Open Source is one of the core tenets of the PHP language and the community. PHP would not be here if it was not for some of the ideals around software development that occurred in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. How did the open source movement start, and why is PHP one of the few languages that still hold true to those early days of programming? Let's talk about where open source started, and find out how we got here.

Really enjoyable, a refreshing talk in a schedule filled with specific technical talks. Chris' delivery was excellent as usual.

I'm a big fan of the Hackers book and the general hacker ethos, so it was a fun look back at how we got to where we are.
