The Open (Source) for Business: How to Become Open Source Fluent
If you want to understand and speak the open source lingo fluently, then Heather Meeker’s latest The Open (Source) for Business is your resource. It unassumingly starts by explaining the basics of software. Then, helpfully dives into open source basics and related intellectual property issues. And, before you know it, you will find yourself enjoying what Meeker does best: skillfully dissecting and organizing much more advanced open sources concepts and problems in the context of corporate merger and acquisitions, litigation, and government regulations.
Don’t be surprised if you end up loving the book just a little too much (despite the notoriously unsexy subject matter)! Meeker’s well-written, practical, and approachable book is an opportunity to re-discover your nerdy virtues as you become proficient in open source concepts. At the end of this enjoyable ride, anticipating, navigating, and addressing open source issues will be one of many benefits obtained from reading this book.
