Uber officially began its open source journey in 2015 when three passionate engineers decided to contribute Uber’s work back to the community. In only three years, Uber’s open source program has fostered several outstanding open source projects like Jaeger, deck.gl, and Pyro. Uber has also been contributing to existing open source projects such as Hadoop, Spark, and more. In this presentation, Brian Hsieh will share Uber’s open source journey, its program structure, open source best practices, and how Uber enables open innovation by fostering a healthy and collaborative open source culture. He will also discuss the challenges of leading an open source program in a hyper-growth global company and Uber’s long-term open source vision.
