GeoServer : Location Intelligence Presentation
This page last changed on Dec 11, 2013 by jive.
Hey, just finished up a panel and a presentation at Location Intelligence.
Wanted to post my slides here for all to reuse. These are available under a Creative Commons attribution license, please reuse them to convince others to use open source.
I gave a 12 minute presentation with them, mostly honing in on one point. I lost my notes, but I'll try to recreate:
The rest of the slides are fairly self explanatory, I used them to just drive home the fact that your investment pays dividents. Slide shows there's only one way to interact with closed source, and the next slide shows how there's an ecosystem of interaction, where people give differently and get different things out of their involvement with open source. If anyone's really interested I can write up each of the individual examples. Then in the next slide it contrasts how things are different when it comes time to upgrade, with proprietary software they charge you again the next year, even though what you put in was what enabled them to grow their code base. In open source the energy you put in to the community pot increases the strength even more than just you did, and you can reap the rewards from everyone else a couple years down the line. It concludes with listed text points, about the importance of really becoming a part of the community, not just using the software and thinking it's a cure all.
Feel free to take the core slides out and just use them as pieces in other presentations. The point can be made much more quickly than I did, I just wanted to really drive it home.
