Live Q&A: Building an OSPO

An open-source program office (OSPO) is the center of gravity for an organization’s open-source operations and structure. This can include training developers, ensuring legal compliance, engaging with and building communities, and defining policies that govern code usage, distribution, selection, auditing, and more. However, there is no broad template for building an open-source program that applies across all industries, regions, or even sizes [1] , and this issue, can make its creation a challenge.

During this Q&A session, we aim to bring some ideas on how organizations can start an OSPO journey as well as bringing an open conversation on new ways to work together as a community, to enhance the OSPO movement and pave the path to those emerging open source initiatives within organizations.
