More and more enterprises are working with open source code and communities and adopting and using InnerSource methodologies—and are economic development partners in cities globally. The InnerSource Common Summit at the inaugural Baltimore-Washington Open Source Week is a key curated event helping to galvanize and give structure to the open source, InnerSource, and municipal source activities in the Baltimore-Washington area. Join Jacob Green to learn about the efforts of the overlapping communities and institutions that are hosting the ISC Fall Summit – Baltimore, the City of Paris connection, and where these efforts are heading.
