At DesignFirst, we dedicate to promoting the market of genuine Open-source firmware. We intend to do so by example.
Because in the technological industry we all have witnessed the compromised outcomes in open-source hardware(OSHW) and open-source software(OSS), where some companies use those good concepts mainly or only as marketing strategies, but do not really commit. Unfortunately, we can already see such first attempts in the emerging space of "open-source firmware", by both companies and events. We had a team discussion how to approach this serious situation and it was a unanimous decision to simply lead by example. Therefore we are organizing this Lightning talk, sharing not just our vision, but our business model for end products based on open-source firmware.
