Understand inner-source fundamentals: egalitarianism, meritocracy, and measuring success

Is your organization resistant to using open source technology? Warm them up to the idea by “innersourcing” your development efforts. Join our webinar to see how the inner-source concept uses open source, community-style development methods and best practices in internal development organizations.


In the third part of this webinar series, Guy Martin from Red Hat and Andrew Aitken from Olliance Consulting, a division of Black Duck, discuss successful inner-source efforts.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The value of creating and providing open project access regardless of rank/position.
  • The benefits of promoting the idea that developers’ contributions determine their level of influence and role within the project.
  • Elements you need to incorporate into your metrics to define success in your inner-source community.
