« How Precise are the Analysts? | Main | Comparing Disasters »

There was a nice little event in Bratislava called Open Source Weekend. It was organized by Slovak Society for Open Information Technologies. It is quite a long time since I had a public talk therefore I've decided that this a good opportunity to change that. Therefore I had quite an unusual presentation for this kind of event. The title was: How to Get Rich by Working on Open Source Project?.

This was really an unusual talk for the audience that is used to talks about Linux hacking and Python scripting. It was also unusual talk for me as I still consider myself to be an engineer and not an entrepreneur. But it went very well. For all of you that could not attend here are the slides.

The bottom line is that it is very unlikely to ever get really rich by working on open source software. I also believe that the usual "startup" method of funding based on venture capital is not very suitable for open source projects (I have written about this before). Self-funded approach looks like it is much more appropriate.
