Large scale corporations are generally reserved and focused on developing proprietary enterprise softwares. Open source software is a fairly new concept that has gained popularity in the field of IT, specifically OpenStack. Here at Symantec, we discovered a need to become of part of OpenStack community. We would like to share various community building strategies we have been following, including :


  • Why should an Organization invest in Open Source?

  • Shift from Proprietary Software to Open Source Software

  • Our process and approach towards community building

  • How to conduct effective and efficient Meetups and Hackathons

  • Symantec's journey to OpenStack Gold Membership in the short span of a year
