SXSW 2019

Standards and Open Source Collaboration Workshop


Much of today’s work on networking crosses the boundaries of organizations that specify or build the technology. Dependencies exist between open source components, standards and implementations being developed in parallel by different organizations. How can we increase the understanding of what is happening in different places, improve communication, and work better together across the ecosystem? This workshop is designed to help collaboration across the development ecosystem. Format is a 'mini-summit' and requires active audience participation. The first part is about collaboration, drawing maps of dependencies, issues and working methods. The second part is designed to allow information sharing about key ongoing projects, and brainstorming ways to use learned best practices elsewhere.
