Meet the Experts Behind Samsung’s Open Source Software Development

 There was a time when, by and large, companies that created software would closely guard what they had developed. Now, the software industry is driven by sharing and collaboration. It is becoming commonplace for companies to make their code open source and freely available to the public, which can result in their technology becoming the new standard.

Since 2013, Samsung Electronics has been a board member of the world’s largest open source community, the Linux Foundation. In addition, Samsung Research, the company’s advanced R&D hub, which leads the development of future technologies for its SET Business, has demonstrated its deep commitment to promoting the advancement of open source software by hosting its annual Samsung Open Source Conference (SOSCON) in Korea.
