Help Drive Open Source Adoption by Taking a Quick Survey

We have teamed up with Black Duck Software, North Bridge Venture Partners451 Research and over  20 other collaborating organizations to introduce the 2012 Future of Open Source Survey – the results to be revealed on May 21st at Computerworld’s Open Source Business Conference (OSBC). 

This survey follows on the heels of a very successful five year survey that has sparked important discussions around open source adoption.  The survey is supported by working together to address broad industry initiatives that go beyond the scope of any one group.  Take the survey here to voice your opinion and hear leading ideas around:

·         Hot technologies - such as mobile and cloud - and geographic growth areas for OSS adoption
·         Why companies engage directly and strategically with OSS communities
·         Industry-specific trends such as the formation of super-communities - communities of communities - dominating the next phase of OSS adoption
·         Top up and coming open source companies and projects

The survey results will be available on May 21st to all respondents and by following discussion on Twitter @FutureofOSS and #FutureOSS.  Past survey results are available for viewing on the Future of Open Source Forum.

As an added incentive, all survey respondents will receive 20% off their pass to OSBC!
