The OCTOpod: Conversations with SUSE’s Office of the CTO

Host Alan Clark sits down with leaders and experts in the tech community in the OCTOpod: Conversations with SUSE's Office of the CTO (that's OCTO). Alan has spent his career in enterprise software with a focus on open source advocacy and emerging tech. He’s contributed in many ways – from code to chairs, from networking to cloud. He has served on the Open Infrastructure Foundation, the Linux Foundation, openSUSE, Open Mainframe project, and many more. He’s met lots of great people along the way, and in Season One, he’ll sit down with a few of them to talk about the latest trends and challenges in open source. These include findings from a report on Why IT Leaders Choose Open, how to manage a community, the importance of diversity and inclusion in open source, and much more.
