InnerSource was created for large enterprises to leverage the speed and advancement of fast-paced, Agile development cycles within their organizations, and companies across the industry—not all of them large—have recognized its productivity benefits and capabilities. Kristopher Francisco offers an overview of Open Pay, an InnerSource model providing the flexibility and rapid development of open source with the procedural security of Inner Source.

Kristopher explores the internal process, workflow efficiencies, and overall compensation system leveraging autonomy, mastery, and purpose for rewarding developers beyond their base needs. Along the way, Kristopher also shares his experience leading cloud architecture across cross-functional teams at Apple, global projects at Chevron, and core open source contributions in Docke and demonstrates how his current company Evolute’s cloud management platform was developed by a dozen developers onboarded in under a week—all while protecting core company assets (e.g., USPTO 62/301,370).

Join in to learn key strategies for maintaining a project’s integrity, collaboration tools for accelerating development, review processes for maintainers and software engineers, and the foundational processes required for rapidly developing any technology across a virtual InnerSource team.
