Good Opportunity for Atlassian? Release Stride as FOSS

 

First, Commendations are due to the entire Atlassian Team

One of the first thoughts that came to mind when I saw the announcement was how far the Stride product has come in a short period of time.   A little familiarity with the underlying Stride starting components and my own experience in both global industrial and startup Software Engineering development, delivery and support leaves me with a strong sense a respect for what you have accomplished.    Congratulations, a job well done!

 

Second, Is Releasing Stride as FOSS a good opportunity for Atlassian?

If the leadership team has not yet done so I encourage giving the topic a look.

Just sharing a idea from the outside.  I have been working to plan a migration of startup work to Bitbucket + the Atlassian ecosystem.  Through this work I have become aware of how the open visible and assessible nature of FOSS around some of Atlassian's competitors have created a wide range of existing interdependencies slowing a migration:  

  • Numerous technical interdependencies that will take a long time to replace. 
  • Visibility of other teams engineering and ops teams pipeline work for enables speed through ideation, validation & leverage components and scripts.
  • A higher availability of ready, environment familiar development and ops engineers

 

So much good professional, foundational engineering work and Atlassian ecosystem integration work went into Stride.   Would continuing Stride as a FOSS starting platform, entry to the Atlassian ecosystem be a good strategy to gain share and focus of startup investment and globally the younger aspiring engineers who will be the bulk of the work force in 10 years?    

Just sharing a idea.  

 

 

Again, Congrats to the Stride team!  

Best to All.

Yes!  Implementing a communications tool is a significant effort, and then to have it killed so quickly is quite a punch in the guts. Atlassian, please consider open-sourcing Stride.
