Talk Abstract:

Yahoo!'s Open Strategy is Yahoo!'s big bet to "deliver open, industry-leading platforms that attract the most publishers and developers."

"These platforms will harness Yahoo!'s unique strengths – our rich and relevant user experiences (we're #1 in 7 verticals), our massive audience (half a billion users/month), and our deep data repositories (content, content, content) – and open them to the innovations of the developer community. In other words, the platform ties together social features and rich content units across Yahoo! properties. Along with the above, Yahoo! is committed to contributing to the open source community. Several other Yahoo! technologies like Hadoop, Pig, ZooKeeper and so on have been open sourced and Yahoo! continues to contribute towards to  the same."
