Why Contribute to Open Source
Two Sigma takes major steps to protect our IP, but we also believe in the importance of contributing to the open source software (OSS) community. In this talk, I’ll cover the evolution of Two Sigma's thinking and policies over the past five years, and make a case for how other companies can be simultaneously self-interested and altruistic when it comes to OSS.
Julia is an open source project manager at Two Sigma Investments. Her background is in music, but she’s been learning more about technology and scientific computing ever since she joined Two Sigma in the spring of 2010. She’s enjoyed every step of her quest to learn more about open source software, from getting to know what makes the products developed at Two Sigma special to writing backing tracks for her musical Reb + VoDKa + Me on Sonic Pi. Julia has spoken about open source engagement within the finance industry at various meetups and at PyData 2017, JupyterCon 2018 (keynote), and the OpenFinTech Forum in 2018. www.juliameinwald.com.
