Bring in the benefits of Open Source, behind your firewall

Successful communities thrive on transparent collaboration. This is one of the reasons many open source projects excel. A growing number of organizations discover that the principles of those open source projects can also be applied behind their own firewall. By doing this they increase productivity, build better software and avoid reinventing the wheel over and over again. This is known as InnerSource.

This talk will help companies understand the benefits and provide guidance in their journey to start adopting these practices. InnerSource requires a culture where people can take ownership of their work, transparent collaboration is encouraged, and contributions can happen across teams. This has proven to be a great way to drive a DevOps initiative as it helps to break down silos between development and operations teams. In this talk, Sebass will guide you through the principles of InnerSource, discuss how it benefits companies today, and how GitHub supports this culture.
