So, little introduction, and since Shane already linked the linkedin profile, let's make it more synthetic ( or not ).
I'm now Software Technologies Lead and Process at Cariad SE, and working in several topics in the compliance area.
In the last 4 years in my previous company I started in parallel the topics of compliance to my current project at that time, and this grew up on me to the part that became my today's job at Cariad.
I've been playing with OpenSource for more time than I can remember (25+ years), and "survived" all the evolutions in my so-called career, from the research labs usage, to university, to governments first adoptions, to the initial industry onboard ( tech ) to the current state, which lead to the next final step..
I honestly believe we will reach the point that "Open Source is dead !"
Why ? Because we reach overall dominance, no company anymore can bear or develop or use a software closed on the verge to become irrelevant, dead on the water projects or dangerously being on security issues that it can't control.
Being costs, security, long term survival, doesn't matter the reason, no company as big or smaller will question open source, they will embrace it as the normal, and then open source will not be more the exception, but the rule.
And there we go, since this is the normal, compliance and security became more relevant as the most important part after development even
Leading them to the reason why I am here, to improve what we have and provide better solutions to such important work.
Thanks ( and sorry for the "small" bio" )
