Odoo Community, Building Truly Open Source Business Apps
Odoo, formerly OpenERP, is an open source platform to build business applications, now embracing an Open Core business model, at odds with strict Open Source values.
An independent Odoo Community Association (OCA) was created by community members, with the mission to support the community's collaborative efforts. With the adoption of the Open Core business model by the Odoo editor, the OCA has also taken the role to uphold the Open Source values and promote a sustainable balance in the Odoo ecosystem.
In this talk we will learn about the Odoo project, the mission and work of the OCA, and the complex dynamics in this heterogeneous ecosystem.
