Brent Beer: Collaboration behind your Firewall
Open source works through similarly-aligned teams and individuals, so why do you think of your job and open source as two different things? Treating your internal projects as if they were open source allows more freedom in how you work. Maybe you are looking for a way to spend a few days a week on one internal tool, and the rest on another. Do you know of a project that is missing instructions on how to get started? Fix that! Or perhaps you don't code at all and you want to add to the discussion of a project's design. With GitHub, this is not only possible, but can happen naturally every day. Hear first hand from Brent how you can leverage the patterns used at GitHub to make your in-house development more enjoyable, easier to jump in and contribute to, and more like the open source projects we all know and love.
