Launched in December 2008, BrowserMob set out to change the way load testing is done - all using the cloud and open source. Learn from the founder how he built a high performance testing product, and how the operational support the cloud provided and speed to market of open source enabled the company to not only profit from day one, but to be acquired within a year and a half of it's launch.
Most open source start-ups have some sort of lock on the code - dual licensing, contributor agreements, "open core" add-ons and more. But is it possible to start a profitable company without any of those - with just skilled people delivering expert service and developing new code in the community? I don't just think it's possible - I'm doing it!
