Learning Path: InnerSource

InnerSource is the application of open source methodologies to internally-developed software. While simple to define, InnerSource can be difficult to explain and implement successfully. This learning path gives a simple, easy to understand introduction to InnerSource. It introduces key terms, concepts, and principles for effective InnerSource along with explanations and real examples. It is intended to bring newcomers up to speed as well as provide those with experience a common vocabulary to use when discussing more advanced concepts.
