Open Source Ecosystem Evolution: OpenStack and Kubernetes models

The old open source model was all about offering alternatives to the proprietary software, but this model is evolving and companies are seeing a lot of potential in Open Source and starting to make great investments, also there are companies that went from fighting it to embrace it. This is causing a clear reaction in the ecosystem, with a new wave of developers, companies and business models that are altering the status quo. 

In order to allow businesses to have an influence without monopolizing the projects, the Apache Software Foundation introduced a new way for open source and corporations to interact: companies could be represented in the foundation by individual participants. This approach has become the inspiration for running open source projects and is used today by Openstack and Kubernetes projects.

This talk pretends to analyze the Open Source ecosystem history and to compare the different evolutions using the Openstack and Kubernetes Open Source models as an example.
