The ASWF and related open source projects have transformed the way products are built at Autodesk. The company is not only a major contributor, it's also a major consumer of OSS projects. We wanted to listen to the stories of the people building the products and hear what they think of the ASWF and the open source ecosystem -- what do they love and what do they hate? Are there any misconceptions? How could we make their jobs easier and the resulting products better? We will endeavor to portray the reality of open source in a large organization, both the struggles and the wins, through interviews with people in many different roles: developers, architects, executives, engineering managers, product owners, product designers, QA, documentation, support, and marketing experts. This includes people outside the traditional M&E market/vertical. In this talk we use quotes, metrics, word clouds, graphs, and videos to present our learnings from interviews with forty-eight people whose work lives are intertwined with the ASWF, and related projects such as USD, as they build some of the most widely used software products in the VFX and gaming industries.
