Building Tech Communities Inside Companies
2022-05-15, 10:55–11:25, Gallery

Can one bring the open-source style of community inside a company? Yes! It can be done and it should be done.

All enterprises aim to be agile. The chances to have a bunch of people passionate about a specific technology grows with the company size. Often, especially in enterprises, the tech engineers are siloed in their tribes/product centers and can't really collaborate. The "Spotify model" praised by the business is not helping here.

This presentation will cover the bootstrapping of a Kubernetes community in a enterprise. It will showcase a step-by-step framework that can be adapted and replicated for building similar communities. The focus will be on the many benefits it brought to internal engineers, the business and on the impact it can have on the wider open source community.
