In this episode, open source guru Kris Buytaert discusses open source ecosystems, the benefits of collaboration, and the shifts towards proprietary models in certain tools.
We explore OpenTofu as a reaction to Terraform, ponder whether an “Ansible of IaC” will emerge, and delve into the deeper meaning of licenses, ecosystems, and governance models—emphasizing that “one open source is not equal to another.”
Join us in the exploration of the hallmarks of healthy open source and what lies beyond licenses as we assess community integrity.
Kris Buytaert is a long time Linux and Open Source Consultant. He's one of instigators of the devops movement, currently working for o11y.eu / @inuits.
He is frequently speaking at, or organizing different international conferences and has written about the same subjects in different Books, Papers and Articles.
He spends most of his time working on bridging the gap between developers and operations with a strong focus on High Availability, Scalability, Virtualization, and Large Infrastructure Management projects. Hence, he is trying to build infrastructures that can survive the 10th-floor test—better known today as the cloud—while actively promoting the DevOps idea.
