More and more companies want to build internal communities and workflow inspired by open source, a movement often known as InnerSource. Drawing on his experience working with Huawei, Deutsche Bank, HackerOne, and Microsoft, Jono Bacon provides a comprehensive guide for building an internal InnerSource community. Jono delves into the methodology of building not just open source workflow but also, more importantly, an open source culture in your company, covering the software development lifecycle, QA, communication channels, project management, gaining support from teams, and measuring and managing an overall InnerSource effort. If you are exploring building an internal community in your organization or would like to optimize your existing work, this session is for you.
