Your company uses open source software, but no one’s keeping track. You have engineers who want to make contributions, but you don’t have any policies. Someone just raised an open source issue, and no one knows who takes the lead for it. You’re starting to suspect that you might need to establish an open source programs office. But where to start? How can you help your company become open source friendly without stifling innovation or passion? This talk is based on our own experiences starting open source programs offices at PayPal, SanDisk, and Comcast. We will address fundamental questions of when to start an OSPO, how to get sponsorship, where it should live, and its role in transforming the open source innovation work that the company does.
