Releasing Code as Open Source Made Easy - SAP's Process and Tooling - Peter Giese, SAP SE
Managing open source at scale in global enterprises is all about continuous improvement. In this presentation, Peter will describe the evolution of SAP’s outbound open source process and tooling from its initial state that often took several weeks and required lots of manual steps to its current form that only takes a few days and is largely automated. SAP‘s new and improved process for releasing code as open source enables developers to easily start a new open source project and contribute code while being compliant and secure. The entire process workflow is automated and executed via GitHub in order to seamlessly integrate it into the standard development toolset of our developer community. This way our developers and our OSPO members benefit from using the same tooling that allows them to have full transparency into the status of any given request while being able to manage open source projects at scale with enterprise-grade quality and security.

Which Foundation for my Open Source Project? - Tobie Langel, UnlockOpen
You did it! The open source project you launched has picked-up steam. At first, only a few developers tried it out, but soon more developers joined them, companies followed in their path, and you now even have a number of large tech companies using it. As a result, you're receiving a steady stream of bug reports and, increasingly, pull requests from contributors all over the world. Your project has a community. It's healthy. It's growing. So far, you've been the one setting the project's direction, but you're well aware this won't continue working for long. You need to bring in more people to help maintain the project, and they'll want a say in how it moves forward. You've also heard from other large corporations who'd be interested to contribute to the project or use it. The next steps are obvious; you need to move the project to a software foundation. But which one should you pick and why? We'll look at why you'd want to move a project to a foundation, and what doing so involves. You'll have a rundown of the various foundations and options, and their pros and cons. We'll arm you with enough knowledge so you can ask the right questions and make the best decision.
