"LG Electronics has been actively using Linux since 2006 for products like DTVs, BD players, settop boxes and smart phones. As the open source software takes major portion of the product software, it presented a lot of challenges like setting up open source compliance processes, catching up with the frequent release cycle of the open source software, managing fragmentation and collaborating with the open source communities. In this speech, I will present these challenges and how we managed to overcome them after much trial and error.This presentation will give practical insights to senior engineers struggling to persuade management to actively participate in the open source activities, as well as managers trying to find the best practice in working with the open source software."
