OpenHuawei.org: Innovating Open Development at Huawei
Open Source and community-based development is often seen as a substantial risk by organizations with sensitivity around information security and intellectual property protection. Huawei, like many other telecommunications and technology companies in its class is interested in becoming more directly engaged with the Linux community, while minimizing disclosure and exposure of product road maps and technology. The OpenHuawei initiative is a live experiment in harmoniously creating information-flow between Huawei's product teams and the Linux community, allowing Huawei innovation and contributions without compromising intellectual property. This presentation provides answers for developers and management staff interacting with security-sensitive product development and open-source projects who would like to be able to contribute to Open Source and still develop differentiating products.
