SXSW 2019

Developing an Inner-source Model for Enterprises


As technology teams grow beyond offices to remote cities around the world, silo’s and tech debt can occur, getting in the way of streamlining tech processes and scaling software development. Meanwhile, the open source culture and practice is thriving among millions of developers who are collaborating every second testing, fixing bugs and quickly creating more flexible technology without knowing who they are working with. In this talk, Martin Brodbeck, CTO at Shutterstock will share best practices in applying open source methodologies internally, to drive innovation and encourage reusable technology within an enterprise. Brodbeck will outline the personnel, structural and cultural changes necessary to set an inner-source model up for success.
