Peter is Interested in creating products with a sustainable community process and Open Participation especially. Trying to formulate the arguments of why industrial companies (i.e. non-IT companies) should invest money into OSS projects by actively participating, instead of paying consultants inhouse, and in the process create a better value proposition for their and ensure sustainable development and support for the externally managed OSS parts.
