We all have a journey, a journey that shapes who and what we are. Ideals, hopes, dreams, and a constant stream of decisions helps make us who we are. The same is true of the idea of Open Source. The journey and story of Open Source has shaped the software landscape in the present and will continue to shape the direction of software into the future. As developers we should know this tale, this history, the important chapters that helped found the ideals of Open Source, and understand why PHP is one of the last truly Open Source projects still around.

A entertaining and informative talk on on open source history and why open source is so important.
I really enjoyed it and I started with a CoCo2 with only 16K :-)
Very enlightening and a great start to the event!
Chris gave an outstanding talk about the history and importance of Open Source, and how the PHP language is fully supported by the Open Source mandate of making a language truly open. He also did a great job of compelling all of us to give back to the Open Source community and spread our knowledge so others can learn. Awesome talk!!
Great look at the history of open source. I would have liked more discussion of the PHP community and how it uses open source but overall there was a lot of valuable history to cover.
Chris is an engaging speaker. Having this as the first talk of the day laid a good foundation for why events like this are good for the PHP community.
Super interesting and a very well-done presentation!
Chris is very personable as well as knowledgable. He has an engaging manner and a good pace. His slides were good and added to the presentation. I enjoyed his humor too.
Very well done presentation on the brief history of how the concept of open-source came to be! Awesome presentation with subtle humor in between, keeping the audience engaged.
Great historical perspective. Loved the nod to the CoCo; those manuals were also what got me interested in programming.
Chris had a great presentation
Engaging and informative talk.
Great talk, got me excited about PHP and writing code and sharing it. I really like having a talk like this kick things off in the morning.
Great way to kick off the day. An interesting overview and reminder of how we all got here!
