Open Source developer's life in GIFs

    Sberbank is the largest bank in Russia and Eastern Europe. Our team in Sbertech teaches Sberbank efficient work with Free & Open Source Software. You can read more about this on Habr (what we exactly do, yet in Russian).

    One of the main challenges is to open the mind of managers and engineers for using FOSS (Free & Open Source Software) properly. Because we have a lot of them, we have tried to use GIFs for answer the most common questions.

    Immediately after understanding the limitation of liability our managers begin to suspect that they are invited to the troupe of some infernal mindless freakshow:

    «Wait, we are efficient managers and we can help them to develop this product much better» they think, but…

    image

    Further immersion usually happens with lawyers and concerns legal issues. And we are happy if the lawyers aprove projects, which are distributed under such licenses as “THE BEER-WARE LICENSE”. Of course, it requires a little budget for IP clearance…

    After getting deeper in the FOSS with its weird stuffs, somebody is going to build his own theme park with blackjack and hookers (contributors)

    image

    or going to buy a vendor release! This is a much better idea of course…

    image

    and finally wouldn’t touch FOSS even with a ten-foot pole

    image

    But we can not allow our bosses to make the biggest mistake of their life

    image

    But sometimes it seems that the idea with a fork is correct.
    Almost every time after weeks of discussions, rework and discussions again…

    image

    discussions and rework, rework and discussions again

    image

    and again

    image

    But when a public API changes — we are #1

    image

    We also prove everyday that working outside the office is more effective

    image

    or review legal issues with our legal department

    image

    and prove that work outside the office is more effective

    image

    and then again prove…

    image

    But of course we should thank our colleagues for the fact that they did not interfere with our work.
    And for letting us to make Free & Open Source in enterprise real

    image

    Separately, we would like to thank one large Corporation from Redmond for buying Github…

    image

    But you do invest a lot in Open Source.

    We would like to thank Anton Churaev, Open Source leader in Sberbank and Sbertech, for his assistance in this article's preparation. He gave us a lot of GIFs and ideas. You can read more about Open Source in Sberbank here (in Russian).
