In recent years, open source software has evolved from being purely a community-driven initiative to a full-fledged product in its own right. As a result, many organizations are now treating open source as a strategic product and investing heavily in its development, marketing, and distribution. In this talk, we'll explore what it means to treat open source as a product, and discuss strategies for building and scaling successful open source projects in this new paradigm. We'll cover key topics such as identifying market needs, developing a roadmap, building a user community, and creating a sustainable business model. We'll discuss how to measure and optimize the success of your open source product, including metrics for user engagement, adoption, and retention. We'll explore how to leverage data to make informed product decisions, and how to use feedback from the open source community to drive continuous improvement. Whether you're a developer looking to build a successful open source project, a business leader looking to leverage open source for strategic advantage, or a community manager looking to build and engage a vibrant user community, this talk will provide you insights and best practices for succeeding in the rapidly-evolving world of open source as a product.
