Organizations of all shapes and sizes face pressure to increase the pace at which they work, and open source software contributes to acceleration. Yet a huge proportion of the systems used in most industries are still based upon closed source. In this session you’ll learn from Craig and Lachlan who are responsible for bridging this gap at Microsoft using two concrete examples - Windows Server containers in Kubernetes and Azure Policy + gatekeeper – to explore questions such as:How can open source community philosophies be followed while working with closed source?Are the APIs of closed-source sufficiently available and documented for integration?How do consumers assure that their investment in a mixed system is safe?How do the business models assure that the integrations will be supported and stable?After this session you’ll have a better grasp of how to expand your project through interfacing with closed source software while mitigating the associated risks.
