InnerSource Day at OSCON is a gathering of industry practitioners discussing real-world implementations of this community-inspired, transformational open source approach to software development within the enterprise. InnerSource was inspired by the pervasive spread of open source software throughout the areas of operating systems, cloud computing, programming languages, and JavaScript frameworks and elsewhere. A number of companies, led by PayPal and its InnerSource Commons, are adopting the practices of this powerful open source movement to create an internal company collaboration under the rubric of InnerSource.

This one-day event is centered around 25-minute sessions detailing the experience of those leading the way in the InnerSource movement, including leading internet commerce facilitator PayPal.
