Finding the right project management solution for your team can be very hard. Finding an open source project management solution may be even harder. That’s the mission of OpenProject: to build an enterprise-ready, web-based, open source project management solution that allows teams to collaborate throughout the project life cycle. Additionally, the project aims to replace proprietary software like Microsoft Project Server or Jira.
To learn more about OpenProject, we caught up with Birthe Lindenthal, Chairperson of the OpenProject Foundation’s Board of Directors. One of the most interesting things I discovered through this interview was about the OpenProject Foundation itself. It’s inspired by the Apache Software Foundation and the Ubuntu Foundation. And, there are inherent advantages to having a foundation control the open source software.
