Open Source with Opengear

  • 30 minute talk

Opengear builds products which derive a lot of their functionality from Open Source software projects.
This talk will cover Opengear’s early (2005) experience with Open Source Hardware, the pivot we made to
our current product line, how we use Open Source software in our devices, and how that works
(and what challenges it presents) with the different types of customers we've had as the company has grown.
