Any developer can put a stack together, but according to Glen Martin, director of product management at SpikeSource, the real challenge is maintaining that set of components over time. In this tech talk, Martin discusses how open source distribution models for corporations work at SpikeSource. Topics included are:

- What a stack is and how to integrate and test a stack
- The benefits to using Spikesource instead of assembling a stack individually
- What is included in the SpikeSource core stack
- SpikeSource's test upload service
- Future extensions of the stack
- How SpikeSource is differentiating themselves from other open source integrators
- How SpikeSource contributes to the open source community
- Where the business model will move over the next few years
