at every stage.
