The Amazon Effect on Open Source Cloud Business Models

In order for open source to continue to thrive, there needs to be some ability for the creators to profit from their projects - which is where the freemium model stands right now. However, it seems we are quickly seeing the “Amazon Effect” take hold. In essence, a huge enterprise finds an open source project it likes, commits a little code, and then packages and sells it as a their service. How will open source survive in the long run if only the big players benefit from the open source community’s hard work?

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will hear experts talk about the effect Amazon is having on the open source market and how we can work together to make open source better and prevent this trend from continuing.
