The world is rapidly changing. Ireland has long been a critical technology player on the world stage, but has so far not been a leader in Open Source.

Flies Like an Arrow: Open Source Compliance with Scale in Telco Environment - Ingrid Viitanen & Jonne Soininen, Nokia
Nokia is one of the leading players in the telecommunications industry. Nokia has multiple business groups with hundreds of products and tens of thousands of engineers. Nokia's product portfolio ranges from highly embedded products working on specialized hardware to cloud native applications. Naturally, many of these products use open source of some kind. Needless to say, Nokia operates at scale. This requires a scalable and adaptable open source process that ensures open source compliance while enabling the product creation with minimal interference. This presentation will describe how this was done. How Nokia build a flexible open source process that enables Nokia's product creation taking also into account the need for the product groups to contribute to open source while working in the upstream first and how the Open Source Program Office (OSPO) was organized to take into account the legal, open source and patenting aspects.
