Open source software has been a hot topic over the last couple of years, especially with big shots like Google, Amazon and Facebook joining the game. But what does the future hold for it and what role will OSS play in the software ecosystem?

Come join Devhub, in association with Collision Conference, to hear industry experts talk about how open source affects their jobs, and discuss how they think it will evolve.

We will be giving away tickets to Collision Conference leading-up to the event, and during the event. Stay tuned!
