Mentorship Session: Which Hat Do I Wear Today? The Balancing Act of Working with Upstream and Product Teams

Which Hat Do I Wear Today?
The Balancing Act of Working with Upstream and Product Teams

February 17 | 9:30 – 11:00 am PST

Join us for Which Hat Do I Wear Today? The Balancing Act of Working with Upstream and Product Teams, with Shuah Khan, Kernel Maintainer & Fellow, The Linux Foundation.

Navigating open source and corporate cultural differences is a delicate balancing act and challenging. It is easier to work exclusively in either side of this divide and takes finesse and skill to know when to wear which hat and be productive and bring value to both sides.

In this webinar, Shuah will share her insights on balancing product needs with the open source project objectives.

The session will begin with an overview by Shuah Khan (45 minutes) and followed by Q&A – an opportunity to both ask Shuah questions and for group discussion (45 minutes).

Join us for a complimentary live mentoring session!
