Free and Open Source Software is a concept that has proven successful for building not only useful and successful projects, but companies. But while offering code for free consumption isn't always possible for every business, using the principles of 'craft' code are.

We're talking Craft as in beer. Over the past 30 years, plucky little local craft brewers have not only taken on the giants of Anheuser-Busch and Miller-Coors, but thrived. What can new software startups learn?

This talk will discuss:
* How can a small companies compete with giants?
* How can you embrace the DevOps principle of Sharing when your recipe/code is what sets you apart from the competition?
* The value of local communities and personal relationships. (See also: Why DevOpsDays and why it's successful)
