Time : 12.30 pm CST

The open-source ecosystem has long been heralded as a bastion of innovation and collaboration, driving some of the world’s most impactful software initiatives. However, in recent years, this sphere has encountered a series of challenges that have prompted a reevaluation of its sustainability and future trajectory.

One of the most glaring issues facing open source projects is the lack of basic funding necessary for their sustenance, even though many of these initiatives are among the largest and most promising in the software landscape. This dearth of financial support has left project maintainers under immense stress, caused start-ups to reconsider the open-source model, and left organizations that rely on open-source tools scrambling for alternatives.
