Five years ago, a small group within Ericsson was asked to support a large development project to “work more like people do in open source.” John Landy tells Ericsson’s InnerSource story, sharing observations and lessons learned along the way. John then explains how this work has informed the development of new communities in Ericsson.

Topics include:

  • Why InnerSource?
  • Creating the environment: Teams, tools, repositories, etc.
  • Making collaborations happen
  • The pillars of community-developed software
