OpenSUSE's Jos Poortvliet: Collaborate or Become Obsolete
Last month, Jos Poortvliet's job as openSUSE community manager brought his career full-circle.
He was chosen to lead a discussion on open governance at the Summit of New Thinking in Berlin. The open innovation concept is what got him interested in free software communities while studying organizational psychology, and it's an idea he tries to merge into growing the openSUSE community.
Poortvliet now has a decade of evangelism for the free software movement as well as a unique perspective on the open source community. Poortvliet holds a degree in organizational psychology from the University of Utrecht.
The OpenSUSE project, formerly SUSE Linux, is a community program sponsored mainly by SUSE.
