LF Research Opens Call for Sponsors & Partners for World of Open Source Global Spotlight 2023 Survey
The Linux Foundation | 22 March 2023
Linux Foundation Research is calling for sponsors and partners for a new research study on open source trends and opportunities on a global scale. Following the success of the 2022 Europe Spotlight survey and report, the Global Spotlight 2023 project will greatly expand our view of open source participation in different regions, with valuable insight to better understand and support open source participation around the world.
The 2023 survey will generate insights into regional open source trends, including:
- The scope of open source programs across organizations and industries
- Opportunities and challenges in private and public sector engagement in open source
- The value proposition of open source
- The leading open source technologies and best practices
The target sample for this survey is open source contributors and developers who have an understanding of the role of open source software in their organization or within a given industry. The research is relevant to decision makers from all functions and sectors, including managers, executives, policy makers, and others involved in open source initiatives.
The results of this survey will help us identify regional trends and opportunities, and will facilitate the development of this year’s Europe Spotlight, Japan Spotlight, and other region-specific reports.
