AGENDA

  • [05 mins] Welcome
  • [25 mins] Zack Koppert (GitHub): Sharing and transparency can seem like the antithesis of established governments. From US federal agencies to state governments, Zack has seen both the potential and need for InnerSource as well as some of its biggest obstacles. In this talk he will be covering his experience with recognizing potential value and obstacles to InnerSource in government, as well as providing a framework for how to help bond the seemingly incompatible cultures.
  • [25 mins] Community Discussion: This part of the community call will be held under the Chatham House Rule. Participants will be free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed. This part of the event will not be recorded.
  • [5 mins] Wrap-up
