Did you know that many organizations including industry innovators like Microsoft, Google, and Facebook, have established open source programs? Immersing your company in open source culture is a competitive advantage that will allow you to hire the best talent, decrease risk, and innovate by increasing your shipping speed.
An open source program empowers anyone within your organization to determine when code should be made public and helps them safely navigate the process of doing so. This course will guide you as you create that open source program. You'll establish guidance and governance for your open source program, examine what current innovators are doing, and leverage existing templates and resources. This hands-on lab will help you tackle some big questions and give you a clear path forward for becoming an open source enterprise.
