Yahoo’s Adventure with Apache Traffic Server

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk attempts to shed light on the fascinating story of how Yahoo took its eyes off the ball of nurturing an open source project that it had created, Apache Traffic Server (ATS), only to refocus & make up lost time to start engaging extensively with the ATS community.

We will start with a brief history of the ATS project. We will then talk about why Yahoo moved towards developing an alternative, proprietary technology & how it affected the adoption of & contribution to ATS. Next, we share the drivers for the big decision to stop investing in that proprietary technology & embrace the open source ATS once again. We will conclude with the learnings about open source software & community gained by Yahoo & best practices pertaining to open source projects. It will detail challenges & opportunities, how best to leverage them to advance the business & contribute to open source ecosystem
