You may be thinking: 'Wait a second all my source code is shared right here. Of course it's open!'

Open Source is powered by a simple function: Converting a small percentage of users into contributors. In this talk we'll discuss how almost every Managed Service is developed and operated in such a way that prevents contributions from users. Left unchecked, the rapid adoption of Services would cause Open Source to shrivel.

Luckily there's a way we can change this. Let's take a look at how we can combine several existing DevOps, SRE and deployment principles to function as a true Open Source contribution model for Software as a Service.
