Open Source Startup Podcast E1: Todd Persen

Todd Persen, Co-founder & CEO, Era Software (prev. Co-founder & CTO, InfluxData)

In this episode, we'll dig into the InfluxData founding story as well as Todd's decision to make his new company, EraDB, closed source. We'll also discuss the metrics to determine if an open-source project is a success, what features users will pay for, and the benefits (and drawbacks) of having an open-source component at a startup.
