L'objectif de cette présentation est de partager les idées, recettes et astuces mises en œuvre qui ont permis de financer les projets open source XWiki et Cryptpad sans capital externe. Depuis maintenant 14 ans, XWiki a pu s'autofinancer en écrivant du code Open Source et en le partageant avec la communauté.

Dans cette conférence nous partegerons les recettes qui ont fonctionnées, celles qui ont été des échecs, celles qui challenge les modèles ouverts et surtout les recettes qui ont permis d'augmenter la création de logiciel libre chez XWiki.

XWiki est un logiciel Open Source créé il y a 14 ans par Ludovic Dubost et développé sous licence LGPL. Le logiciel XWiki est utilisé par des milliers d'entreprises pour les aider à organiser l'information. CryptPad, créé par l'équipe XWiki en 2016, est un pad crypté en temps réel permettant de partager des informations sans exposer votre contenu à votre fournisseur de cloud. Ces logiciels ont été possibles en trouvant des moyens de payer les salaires de l'équipe XWiki pour écrire des logiciels open source.

The purpose of this presentation is to share the ideas and recipes that have been used to finance the open source projects XWiki and Cryptpad without external capital. For 14 years, XWiki has been able to self-finance while writing open source code and sharing it with the community.

In this conference we will share the ideas that have worked, those that have been failures, those that have challenged our open model and especially the recipes that have allowed to increase the creation of free software at XWiki.

XWiki is open source software created 14 years ago by Ludovic Dubost and developed under LGPL license. XWiki software is used by thousands of companies to help organize information. CryptPad, created by the XWiki team in 2016, is a zero-knowledge realtime online editor that allows you to share and collaboratively edit information without exposing your content to your cloud provider. This software was possible by finding ways to pay the XWiki team's salaries to write open source software.
