Session 27: Microsoft Open AI

Microsoft has a strong open-source program that encourages contribution, respects license obligations, and allows engineers to use open source with ease, work in the open, release projects, and be secure.

Today, it’s not uncommon that we use over 150,000 open-source components each month while building products and services.

Relentless automation, engineering system innovation, and making it easy for our developers to “fall into the pit of success” have been key to using open source at enterprise-scale.

Here are just a few of the ways that we’ve built a strong open-source program. We’re sharing our process in hopes it helps others be more successful in open source too.
