Last week I took part as master of ceremonies on an special event for FLOSS developers at .. Microsoft Spain offices! The idea for the meeting was to explore the different FLOSS technologies already supported by Microsoft Azure with speakers from different companies and communities like MongoDB, PhoneGap/Cordova, etc.
The event is part of the new openness strategy that is driving the company. But, I have thought about how open is really this movement? Of course, they are releasing a lot of code as Open Source, but is the company contributing to other FLOSS projects beyond their own ones? And by suprise, the answer has come from our own dashboards.
