Last autumn, the OSC was co-host with the BCS Open Source Specialist Group of Open for Business as part of the Wuthering Bytes festival. This was a one day conference to help those wanting to start their own open source business, or to use open source more widely in their existing business.
We recorded (almost) all the talks, to provide a permanent repository of information that will serve as an invaluable resource to those running, starting up or considering starting, their own open source business.

The entire video set is also available as a playlist, allowing you to relive the day in its entirety. Amanda Brock gave her talk via Skype, and unfortunately we were unable to capture the audio, but we are able to offer her slides.
The event was very well received by all who attended, and by popular request, we hope to run a follow up event as part of Wuthering Bytes 2016. I’ll be writing more about this later in the year.
