Our mission here at Tidelift is to make open source work better for everyone. One big area of focus for us is finding ways we can help those of you whose day jobs are writing applications using open source components.
Over the past year, we’ve talked to a lot of folks like you, and we’ve learned more about where the joy and the pain come from when using open source packages in professional settings.
We’ve collected some of the most important things we learned into a report we call the definitive guide to professional open source.
Here are a few key things it covers:
The 3 key hidden costs of open source that most people never take into consideration
The best way to assess all of the open source dependencies your organization currently uses
The security, maintenance, and licensing risks that organizations need to have covered
How to develop a pragmatic professional open source methodology that works, while avoiding unnecessary and painful bureaucracy
The new version is available now.
