Now in its third year, the World of Open Source Global Spotlight Survey continues its exploration into adoption, participation, and challenges of open source. This year focuses on the use/consumption of open source software, contribution trends, the value proposition of open source, and its sustainability around the world. The research is used to inform strategy for business and government stakeholders as well as policy as it relates to open source. 

Your experience and perspective is invaluable to this project! This survey should take 10 minutes of your time.

Your participation in this survey will help others in your community. For the first 300 complete responses, LF Research will donate to the Linux Foundation’s Travel Fund, up to a cap of $3000 USD. This fund enables open source developers and community members to attend events that they would otherwise be unable to due to a lack of funding.

You will also receive a discount code on the confirmation page which can be used for a 30% discount on any Linux Foundation e-learning training course or certification exam.
