Devtron's Open source Journey

I will talk about the roller-coaster ride of transitioning Devtron from a closed source platform to a completely open source contributing to the Indian FOSS ecosystem. I also will share my experience of working in the industry for around 15 years on different technologies and finally ending up with adopting OSS and building open source solutions that the world needs. I will share my learning’s of starting and growing OSS for people who want to start on this journey themselves.
The audience will learn about the challenges that an organization can face if moving from closed source to open source and how to deal with those challenges. The talk would also enlighten them with the advantages of open source and get started with open source contributions.
