Build a business on Open Source and Ruby

Adrian Marin

I've been building Avo, and open-source admin panel framework for about three years now.

It started as a side-project and just to see if I could do it, and now it's a lively project with about 150 paying customers, and more than 400 apps running it in production.

I made many mistakes and learned a lot along the way. I'd like to share those mistakes and tips and tricks on how to avoid them.


Building a business is not easy. Selling to developers is even harder. I chose the difficult path to do both and I've been lucky enough to survive it.

I'll be sharing my learnings about building a business, maintaining a tight repository, keeping to a steady release cycle, choosing what to work on, and taking commercial decisions in the process.
